Looking for that special gift for the Star Trek fan in your life who has everything? Well now it’s easy, get them to agree to marry you then buy this…
We may have found that perfect gift for the Trekkie in your life. Valerie Lazutina who runs Etsy Shop has designed an engagement ring modeled after the famous Starfleet insignia.
The insignia is instantly recognisable – even to non-fans – and is certainly an alternative take on the second most important ring you’ll ever wear.
The ring is available in sterling silver, 14K white gold or yellow gold via VaLa Jewellery, and is “studded with a 3mm round brilliant white sapphire. Why not a diamond? According to CBC News, sapphires are commonplace gemstones in the fictional series, which makes a white sapphire much more fitting than a diamond. (With a starting price of $500, not only does a sapphire better suit the Trekkie theme, but lack of diamond also makes the ring fairly affordable compared to others on the market.)” write the Huffington Post.
Lazutina told HuffPost Weddings that she designed the ring for a client who wanted a Star Trek-inspired engagement ring for his girlfriend: “He wanted to propose to her at the Sci-fi Convention in Colorado in front of Jonathan Frakes, Commander William T. Riker on “Star Trek: The Next Generation”.
The rest, as they say, is history and the ring is now available for everyone after she received numerous other requests…
Marriage… the final frontier
