Guys, if you want to avoid any sense of dissatisfaction when the time comes for you to pick out a wedding ring, I suggest not showing this post to your partner. Whether it’s because of characters such as Superman or because of some other reason, we do have a fascination for meteorites. Now and then, we even have real-life encounters with them.

Well, maybe not firsthand encounters for most of us, but vicarious experiences can be almost as fun. Some time ago, I found myself drooling over a meteorite sword. Not just anyone’s sword, mind you. It’s Terry Prachett‘s sword. As they say, though, make love, not war; and what is a sword if not an instrument of war? Why not go the opposite way and create something that emanates peace and love? How about a wedding ring made of meteorite? ((Then again, a wedding ring might very well be the harbinger of war.))

DIY wedding ring. He posted his work on Reddit, starting with this huge piece of rock, which obviously needed some sawing and hacking.
