Now That’s One-of-a-Kind: Fingerprint Wedding Rings

Fingerprint Wedding Band

 

Looking for a ring that’s truly unique and one-of-a-kind for you and your partner? Then put your fingerprints on them! It makes sense, considering no one in this world has the same set of prints. Simply make a copy of your prints using ink on paper, scan them, and send them off to Adzias Jewelry Atelier, who will take care of the rest.

The rings can be personalized further since you have the option of engraving it with your initials, anniversary date, or whatever else you want to put on it. Adzias guarantees that the fingerprint grooves won’t ever fade, just like your love and devotion to one another.

The made-to-order fingerprint rings are priced at $1,480.

Gesture Sensitive Bluetooth Ring To Control All Your Electronics

logbar-ring

Judging by how easily the company has surpassed its crowdfunding goal, it’s tempting to believe that people are really hyped over a Bluetooth connected ring that can recognize gestures and control your various applications. We’re not really convinced yet, but we’re open to changing our minds. The device is called, quite simply, Ring, and is made by a company called Logbar. It contains an accelerometer, a Bluetooth chip, a vibrating mechanism, and a tiny battery. With it you can send texts, launch applications, make payments, and control external devices. Gestures are easily customized through the related application, and sensitivity and accuracy seem to be more than adequate. The point is, it seems to work, and appears sort of fun.

So what’s our issue with it? Well, aside from it being pretty “gee-whiz”, we just can’t imagine how this will be socially acceptable. Google Glass is already having some problems, so can you imagine a train car full of people with their index fingers pointed, air-writing their texts? Why not just text, then?

In any case, if looking odd in public is not a concern of yours, a $165 pledge will get you one.

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.

Awesome Ring-Worn Clock Could Be Real, Isn’t Yet

ringclock-xl

Here’s to hoping that an ambitious crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo not only reaches its funding goals, but that the product in question turns into reality even if funding is met (which is not always guaranteed). It’s called the Ring Clock, and is meant to be a time telling device worn on one of your fingers. It allegedly uses “ultra-thin mono-color LEDs” and a “6mAh, ultrathin rechargeable lithium polymer battery” to display the time at the twist of its body. The battery, though small, would be enough to give the ring one week of autonomy. Charging would be done wirelessly, through induction using the Qi standard and would involve nothing more than placing it on a charging plate. It’s an eye catching product, which would be sure to start several conversations at parties and altogether make you look like an Alpha geek.

But here’s the rub. The company is seeking $287,400 in funding. So far, the only concrete thing they have is a work-in-progress prototype which appears to be nothing more than the external body with laser cut numerals. They admit that they will use a third of the funds to complete said prototypes… so we’re not even sure if the concept can actually be pulled off. We’re not informed of any track record they may have, and considering how ahead of its time it is, we’re worried that even if they manage to reach their goal, that the Ring Clock will never be successfully manufactured. Still, this is the nature of crowd funding: to give an opportunity to people to produce innovative products when they might not otherwise have fit traditional criteria for doing so. Let’s hope they pull it off. It’s an $185 pledge to get in line for yours, which might arrive in April 2014 if all goes well.

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.

Jewelry That Sings: The Songs From ‘Legend of Zelda’ As Rings

Zelda Songs Rings

Now you can wear your favorite song from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask on your digits. You might be wondering how, since songs are meant to be listened and not worn. Well, Etsy seller PeregrineStudios went about it creatively by recreating the button combos that you have to push to play a certain song and embossing this combination on a ring.

The rings are crafted from stainless steel, and three different finishes are available: natural, bronze-plated, and gold plated. Personally, I think the natural finish looks best. What about you?

The rings are made to order and will take two to four weeks to create. All 12 songs from Ocarina of Time are available, and the tunes from Majora’s Mask were recently added to the roster. Each ring costs $59.99. Six-ring sets are also available for $249.99.

These Wedding Rings Say ‘I Do’ in Wavelengths

I Do Wedding Rings

Of course, both parties in a couple have already said “I do” to each other prior to buying the rings or walking down the aisle. But nothing makes that point across or any clearer than these wedding bands by Japanese artist and designer Sakurako Shimizu.

These custom-made bands are simplistic but contain a very strong message. Whether it’s “I do”, “Forever”, or “I Love You”, couples can say anything they want to and then wear it on their ring fingers afterwards. It sounds confusing, but that’s where the beauty and uniqueness of these rings lie: Shimuzu’s unique design will have the couple say their word or phrase of choice, which is then recorded. The wavelength form of these recordings will then be featured on the rings.

The wavelength bands are available in silver, 18K and 14K white, yellow, and red gold, and platinum.

3D Printed Bottle Opener Rings: Pop Bottles Open Like a Superhero

Opener Ring

Some of the best things in life are kept sealed inside bottles. Maybe that’s why a lot of seemingly random stuff–like rulers, remote controls, phone cases, and now, rings–are being fitted with bottle openers, so the user or the wearer can pop a bottle open anytime, anywhere, without having to get up to do so.

These bottle opener rings are 3D printed from stainless steel and feature logos from well-known franchises like BatmanTransformers, and Superman. You can check out the rest of the rings after the break.
