An actually innocent collaboration between The Pokémon Company and a jeweler creates a series of engagement rings for fans. Of the mostly pretty rings, we particularly noticed a very ambiguous design, which we cannot withhold from you.
How has no one from the Pokémon Company noticed?
Whether plush toys, figures, or clothing – as Pokémon fans you will always new products with which you can express your love for the video game series. For the wedding season, The Pokémon Company has come up with some chic designs for engagement rings that mostly rather discreet fail.
For example, there is a simple gold ring with a small Pikachu head in the middle and another ring that consists of two Pikachu tails that meet with a small diamond in the middle.
Between these simple models, a ring stands out – and that not because you would like this for an application. The idea was to make a diamond for Pikachus head by modeling the mascot’s ears with gold on top. Unfortunately, the concept doesn’t quite work out.
At least with this shape of the ears we have to think of something other than a small Pikachu:
The ambiguous engagement ring costs the equivalent over 3,000 euros, because it consists of 18 carat gold and a real diamond. Similar prices apply to the rest of the Pokémon rings.
Whether as a fashion statement, as a joke or actually for a marriage proposal: if you are interested in ordering one, you will find the entire range on the Japanese side of the Poké-Center. The gold rings are even, thematically fitting, in one pretty pokéball box shipped.
