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.
