With This Bear Tooth Ring, I Thee Wed?
We suppose weird, ahem, we mean original engagement rings are the thing du jour with all you “non-conformist” couples. Most of the accessories we see stay in the realm of design, but this bear tooth engagement ring is quite possibly more creepy. (The ones pictured are done in brass, but we were sure there was a real tooth version up earlier. Guess it sold out!) The inspiration behind the ring, by Etsy designer Blood Milk, is actually quite romantic. It was created out of a Grimm fairy tale in which Snow White shows kindness to a bear (who is really an imprisoned prince). After the spell is broken, the prince goes on to marry Snow White, so the ring symbolizes her love for the man even in his bear form. Which might as well just be a modern translation where the bear is played by the Joaquin Phoenixes of the world. What do you think of this animal tooth-inspired engagement ring? Too creepy? Or sweet in principle? [Etsy]
