How many times per day does your wedding ring get in the way?
Or how many times per day do you have to take your ring off? Let's face it, traditional wedding rings get in the way of EVERYTHING! Sports, fun, play, swimming, exercise, work, your job and everything in between. And tragically, your ring can hurt you and most ring-related accidents often lead to permanent finger damage and amputation. The world needs something different, people deserve a better ring... and that's why we created the Enso Ring. It's durable, ultra thin, and you don't have to take it off for anything! It's so comfortable, you'll forget it's even on. But really, the most motivating influence for us has been safety. Enso Rings are the safest rings on the market. They're the only rings engineered with Anti Ring Avulsion Technology which protects your finger from ring avulsion, degloving and amputation. Which is perfect for just about every profession and activity. WARNING: do not google search ring avulsion and degloving unless you have a stomach made of iron - the images are very graphic and disturbing.
Enso Rings Created Exclusively For This Kickstarter
Here are the rings you'll receive when you pick a pledge and help support our kickstarter! Men's and Women's sizes and colors available.
Jimmy Fallon and Ring Avulsion?
You might have heard that Jimmy Fallon recently suffered a terrible injury in which his finger was almost torn off of his hand! Jimmy’s accident is called ring avulsion - WARNING: do not google search this unless you are physically, emotionally and psychologically prepared - the images are very graphic and disturbing. The crazy thing is, it’s not like he was rock climbing or playing basketball, he just tripped on a rug in his kitchen, and on the way down, his ring got caught on the counter and it almost tore his finger off. It could happen to anybody at any time. Nobody wakes up in the morning thinking, today will be the day that my indestructible tungsten carbide ring will be the reason my finger gets ripped off my hand. But tragically, this happens way more than you probably realize - there are more than 150,000 ring avulsion accidents per year in the U.S. alone (source:OrthoBullets) - many of which lead to amputation. As you continue reading, you'll actually hear from someone who suffered a terrible ring avulsion accident when he least expected it - his story is moving.
p.s. Please let Jimmy know about this Kickstarter by tagging him or sending him a link! In his video explanation, when he was in the ICU for 10 days, he was trying to come up with a ring solution that could save people's fingers but was unsuccessful... we have his solution, it's Enso Rings!

Kickstarter Community Challenges and Stretch Goals That Unlock a NEW Ring
Our funding goals were set to meet our minimum needs in purchasing molding equipment, shipping supplies and engraving equipment. We've experimented with all different types of rings over the years: metals, woods, fabrics, and others. But none of them were the right solution. The silicone composite used in Enso Rings is the perfect blend of flexibility and durability. We've also tested 100s of rings with friends and family, and now it's time to share our rings with the world. In the spirit of sharing the love, we're going to be working hard to earn every backers' contribution. Together, we have 3 community challenges that we need your help with:
Enso Rings Benefits and Features
ANTI RING AVULSION TECHNOLOGY
Enso Rings are the safest rings on the market because of Anti Ring Avulsion Technology. If the ring gets caught on something and all of your weight is coming down, it will actually tear away instead of tearing your finger off! Enso Rings save your finger and prevent ring avulsion, degloving and amputation.
Just google "ring avulsion" (WARNING: this is not for the faint of heart) and you will immediately see the value in getting one of our rings. We have the safest ring on the market with Anti Ring Avulsion Technology.
We know you love your spouse or you wouldn't be reading this, so now is the time to do something about it. Whether they're working out at the gym, their job doesn't allow them to wear a ring, or any other scenario you can think of... we finally have the solution! Your spouse needs an Enso Ring! They're perfect for every occasion and scenario where the ring usually comes off. It's the safest, most functional wedding ring on the planet! And the best part is, it's so comfortable, you'll forget it's even on. Go for spouse of the year in 2015 and get one for your significant other today!
We LOVE being active. And like you, we were tired of adapting our lifestyles around our rings. Sure we could just take off our rings but that didn't feel like we were honoring the commitments we made. Chances are our spouses and yours feel the same way. Now instead of looking for a safe place to stash our rings until after the fun, we don't even hesitate to start up the mountain, hit the gym or do what we love, because the ring is always in a safe place... right on your finger! Right where it should be!
We didn't set out to create an affordable option to the wedding ring, this is just a nice benefit to the style we selected for all the benefits it renders. What's great about making Enso Rings affordable, is unlike a traditional ring, you can get several colors for traveling, for fashion, or for different events. Check out the rewards to save some money. And if you're an early bird, its even that much better!
"Fortunately for me I didn't have my finger torn off. However, I did break my finger and couldn't physically get my ring off for several years because of the constant swelling. I wish I not only discovered Enso Rings sooner, but probably more importantly just realize the risk of wearing rings that won't break or come off when I need it to most." -Skyler Wolf Jones
"I've never been able to work out with my ring because it jacks my hand up and pinches my finger. My wife hates it cause I take it off all the time. And usually I forget to put it back on. My wife got me an Enso Ring. Originally, I thought I'd only wear it to the gym, but after doing one pull up, I was hooked! I tried putting my other ring back on and I couldn't stand it anymore. It didn't matter how much it was, now I only wear my Enso one. And ps, my wife loves that I wear my ring all the time now too." -Jason Conley
Why Are We Doing This Kickstarter?
We started off by creating a few basic rings and investing our own time and money into the whole concept of Enso Rings. After years of prototypes and testing, we now have a strong vision of what our purpose is. But even though we have an amazing product and we're driven to help save fingers around world, we need help funding this dream. This Kickstarter campaign is us actively taking our next step to getting things done. We have all the right pieces in place for manufacturing these rings and building a business that's here to stay! We're committed to this. We hope you love the new rings we're creating and giving our backers through all of the rewards. And as a fun side note, we've supported many Kickstarter campaigns and love what the Kickstarter community has done for entrepreneurs like ourselves and thought this was the perfect community to help us launch this awesome new ring. Here's hoping... what do you say, are you going to help us save as many fingers as possible from ring avulsion and amputation?
What Have We Already Done to Get to Where We Are Now?
We have spent many sleepless nights to get Enso Rings to where it is today and this Kickstarter campaign is our spring board into the future. We have done loads of testing on different materials and molds utilizing multiple manufactures to get our samples in order. From there we have had hundreds of test customers wear our rings and provide feedback. After compiling all of our feedback, and on top of working our full time jobs, we are finally ready to bring to the market the safest wedding ring on the planet. And it's the only ring engineered with Anti Ring Avulsion Technology which will save your finger in the event of an accident. We have all the manufacturing lined up and just waiting for the green light. Shipping is all arranged and we're ready to get your rings sent out to you for the holidays. We are ready to go!
Our latest step in development was building out the first version of our website to support the growth we anticipate from the Kickstarter campaign. It's also a necessary step in building a sustainable business model for going forward. As a side note, if you like one of our ring designs below instead of the exclusive Kickstarter one, no problem, just let us know when we fulfill the rewards and we'll send you one of those instead!

Risks and challenges
NOT GETTING FUNDED
One of our biggest risks is not getting enough funding to tackle the dreams we have of making rings that will protect people's fingers around the world. We continue to hear stories of ring avulsion, degloving, wife's wanting their husbands to wear their rings to work and to the gym... We have the solution, we just need help in sharing it with people. Enso Rings is the solution. We are working extremely hard on producing amazing rings but our dreams are inherently at risk without enough funding. Fortunately, you can help with this one and we can do it together!
If we hit our funding goals the next risk is not moving quickly enough to get all the rewards shipped before the new year! We are confident we can, but there is always a partial risk depending on how crazy the holiday shipping gets.
The last risk is contingent on if we can get the maximum funding. If we do, we will be bringing most of the manufacturing in house which will bring new challenges. This won't affect the delivery of this Kickstarter and the rewards and is more of a long-term challenge.
For this Kickstarter, we're working with manufacturers who have years of experience delivering excellent products in large quantities. There will undoubtedly be some surprises along the way, but any obstacle will be addressed by combining our internal knowledge with external expertise, and an overall goal of making the best possible product for you. We also have all of the shipping supplies, materials and systems in place to deliver ALL of the rewards as quickly as possible!
SETTING UP SHOP
We aren't in this for a short ride to success, we're in this for the long haul! The Kickstarter funding is critical to help us get to the next stage of producing amazing rings and hopefully, it will allow us to launch the next phase of this business by getting an office and manufacturing in-house.
Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Help us save people's fingers by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of the page, or by helping us spread the word by sharing our Kickstarter.
