The original – straight from the designer

Closed drip rings always used to be a little too large in order that they could fit over the glass lips of wine bottles. This caused drops to run down through it, the rings constantly slipped around the neck of the bottle and even off the top when the wine was poured. This bothered Johann C. Vosteen who thought that it would be better if the ring were tighter. The two-part magnetic ring does not slip and, best of all, it catches all drops thanks to its tight fit. And it looks so much better too!

Until today, this two-part metal drip ring developed by Johann C. Vosteen can be found at WMF and Tchibo.
