paula.paul (Birgit Paula Reiger & Bernd Stelzer) / Lubie (Genevieve Beaulieu & Claudine Thibault)

At first glance, you might not think this is the most realistic flower ring you've ever seen.

But first glances can be deceiving. This "ring machine," by Austrian designers Birgit Paula Reiger and Bernd Stelzer of paula.paul, includes a hidden button that controls the petals and stem, allowing them to droop or blossom as a real flower would.

Littlefly (Jeremy May) / Hannah Lobley

Unlike Monday's Memorings, these stacks of paper are no longer meant to be peeled apart. Littlefly, by London artist Jeremy May, is a collection of "literary jewels" made by cutting pages out of a book and laminating the sheets together. The resulting pieces are then re-inserted into the original book — the perfect display case. [See also: Betty Pepper]

Meryl Pataky / Ann Gérard

Yesterday's sharpeners not your style? Keeping in mind that the word "style" comes from the Latin stilus, meaning "writing instrument," check out these calligraphy rings by Florida artist Meryl Pataky. Made of silver, ink and a calligraphy nib, they're dedicated to "those literary masters who have changed [her] perspective of life."

Memorings / Ignacio Pilotto / Ana Canadas

If you don't spend all weekend just itching to get back into the office on Monday, you must not be using the right stationery. These sticky-note rings will have you counting down the minutes until your next meeting. Memorings by Superdesign; available, among other places, at PA Design.

Of course, you'll need something to keep that pencil pointy, too. Sharpener rings by Argentina's Ignacio Pilotto.

Lucy Derickson / Frankie Flood / UWM

I've exceeded my daily recommended intake of awesome. Milwaukee's Lucy Derickson made a mold of her face, divvied it into a grid, then turned each section into a ring. This is one of her projects as a student at the University of Wisconsin (UWM), which is also where yesterday's Patrick Walter is a student.

Patrick Charles Walter / Surface to Air

I wonder if you'd be allowed to board a plane wearing this ring.

Milwaukee metalsmith Patrick Charles Walter is all fired up about cannons.

Kloset / CC Skye

Bangkok's Mollika Ruangkritya, aka Kloset, takes you back in time with her "Reminiscence" collection. From prop plane earrings to bangles adorned with Slipstream sedans to the geometric architecture in the rings above, the collection is a great homage to the Art Deco period.

Grego Garcia Tebar / Romero Designs

Will 2010, at last, be the year of the baby-faced crystal knob ring? I certainly hope so. Don't miss the work of Spain's Grego Garcia Tebar!

Clean but complicated — that's the M.O. of Finnish jeweller Inni Pärnänen, who creates botanical jewellery with a geometric bent.

Above, her flower rings in burnt paper and wax.

Sergun / Claudia Steiner / Patricia Pla / Frey Wille

I hate the fact that when I see the red, blue and yellow squares of a Mondrian painting, my mind turns to hair gel. I guess those package designers knew what they were doing when they decided to co-opt one of the masters. You win this round, L'Oréal Paris, but here are some jewellers who bring things back into the art realm with their Mondrian-inspired pieces. Rings, above, by Turkey's Sergun (top), Austria's Claudia Steiner (mauve background), Spain's Patricia Pla (dark grey backgrounds) and California's Frey Wille (white background).

igo / Naomi Muirhead

Now that's my kind of emerald ring.

Japanese design duo Fumiko Yamauchi and Shinobu Marotta, aka igo, reinvent the emerald-, marquise- and heart-cut gemstone with these awesome outline rings. Of course, if gems aren't your style, you can always have an entire city wrapped around your finger instead:

  • 821 (Japan) - vintage pieces

  • Petra Class (San Francisco) - gold & gems

  • Azaara (Los Angeles) - ornate & bejeweled
