Critter Fingers? Totally

animal-rings-1-595x446

We suppose these are just one step removed from Crazy Cat Lady status, and that just may be enough to motivate some of you to get them. These handmade animal rings are made by Japanese artist Jiro Miura and come in almost endless varieties. They’re made to order, which could mean that it’ll take a while to get your order, but the website is in Japanese and Google Translate isn’t cooperating. So explore, poke around, and discover if you’ll be able to place an order for a set of Animal Rings.

“I Love You” “I Know” Rings Are Made For The Coolest Of Lovers

iknow-1

When they were filming the original Star Wars, the scene where Han Solo is about to be frozen and carbonate, and he has to say farewell to Leia calls for him to reply a tepid “I love you too” to her expected “I love you”. Instead, Harrison Ford improvised the now-famous “I know”, and the rest is history. It sets the tone for his character, and makes for a scene so memorable that ThinkGeek has seen it appropriate to make two rings that commemorate the exchange. The “I love you / I know” rings are made from 316L surgical stainless steel, are officially licensed Star Wars merchandise, and feature the Rebel Alliance symbol secretly engraved inside the band. If you and your significant other consider yourselves fans of the franchise, as well as fans of each other, you might want to consider spending the very reasonable $20 asking price.

RingStash Lets You Keep Your Proposal A Secret Until The Time Is Right

RingStash-Open

Imagine a scenario where you’re going to propose to your longtime girlfriend, ok? You have it planned just right, and you know the exact moment you’re going to pop the question. And then she asks you “Is that a ring box in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?” Surprise: ruined. Ring boxes are traditionally rather big and bulky, at least for today’s skinnier jean standards. RingStash is a new kind of box that’s only 0.5″ thick, yet presents the ring in as elegant a manner as fits such a special occasion. When closed, the ring lays flat inside, but when opened, a mechanism rotates it 90 degrees to display it in a spectacular fashion. It’s stealthy enough to carry around in a pocket, and won’t have your girlfriend asking you questions about unusual bulges in your pants. It’s a newer way to carry out an old tradition, and… we would be recommending it if it weren’t for the asking price: $99! At that price, we suggest to just wear a blazer and hide the $10 box in the inside pocket instead.

Make Mini-Landscapes On Your Fingers With These Wooden Rings

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So here’s a novel idea. Etsy seller ‘CliveRoddy’ makes some cool laser-cut high quality birch plywood rings that come in one of three shapes: tree, mountain, or house. You can then combine and stack any of the three to make cool little landscapes on your fingers. Each one of these rings comes in three versions, so in the end you’re left with quite a few possible combinations. It’s quirky and fun… and that’s really all there is to it. It would be better if these rings weren’t made from wood, and feature more things than the three available, but the idea is really neat. It’s $24 for a set of 3 rings, but that’s only of one kind. If you want to combine all three shapes, you’ll have to spend $72.

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.

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.
