Free to load, free to use
We don't charge you to load your K Ring via debit card or bank transfer – and we don't charge you when you use it to pay, either
Always on hand
K Ring is the world's first contactless payment ring, powered by Mastercard.
With K Ring, there's no need to handle cash or touch a PIN pad – and you can leave your cards and phone in your pocket.
With the new contactless payment limit of £45, it's now even easier to safely buy all your essentials at once.
Always looking good
Available in a range of sizes, K Ring is engineered from scratch resistant zirconia ceramic and comes in 14 colour combinations.
Which will you choose?
Unlike smartphones and smartwatches, K Ring never needs charging, so you'll always be able to pay
K Ring works all by itself, so you don't need to pair it with a smartphone to make a payment
Engineered from zirconia ceramic, K Ring’s outer shell is hypoallergenic and almost as scratch-resistant as diamond
K Ring won't be harmed by soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitiser, so please keep washing those hands!
K Ring is welcome anywhere that accepts Mastercard contactless payments, which is approx 40 million retail locations worldwide – just look out for the contactless payment symbol
You can’t make accidental payments with K Ring because it must be within 4cm of a contactless reader, with your hand in the correct position.
Powered by Mastercard, K Ring benefits from all of Mastercard’s security features – and for extra peace of mind, you can easily switch it off and on at any time.
