Aroundsquare's Normal Rings are simple, but striking little bands. In classic AO2 style, we have taken a minimalist approach to the design of these rings, but have found a way to make them truly distinctive at the same time. We've dubbed them the Normals, but in reality, they are quite far from any concept of average. This is a completely custom ring design, which will immediately stand out from almost any other band side-by-side. What differentiates the Normals lies in the details. Despite their clean design, they make their presence known with a substantial look and feel. They feature a subtle upsizing in both the thickness and the width of the bands, giving them a surprising heft and a sense that you're wearing a good solid piece of metal. At the same time, the careful attention to detail in the curvatures and rounding make them very comfortable for daily wear. They're good and wide, at around 7.5mm width, and reach a 3mm max thickness at the midpoint of the band. They've got a convex interior, aka "comfort fit", and the curves on the interior and exterior are subtle enough to leave a nice chunky side profile, rounded smooth to ensure no hot spots.
With that basic description, let's be clear, these rings hold their own just as wearable hardware. But.. if you're into putting them through their paces, they're up to that as well. Our initial interest in the design of a ring came from inspiration in the form of ring manipulation. After months of research, trial, and error, we finally locked in on the Normal design--a comfortable and substantial band with ergonomic curvatures that's comfortable to simply wear, and a joy to manipulate. Every aspect of the design has been thoughtfully considered from the standpoint of wearability, aesthetics, and the facilitation of all types of manipulation, from the classic gryphon roll, through to sleight of hand and more advanced tricks. Whether you want to mess around with manipulations or not, the Normals have got you covered.
