The Robert Lee Morris Small Silver Knuckle Ring was first designed in 1976, and became a huge hit right off the bat! Neiman Marcus wanted it for their Christmas issue in 1977. It is the smaller of all the rings and a huge favorite with young women everywhere.
The entire knuckle ring family of 5 basic sizes and shapes are one of the most iconic designs that Morris ever made. These unusual and striking rings literally helped secure an iconic look, and as mythical image for Morris at the very beginning of his career. These have been copied all over the world by rip off artists, and have been selling in street markets since the mid 1970’s, but always an inferior product. These rings are sterling silver, made in New York City, and are flexible enough to open up in the back to allow for variable sizing, depending on one’s finger shape and desire to wear it either on the knuckle or below it if possible. Janet Jackson memorialized these rings when she launched her album Velvet Rope where she was interviewed wearing ten rings, one on each finger. Each ring is signed by Morris and marked .925 which is the mark for sterling silver.
