Does anybody know if these things really worked?
The Mood Ring is a piece of jewellery which contains a thermochromic element (liquid crystal), the theory behind the idea is that the ring indicates the wearer’s mood.
It changes color in response to the body temperature of its wearer. The color is said, to indicate the emotional state of the wearer.
Invented in 1975 by two New York inventors the Mood Ring rapidly became a fad in the 70s.
How did this translate into the 90s I hear you ask?
Well a little movie called My Girl starring Anna Chlumsky and Macaulay Culkin that’s how.
Remember that scene where she loses her Mood Ring while out in the woods so Culkin goes back to retrieve it only to have be attacked by a swarm of wasps and dies [cue violins].
After that movie came out in 1991 every kid wanted one!
