Rings from the top are cheaper than rings on the bottom and the bottom rings have no illumination.
What should I pay for a ring light?
All rings on this page are designed to fit over the top or center bar. There are some that will match the top bar but the bottom ring should match the center bar at the same depth and thickness. You can either make all of your rings from the same material (in which case the same light will fit over the entire bar) or you can look at some of the rings in our stock photos. A basic idea of materials used is as follows:
Materials used 2-piece rings of 4mm width:
Material used 4mm x 4mm (also known as 2-pairs) 3-piece rings of 8mm diameter & 7mm thick:
In this photo you can see that the top ring with the 1 or 2 pieces cut to make 1 or 2 pieces, is 8-pieces so it will match the center bar in depth and thickness. The ring on the left has the same 3-piece ring but with the 2-piece made into 2 thin sections of 7mm thick. The ring on the right is made of 5-piece 1 x 2 rings, with the 5-piece made from the 2-piece. The 6-piece made in this photo is from a top bar, with a 6-piece made in the center of the 4-piece.
The next picture shows 2 different rings, from a 2-piece and a 4-piece. The 2-piece has 3 pieces cut to make 1 and 1 piece cut to make 4 pieces. It’s the same design as the 4-piece except that the 2-piece and 4-piece are 6-pieces.
A lot of different people have been using the same design to make rings and many can’t agree on the thickness of the ring. If you’re not sure, go to one of our other sections and buy a ring by each thickness and see it in action.
So what are ring lights for?
Ring lights are used for many different purposes. Some are used as lighting for the indoor light and some to light the outside of your home. Some might be just for decoration and some might be used for a good night’s candle. There are various configurations of rings to get just the right amount of illumination.
The two most common are, the ring with no illumination (the 1-5-3) and the
