About Us

About Defender Ring

Defender Ring is a self defense company and social empowerment brand located in New York City.

We launched in 2019 and offer the largest collection of innovative and original self defense rings online.

Our founding goal was to create a powerful, practical self defense weapon for women in the form of an everyday jewelry ring.

Invention of Self Defense Rings

On August 2, 2016 in New York City, Karina Vetrano went out for an afternoon jog in a nearby park and was attacked and murdered in broad daylight.

Five days later on August 7, 2016 in Massachusetts,  Vanessa Marcottealso went out for an afternoon run and was also attacked and killed in broad daylight.

These similar attacks in such a short time span sent shockwaves throughout the country as these murders were not what you would expect; these women were exercising in public places in the middle of the day.

The lack of practical self defense weapons outraged Defender Ring, LLC founder Ryan Lee, and the idea for Defender Ring was spawned from this need.
