Sex: both
Type of clothing: accessory
When it was popular: about '83 - '86
Description: These are black rubber rings used in machinery. They were worn in bunches up to about 50 or so on each arm, and in combination with very thin metal bangles (also in ridiculous amounts). They were mostly worn as bracelets, but also as rings and anklets. Eventually they ended up on dangly-type earrings). Madonna really helped make them mainstream popular and they eventually turned up in rainbow colors as well. Two of them crossed over each other and pulled to make one bracelet was taken as a sign of a "special friendship" if given to someone.

Yes. I have five of them (the bracelets). I have never heard of an O-ring belt, though.

I have 5 beautiful o-ring necklaces that have little stainless steel CZ cubes on them. I get so many compliments on them when I wear them.
