Erica Leal / Antamina (Atsushi Yamamoto) / Alexandra Blak (Alexandra Anson)

Some women like to wear ice. Others, icebergs. This "miniature sculpture" iceberg ring in silver, topaz and magnets is Erica Leal's take on optical illusions. Also shown are the Halifax jeweller's constellation rings and rings based on that old Skip-It toy.

This ring, believe it or not, is a perfect fit.

It's an "over size" ring, another illusion, this time by Japan's Antamina (Atsushi Yamamoto). See more here.

Oh & Ah / Shere Design

Arthus-Bertrand for Hoon / Silvene Froiun

You could say I'm all aboard these subway train rings (sorry). Created by French jeweller Arthus-Bertrand for Hoon, they're part of an urban-themed collection that also includes ghettoblasters, gun cylinders and funky robots.

Lisovsky Jewellery (Alina Jessipovich) / Bronagh Kennedy

Who knew getting kicked in the back was an occupational hazard for jewellers? That's what Estonian artist Alina Jessipovich has endured while scouring the streets of London for found objects — and then bending over to pick them up. The busy city supplies not only her materials but also her inspiration, as she coats the "small scale rubbish" in layers of gold and silver to create bustling landscapes as packed as the city itself. Visit her site, Lisovsky Jewellery.

Chris Boland / Dalia Jurado

Similar in shape to yesterday's rings but using gems in place of glass are these rings by UK metalsmith Chris Boland. He considers gemstones "a visual punctuation mark" (I'm guessing exclamation point more than hyphen).

Pavel Novak / Alba Polenghi Lisca

Better have your smelling salts handy because Pavel Novak will have you swooning! The New Jersey-based Czech jeweller combines silver and hand-cut optical glass, creating these cool, geometric rings (and other jewellery). I'm obsessed.

Jonathan Mathew Boyd / Jung Yun Yoon

I can't seem to formulate a post about these rings so I'm going to blame my writer's block on UK jeweller Jonathan Mathew Boyd. I mean, clearly, he's sucked the words right out of my typewriter. Because that's how I blog — I dictate out loud while my pet monkey jabs away at her Smith Corona. Somehow, you are not surprised.

Alyssa Feather / Wellenzauber / Ksoaga

Is it hot in here or is it just me Pennsylvania's Alyssa Feather?

Germany's Wellenzauber (Andrea Debernitz) likes to play with fire, too.

CamerAg (Hyun-Seok Sim) / Red Freckles (Lisa Shulman)

Four out of five dentists recommend this ring.

When not creating silver beauties like the rings above, Korea's Hyun-Seok Sim is busy sculpting amazing cameras. Check them out on his site, CamerAg (as in camera + Ag, the chemical symbol for silver).

Elena Salmistraro / Claire Marfisi

I can handle matching my eyeshadow to my rings. Matching my skin? That could take some getting used to. Then again, who would notice? Everyone would be too busy checking out the wild ceramic creations on my fingers. Rings above by Italian fashion and product designer Elena Salmistraro of Alla's Design and Alkostudio.

Ute Kolar / Jo Candlish

Italy's Ute Kolar puts the petal to the metal — and the top must be down, because these beauties look wind-blown.

Bevel / Daduche (Daniella Zylbersztajn)

Most of us are familiar with Zeus, Aphrodite, Ares et al., but what about Xibalba, Camazotz and the hero twins, Hunahpu and Xbalanque? Inspired by the writings of Joseph Campbell, New York's Bevel draws on figures from Mayan mythology in creating their cool, somewhat menacing pieces.

Isabelle Hertzeisen / Mollive

Getting ready to tie one on this weekend? Let Isabelle Hertzeisen help you out with these rings that look like golden twist-ties.

Joomi Lim / Linn Lømo / Lok'd Jewelry

While New York's Joomi Lim is known for her cool spin on spikes and pearls, I especially love the screw detail on the underside of each spike. (Phillips head is always a fine choice when it comes to jewellery, though a Torx would work nicely, too.)

Also designing with spikes and pearls (of metal) is Norway's Linn Lømo, who made the rings above (including that terrifying gaping-beak bird!).

Iker Ortíz / Brigitte Von Wysiecki

Iker Ortíz cuts no corners when it comes to cutting corners. The Mexican jeweller brings Corian and stainless steel out of the kitchen, using the materials to fashion sleek, modern, geometric rings.

I Am Dorkas / Steven Brownlee

The mighty oak makes for a mighty ring. Brooklyn's I Am Dorkas hand-carves oak and cedar to create statement rings that highlight that gorgeous natural wood grain.
