Because these days you risk being rejected and dying confused and alone if you propose with some plain-ass engagement ring, Redditor DisturbedRobot (not cool, bro) had a custom Battlestar Galactica Cylon ring made for his bride-to-be, Amy. And, because the ring had such a sweet sci-fi theme, she said yes. Plus, I don't know, maybe they love each other (I don't know them personally so I can't say).
When DisturbedRobot met his girlfriend at a Battlestar Galactica party, he knew he had to put a ring on it. So he came up with the idea of making a ring that looks like a Cylon and aimed for the stars. He used the gold / diamonds from his grandmother's ring, had his sketches modeled in Maya and then reforged by jewelry crafter Craig Elliott into the scifi based on his specifications.
Admittedly, it is a sharp looking ring. Not something I'd wear, but only because it's an engagement ring and dudes usually don't wear engagement rings. At least not until they're proposed to. I said, AT LEAST NOT UNTIL THEY'RE PROPOSED TO. No takers? Damn, maybe my mom was wrong -- maybe I'm not such a catch after all.
Hit the jump for a bunch more shots of the design and final product as well as a shot of the happy couple after she said yes and it's crazy because her name is Amy and she looks a LOT like Amy Jo Johnson (the Pink Ranger) but she's not, she's a different Amy. It's blowing my mind.
Thanks to Terry, whose wedding band is like part meteorite and he keeps telling me it gives him magic powers even though he and I both know the only power it's giving him is to one to believe his own lies. It's sad really.
