If You Like It, Then You Better Put a Smarty Ring On It

Smarty Ring

If smart watches are too bulky for your taste, then how about a smart ring? That’s what the folks behind the aptly-named Smarty Ring are working with. Currently in development, the ring connects via Bluetooth to your iOS or Android smartphone. Alerts for new messages, calls, new email messages, and the like will be flashed on the ring’s display. For social media addicts, updates from Facebook, Twitter, Hangout, and Skype can also be displayed.

Aside from connectivity, it allows users to track the location of their device (if it goes missing) and control it remotely. The Smarty Ring raised about $300,000 on Indiegogo last December, with delivery slated for April 2014. If you missed out on the campaign, then you can still pre-order the ring for $175.

If you and your significant other live, breathe, and eat My Little Pony (figuratively, of course), then these wedding rings are just the rings for you. Real-life pony and brony Samantha J. Stroh and her fiance had these rings designed and made by Jason, who’s no stranger when it comes to My Little Pony stuff as he makes jewelry and accessories inspired by the franchise and sells them on his Etsy store, SilverSlingersGoods.

The ring for Samantha features the mark of Princess Cadence, while the ring for her fiance has the mark of the Shining Armor on it.

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.

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

Ready for a Lifetime of Adventures? ‘Adventure Time’ Jake’s Face Engagement Ring

Adventure Time Engagement Ring

This is an engagement ring featuring Jake the dog from Adventure Time and it’s just awesome in every sense of the word.

His eyes have that mischievous glint and they’re shining like diamonds because two big rocks have been set in Jake’s eye sockets.

Classy Rings with Mini Glasses: Drink in Moderation

Classy Rings with mini glasses3

There’s only so much booze that you can pour into these miniature glasses that are attached to rings. So drinking moderately isn’t exactly the message designer Merve Kahraman was pushing for when she came up with these rings, but that’s what people wearing them will have to do anyway.

These rings with attached glasses are part of the Merve’s Seduction Series, and they will be used exclusively at private events and parties to celebrate the exquisite aromatic profiles of Remy Martin.

The Bloody Cleaver Ring is Bloody Awesome

Bloody Cleaver Ring

This is the one ring that’ll shock most people when they see it. (Aside from a wedding ring, that is, but this kind of ring is more of a good surprise than a scary, gory one…)

The Cleaver Ring isn’t delivered all bloodied up, so you can wear it clean if you want. But if you prefer to spice things up, turn more heads, and maybe even shock your grandma when you go visit her this weekend, then smear some blood red dye all over the edges and on your fingers and throw in a few squeaks of pain in there for good measure.

A Bright Engagement: Man Builds Induction-Powered LED Engagement Ring for Fiance

LED Engagement Ring

If you like it, then you should put a ring on it. But let’s do one up Beyonce and say that if you love her, then you’ll go ahead and build a ring for her. That’s what Ben Kokes did for his fiance. It took nearly four months and nine prototype versions before Ben was done with his project. He presented the ring to his girl this month and she loved it so much that she decided to make it her permanent ring instead of going to the jeweler to get one. Pretty neat, huh?

Ben started out by designing and developing a circuit that would be able to power up the ring inductively. In the end, he used a coil of wire wound around kaplon tape as the inductor and a small SMD capacitor to power up three tiny ultra-bright LEDs.
