With Summer already cozying its way into our hearts, that means one thing for us ladies – wearing more skin baring looks or plainly less clothing, out to clubs, festivals + or the many wonderful warehouse or rooftop locations throughout Brooklyn. And unless you’ve been living under a rock during the past few months, I’m sure you couldn’t help but ignore finding articles on how easily us chicks get harassed in the EDM scene by ‘too grabby’ guys. So what’s a girl to do but accessorize to terrorize of course!
My weapon of choice is a ring that can expose it’s point, by either bending my finger or turning the ring in another direction, usually pointing upwards. So here are ten great choices to not only make your hands look chic but lethal just the same, to jab any guy who can’t seem to understand to stop touching you!

Then we have the beauty of snakes. 9- NAGA Ring Amulet Snake Ring although designed for men, I comfortably wear mine on my pointer finger, since it has an adjustable ring size due to its open end.
