The intersection between tech and accessories has captured the attention of fashion media and tech junkies alike. Perhaps one of the most innovative companies exploring the symbiotic relationship between fashion and tech is New York based startup Ringly.
By now, you’ve probably heard of Ringly’s signature item, which is an ultra-aesthetic cocktail ring equipped with Bluetooth that vibrates with activity from your iPhone. These rings exceeded their sales goals within eight hours of their summer 2014 launch, and the company is currently working to fulfill the rest of their preorders.
While the company gains momentum, they’ve also recently received a whopping 5.1 million dollars in funding. You read that right!
So what will Ringly do with the funding? Expand, of course! While the company isn’t releasing specifics, Ringly says we can expect to see new product designs, designer collaborations, and much, much more.
Congrats to Ringly – we’re on the edge of our seats waiting to see what they’ll come up with next!
