Projector Wedding Ring Will Make You Look Highly Unromantic by Comparison

24 Jul

Not content with your run of the mill giant rock, soon to be award winning husband Luke Jerram teamed up with a local jewelry designer to create a custom mini-projector wedding ring. And a chorus of ten thousand Awwwwwwws rang out.

Jerram’s design was inspired by 19th century stanhopes (don’t worry, I didn’t know what those were either!), and contains a tiny photographic slide paired with a lens. When illuminated by an equally small light source—Jerram says even a candle will work—the couple will have four adorable images of themselves projected wherever they go. Before you consider commissioning such a ring for your significant other and playing it off as your own work, the creator himself has a preemptive message:

“Congratulations on your engagement! I’m afraid this ring was a one off, made for my wife. I’m afraid you’ll have to make your own unique ring for your own unique partner!”

I can only hope my own unique partner never comes across this. Thanks for making us all look bad, Luke! [Luke Jerram via boomaloom via SlashGear via Gizmodo ]
