Batman Engagement Ring: If Batman Ever Proposes to Catwoman

Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle have been dancing around their relationship for as long as I can remember. I think it’s about time that Batman got down on one knee and asked Catwoman for her hand in marriage. Sure, there was that time when Catwoman gave up her life of crime and married Batman back in 1955, but that took place in an alternate reality on “Earth-Two,” so that doesn’t really count.

Seriously, put a ring on it, Bats. I’ve even already picked one out for you.

Among their various wares, Canadian jewelry shop Geeky Rings sells this sweet Batman-inspired engagement ring. This particular ring is made of gold with a bunch of bats flying around the band and holding up a ruby red gemstone at its center. The ring can be special ordered in other gemstone colors, as well as in white or a rose gold and silver combo, and an 18K gold version. If you’re looking for something that captures the “dark” aspect of The Dark Knight even better, they also sell a murdered-out black version.

Prices for the Batman engagement ring start around $550 and go up to $930 depending on the materials used. That’s chump change for the Wayne family, so you’ve got no excuse, Bruce.

Now, I wonder if this is the ring that Peter Parker gave Mary Jane back when they got married in the 1980s.

You Can’t Pay the Iron Price for These Incredible Game of Thrones Pens

If you’re a Game of Thrones fan who loves to write notes and send them by raven, then Italian writing instrument maker Montegrappa has just the perfect pen for you. It is called the Winter is Here edition.

The pen has an extremely intricate exterior that makes it a work of art, carved from pearlized great celluloid and “enveloped by a masterful study in the ancient art of lost wax casting.” It is a beauty that’s for sure.

The Night King and a White Walker are engraved on the pen’s barrel with ice-blue apatite crystals for eyes and on the pen’s cap, and the ice dragon Viserion is carved in precious metal, over a ring of blue-crystalline hand-glazed flames. The dragon wraps around the pen cap and the head with the tongue of ice is the pocket clip.

It is available in your choice of fountain or rollerball, and in sterling silver or solid 18K gold. The silver model is limited to 300 units, while the 18K gold has an ultra limited run of just 7 units.

These pens aren’t cheap, mind you. The sterling silver version is €4,500 (~$5,080 USD) a pop for the fountain and €4,050 (~$5,570 USD) for the rollerball. The gold one will cost you €48,000 (~$54,270 USD) for the fountain, or €51,000 (~$57,680 USD) for the rollerball.

Tiffany & Co. Building Blocks: Like LEGO for Rick Kids

You know Tiffany & Co? They’re the ones that make all the expensive jewelry and accessories for rich people. I’m pretty sure that you and I aren’t even allowed to utter their name aloud unless our bank account hits a certain threshold. Well, now they are getting into the rich spoiled brat market with Tiffany sterling silver building blocks. Think of them as luxury LEGO.

These deluxe building blocks are not actually toys. We think. They look like the toy bricks we all know and love, but instead of round studs, these ones have square studs and are made of sterling silver and American walnut.

Naturally, they are also expensive. They’re priced at $1,650 for a set of 10 bricks. The 10 pieces include three 2 by 2 blocks (0.62” square), three 2 by 3 blocks (0.93 x 0.62”), three 2 by 5 blocks (1.55 x 0.62”), all in sterling silver and american walnut wood. The last brick is a single 2 by 5 block (1.55 x 0.62”) in all sterling silver.

They are numbered and lettered and you can personalize them with an engraving of up to three letters as well. That costs an extra $25 ,which is nothing to anyone who is buying sterling silver LEGO blocks. Damn rich kids and their gleaming silver structures!
