The Tree of Life is just one of many laminated hardwood ring styles by Dale Randles. Comes in eight gorgeous woods from Sicilian Olive to African Blackwood. US$175.

I love square rings, and this sterling silver cutie by PIO is no exception. Comes in a variety of sizes; US$80 each. While you're at the site, be sure to admire the pod-shaped earrings, necklaces and bracelets, too!

Dare to wear this "Speedloader" ring and nobody will dare mess with you! This huge piece comes with both crystal and hematite bullets, both for $295 at Victoria Tillotson. While she's got lots more giant rings where that came from, I tend to favour the $225 rock star ring.

For those with metal allergies who still want a traditional gold wedding ring: Ted Noten's 18k rings encased in clear perspex (lucite). Roughly US$3,300 (I'm not certain about the availability, though). Then there's the artful felted wool ring by Kay Nolke and the quaint porcelain rings (left) by Pauline Wiertz. All at deuxpoissons.com.

Ooh, a white camellia ring by Chanel — in resin, of course! $249 and it's yours. If you've read my "about plastics" page, you know that Coco Chanel was instrumental in bringing plastics (bakelite) into haute couture. Thanks, dahling!

Next time you need a break from your hectic job, skip Starbucks and find yourself an authentic Parisian café where you can sit, sip, and watch the poodles saunter by. Or, if you live in the real world, slip on this ring and just pretend! You'll be so busy admiring the Eiffel Tower that it won't matter how burnt your latté tastes. When it's time for lunch, this elephant ring and your favourite Pad Thai will whisk you away to the busy streets of Bangkok and help you forget all about that deadline... Both rings available at somethingsilver.com.
