True love is getting the person you’re with the absolute perfect gift — even if it may not make sense to anyone but you two. Take the lucky lass that received this amazing 20-sided die engagement ring. A poster on Off Beat Bride explained that she made the ring after finding a mini metal polyhedral (that’s 20-sided) dice set. She and her girlfriend both love “Dungeons and Dragons.” “With advice from a friend in jewelry design school, I researched ring settings and doodled designs. I initially wanted to make the ring myself by buying a setting and putting the die in it. This was slightly insane. I quickly realized that if I wanted this done right, I’d need to take it to a professional.”
So she did. And after three months she presented the ring to her girlfriend, who of course said yes. You don’t turn down a 20-sided die ring. [Off Beat Bride]

But a few months back, I found myself in this very scenario, sitting in a room full of nerds. One of three girls in the whole place—and the only one that looked like she’d been out of her apartment in the past three months—I realized that, by default, I was an absolute babe. Whoa, I thought to myself. I am the Megan Fox of Dungeons & Dragons right now.
