When crippling fear of missing the ever-important work e-mail or long-awaited text results in an unhealthy attachment to you smartphone (we’re talking to you, chronic update checkers), it’s time to reevaluate your priorities.
Ringly – the freshly launched line of phone syncing smart jewelry – allows women to do just that, via a customizable app/bauble pairing. Dreamt up by eBay alum, Christina Mercando, the easy to navigate app lets you decide which alerts are most important – texts from the baby sitter, calendar reminders, Gilt sales, Tinder matches (no judgment here) and more — then sends a corresponding vibration or light pattern to the ring, giving the wearer peace of mind and the freedom to leave the mobile in the bag. It’s also worth mentioning that the ring itself – a chunky, gold-plated number available in 4 semi-precious options – is downright adorable.
