SWITCHRING: a two-piece, interchangeable ring

CA$ 7,023

32

  

 

 

Switchring is a two-piece interchangeble ring.

  • The outer piece = the Switchring - is made up of two rings fused at the base. 
  •  The Wedge - a crescent shaped ring that slides into place.  

Once the ring is on your finger, the pieces don’t come apart. You are the essential piece of the puzzle!

 

You get to choose your Switchring combinations. 

You do the Mix. You do the Match.

  • Choose silver or any colour of gold - yellow, white or rose
  • Make it black with with black rhodium plating
  • Choose from many textures and patterns 
  • Add gemstones or diamonds!

You don’t just wear a Switchring, you create it!

 

 

 

Switchring was invented 20 years ago. It's two-piece ring design that I patented. The idea came from twisting a piece of wax into a figure 8 (or an infinity symbol) and  folding it in half. Then I started making different "wedges" for that ring. I made each of these Switchrings by hand and people would collect a different wedge every year.

After a few years, I started making a plastic version of the ring. It came in all colours and we printed different graphics and words on each ring. They were really fun and sold in countries around the world. 

I moved on from the plastic rings and designed other products but I always felt that I left Switchring unfinished. I'm here on Kickstarter to finally complete what I started 20 years ago - to make silver and gold Switchrings for everyone!

Technology has changed the jewellery industry. 3D printing and CAD imaging have allowed me to improved the design and add new patterns. 

The next step is to make new mould for each size so that every time you buy a Switchring, it fits perfectly.

 

 

 

Features

Switchring is designed for Women or Men. Sizes range from 3 to 13!

The ring can look delicate or tough. Simple or intricate. Dark or shimmering. You could have one for everyday and another for special occasions.

This Kickstarter campaign features only a few Switchring designs but there are over 100 combinations. We've got way more ideas for Switchrings including more textures, patterns and gemstones. Switchrings are handmade with solid 14k gold or .925 sterling silver and paired with ethically sourced diamonds and gemstones.

 

 

 If you love to stack your rings, you are going to love Switchring!

When you mix & match the Switchrings you get a fantastic combination of colour and texture without all the bulk of stacking rings that don't fit together. Switchrings taper at the bottom so the ring feels great and you get a wide, stacked ring look!

Switchrings are really comfortable!

 

 Switchrings make great wedding bands!

Two rings become one. Switchring was designed by folding an infinity symbol in half, forever is built into the ring.

 

 

 A questionnaire will be sent to you at the end of the campaign to determine your ring size and style choice. 

Please see the FAQs for more details regarding sizing. 

Please note that Rewards below are in Canadian dollars. 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

Even the packaging has been custom designed for Switchrings. 

Each box is beautifully wrapped in different colours of special velvet paper and holds the two pieces securely.

A certificate is included with each Switchring that details your ring size, materials and style.

 

 

Thank you for checking out my Kickstarter campaign! 

I would also like to thank all my friends and family who have supported my work for all these years. It has been my privilege to make jewellery that you have worn to celebrate life's milestones. Your loyalty and confidence has been a great source of encouragement.

Risks and challenges

I'm excited about making Switchrings again!
I've been making jewellery for a long time, specifically rings. I don't anticipate many production issues but I do expect a few ring size problems. I want you to be happy and I want the ring to fit perfectly the first time.
Fingers come in all shapes and sizes and they even can change size throughout the day and year!
Thin rings can feel bigger than wide rings.
Please take the time to have a local jeweller size your finger. Tying a string or wrapping a strip of paper around your finger can be inaccurate. Did you know that the difference between a size 6 and 7 is less than 1mm in diameter? Not a big difference but you can certainly feel the difference.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send a message.
Thank you for checking out my Kickstarter campaign! Please share with your friends and family!
