The Active Ring / Jeff McWhinney

Some married men don’t wear a wedding ring because they’re up to no good, but others skip the hardware because it can be dreadfully dangerous in everyday life. Certain jobs or hobbies can make the wedding ring a hazard, but putting it on and taking it back off is hard thanks to men’s large knuckles. Designer and machinist Jeff McWhinney set out to create a safer wedding band that could easily be taken off and put back on — and it looks really, really cool. The Active Ring features a hinged opening mechanism that allows it to open with a simple motion and quickly clamp back into place — via Dornob
