This Amazingly Tacky Green Lantern Ring Is Worth $1,000
If you liked it then you should have put a Lantern Ring on it
Well, isn’t that a whole lotta shiny stuff, huh? Above is a ring by nOir Jewelry worth $1,000 that Warner Bros. wants to give to a “lucky” contest winner. In anticipation of the release of Green Lantern this Friday, WB is running a contest on Twitter, in which one enters oneself by retweeting this post. If you really want it. So, what’s all that stuff on it that’s worth $1,000?
Ring is solid brass plated in Rhodium with Cubic Zirconia stones in pave setting and a glowing green precious stone, simulating the essence of the Green Lanterns’ power.
Personally, as a ring wearer, I wouldn’t be caught dead in this hot gaudy bling mess. After the jump, some better, less expensive suggestions that do not require Twitter.
This one claims to be a replica of the power ring in the movie, and isn’t that really what we’d want in a Green Lantern power ringin real life? (When we may or may not be doing some Green Lantern LARP?). Currently sold out at SciFi Genre, where it costs but it’s also available at a few other retailers for prices between $38 and $55.
But this one at 80s Tees is still available and only $19.99!
This one at Superhero Stuff is a little cheaptastic wonder that projects the Lantern symbol u to 50 feet! That’s exciting! And only $9.99!
None of these have any precious stones, but you will probably feel less bad about losing or getting over any of them. Unless, of course, you like jewel-encrusted rings inspired by movies. Or, just fictional power rings.
