What happens when geeks fall in love? Well, whether they agree that Halo is the best video game ever, or argue over which one will be the Doctor’s next companion, or who will catch all the Pokémon first; here are some great ideas for a very geeky engagement.
Getting Down on One Knee (to Save the Universe of Course)
To get everything started the question must be popped, and what better way to do that than with a geeky obsession. Whether that is video games, comics, Sci-fi shows, rocks and minerals, computers, or books, Geek Insider has the information needed to see to make informed decisions about making the beginning of the rest of geeky life together amazingly a-dork-able.
There is a plethora of choices out there anything and everything geeky, from Pokemon to Play Station to Adventure Time to computers to meteorites have been made into engagement rings. There is even a company that grows rings made of bone harvested from your significant other’s skin cells, so you can wear your partner’s bone.
If you are prone to geek out over Indiana Jones, there is an Indian Jones ring that has a golden topaz gemstone, reminiscent of the golden statue stolen in Indian Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Arc, with Indie’s whip in white gold creating the band.
Or if you’re thinking of asking someone to run away with you through time and space, a ring created to look like the band is the TARDIS, or just the one where the TARDIS is engraved on it would look lovely. But there is also a beautiful golden ring with dark blue gems in a TARDIS ring box saying “Will you be my companion?” that will get the job done even better.
If you love comics or cartoons, check out these rings. A Spider Man ring that is white gold with red and blue stones set into a spider web surrounding a square diamond, the inside of which has the spider symbol.
Or maybe a Decepticon is better, with this beautiful simple looking ring that when looked at closer shows a side face with the Decepticon symbol on it. Maybe Batman is more the style of comics you are looking for with this stainless steel black band and silver bat symbol engraving.
Harry Potter is also (of course!) found in this geeky ring collection with a beautiful silver setting that is made to look like a snitch’s wings and a topaz stone. Or there is a more obvious route with a 14karate gold ring made to look like Harry’s glasses and lightning strike birthmark.
Old computer and technology parts have been made into engagement rings for geeky lovers, as well. There are rings made of meteorite, cat 5 matching his and her rings, microchip rings, Lego rings, DNA strand rings, and even rings etched with the sound waves of the one you love saying “I love you” or whatever the two of you want said.
But for those geeks that love Zeld, Zora, Stargate, Star Wars, Dungeons and Dragons, or gaming there are many choices, as well. Like this beautiful white gold, blue and diamond gemstone R2D2 ring, or a white gold and yellow gold replica of the gate from Stargate, white gold 12 sided dice replica from the Dungeons and Dragons game set in a beautiful white gold band with tiny diamonds around it.
