Nerd Bling

It's no secret that I am a huge nerd and hugely obsessed with fashion & glamour.

Today on NotCouture I discovered something that fabulously combines my two loves:
precious metal rings, bearing the periodic table icon for their material.

The Periodic Rings from INN: It's No Name.

Periodic Rings from It's No Name

Love the self-referential nerd-fashion irony. And educational too!
They are available for purchase, and I'm seriously falling in love with the silver one...especially because it's the only one I could possibly afford.

Silver (Ag) $205 USD
14K Gold (Au)$2200 USD
Platinum (Pt)$6500 USD

I'd also love to see some more exotic elements in the future: Titanium, Palladium, Copper, Tungsten (actually this wouldn't really work for this ring, as Tungsten is only safe/useful in jewelry as Tungsten Carbide, which is obviously not the pure element).

BTW, these would have been really fantastic in Chem101.
