Photographer Wedding Rings Resemble Leica Camera Parts
May 31st, 2011
When geeks get married, they start to look for different types of wedding rings than the normal gold rings that most people wear. The more specialized the geekiness of the couple, the more specialized the design of the rings tends to be. When a couple of photographers got married in Japan, they had a pal that creates jewelry make them some interesting rings.
The rings were modeled after parts off the Leica 50mm Summilux lens. The groom’s ring was the focusing ring, and the bride’s was the aperture ring. The rings aren’t the only cool things the jewelry making friend whipped up though.
He also constructed a very realistic looking metal Leica camera that is used to hold the rings. The guy’s ring slips over the bottom of the faux lens, and the woman’s on the top. This is really cool and I bet the jewelry maker could sell these things if he was so inclined.
