thor jewelry 1

You can channel the power of Thor without wearing his costume and cape by putting on a snazzy necklace from King Ice. The company has four Thor-inspired pendants: Thor’s helmet in in either 14 carat gold or rhodium and Mjölnir in 14 carat gold or 14 carat gold with a black handle. The designs have some heft to them and look fancy enough for the King or Queen of Asgard.

As far as inventive and geeky marriage proposals go, this BioShock proposal definitely takes the cake. Three and a half years ago, gamer Stevie Kopas bought an unnecessary copy of BioShock from her local GameStop so she could chat with the guy working behind the counter. That love-struck GameStop employee, Justin Starnes, became her boyfriend, and this past weekend he gave her another, more personal copy of the game. He asked her if she’d seen the new BioShock game and he handed her something called “Bioshock: New Beginnings.” Inside the  case, there was a controller layout of her entire life (watching the Walking Dead and Have Existential Conversation About The Apocalypse were my favorites) and on the back of the case there were pictures of the couple. The instruction booklet also included the request: “Would You Kindly Marry Me?”

Just in case hypnotism didn’t work on Stevie, Justin made sure to also include a beautiful ring too. Here’s what Stevie had to say about the whole thing:

“On August 15, 2014, Justin Starnes asked me, Stevie Kopas, to be his wife. I am the happiest gal in Rapture.”

batman harley earrings

Harley meets Batman for this fun pair of earrings from Hot Topic. The harlequin diamonds on the bat logo really do kind of work. I wonder what Mistah J would have to say about that?

hogwarts ties

Not up for a full on cosplay as a Hogwarts student from Harry Potter? Instead of assembling a school uniform you can wear a necklace that represents your house instead. Etsy seller Jewellery by Lizzie G has designed cute pendants from shrink plastic that feature striped ties from Hufflepuff, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. I sort of want to wear one of each.

Groot is the tree on everyone’s mind these days, and DeviantArt user DeeArtist321 channeled her appreciate for the tree-like being into a wearable item. She sculpted Groot’s head into a pendant with copper wire and included the following description with the picture:

Groot pendant made of copper wire and gemstones. I’ve used blue sheen labradorite for his eyes, and for the back (flying rocket, inspired by Milano colors – blue, orange and white) I used clear quartz points, orange carnelian from Botswana, blue obsidian – as a “magnifying glass” – for the tiny white opal behind it (you can see opal rainbow colors shining through)…

I think she nailed the likeness, and the choice of labradorite is perfect for the character’s kind eyes.

Are you brave and ready to fight evil? Then you might be worthy of this Legion Flight Ring. The DC Comics’ Legion of Super-Heroes team wears rings like this replica from Think Geek. The snazzy accessory is made from gold plated stainless steel so it’s a lot sturdier than the plastic ring that came with the action figures.

Check out another pic of the ring after the break.

fire emblem box top

Redditor PrionBacon and his fiancée started their romance thanks to a mutual love of the turn-based strategy series Fire Emblem. When he proposed, he constructed a box that would recognize this fact, taking the design from Fire Emblem: Awakening for the Nintendo 3DS.

Made from ABS plastic and using acrylic ball gems, the 3D printed box has a ring cradle in the shape of a 3DS button “A.” It holds an old phone displaying a photoshopped image from the game featuring the happy couple achieving “S-Support,” the highest support rank that also serves as a condition for marriage between characters.

See inside the box after the break.
