Polly van der Glas / Loved to Death

Go blonde — without the hassle of root touch-ups. This human hair ring is the creation of Australian jeweller Polly van der Glas, who also dabbles in other human parts, like these:

Also available in cast silver, if you don't want to sink your teeth into the real thing:

Ingrid Nilsen / Lucy Hutchings

I often like to collect images of similar rings from different designers but these, I think, stand on their own. I love the large but fragile shape of these box rings by Edinburgh-based Norwegian jeweller Ingrid Nilsen, who focussed on "the striking difference between the organic and geometric" and "the positive and the negative space of each piece."

Samantha Queen / Galit Meushar

I imagine there's a planet out there somewhere with plants that look just like these organic pod rings by UK jeweller Samantha Queen. Yes, right down to the faceted gemstones. In space, anything is possible.

Sophie Hanagarth / Ignacio & Corral

As crazy as I am about most things crunchy and salty, pretzels have never been in my snacking repertoire. The shape is much more attractive than the flavour, so I would gladly trade a bag of Rold Gold for just one of these hand-forged iron pretzel rings by French metalsmith Sophie Hanagarth. Fair trade, no? How 'bout two bags?

Ruth Wood / Imogen Belfield / Ammal Labib

Inspired by "ancient artefacts" and "the erosion and texture of materials," UK jeweller Ruth Wood creates rings that may look worn but also beg to be worn.

Imogen Belfield, another UK jeweller, is also drawn to raw, rough forms. Rather than stones, however, her metal rings are embedded with chunks of porcelain.

Malice in Wonderland / One Yellow Bird (Liz McKibbon)

Normally, a shrimp ring means one thing and one thing only: delivery device for cocktail sauce. These rings, however, change all that. By the way... to shrimp or not to shrimp? The answer is always "shrimp." Always.

For more animals and a skewed take on a fairytale world, visit Belgium's Malice in Wonderland.

Coco Dunmire / Hiroki Masuzaki

Juicy orange, leafy green and iron — a great cure for anemia, perhaps, but also a great cure for a Monday morning. After studying in places as varied as Kuwait and Poland and currently working in New York state, jeweller Coco Dunmire reveals The Secret Life of Jewels through her work in resin and metal.

Toz Design (Leyla Taranto) / Yusuke Hoashi

Sponges are cool. No other animal can double as a hand-held tool, allowing us a flicker of Flintstonian reality where birds are hedge trimmers and mammoths are showers. Natural sponges are still out there but, of course, most of us nowadays use synthetics — including Leyla Taranto of Turkey's Toz Design, who made these colourful sponge rings.

Above: another of her rings, from "Gypsy," one of many more collections on her site.

Alexandra Lindqvist / Kirsten Clausager
