This Celestial Fireworks Bracelet Is Perfect For The Geek In Your Life

led-star-bracelet

With the amount of beauty right here on Earth, it’s sometimes easy to forget just how amazing outer space can be. Fortunately for us, the good folks at NASA have the Hubble Telescope pointed at the stars, capturing amazing images like the one used on this Celestial Fireworks Bracelet.

This Celestial Fireworks Bracelet celebrates a spectacular image captured by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope of Westerlund 2, a cluster in the constellation Carina. (It’s 20,000 light years away, so this image really is that old.) On its own, it’s a gorgeous image, but we’ve highlighted the young star cluster’s sparkle by adding 15 tiny twinkling white LED lights to represent more foreground stars. They’re powered by a rechargeable battery; the hinged bangle ships with a proprietary USB charging cable to keep it entwinkling. But there’s an on/off button, too, in case you prefer it dark. Either way, it’s a fabulous tribute to the magnificence that is space and mankind’s exploration of it.

A single charge can have the bracelet twinkling for up to 8 hours at a time. It weighs 3.2 oz. and costs all of $60.

Wear The Planets On Your Fingers

planetary-rings-1

There seems to be a tiny market for planet-themed items. We’ve written about Planetary Christmas tree ornaments and Planetary Glasses, and they’ve all been well received. Now we come across these Solar System Rings by Etsy seller JewelryThreeSnails. They feature each of our solar system’s planets, though we’re not sure about Pluto’s status anymore. It’s not really a planet, right? In any case, they’re not expensive, made from silver with an enamel, and will set you back $14 a piece or $129 for the set of 9.

Earrings Made From Fired Bullet Casings

bullet-earrings

Look, there are a lot of bullets being fired at any given time in America. All these casings have to go somewhere, so we think it’s a great idea that Enreverie has repurposed at least some of them. They’re earrings called Little Black Gun, and feature casings from all kinds of bullets, from Winchester to Smith & Wesson, to which Swarovski crystals have been affixed. The crystals come in different colors, and a pair will set you back only $20. We imagine that aside from adorning your ears, you’re also making some kind of statement when you wear them, but what exactly that is, we’re not sure.

Famous Cities Skyline Rings

anillo-de-ciudades-famosas

Jewelry can say a lot about you. If you’re carrying double digit carats and more gold than you can find on the Sistine Chapel, there’s a chance you’re trying to tell the world you have money, and would like them to know it. But if you’re donning these Cityscape Rings from Etsy seller Shekhtwoman, you’re saying you have an appreciation for art, metropolitan architectural artistry, and have generally have good taste. At least we think so. The rings represent famous skylines from cities like Paris, New York, San Francisco, and Boston, as well as some more obscure ones like Charleston or Edinburg (not saying Edinburg isn’t famous, but… well, it’s not quite as recognizable now is it…)

The rings start out at $69 for the Bronze and Brass versions, but sadly many of these cheaper ones seem to be sold out. If you’ve got $1,359 burning a hole in your pocket, the Platinum versions are still generally available.

So, you know, the movie’s coming out soon. People are going crazy, pumping out merch left and right, so it stands to reason you’re going to come across some outrageous stuff. Like this BB-8 Droid above. It’s a collaboration between Disney Consumer Products and Kay Jewellers, it stands just 4.25? high and weighs just over 1.5 lbs. Made from 18-carat yellow gold, this iconic piece of merchandise is decked out in around 860 diamonds amounting to 18 carats. It took 600 hours to make, and “will be displayed at the Force 4 Fashion exhibit in New York and auctioned off for charity later this month.” It’s valued at $135,000, but there’s no telling how much frenzied collectors will dish out for it once it hit the auction block.

I Do: Doctor Who TARDIS Engagement Ring

Doctor Who TARDIS Engagement Ring

 

Would you say yes to this? This Doctor Who-inspired TARDIS engagement ring will make most girls happy (provided the right man is asking), but it’ll make Whovians over the moon with joy because it’s, well, a TARDIS ring. The double band is generously studded with diamonds, while the miniature TARDIS itself is covered in blue sapphires and even more diamonds.

The design, which was originally posted on Etsy, has since been sold, but fret not. You should be able to ask your jeweller to come up with an inspired design, if you want one.

Galaxy Space Bracelet Gives You The Universe On Your Wrist

galaxy-bracelet-1

Any item that gets anyone thinking about the vast, unbounded beauty of the universe, rather than what kind of lipstick Kim Kardashian was wearing yesterday is fine by us. The set pictured above, a handmade item from Etsy seller jerseymaids is actually one of the nicer looking such items we’ve come across. Each bracelet can be made in either a gold or silver type finish, and you can choose from any of 36 designs. This includes not only all of the solar system’s planets, but also notable space characters such as the Crab Nebula, the Pillars of Creation, or the Horse Nebula. “Each individual bangle bracelet features 3 images of your choice that measure 6mm each, and the bangle bracelet itself measures approximately 8 3/4″ in circumference and is meant to flow loosely around your wrist. ” You can buy them individually for $30 a piece, or get the set of 6 (pictured above) for $145. Keep in mind that this is a made-to-order item and as such can take up to 3 weeks to ship. The sellers are on vacation now as well, so nothing is getting in the mail until they return at the start of June.
