Defender Ring, LLC is a self defense jewelry and social empowerment brand located in New York City that sells original, innovative self defense rings. 

Defender Ring launched for business in 2019, however the idea for the self defense jewelry company was sparked a few years before that.

On August 2, 2016 in New York City, Karina Vetrano went out for an afternoon jog in a nearby park and was viciously attacked and murdered in broad daylight.

Five days later on August 7, 2016 in Massachusetts, Vanessa Marcotte also went out for an afternoon run and was viciously attacked and killed in broad daylight.

These similar attacks in such a short time span sent shockwaves throughout the country as these murders were not what you would expect; these women were exercising in public places in the middle of the day. If these women had been in dangerous areas, late at night, and engaging in illegal activities, their murders would still be tragic, but more reasonable.

However, these women were simply doing what many healthy people do which is go for a run in their neighborhood. And they were doing for rungs in safe areas in broad daylight.

Following these murders, it was apparent that anyone could be a victim of crime anywhere and at anytime. How could you prepare for attacks and protect yourself if you didn’t know when or where an attack would occur?

The lack of practical self defense weapons outraged Defender Ring, LLC founder Ryan Lee, and the idea for Defender Ring was spawned out of this need.

He understood that a self defense weapon is only effective if you have it when an attack occurs. A pocket knife doesn’t help if it’s sitting in your drawer at home or at the bottom of your bag.

So he concluded that the most practical self defense weapons would be ones that were created from everyday accessories. And what better everyday accessory than a jewelry ring that is already convenient, and accessible on your fist from just wearing it.

Thus Defender Ring and the idea to create practical self defense weapons out of stylish jewelry was born.

Today Defender Ring, LLC offers the largest collection of innovative and original self defense rings online comprising open point stacker rings, concealed minimalist rings, and concealed maximalist rings.

Open Point Rings are equipped with openly displayed sharp points which are soft to the touch and won’t cause damage or pain from incidental contact, but fierce on a fist and able to add a powerful whomp to a punch. They are forged in slim, durable, lightweight frames made out of 316L stainless steel and come in white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, and black colors.

Minimalist Rings are the original self defense ring created by Defender Ring, known for its hidden blade and thread mechanism allowing for the concealment and quick arming of the weapon. They feature a 5 mm concealed blade weapon with sharp grinded edges and a pointed tip.

Maximalist Rings are the most powerful self defense rings created by Defender Ring featuring large hidden knife weapons, and capable of incapacitating an attacker in self defense.They feature a 10 mm concealed weapon with a serrated or straight blade.

Defender Ring, LLC belongs to two industries: weapons and jewelry, which are two huge global markets. However the combo niche market of weapon jewelry is still small and emerging.

A major challenge the business faces is education of the product to consumers and the public. The idea of an everyday jewelry ring also being used for self defense seems foreign to many. Most everyday citizens are acutely aware of their personal safety and well-being, but the idea of a ring being used for safety doesn’t cross their minds.

Another challenge the business faces is innovating jewelry rings that are both stylish and aesthetic as jewelry, but also functional and effective as self defense weapons. There is a natural opposition to a ring being both beautiful and powerful, as power tends to arise from a “larger” weapon, while beautiful tends to arise from “minimalist” and “dainty”.

There are notable opportunities Defender Ring, LLC has at hand though. The first notable opportunity is that there is a strong need for practical self defense weapons as violence, crime, and self-preservation will always be a basic human need. In this day and age, crime continues to rise year after year. Incidents like mass shootings and hate crimes continue to increase as the cost of living and high inflation push people further into poverty and mental stress.

The second notable opportunity is that the self defense jewelry market is unsaturated and Defender Ring, LLC currently offers the largest selection of original self defense rings.

Defender Ring was born out of a true passionate need to help protect others. The team at Defender Ring is a passionate group of individuals who all want to innovate and fulfill our social objective to making the world a safer place for everyone.
