Early last year we featured Etsy seller Cloud9Tungsten’s amazing Doctor Who themed ring sets, which are perfect for the Time Lord, Lady or variation thereupon you want to spend the rest of your life with.

Now Cloud9 Tungsten has released new versions of their wonderful rings. Marked with circular Gallifreyan on the outside, each design comes with free laser engraving on the inside of the ring, and is made from Tungsten. They’re remarkably affordable too, with 3-piece sets running $150-$175. Needless to say, it’s nice to see something so unique for a wedding that isn’t going to break the bank.

Check out additional designs after the break…

There are very few things in this world that warrant the destruction of a book. Artist Jeremy May of Littlefly maaaay be one of these exceptions thanks to his amazing one-of-a-kind jewelry designs. The pieces are created by laminating together hundreds of pages from old, discarded books—shaping them into rings, bracelets, necklaces, and more before being finished with a high gloss coating.

These beautiful pieces of jewelry are all carefully cut from the books so that they fit snugly within the excavated space—like a hidden jewelry box with a single treasure inside.

Fraser Stag Brooch Horizontal

Outlander season 2 starts Saturday, April 9th, so it seems like a perfect time to show you this gorgeous Fraser Stag brooch by RockLove Jewelry.

This handmade solid sterling silver brooch features two entwined Celtic knotwork stags with a white-tail stick pin to keep it secure—all inspired by Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander.

A bearskin cloak, to be exact, fastened at the neck with a silver-gilt brooch as large as the palm of my hand. It was made in the shape of two leaping stags, backs arched and heads meeting to form a circle. The locking pin was a short, tapered fan, the head of it shaped like the tail of a fleeing deer.

You may not have a bearskin cloak, but I’m sure this brooch goes with all sorts of great fabrics. Speaking of fabrics, I can’t wait to see the new French clothes when Outlander returns.

little mermaid ring

Our friends at Takayas Custom Jewelry have shared another nerdy engagement ring design with us, and this time the lucky lady (Sabrina) is a big fan of The Little Mermaid. Her boyfriend Robert wanted to incorporate the movie into the ring design as a reminder of one of her favorite childhood memories.

For this ring’s design, Takayas wanted to play with the idea of subtly capturing the “under the sea” look. He created the band out of two 14K white gold mermaid tails and used the fins as the ring’s setting for the 1.02 ct aquamarine.

The biggest challenge was making the tails look as if they were moving in water, rather than rigidly holding the center stone in place. To create the appearance of organic underwater movement, Takayas designed the tails’ fins to twist and curve around the aquamarine. If you look closely, the tips of the fins form the ring’s prongs.

We love the subtle elegance of this design. Needless to say, Sabrina said “yes”.
