Hello everyone my name is Nate and I just recently joined the AVEN community in late November. I have never met so many kind, intellectual, and respectful people in an online community before and would like to thank you for making this place safe. 

 

I feel like people here understand me better and I am tempted to buy a black ring so I can remember that I am not alone and have AVEN. So, I have a question for all of you, do you wear a black ring?

About 2 months ago I came across a ring set. Two black rings and a silver ring. Just bands. Very simple. I got them because I haven't worn rings for a while and wanted to get back into the habit so I could pull out my larger chunky rings again. I didn't even think about the asexual use of the rings at that point. 

 

I now wear a black and a silver on my left ring finger and one black on my left index. So technically the arrangement makes it confusing, like hiding a tree in the forest. Probably doesn't help that I wear a cheap spectrum gold and diamond engagement ring on the middle finger on my right hand, which I think says more about being aromantic even if it is not an identifier.....especially when I give people the finger. If someone asked about it though I would explain I am asexual spectrum. I have purposefully left the black ring on my ring finger in case anyone recognises and wants to ask. Maybe it will make a shy closeted asexual happy seeing it knowing there are some of us in this city (apparently there is at least 5 a-spectrum peeps here, at least 3 of us wear rings. The community is so small we sort of need all the possible solidarity we can get)

I know that would make my day. :D

So I used to wear one everyday but then I broke it a couple weeks. So now I need to find a new one. I really like that it’s a reminder that I’m not alone and I can’t wait until the day I finally find one that I like. I don’t know any aces in real life and I like to think that we could spot each other because of our rings. This might be a bit delusional, but I like to think so.

I don't currently have an ace ring, but I am seriously considering getting one. I also have an ace pride necklace that I love.

Welcome! I wanted an ace ring, but I'm low on money, so I bought O-rings from Halfords (other chains are available) so I just wear those on my right middle finger :) If you want an ace ring you don't have to go all out with money and buy something fancy, it's the meaning behind the ring that's important.

Welcome! :) I'm glad you're enjoying this community. Unfortunately, I don't have an ace ring. I'm not really much a jewelry person. It might be cool to have one, though.

I voted "other" which stands for "I've only just found out about the whole black ring thing". Might get one though (or halfords equivalent, haha!)

They have plenty of inexpensive black rings on amazon. I am planning on spending some money on one that is very good quality and one that I will be happy looking at everyday.

Does the ace ring have to be solid black? I found a black ring that I like, it has a sterling silver band and a large black gemstone on the face of it. I am not really fond of an all black ring with no design, I think for me it needs to have a bit more style for me to want to wear it everyday. However, I see a lot of people on AVEN post pictures with simple all black bands. Although I intend on wearing this ring mostly for myself, I do also want other asexuals to be able to identify me if they were to see it.
