Always on hand

There are times when carrying a wallet or a purse is impractical, uncomfortable or just downright risky. Ask joggers and cyclists. Or surfers and sunbathers. Or clubbers and festival folk. Or even naturists – because you don't get many pockets in a birthday suit.

So we made Kerv, the world's first contactless payments ring. Now you can leave your wallets, purses, cash, coins and cards at home and still pay for stuff ... like a Jedi.

You can use Kerv to make payments anywhere in the world that displays the contactless payment symbol – no card, PIN, signature, bank account or smartphone required.

  • No pairing

  • No charging

    Unlike smartphones and smart watches, Kerv never needs charging, so you'll always be able to pay.

  • No worries

Kerv is engineered from aerospace-grade zirconia technical ceramic, and available in either black or white. But whichever colour you choose, Kerv's sleek outer shell is lightweight, hypoallergenic and almost as scratch-resistant as diamond.
