19 Creative and Nerdy Wedding Rings

Guest Post By Allison Foster

When two geeks fall in love, it can be an interesting experience. You see the thing about geeks or nerds or whatever you call them is that they are usually also very creative people. They do not want to settle for the same old boring things; especially when it comes to something as important and personal as wedding rings. They want something that will really show their creative side, portray their personalities and interests, and make them stand out above all the rest. From presentation to the ring itself, geeks can get creative in their proposals. Here are some awesomely creative and nerdy wedding rings that you have to see to believe!

1. A Part of My DNA – (above) These three wedding ring ideas borrow from biology. Great for all the science nerds out there, the rings are twisted in the double helixthat DNA is known for. From diamonds to tiny gems standing in for the base pairs, these rings could easily be personalized with the bride and groom’s birth stones. The simple gold ring is great for the man to wear.

2. We Just Click – Integrating an Ethernet port and plug, these his and hers wedding rings are a tech nerd’s dream come true. A little too boxy and chunky for my tastes, they still have a charm about them, but maybe they should be worn around the neck instead of on their fingers?

3. You Fry My Circuits –It is not only the ring that stands out in this image but the box it is in as well. The traditional red velvet heart box is filled with a circuit board. The ring itself features a tiny microchip instead of a diamond at the center.

4. Forever in My Memory –(above) The design of this simple ring was inspired by a USB or thumb drive. The USB plug sits in the center with its adjoining port just a bit away.

5. We Have Chemistry – (above) For chemistry nerds everywhere, we have the ring for you. Using the Periodic Table of Elements, the material of the ring is clearly illustrated with a stamp of science approval. From Ag for silver to Au for gold and Pt for platinum, you have a wide array of metals to choose from.

6. Through the Wormhole –Any geek who is a fan of the movie, Stargate, or the multiple television series based on it such as Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, and Stargate Universe, will recognize the chevrons, alien symbols, and watery void that makes up the wormhole between other worlds. This simple diamond band is beautiful, but the box it sits in gives it even more significance. Plus, I love the little pun ‘engaged’ that also refers to the wormhole being opened.

7. I Love You for Eternity – This ring is a classic Mobius Strip, the example of infinity. With the added twist, the band never appears to end. The three diamonds only serve to show the one-sidedness of this mathematical anomaly.

8. I Love You to Eight Bits – The Space Invaders game was one of the earliest and most popular games ever created. This ring features an ‘alien’ in all its eight bit glory. The boxy shape is due to it being created only in eight bits, like an original Nintendo game. A great ring for serious gamers.

9. You Transformed my Love – This ring looks normal at first, but when you take a look at the side you see that it is anything but normal. The metal ‘face’ on the side is the logo for a Transformer, a kid’s toy line that spawned cartoons and, recently, hit blockbuster films.

10. A Confident Love – These two simple rings look pretty normal, at first. In fact, if you do not know anything about the Star Wars movie series, you might miss the joke. The cocky fly boy, Han Solo, responds “I know” when the beautiful princess, Leia, tells him “I love you”. That spirit lives on in this wedding ring pair.

11. Hello There Beautiful –Hello Kitty is more than just an Asian fad, it is a worldwide phenomenon. From kids’ backpacks to purses and pencils to engagement rings, it seems like you can find that cute white kitten everywhere! Delicate and adorable, the heart shaped diamond really makes this ring stand out.

12. All of Time and Space –This TARDIS inspired ring is for the serious Doctor Who fan. The long lived English science fiction television series has spawned a rabid fan base, and the Doctor’s signature space and time ship, the TARDIS, has a life of its own. This ring incorporates the boxy design but accents the windows with diamonds. Just gorgeous.

13. Big Blue Box –Another take on the popular Doctor Who franchise, the ring is splendid but nothing unusual. However the box it is presented in is perfect. Painted the same vivid blue as the Doctor’s TARDIS and accessories with windows and the words “Police Call Box”, this box is a treasure of its own.

14. Luv U 4Ever –Texting language goes off screen with this simple ring. Combing a less than sign with a number three, the classic texter’s heart is there for everyone to see. Now that is true shorthand for love.

15. Those Who Play Together Stay Together –This ring is inspired by the Sony Playstation remote control. With a red gem in the O shape, a blue one in the X shape, a green one in the triangle shape and a pink one in the square shape, this diamond centered ring really matches the remote in every way.

16. A Portal from My Heart to Yours –The mind and space warping video game, Portal, is the subject of these unique rings. Opening a portal between two places means that an object can magically pass through it. In this case it is a silver heart. These two lovers will always be connected!

17. Where No Man Has Gone Before –Fans of the classic Star Trek television series will recognize the emblem this ring has been patterned after. The diamond accent adds a touch of class to the simple dual bands. At least they can wish each other the classic Vulcan greeting, “Live Long and Prosper”!

18. Take a Chance – This dice inspired ring blends a love of gaming with a love for a mate. Great for all those who can’t get gaming out of their minds and hearts.

19. Classic Romance – The classic gamer paring of Mario and Princess Peach is one for the ages, and you and your partner can be the same! This cute and simple ring presentation is charming and appeals to the gamer without going overboard.

There are literally hundreds of awesome geeky ring ideas out there. From games to movies, mythology to steampunk, there is a ring for every taste and inclination. If you ever get to the point you are picking out rings remember to look around and think outside the box… unless that box is blue!

Picking Out The Right Ring For Your Bride

There is a common misconception when it comes to engagement rings, that they all have to be diamonds and they have to be expensive. Let’s get real and realize that not everyone has the same style or the money to do so.

An engagement is to signify to your bride and others that you have made the commitment to marry this person in the future and an engagement ring is the sign of that love. An engagement ring tends to be the ‘wow factor’ compared to the wedding band that a bride receives on her wedding day during the vow exchange. Picking the right ring isn’t as hard as you think. Choose an engagement ring that signifies your love for her and what you two represent. Give her something that no one else has and that she will love for a life time. Consider her style and her taste in her clothing, home décor and in general.

If she tends to like antiques in her home, then a vintage ring with a different stone could interest her. If she tends to buy new and name brand modern things she would like a princess cut diamond. Some tricks that you could do to find out the right ring for her isto do some sneaky homework.

See if she has a Pinterest account, you can publically find her by searching her name and then finding a board that is labeled ‘wedding’, ‘jewelry’ or just roam her boards for inspiration. Women pin things that they want or find pleasing. Also try carefully searching her current ring collection as well as keep an eye open to suggestions. Most women have an idea of what they want and have no problem dropping small hints. Lastly, try talking to her best friend, sibling or the person that would know more about her ring preferences. Be sure that this person can keep a secret!

Don’t put yourself in debt over a ring and purchase a ring that you can afford. It has been said that three month salary is the appropriate amount to spend on a ring. Take your time and save up for the ring. If you feel that the ring is less than what you were hoping for, always keep in mind that you can always buy her an upgraded ring further down the road.

Picking out the bride was the best decision you ever made and the engagement ring, the second. Ignore the social standards of rings and buy one that something that she will love and that comes from the heart. Good luck and happy engagement!

How To Restore The Flame When The Fire Has Burned Out In Your Marriage

Married couples can easily find themselves in a rut as the years go by. The children need to be driven to and from school and chauffeured to all of their activities, and the parents forget to take time for themselves. Sometimes, they even think that they will be able to pay more attention to their spouses after the last child leaves home, but they have many uninteresting years left to endure before that happens. These couples can take the time now to restore the flame they once had by setting aside time to try some of the suggestions in this post.

Remember What Made the Relationship Fun

A great place to start is to remember what made being with each other so much fun. The couple may be stuck in predictability with family concerns and work dominating their thoughts and time. This was not the case when they were first dating.

Couples need to ask themselves what made their early years interesting. For example, before these couples had children, they had time to take weekend trips together. They can restore the old flame they had by doing these sorts of activities again. They will not be able to be as spontaneous as they used to be, but they can begin to have the same types of experiences they had before they let family responsibilities take over.

Ask Your Spouse to Go Out on a Date

Dating is not just what people do before they get married. If they are wise, they will continue the dating process before the marriage, throughout the time they are raising their families and after they become empty-nesters. This strategy helps to put the spark back in a marriage if people take just one night a week to make the other feel special on a date. This does not require that they leave the house or spend a lot of money.

When they were courting in the beginning, sometimes, all couples did was rent a movie and pick up take-out at the nearest restaurant and then snuggled next to each other on the couch. This activity is enough to help couples remember how wonderful it felt to be near each other.

Show Your Appreciation

With people so pre-occupied with the laundry, the kids and the cooking, they may feel as if they do not have enough time in the day to make sure that their spouses feel special. People can always find a few minutes to let their spouses know that they are appreciated. This may mean that wives take a little time to write a note and place it next to their husbands’ shaving cream. A husband can pick up a little figurine and say that it reminded him of dearly beloved. These little actions let spouses know that they are thinking about one another and that they are not taken for granted.

Try New Things Together

The activities couples did in the past are helpful in returning the fire back to a marriage, but new things work to achieve the same goal as well. The adrenalin rush they received when they were first dating has not disappeared altogether. It still exists, but they will need to explore new activities that can mimic the lustful feelings they had when the relationship was new. This may mean that they begin exercising together, but it can also mean that they pursue something intellectual, such as learning a foreign language. As they work together to achieve a common goal, they will remember how it was to be a couple excited about each other.

Spice Up Things in the Bedroom

Couples are working hard, and a common complaint is that they are too tired at the end of the day to enjoy each other sexually. They may also have fallen into a routine in the bedroom that makes exploring each other not as much fun as it used to be. The fire can return in the bedroom as well if couples make it a point of finding new things to do. For example, if they find that they are in the habit of positioning themselves in the same way every time they have relations, they can seek a new manner of doing things that will make relations new again. People have many books or even videos that will help them learn something new to make their relationship interesting again.
