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.

arc reactor ring

If you like Iron Man, this is the ring for you. The latest accessory from Paul Michael Designs features Tony Stark’s arc reactor in a more delicate setting than the Iron Man armor. It’s made from palladium and custom cut light blue sapphires. Yes, you probably need to be as wealthy as Tony Stark to afford it, but the quality and design makes it worth it.

millennium falcon ring

With this new Millennium Falcon ring creation, Paul Michael Designs might erase the line “she might not look like much…” from Star Wars lexicon. Because holy Ewoks, this is a beautiful and clever design. A ring is already the right shape to look like the spaceship, and the cockpit looks like a natural extension. I love that it’s available in three different metals and with different stones.

hobbit ring

Have you heard? Wearable hobbit holes are all the rage these days. Though we’ve seen rings that feature the recognizable green door of Bag End, this teensy tiny sculpted version is something different. Artist Flocature built the home of the Baggins’ from Super Sculpey and then she painted it with acrylics and plopped it onto an adjustable ring. I like to imagine there are super little versions of Frodo and Bilbo inside reading and plotting adventures.

Check out more angles of the miniature abode after the break.

The idea of wearable tech, while fantastic, is nothing new. In fact, it’s centuries old. China Daily shared this picture of a functioning abacus ring that reportedly dates back to the 17th century, during the Qing Dynasty. It’s being manipulated with a needle because the beads are too small for clumsy fingers to handle. The delicate jewelry is smaller than a thumb!

It may be one of the first smart rings. The abacus is a tool used to complete calculations, and even though most people rely on computers and mobile devices to do math for them, the abacus is still used in some parts of the world – perhaps not on such a small scale though.

Geeks are quite creative when it comes to memorable events in their lives—especially weddings and proposals. For the most hardcore fans, ring boxes and even the engagement rings themselves get specialized with a geeky theme. It’s a big moment when you decide to spend your life with someone who is probably just as, if not more, passionate about a fandom as you are.

firefly ring

Thanks to Etsy shop Geekonista, I can just dump all my old jewelry and deck myself out with Serenity. She offers the Firefly class transport ship in a variety of wearables including the beautiful ring pictured above. It’s made from 925 sterling silver that’s been slightly weathered. The beloved spaceship wouldn’t look right if she was too shiny. Complete the look with Serenity earrings, a necklace, and a bracelet.

Rings that control everything tend to be evil, but this ring has only good intentions. It uses a Bluetooth signal to connect to all kinds of devices that you can then control with simple finger gestures that can be customized. Compose text messages, play music, turn on your television and even get phone notifications through a series of lights and vibrations. This project is currently on kickstarter where it has blown right past its goal, but you can still get in on the action with a pledge of $165 or more.
