Mood ring is a ring which contains a thermo chromic element which changes color with the wearer’s body temperature response. Emotional wearers’ will determine the color change. Each color represents the meaning of mood rings.
One of the most persistent cycle of fashion and aesthetic wonder of our time, mood rings have been happy, bedazzled, people are upset and confused since they became popular in the 1970s.
In all honesty, there is nothing particularly confusing in the science that drives this ring. Thermo tropic material is injected into the rock ring reacts to body temperature, allows a gem to change color based on the “mood”. So in the case of excitement or (ahem) arousal, blood is directed away from the skin, lowering surface temperatures and changing colors of the mood ring. What gave!
Mood ring color meaning
Now we discuss the basic history and function of the mood ring, it’s time to discuss what each representing a color shift.
Due to the fact that changes color based on temperature, it is important to realize that the mood ring is not a scientific benchmark, but it can take an array of appropriate and often unconscious physiological changes.
The relationship between skin temperature and emotional well documented. In a study published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, a group of psychology students were exposed to the music of various kinds, and the researchers found that the songs relaxed and happy associated with an increase in skin temperature. In contrast, stressed or sad music bring the temperature below the skin surface.
Here is a breakdown of what color visuals and emotions commonly associated with mood rings (note: many mood ring will come with its own instructional brochures and can adjust their color).
The ring atmosphere was created in 1975 by two New York inventors. Although two people (Maris Ambats and Joshua Reynolds) was identified as the creator of mood rings attached liquid crystal quartz stones set into rings, more sources indicate Reynolds. Reynolds said he found a mood ring to give people a visible means tracking their mood, an idea that in accordance with the growing trend of self-awareness and introspection from the 70’s.
A mood ring is a specialized liquid crystal thermometer, wearable on the finger. These rings are usually decorated with imitation gemstones (usually made of quartz or glass) are both clear capsule filled with thermo chromic liquid crystals, or have a thin sheet of liquid crystal sealed underneath. Changes in temperature cause the crystal to reflect different wavelengths of light that changes the color of the stone. Liquid crystal used in mood rings are usually set to display the “neutral” color at the average temperature of the human skin, which is about 98.6 ° F (37.0 ° C) .
The theory behind the idea that the ring indicates the wearer’s mood based on the claim that body heat fluctuates with the emotional state of the wearer. Human body temperature is known to vary by a small amount (less than 0.5 ° C) during the menstrual cycle and the circadian and when the body is fighting infection. Ambient air temperature variations appear to have a greater effect on the temperature of the ring rather than the wearer’s body temperature changes. [Citation needed] [Original research?] There is no direct correspondence between certain moods and certain colors are never proven.
Jewel in color-changing mood rings are made of liquid crystal contained in quartz. Liquid crystals are sensitive to temperature changes. So, as the temperature changes in the wearer’s body, it seems to change color gem. Rings come with a chart that shows the meaning of each color of the gem. Mood ring is to have fun, their accuracy is questionable due to changes in body temperature for a variety of reasons other than mood.
When mood rings are created, they quickly became an iconic symbol of the trend and the 70’s. The ring was the average age of two years, and the fad faded around the same time. However, like most fashion trends, mood ring back to popularity from time to time.
Popularity mood ring mood jewellery inspired others: bracelets, earrings, pendants, beads, charms and watches. Well beyond the field of jewelry for fun with other products, including mood lipsticks, pencils, pens, mugs and apparel. Philips Electronics created a dress mood “not only reflects body temperature is measured heart rate and other metabolic functions associated with emotional stress, arousal, and more…”
