How Do Mood Rings Work
Before we get into how mood rings work, let's take a look at what causes a chameleon to change color.In fact, the name “chameleon” is derived from the Greek words meaning “lion of the ground” and “changeable”.
The most common reason for a chameleon to change its color is to regulate its body temperature, which is referred to as thermoregulation. A chameleon’s environment can become too hot or too cold and the animal will use its color changing abilities to adjust its body temperature accordingly. Darker colors absorb more heat, so a chameleon will darken its skin in warm temperatures and lighten it in cooler temperatures.
Chameleons can change colour to help regulate their hormones. When a chameleon is stressed or feeling anxious, its body releases hormones that can cause its skin to darken. Similarly, when a chameleon is feeling relaxed or content, its body releases hormones that cause its skin to lighten.
Our mood rings have a similar reason to chameleons changing color.
Mood rings were first introduced in 1975 by two New York City inventors, Joshua Reynolds and Maris Ambats. Reynolds was a psychologist who had studied color theory and believed that different colors could affect people’s emotions.Ambats, an engineer, created the unique thermo-sensitive liquid crystals that react to changes in body temperature and translate them into colors.
The science behind mood rings is quite simple. The stones used in mood rings are filled with thermotropic liquid crystals, which are sensitive to changes in nearby temperature.
One of the main indicators of the color of the mood ring is temperature. Our normal body temperature is 98.6 F. Any emotional changes will cause your body temperature to rise or fall. They are placed in the ring or on the belt. Once a person's mood changes, it will cause a change in body temperature, and the thermophilic liquid crystal will respond to the temperature change, which will cause the color of the ring to change.When a person is happy or excited, the body temperature will rise with the emotion, and the color of the stone will change. When a person is in a low mood, the body temperature will drop with the depression, and the color of the stone will change. This reaction is caused by the heat generated by the body, which causes the molecules in the liquid crystals to rearrange themselves. The resulting color reflects the wearer’s current emotional state.
Mood rings are called mood rings because when people's mood changes, it will cause people's body temperature to change, which will change the color of the ring. The original reason for all change is because your emotions have changed.
This is the working principle of our ring/necklace. It is a kind of "magic" with scientific basis and sense of technology.Mood rings can be a fun accessory, but they should not be used as a substitute for professional help. If you are experiencing intense feelings of depression or anxiety, it is important to seek help from a qualified mental health professional.
