This is so fabulous. I haven't worn it long, so I don't know how it will hold up, but the medium fits my smaller than average for my size wrists perfectly, although a small would likely work well too because it has some flexibility. It's delicate and sophisticated and actually looks and feels like molded leather. Such a unique piece.

This is absolutely a must have for you ring lovers!!! I bought the double layered metal one and it looks awesome on my finger. I previously had a single layered plastic one as a gift from a friend and enjoyed it very much so I bought this one. The metal finish is gorgeous, with a polished exterior and the interior has a 3D printed texture to it. All of the opening are very clean and I am surprised by this pattern, they are all random and this one is beautiful! Also shout out to the best customer service Margaret for helping me with sizing and shipping, the package arrived the day after, and the package display is cute ! (I don't wanna spoil this for you guys check it out for yourself!). I have recommended this item to many of my friends and posted it social media. People absolutely loved it. I can never let it go!

About

Nervous System is a generative design studio that works at the intersection of science, art, and technology.

We create using a novel process that employs computer simulation to generate designs and digital fabrication to realize products. Drawing inspiration from natural phenomena, we write computer programs mimicking processes and patterns found in nature and use those programs to create unique and affordable art, jewelry, and housewares.

Founded in 2007, Nervous System has pioneered the application of new technologies including 3D printing, webGL, and generative systems. Nervous System releases online design applications that enable customers to co-create products in an effort to make design more accessible. These tools allow for endless design variation and customization.

Jessica graduated from MIT in 2005 and holds degrees in architecture and biology. Afterwards, she studied architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Jesse also attended MIT, majoring in mathematics.

Nervous System's designs have been featured in a wide range of publications, including WIRED, the New York Times, the Guardian, Metropolis, and Forbes. Their work is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art and the Cooper–Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
