Star Wars-Inspired Engagement Rings & Wedding Bands
If you’re getting engaged and you and your fiancé-to-be have a shared affection for all things Star Wars, you’ll be pleased to know that a surprising number of wedding jewelry designers are creating engagement ring and wedding band styles with your Star Warsian tastes in mind. For some designers, the connection is inadvertent (yet no less apropos), favoring rough stones that could hail from some extra-planetary floor, materials that careen through space or fossilized inlay (fossils as in dinosaurs, yes). Others have taken a range of inspiration points—droid hardware, R2’s cobalt blue panels, Princess Leia’s iconic side buns, famous battle scenes, memorable quotes—and fashioned them into geek chic metal monuments to both the movie and your love. Diamonds and sapphires abound, as do the options for men. May the force be with you as you shop!Continue to 2 of 13 below.
