@Perilous Poozer's right. You can find cheap tungsten steel rings on amazon, you just need to know your size.

I have one, but don't wear it often. I feel like people who know me well would find it weird and start questioning me (since I virtually never wear jewellry of any sort), which would make me uncomfortable. I want to wear one to a pride event someday though. Sometimes I wear it when I go to sleep, though, just for myself.

I do wear one, mostly as a reminder to myself that I am 'ok' and not alone. Gotta love having a community who understands (even if it took me years to)!

 

I got a silicone ring so that it will hold up to handwashing and alcohol handrinse at work. I was a bit nervous to start wearing it, but coworkers were mostly curious if the silicone aspect instead of it being an unsusal colour for me.

 

And I saw a youtuber with a black ring on his middle finger on his right hand! Did not dig for cause, but it is nice to see regardless of his reasoning 🙂

After seeing this, I've gone and brought a nice black ring from Amazon. I'm kind of surprised there are no pictures of any ones rings.

Here's one. I thought I remembered seeing more pics of others' black rings, months ago, but I might be mistaken.

   I found my first & favorite black ring in a mall kiosk, it's made of tungsten carbide, highly recommend. I also bought two rings online that are a little more special, they're technically gambling rings, but I interpret them as my unique aroace rings. It's a bit risky because you never know with online stuff, but I think it's worth it. (I luckily have huge fingers so finding rings is less problematic because black rings are typically seen as more "masculine".) For sure, get your right hand middle finger ring size verified at a legitimate jewelry store before making purchases.

   I like wearing my black ring because it's a subtle reminder of who I am, and it's my little secret. It is also a conversation starter, if people care to ask, then they will, I've had at least three people ask me what my ring means in the past two months of wearing one. I'm still not entirely comfortable just blurting out what it means, so I tell them it's an ace ring & to look it up if they want to know, they all have. Every single person wanted to know, and they were respectful of me afterwards despite knowing that info, in fact, they asked me polite questions on the subject. 

   I have yet to be identified in this way or identify another in this way.

I am on the lookout for one, so I can wear it when I feel a bit sad.

Ow on the topic - my hematite one broke today and now I have a bandaid on instead of any kind of ring. Stick to tungsten! :mellow:

I have one, but I wear it on a chain on my neck instead of on my finger because of work habits (we couldn't have rings at work at one of my old jobs); a fellow ace at my last job still recognized it.

 

I now have a classmate who wears a black ring on his right middle, but he says he's not ace.
