Five Golden Rings

I've got two hands
With five fingers attached to the end of each.
Five golden rings might be apportioned
In six different ways:
5-0, 4-1, 3-2, 2-3, 1-4, 0-5.
In all but the middle two
Rings would be placed on contiguous fingers.
On contiguous fingers, I say!
I don't like that.  
The rings would rub against each other,
They'd get clunky
And clanky
And pinchy.
And the gold would get
Scraped and dented.

Much better, I think,
To receive one,
Singular,
Solitary,
Tungsten Carbide Ring.
Zero fights with other rings.
Less pinching of flesh.
No noise to speak of.

I want a ring that means something 

By itself.

Done and done!

...I, however, like five golden rings. As long as they're sparkly.
