High-Tech Fashion: Earbud Earrings

Earbug Earrings

 

When tech and fashion collide, this is what you get: earbud earrings. They’re basically earphones with a dangling bird decor right behind the buds, so they double as earrings when you put them on. This is one of those things that people will absolutely love or hate when they see it. So which side are you on?

Personally, I think it’s a fun way of jazzing up earbuds. Colored and bejewelled earbuds are already available in the market, so this isn’t the only way to do it, but it’s certainly unusual. That said, I can see how many people will dislike this simply because of how it looks and the fact that it can add some additional (and unwanted) weight on each of the buds.

They’re available online from Maxiga for $27.

Mini Diorama Rings: Wearable Art For Your Digits

Diorama Rings

Jewelry is essentially wearable art. But something that’s more “art” than “jewelry” are these mini diorama rings by designer Clive Roddy. Each piece is actually made of three rings, with each layer sporting a piece of the final design. The rings are laser-cut from high-quality birch plywood and can be worn together (for the full effect) or alone (if you’re feeling conservative).

They’re available in a variety of designs: House Rings (three houses that are different sizes), Tree Rings, Mountain Rings, and Wave Rings. Personally, the last one is my favorite. Hit the break for images of the other designs.

Nintendo Controller Rings FTW

Nintendo Controller Promise Ring

 

If you “intendo” to get serious-o with your significant other, then you might want to present her with this Nintendo Controller promise ring. Fancy gems? Check. Unique design? Check. Gamer-approved? Check, check, and check!

The ring was designed by Paul Michael Designs, who have cleverly dubbed their design as the “Intendo.” With gemstone buttons, a gold D-Pad, and silver “wire” that goes round and round your lovely lady’s finger, I doubt she’d turn you down. Just make sure you follow through and go for the ultimate level-up in your relationship: marriage.

Something Old, Something Otherworldly: Meteorite and Dinosaur Leg Bone Wedding Ring

Dinosaur Bone Wedding Ring

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. This is one of the wedding traditions most brides go through because first of all, there’s no harm in having all of those elements around at the wedding. Second, why tempt bad luck when it’s easy enough, anyway? One thing that happens to be old, new, and borrowed (but not blue) is this meteorite and dinosaur leg bone wedding ring.

As the name implies, it was created using bits of meteorite and dinosaur leg bone set in gold and titanium. The unique ring was designed and created by Distinctly Johan, giving a strange albeit really cool twist to the traditional wedding band.

They have a variety of other unusual and truly unique rings on sale. This particular one with the meteorite and dinosaur bone costs $1,085.

LEGO Brick Ring Is Quirky, Not Altogether Useful

brick-lego-ring

It’s not that rings should be useful or anything; they’re adornments after all. But since the 2011-old LEGO Brick Ring does come with two LEGO-sized protrusions you’re going to be tempted to attach LEGO pieces to it. And that’s when you start “using” the ring, only there isn’t much you can actually do with it other than to perch bricks and Minifigs on it, to your heart’s content. That’s enough to sell us on it though, especially given the reasonable $41 price tag for a piece described as “bronze-infused stainless steel with visible print lines and a rough feel.” To be honest, it looks really nice and the pictures don’t do it justice, so hit the jump for a video to get a better idea what it looks like.

Boba Fett Rings

boba-fett-rings-2

These Boba Fett themed rings are about as awesome as Star Wars inspired jewelry gets, at least in our book. Whether you’re a fan yourself or you know someone that would go nuts being gifted one of these, they make a great purchase. Granted it’s not cheap with prices starting at $280 for the silver versions, but this is a very unique looking piece of finger adornment. And of course you can get them in gold of various degrees of purity, for increasingly eye watering sums of money.

Pokeball Engagement Ring: Gotta Catch the ‘One’

Pokemon Engagement Ring

I’m sure there are a number of fitting proposals that would go along great with this Pokeball engagement ring by jeweler Arts & Gems. Too bad it’s just a conceptual design, because I’m sure there are a lot of guys out there who would want to catch the “one” with a creative and geeky ring like this.

The engagement ring has a twisted shank with created green gems showing our good health at the beginning of a battle. There is also a wedding band to complete the set with created topaz stones showing our experience. Engagement ring has a Created Ruby and Cubic Zirconium cut in half to create a symmetrical design in the center.

I especially like the twisted shank part, because it injects a fun vibe to the ring that seems in keeping with what it was inspired after in the first place.Continue Reading

Custom Handwriting Necklaces: Written Mementos You Can Wear

Custom Handwriting Necklace

A phrase from a love letter. A line from a poem. A few words from a note. Sometimes, they just stick with you, even when the person who wrote them is long gone. You can preserve the sheets, but you can now immortalize bits and pieces of those handwritten mementos by turning them into something wearable. It’s all possible thanks to jewelry artist Brittany Leigh.

The idea came to her when her grandmother passed away. She wanted to make something for her mom that kept the former “close despite her absence,” explaining: “I wanted it to be happy, and beautiful, and capture the essence of my grandmother. I found her handwriting translated all of these things in a wonderful way.”
