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.

Do More Than Just Wear ‘Em: McWhinney Active Wedding Rings

McWhinney Active Wedding Rings

 

People spend thousands of dollars on wedding rings without considering the fact that they might be too tight or too loose a few years down the line. Then there’s the matter of wearing them and taking them off if your significant other chose a ring in a size that’s a little off. Cue Jeff McWhinney and his line of “active” wedding rings, which have a unique hinged mechanism that’s similar to the one on watch straps.

That way, the rings are easy to remove when you’re about to play some sports, wash dishes, or do something where rings typically get in the way. The CNC-machined rings are available in six designs and in a wide range of sizes. Prices start at $825.

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.

For A Not-So-Little Kinda Love: Pony & Brony Wedding Rings

my-little-pony-brony-wedding-rings

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.

Celebrate, Don’t Exterminate: Life-Sized Dalek Wedding Cakes

Lifesize Dalek Cake

If you’re getting hitched and want to do it in style, then you might consider breaking from the usual themes and traditions and going for something really loud and bold instead. And if you happen to be a Whovian, then what better way to celebrate than to make some of the Doctor’s worst enemies a part of your party?

Daleks. I’m talking about life-sized Dalek cakes, like the ones a couple had Dinkeydoodle Designs make. One Dalek was the groom (cute tophat!) while the other one was the bride (it wouldn’t have been the bride without the veil.)

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.

Eco-Bride of the Year Makes Wedding Gown from 10,000 Recycled Bread Bag Clips

Wedding Gown

Movies often depict how little girls look forward to their wedding day, even though it’s probably still decades away. That’s not always true because some women couldn’t care less how their weddings went, just as long as they ended up with the man (or even woman) of their dreams.

Then there’s women like Stephanie Watson. She planned and looked forward to her wedding for almost ten years, but with good reason: she was still collecting the ‘material’ for her wedding dress. It’s extravagant, it’s custom-made, and it’s truly one-of-a-kind. That’s because she made it herself using over 10,000 recycled bread bag clips. Now, not everyone here is up to making a dress such as this one, but with all the effort Stephanie has put into making this dress, it has made her wedding day even more special.

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.

Sort-Of Fairy Tale Wedding: Couple Gets Married as Shrek and Fiona

Shrek Wedding

You know how some couples decide to do theme weddings that are either so sweet or so spot-on (or both) that it goes viral and the whole blogosphere reads about it in the next couple of days? Well, we spotted another wedding that’ll probably make the rounds on the Internet, although for different reasons: the groom and the bride got married dressed and made up to look like Shrek and Fiona (in her ogre form), respectively.

I mean, it’s still fairly sweet (what wedding isn’t?) and the costumes look pretty well made, but I just have to ask: Why?
