lightning-gunblade-final-fantasy-wedding-ring-takayas-1024x1024

Back in July, Takayas Custom Jewelry sent us info about a custom Final Fantasy XIII-2 Gunblade wedding band that they made for a client. This new version is inspired by that ring, but is based on the pattern from the blade rather than the guard. They also incorporated a rabbit on the inside of the band instead of the Cactuars that were hidden on the inside of the previous ring. As always, the final product is gorgeous. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]

Diehard Final Fantasy VII fans will appreciate this custom Sephiroth engagement ring from Takayas. The design is pretty unique: it features an emerald as the center stone, and its flanked by Masamune on one side and Sephiroth’s wing on the other.

Here’s what Takayas had to say about the ring: [click to continue…]

The Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball crossover you’ve always dreamed of has extended beyond fan fiction into custom engagement rings thanks to Takayas. The design features Sailor Uranus’ Sailor Scout symbol on each side of the sapphire heart container with the Four-Star Dragon Ball in the center of each symbol.

David and Bryn knew they wanted a heart container in place of a traditional center stone, but they also wanted to find a way to add a Sailor Uranus symbol and Four-Star Dragonball into the design without crowding the ring too much.

Takayas framed the heart container on either side with the Sailor Uranus sample image symbol they provided. His initial design plan was to place the Dragonball in the ring’s under gallery, but they came up with the idea to incorporate the four star Dragonball in the center of each symbol which worked out perfectly.

Did she say yes? Of course she did! Who wouldn’t? Check out more pictures of the ring below. [click to continue…]

jmim_stargate_sg1_spinner_ring

This Stargate Spinner Ring is from sterling silver and the chevrons and glyphs actually spin! Imagine all of the adventures your finger can have traveling through space. Hahaha…yes. Don’t try to stick anything else in there.

This clever ring is hand-cast in solid sterling silver and mimics the Stargate, with two separate, highly detailed components: an outer ring and an inner ring. The outer ring has a three-dimensional design that features the nine chevrons (visible from both sides) and architectural detailing along the top. The inner ring sports a screen-accurate recreation of the glyphs that orient the Stargate, also visible from either side. The best part? The two rings actually spin around each other!

Stargate Sterling Spinner Ring ($124.99)

Once again, Takaya’s Custom Jewelry has tipped us to a new custom ring and we love it. Commissioned by a League of Legends fan, this platinum ring’s main design is based on Heartseeker Ashe’s bow and arrow. The setting represents Poro horns, but they’re more rounded to flow with the rest of the ring.

I think the sapphire looks gorgeous in this setting. I’m guessing the person who receives it will be very happy. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Takayas Custom Jewelry recently created a pair of wedding rings for two diehard Legend of Zelda fans named Megan and Jonathan. Majora’s Mask was a childhood favorite, so they decided that their rings should mimic the Clock Tower. Both rings feature an incredible amount of detail—look closely and you’ll spot Anju’s Moon Mask and Kafei’s Sun Mask on Megan’s ring. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Heartbeat Rings

I’ve always considered myself a romantic, but I’m having a hard time trying to figure out if these new heartbeat rings are cool or creepy.

The idea here is that your rings are always connected to one another through Bluetooth and a mobile app. When you tap your ring, it will respond with your partner’s heartbeat in real time—allowing you to both see and feel the rhythm.

The rings themselves come in stainless steel or 18K rose gold and have a sapphire housing to prevent scratching. They also come with a single or couple’s charging jewelry box.

Personally, I’d be worried that I’d tap the ring and it wouldn’t work for some reason and I’d be thrown into a panic attack thinking my husband’s dead, but I’m cynical like that. I’m sure lots of people would find this the most romantic thing ever. Check out more pics and videos below. [click to continue…]
