Nifty Photo-Projecting Wedding Ring

Bristol-based artist Luke Jerram had this novel wedding ring designed for his wife Shelina Nanji. The ring, created in a collaboration with jeweler Tamrakar, contains tiny slides of the couple. When placed in a darkened room with a light source behind it, the slides can be projected through the mini lens built into the ring.

Jerram says the ring was inspired by Stanhopes, which were popular trinkets during the 19th century, by which microphotographs could be carried and viewed inside.

Not surprisingly, Jerram gets asked to make this ring frequently for other couples, but he politely declines — this ring was a unique design made specially for his wife.

    I love the concept, and with some proper fabrication, this could be more awesome.

    So why doesn't the creator make one that's a locket and mass market it?

    Now that is love :) And super cool to boot. Talk about a family heirloom

    @picholine, Marriage is not about huge rocks and a $2,500.00 price tag. Ugly or not the dedication and time invested in something as truly unique as this gift makes aesthetics, price, and shiny factor a completely moot point.

    Best wishes to the newly weds.

    @Travis agreed. and thanks for speaking up.

    @picholine like beauty, “ugly” is in the eyes of the beholder. it also comes from within. and sometimes it's a state of mind. just saying…
