Full Answer

Interpreting a mood ring is not an exact science, as colors and interpretation systems both vary. Under one system, dark blue is counted as a variant of the blue moods, but under others it is considered a variant of indigo. Blue is generally considered a positive color, and dark blue is often considered a more intense version of whatever mood blue represents in that interpretation system. Although blue and dark blue are most often said to represent calm, scientifically speaking, the opposite is true. Mood rings change color based upon the warmth of blood flow to the fingers. When people are excited, more blood flows to the extremities, releasing more heat and making the mood ring change color toward the blue and violet end of the spectrum.
