You never know when a length of 550 Paracord Type III might come in handy. Hell, your Firefly bracelet might even save your life.
As we enter Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Infinity Stones have become increasingly important. We’ve seen a few pop up over the course of the first two phases, but it’s all going to come to a head once Phase 3 concludes in, oh, a billion years, or whatever.
Of course, all this focus on the Stones in the films has led to people craving a set of their own. People like Reddit user JarvisLatteier, who has designed a set of rings inspired by the Infinity Stones that glow in the goddamn dark thanks to the radioactive isotope tritium. [click to continue…]
ThinkGeek is touting this Solar Orbit Necklace as “the most complete solar system jewelry we’ve ever carried”. It even includes the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Plus, it won’t break your neck!
Celebrate our friendly neighborhood star stuff with this Solar Orbit Necklace. Its 21″ length features not only the Sun and all the planets (including the one that got voted off the island), but also our Moon and the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. And there’s a little star shaped charm hanging off the 3″ extender, like a comet. For those who are about to complain that the beads are not to scale, here’s the deal: we wanted you to be able to lift your head despite the asteroids in the belt being visible. We think that’s a fair trade-off.
It’s always fun when we have a new story and ring from Takayas Custom Jewelry and, if you’re a Sailor Moon fan, you’re going to really love this one.
Virgilio and Lauren are anime fans and cosplayers, so when they got engaged it was an opportunity to incorporate their interests into something unique.
When Virgilio asked Lauren to be his girlfriend, he did it with a Legend of Zelda-inspired necklace. When he proposed, they were at Anime Expo in Zelda cosplay—but the ring was inspired by something even closer to Lauren’s heart: Sailor Chibi Moon.
Takayas created this 14k rose gold ring with a pink tourmaline center stone and two accent rubies. They also include a subtle nod to Chibiusa’s signature hair bun clips and even a little 18k gold tiara.
Everything about both this ring and the couple makes me smile. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
If a dream is a wish your heart makes, them I’m going to be dreaming about having a ring like this Tangled-inspired amethyst sunburst engagement ring by Takayas Custom Jewelry.
Lawrence and Janina love Disney films, so Lawrence asked Takayas to make a Rapunzel-inspired ring because Janina also loves the color purple (Rapunzel’s dress the Royal Flag of Corona are purple in Tangled).
The amethyst centerpiece is set in the Sun Crest symbol while the pattern on the band is reminiscent of the pattern on lanterns in the movie. Plus, “My New Dream” is engraved on the inside of the band.
The best part of this whole story is how Lawrence proposed. Both he and Janina practice martial arts, so he proposed right after she passed her black belt test. The video is available below, and it’s heart-meltingly sweet. [click to continue…]
I always enjoy showing off one of Takayas’ custom rings because they’re so gorgeous and cleverly designed. That’s definitely the case with this custom Hylian Shield and Master Sword wedding ring set Takayas made for Keanan when he decided to propose to his girlfriend Kristina.
The Hylian Shield engagement ring is 14K white gold and features an accent ruby, emerald, and sapphire on either side of the shield centerpiece. Takayas also added 14K yellow gold to the Wingcrest accents.
The Master Sword’s diamond shape was made with beauty and safety in mind. By splitting the band, Takayas made sure the sword tip wouldn’t poke her finger or end up bent against the shield with repeated wear. On top of that, the back of the shield has a groove for the sword to fit into.
Indeed, the way the Hylian Shield engagement ring interlocks with the Master Sword wedding ring is particularly cool with this set. You can check out the rings individually below.
Takayas Custom Jewelry looked to J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy realm for a little inspiration when they created this incredible wedding ring set for LOTR fans Wesley and Sarah.
For Wesley’s ring, Takayas looked to The Key to Erebor for design inspiration while Sarah’s rings incorporated elements from the Leaves of Lorien and Arwen’s Evenstar necklace (they’re also designed to fit seamlessly together).
The finished products look like they were actually forged in Middle Earth. Take a closer look below.
