Space Invaders Pixel Ring: Way Better Than a Crummy Diamond

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  October 28, 2011


If you’re a lover of classic video games, then you’ll probably dig this retro-style ring, made to look like a Space Invader. What I really love about it is that it’s not just a solid shape, but it actually looks like its made up of pixels.

Each one is handmade by Virginie Millefiori, who creates all sorts of cool jewelry, including an entire collection of Invaders-inspired wares. In this particular case, the ring is made from gold-plated brass, then hand-enameled in white to create the pixel effect.

While the ring in the picture above is clearly a different (non-pixellated) Invader, I couldn’t resist posting a picture of a cute girl rockin’ an awesome Space Invaders ring, and showing it off for the camera.  This particular ring sells for $50 (USD) over on Etsy, and it would look great along with a matching pendant, don’t you think? You can also order them in silver-plate or different shades of enamel on request.
