Why are there items with absolutely no attributes?

I have found 5 or 6 items now, all jewelry, that have no attributes. Just a socket and that is it. Is this a known bug, or is it just the luck of the draw? I would think an item is completely worthless without any attributes at all.

    A Socket is an attribute.

    The presence of one or more sockets is considered an affix, just like +Dex or +Magic Find.

    Since some blue items only have one Affix, a single socket is a valid variant of this.

    The is a socketed item (combined with the biggest stones they can be quit powerful).
