Just curious if anyone here owns the purposefully "spinning" rings (pics attached)?

The biggest examples I know are from Piaget and Boucheron. I am someone who loves "fiddling" with stuff, so just curious if anyone owns these and if so, are you happy/unhappy with them?

I’ve had friends with much less expensive spinning rings. The biggest complaint is that dirt makes spinning difficult.

Ive never seen or heard of these spinning rings before and my first thought was how intriguing :appl:
My 2nd thought was gunk and muck and dirk :(2

I saw a spinning ring in Dubai, and loved it. But money was gone to buy my earrings. So waited till I came home to Aus to get a jeweler to make it for me. 18k WG with 7x0.1ct diamond on each band

It’s in rotation with my other sets of rings.

Problem is when I drop it accidentally, one of those rings does get bent and the spin doesn’t work. But I sorta drop it (from a short distance to the work table) a few times to get it bent back into shape! Lol. Sometimes, it doesn’t bend back. So I leave it and try again another day. Lol

I get the fidget spinner quality of these rings but dirt and gunk on the bearings, not nice. I like rolling rings for that middle ground Of something to play with but no mechanism to gunk up.

My husband had one once and yes once it starts getting dirty they stick. He isn’t OCD and cleans jewelry every day like I do. He has a different ring now but he did enjoy the 3 rows spinning and I saw him spin the bands frequently.

I have an amazon ultrasonic that I really like, so as long as cleaning would get the "gunk" out then that should be fine.

The ring pictured above was only $16 on etsy so not quite so heartbreaking that it's not long wearing. Mine was more expensive but it was early in the fad when there were fewer options.
