Wearing Comfortable Splints Shouldn't Mean Losing Your Identity. I Want You to Get Compliments. Change the Focus to Wow Your Rings Look Amazing!!!

Hi I'm the founder of Ring Splints By Zomile. I'm passionate about producing Ring Splints that make people feel good about themselves. You ask how can a tiny splint do that? Reducing any amount of chronic pain first off makes you feel a whole lot better, but also the compliments you constantly get change your outlook. No longer do I get asked whether I've been in an accident, or **** what have you done? That's a common reaction that a lot of chronic condition sufferers deal with when having to wear splints and braces on a daily basis. Now imagine being stopped not to be insulted but to be complemented on your beautiful set of jewellery, where did you get it from? ...only to smile and answer, oh they're medical splints thanks. Customer reviews time and time again comment on this fact. This is what drives me to keep finding different alternative styles to keep my customers happy and feeling individual and fashionable. Being able to customise how you want your splints. From Gold plating Zebra stripes if that's what takes your fancy! But also giving me the challenge to find solutions for customers who don't fit the mold and need a completely different splinting solution. Those customers keep me up at night and get me up in the mornings. I often felt on my journey with Ehlers Danlos and RA that I was slowly losing my identity under a body armour of unfashionable NHS splints and braces. Non of which I'd have ever chosen for myself. So in 2012 laden with braces I set about to change things. Having a wide knowledge of Design, Fashion and Jewellery making I set out to produce the first U.K silver Ring Splints. In 2012 I registered my first splints with the Medicines and healthcare products agency and 8 years on I'm really proud to say that my customers often review the excellent customer service they receive.

So why buy my brand? Because I am the same as you. I know what's it's like to be in pain and need support. Im not a faceless company producing volumes of jewellery acting as splints but a small business focused on making registeted medical splints for conditions I understand. I feel passionate about providing customers with a brand they can trust , a brand that provides attractive medical splints where comfort and support are The main focus.
Over the years I have gained a large customer base in UK consisting of arthritis and EDS /Hypermobility sufferers, providing some with splints through access to work, charities or the NHS. But I still fear people are falling through the net. It upsets me to see fingers that are deformed and should have been helped a long time before. Or sufferers who have given up their jobs or hobbies due to the pain. Our dexterity is so important. It's not to be underestimated.
So I relish creating custom splints for the difficult fingers that consultants have referred to me to try and help prior to listing them for surgery. I love to work on new solutions.

I'm currently working on new bracing options for wrists.......watch this space!!
Please feel free to message me with any queries on measuring or alternative order requirements. I have not listed all the options I provide. Gold and Gold Plating is also available in my Splints on request. There may be something you'd like that I haven't thought of! If I can I will.

    Business Owner

    Hi I am the founder of Ring Splints By Zomile. I started the business 8 years ago when I designed my first set of splints for myself. As a sufferer of EDS & Rheumatoid Arthritis I was frustrated with the lack of attractive splints on the market.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

How do you measure?
Use a thin strip of paper AROUND the straight effected joint. Mark the join and then measure against a ruler. I need a Millimetre measurement for the circumference of the joint. Please select the CORRECT size.

Care instructions

How do I care for my splint?
Ring splints can be worn normally. Gem stone rings are a bit more delicate. You can wear your ring at night time to keep your fingers in alignment. Occasionally take your rings off and apply moisturiser to the skin underneath. You can buff your silver rings with a simple 4 sided nail block to bring back the high shine. Wash with soap and water. The silver is 935 low tarnish silver. Avoid household bleaches as they may tarnish. Toothpaste is great for removing any tarnish from bleach in products.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Rings come in a Solid Ring box

Are your splints medical splints?

Yes they are registered by law since 2012 with the MHRA the U.k Government Medicines and Healthcate products Agency. All medical splints have to comply with law. Always make sure you are buying splints and braces that are medical devices and not just fashion items. Medical devices go through rigorous testing to comply with law and most importantly for you to ensure the product you are buying is fit for purpose for your medical needs. Always seek advice from a medical practitioner prior to buying braces and splints. My splints are available on the NHS for patients who meet the criteria.

Can you add a Gem stone settings to any ring?

Yes any of the rings you see can have gem stones set onto them. If you have a mallet finger or trigger finger you would wear your band upwards. In that case the gem would be set on the band. Multiples can be set together.

Do you sell Gold rings?

Yes I make Gold 9ct Rose & Yellow ring splints. For a more cost effective option I also make Vermeil 22ct Rose and Yellow Gold Plated ring splints and thumb splints. Texture or gems can be added to any design at an additional cost.

How tight does the paper have to be when I'm measuring?

The paper should just fit snugly around the effected straightened joint. You can use string if you prefer. Measure at different times of the day just in case your fingers swell periodically. Take the smaller measurement for your ring size. This way you won't suddenly find rings slipping off

Do rings help pain and swelling

A resounding Yes they do! It's the reason I started making splints. I could no longer use my hands and needed to find a good solution that didnt add another level of NHS couture to my body. The silver splints stopped the awful pain and swelling. Many customers reviews state how they have eased the pain and swelling.

Do you accept exchanges and refunds?

Yes if you have bought a plain ring or textured ring ( excludes gem rings and SRL DRL DRDL thumb and finger splints) and when you get it you feel it won't be suitable, return it and I will refund you. I will resize and exchange all other splints (small fee for resizing after 14 days and after first exchange)

Where are you based?

I am based in the U.K as a result you won't have to pay duty on splints bought from abroad.

Why is delivery charged? Other Etsy stores have Free Delivery?

This is a marketing tool. Stores add delivery and packaging charges onto each of their products, meaning if you buy more than one product you will pay a lot more than a standard Royal mail large letter or small parcel charge. I have therefore added the delivery cost plus small amount for packaging. This helps me to keep splint prices down and you just pay delivery dependent on your purchase. As a U.K Brand there are no hidden import duties to pay. Smaller rings up to 6 rings are sent 1st class signed large letter. Larger up to 6 rings are sent 1st signed small parcel post. Any rings over 7 or large thumb splints/braces go special delivery for insurance purposes.
International tracked and signed - Ireland and thumb splints across EU
