20 Geeky Engagement Rings you can actually buy

I love lists like this.  I love it when someone takes the time to research some awesome craft someone has made and then makes the public aware that this craft exists.  In this case it is custom jewelry that takes the form of a geeky engagement ring.  There are some more traditional modestly priced ones with a geeky twist like the Star Trek insignia ring made of white gold with diamonds for about $1550.

There is the less expensive ring that is just fantastic like the golden snitch ring.

There is the more traditional expensive rings with the geeky twist like the Superman cut ring that is priced at $3-4,000.

But what really made my day was when I scrolled to the bottom of the article and saw the last ring they had listed.  It is a gold ring with the triforce emblem on it.

I thought it looked really familiar and a lot like my tri-force pendant that I got from Rice Hat Samurai. Then I saw a post on his page that he made the list!  It is his ring!  Craft Hacker member Rice Hat Samurai made the list and has one of the top 20 geeky engagement rings!  I am very happy and very ecstatic that a member of our family was recognized in this way.  If you want to pass on your congratulations to him, head over to the forums and let him know.

I’m baaaack… so now I shall post!

Hey there! You may not remember me but about a month ago I made an intro post on the blog. The reason you all haven’t seen me post much is due to the fact that from the time I made that intro post to Sunday May 18th, I was finishing the planning for my wedding. Well the wedding happened on the 18th on a most gorgeous day on the beach and I am now a happily married woman. So on that note I decided to mark my return with a wedding related post.

I was perusing Etsy and found this lovely little shop called 100original. The artist Hara Kang hails from New Zealand and makes the most adorable wedding cake toppers. Some of them may not be strictly geeky but she does have a handful featuring favorite characters from movies and video games. My wedding was fish themed and my Matron of Honor made my cake topper but had I planned a geeky wedding I certainly would have considered having her make a custom wedding topper for me.

Check out her Totoro topper:

This Yoshi one is super adorable!

I have never been able to mold anything out of clay that doesn’t look like a lump. So these cake toppers just fascinate me to see the adorableness that one can make out of clay. Check this artist out on her etsy site: https://www.etsy.com/shop/100original?ref=l2-shopheader-name

Thanks for stopping by,
