Ultra High-End Connected Jewelry By Pinifarina And Christophe & Co.

Christophe-Co-Armills-bracelet

With names like Pinifarina and Christoph & Co., you know you’re looking at something expensive, and the Armills line of men’s jewelry is about as fancy as they come. These bracelets are nominally “high-tech” in the sense that they do incorporate an optional hardware module that allows the wearer to perform NFC payments, have automated venue access, one-touch valet access and other options. But that’s clearly not the main attraction. What is, is the 1,500 pave diamonds carefully hand-placed on the “highly complex ceramic shield” that serves to protect the delicate 18K gold surface of the piece, which itself is intertwined between pieces of carefully cut carbon fiber. A proprietary kinetic energy regeneration system powers the electronics, which should be able to go for long periods of time without a charge.

Like any high-end piece of jewelry, you’re paying mostly for the status than for any tangible benefit they bring. And the Armils bands don’t disappoint: “Christophe & Co. Armills bracelet will come in three models – Virtus, Orion and Apollo for $75,000, $93,000, and $149,000 respectively.”

For The Die Hard Fans: A Pokemon Engagement Ring

A2-325x325_Fotor_Collage

So I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a little out of touch on the whole Pokemon thing. Do people still play this stuff? Is it, like, a thing now? Because we’re thinking it would have to be for some jeweller somewhere to think it worth his while to develop a Pokemon Engagement ring. And to be so passionate about its description.

Somewhere in our bedrooms was a small pile of dead AA batteries from the sleepless nights with our faces glowing in the screen of capturing all of the existing 150 little evolving creatures we pit in a fight to the faint. Nowadays the batteries are built into all electronic devices and the 150 has been upped to a zillion billion. Nothing says “I Choose You” like our Trainer’s Band.

The engagement ring has a twisted shank with a row of created green gems showing our good health at the beginning of a battle, the other row of created topaz stones shows our experience. All variations of this ring has a Created Ruby and Cubic Zirconium cut in half to create the symmetrical design in the center. Our Genuine Gems options have Authentic Peridot and Authentic Aquamarine “AA” quality.

Prices start at $197 for the cubic zirconium versions and going up to $849 for real gems.

Realistic-Looking Fake Food Jewelry Looks Good Enough to Eat

Fake Food Jewelry

Look away if you’re on a diet and want to still be on one at the end of the day. Because while we’re talking fashion accessories, they might as well be food because of how close to the real thing they actually look. This line of jewelry was created by Hatanaka, a Japanese manufacturer that specializes in making uber-realistic plastic food replicas for restaurants.

Now they’re expanding their line of business to the fashion industry with their bacon belts, soba necklaces, spaghetti hairpieces, and pasta earrings.

C-3PO And R2-D2 Wedding Bands For Star Wars Geeks

Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 11.25.01 AM

These are a pair of nice-looking Star Wars themed wedding bands. One is made out to look like R2-D2 while the other C-3PO. Who wears which is entirely up to you of course, but if you’re enough of a geek, disagreement over this might just be enough to fuel endless arguments ultimately leading to your divorce… I mean, do you really want to give your wife the C-3PO ring, while keeping the obviously cooler R2-D2 for yourself?

They’re the work of jeweller Juan Hidalgo, and we don’t know how much they cost.

Qalo Ring: An Alternative to Typical Wedding Bands

Qalo Ring

 

Compared to men, women are more particular when it comes to jewelry. How many times have you heard one of your guy friends say that they’ve lost, misplaced, or banged up their rings so badly because he forgot to take it off while mountain climbing? The solution isn’t to buy a spare ring or wear it around your neck; no, it comes in the form of the Qalo Ring.

It’s a simple band that dudes can wear on their ring fingers without having to worry about possible wear and tear. Made from thick silicone, the rings are comfortable yet durable enough for active lifestyles. The best part? It’s only $20, so you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank if you ever need to buy a replacement.

For the Person Who Transformed You: Transformers Bumblebee Ring

Transformers Bumblebee Ring

Bumblebee is one of the most beloved Autobots from the Transformers franchise. He was the one of the first bots that we were introduced to in the first movie. It’s also worth mentioning that he’s been in every one of the movies, and that’s saying something, seeing as how Michael Bay doesn’t think twice about killing off some of the bots to get a point across.

That said, it makes perfect sense to feature Bumblebee on a Transformers-inspired ring–not only for his marketability, but for his bright and aesthetically-pleasing design. That and the fact that he turns into a snazzy Camaro seals the deal for me. The ring features Bumblebee’s playful mug right smack in the middle of an adorable sterling silver and gold-plated band.

It’s available from CustomMade for $299.

For Lethal Couplings: Gas Mask Diamond Ring

Gas Mask Diamond RingRings are a symbol of love and commitment. They’re indicators of your fashion sense, sentiments, and even your political views. Where the Gas Mask diamond ring falls under, I’m not sure. Probably all of the above, although I’m unsure on the love and commitment part for obvious reasons.

The ring is adorned with gorgeous black and white diamonds, which are set on 18-carat gold with a black finish. Wear it in protest, wear it to showcase your sense of style (and deep pockets), or simply wear it because it’s fun.

The price? $7,000.

Looks Good Enough to Eat: Burger Bangle

Burger Bangle

The Burger Bangle is a set of bangles that come together to form something wonderful and mouthwatering: a big fat juicy burger with lettuce, onions, cheese, and tomatoes. Take it apart and you can wear each component bangle separately for a different look. It might not be a good idea to wear this while you’re on a diet though, for obvious reasons.

Want to skip the color and go for something more discrete? The all-white or all-black burger bangles might be more fitting for your taste.Continue Reading
