A beautiful R2-D2-themed engagement ring celebrates love bigger than a galaxy far, far away.
There are few things in this world more satisfying than two people who fit together finding each other. We're a big fan of geek love (the book too, but that's a different kind of geek); firstly, because it's lovely, and secondly, because tend to about how they show their love.
Tattooists Joe and Emily share a mutual love for the original Star Wars films — and so, when it came to personalising the ring with which he proposed, Joe drew his inspiration from the series' smart little droid. He designed it himself and called upon custom jewellery designer Paul Bierker, of Paul Michael Design, to put it together.
As you can see, the top of the ring, featuring a brilliant-cut diamond and baguette-cut sapphires, references the top of R2's head. The band, featuring a brilliant-cut diamond and more sapphire baguettes on either side of the main setting, has been designed to resemble the droid's legs.
Joe proposed to Emily at the tattoo parlour where they both met. You can watch the incredibly sweet video and see more pictures here.
