Mood Rings

A Mood Ring is a ring which contains a thermochromic element, such as liquid crystal. The ring changes color in response to the body temperature of its wearer. The color is said, by some proponents, to indicate the emotional state of the wearer.

The mood ring was invented in 1975 by two New York inventors, Josh Reynolds and Maris Ambats, who bonded liquid crystals with quartz stones set into rings. They initially retailed for $45 for a “silvery setting” and $250 for gold, and first sold at Bonwit Teller, rapidly becoming a fad in the 1970s.

  1. The mood ring was also an early direct response marketing product that I still remember vividly for their tv commercials; there was a swinging party going on and one guy says to another; “Where’d you get that ring? Sure is bad!” and the other says “This is my Party Ring”
    That’s all I remember but we’re talking 35 years ago and I still remember that much.
    Now that’s an ad campaign!

  3. Root Boy Slim and the Sex Change Band recorded a song titled “You Broke My Mood Ring”.

    You broke my mood ring,
    You broke my mood ring,
    You made my mood ring break…

  5. What’s funny is, those rings change color based on temperature, not mood. The joke’s on you, buyers! Oh wait, I bought some. Drat!
