May The Force Be With You

An Engagement Ring Fit For A Kick-Ass Space Princess

Victoria, aka ScruffyRebel, from Syfy’s Heroes of Cosplay got a fantastic moment captured on film during the finale. Her boyfriend Jinyo proposed while in Star Wars cosplay, with a Leia-inspired ring, and with an assist from the one and only Peter Mayhew. Just one thing, Victoria was wearing a Star Trek uniform. Awkward! Not really, but I had to say it. Because of the show, they couple had to keep the news under wraps for six months. I can’t even imagine. The ring was created by Paul Michael Design, who you may remember from their past geek-related work on the Adventure Time and R2-D2 engagement rings.

This Custom Adventure Time Engagement Ring Should Technically Fit Anyone’s Finger

Because it’s Jake.

Comic creator Josh Adams (Doctor Who ongoing, Batman Odyssey) saw Paul Bierker’s R2-D2 ring we posted on The Mary Sue a while back and decided he needed to propose to his girlfriend Saori with an equally geeky engagement ring. Adams contacted Bierker with his idea – Jake taking the shape of a ring – and he made it a reality. We’re very happy to know we were at least in some way responsible for this happening. Hit the jump to see the finished product on Saori’s finger.

You’re Going To Want These Swanky Star Wars Rings Even If You Aren’t Getting Married

These rings are a thing of beauty. Etsy seller SwankMetalsmithing, aka Chelsea Swank, has been aprenticing with her father for over a year. They use a Computer Aided Design process to create the intricate designs you see here. According to her profile they “use recycled metals and we strictly deal in conflict free/fair trade stones.” But what makes Swank’s work so exciting is much of it is based in the Star Wars universe. Check out the designs that would not be out of place in a wedding ceremony but would work for anyone looking to make a geeky fashion statement. If you’re willing to pay the price. The Star Wars rings start around $325 but can reach over $1,000.

Portal Rings: Hopefully the Wedding Cake Won’t Be a Lie

We’ve featured rings inspired by Portal before, but these are probably appropriate for a more special occasion. Created by Etsy seller 17thbit, they are 8 mm wide and come in sterling silver. One version reads “You Have the Portal to My Heart,” the other features the companion cube. So obviously, they don’t have to be wedding rings, but they sure could be. If that’s your thing, you lovey-dovey gamers, you. More views of the rings after the jump.

For A More Civilized Age

A Simple Wedding Band for a More Civilized Age

When we last saw Homer Liwag, he was making some very bold moves. Moves like giving your girlfriend a ring box with a tiny bag of sand in it, and telling her that Indiana Jones got there first, in order to stall for time as you designed and commissioned a beautiful Indiana Jones inspired engagement ring. The results of that gambit were something we were happy to post back in January.

But, generally, the engagement ring isn’t the last ring that’s involved in the whole getting married process, and so recently Homerliwag shared with us a link to his latest creation: a Star Wars themed wedding band that’s a little bit lightsaber, and a little bit Vader’s chestplate.
