If your girl friend is an Indiana Jones fan, that is. Otherwise, you might want to rethink going for this ring.
We’re no strangers to geeky jewelry. As a matter of fact, we love them! Remember the Atomic and Microscope Pendants? How about the list of Valentine’s Day Jewelry Gifts for Geeks?
This piece of jewelry is not an ordinary gift, though. A guy going by the name Homerliwag on Reddit gave the ring to his girl friend when he popped the question. I suppose that not all girls will appreciate being presented with this Indiana Jones engagement ring, but if you think about it, the thought and work that was put into the ring might very well be enough to impress a lady! Of course, if that lady can’t resist Indiana Jones, then the story ends right here.
Homerliwag did put a lot of effort into his engagement ring. One look at the schematic can tell you that!
In addition to having the engagement ring custom-made, he also paid a lot of attention to the presentation. He made a custom ring box – none of that generic black or white velvet/leather box – out of a 1920s steel soap bar box. Inside, he put some sculpting clay to achieve the effect of having ruins inside. Archeology, yes?
It is to be expected that since he had already gone this far, he would also go to great lengths to make the actual giving of the ring unique. And so he did. He made other boxes, and asked his girl friend to choose wisely. Of course, he had measures in place to make sure she chose the correct box, and voila, he had one happy girl friend. Or ecstatic, maybe.
Plus points for creativity! Now what theme would you choose if you were to give a similar gift? Think, and choose wisely. V-Day is coming up.
