Etsy seller Ye Olde Nerd Shoppe has 3-D printed a super cute Poke Ball box for only $20, and it got me thinking.

This would be perfect for an an engagement ring. Or maybe just a standard box for jewelry or knick knacks. It even has a push button release.

When designer Melissa Ng heard that her friend’s father was suffering from cancer, she sprung into action the best way she knew how: by creating something.

Ng’s college classmate, Rishi Gandhi, reached out for help when the medical bills resulting from his father’s stage 4 lung cancer became overwhelming. Gandhi, described by Ng as “the goofy/tough guy (but really a big softy)” was solemn in his heartbreaking words:

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”.

The masters at Takayas are at it again with another commissioned wedding ring set—this time based on Final Fantasy XIV. The ladies engagement ring is based off of Queen Nanamo’s character and the mens wedding band is based off of the Paladin class. Takayas describes the rings design:

Itsuka’s 18K yellow gold engagement ring is inspired by Queen Nanamo of Ul’dah and features a 1.00 ct pink morganite center stone. Because Queen Nanamo’s character wears a lot of delicate pink colors, we had to search for a while to find the right center stone. A pink sapphire would have been too saturated, but luckily, we were able to find a pale pink morganite that captured her color palette perfectly.

The front centerpiece of Queen Nanamo’s crown and wraps around the top shoulder of the band, and the bottom half of her crown wraps around the base of the shank. If you look closely, Takayas designed each of the prongs to form the symbol on the front of her dress.

Johann’s 18K white gold wedding band is based on the Paladin class he first played as! The Paladin sword’s guard frames his London blue topaz center stone, and the pattern along the band’s shank is the same pattern that runs down the length of the sword’s blade. While Itsuka’s engagement ring features a raised solitaire setting to elegantly highlight her center stone, Johann’s topaz is set in a deeper, more masculine style so that it seamlessly merges with the sword pattern.
