It’s a risky proposition getting married these days. The divorce rate in America is still hovering around 50%, and even higher for second or third marriages. It’s a daunting prospect to commit yourself to another person in the face of those odds. What if you’re rushing into it? What if your partner goes batshit crazy? What if it’s all an elaborate scheme to kill you for your life insurance money? As somebody chugging toward his tenth wedding anniversary (and fourteen years together), I say pish-posh to all that! If you’re going to take the plunge, go big or go home. What could be more romantic than entwining your fates, not just till death do you part, but throughout all of time and space?
That’s the message you can send with a wedding ring crafted in the image of Doctor Who‘s iconic TARDIS police box. Yes, Tumblr user “Pathetic Peripatetic” has created a ring fashioned in the likeness of The Doctor’s sweet ride, and you can purchase one of your very own to tell that special person in your life that you want him/her to be your Companion for life. Okay, so he doesn’t actually mention Doctor Who in his post, but we all know anyone who’s buying a “Police Box” ring is doing it because they have a fondness for cheeky immortal time travelers. Here’s a description of the ring, and you can see a picture below:
[It’s] a Police Box based ring with a 1CT Princess Cut center stone. The three round stones is the Police Box sign, the two sets of four baguettes symbolize the windows, and a small princess cut below that to symbolize the instructions found on the front of the Police Box.
The odds of ever running into anybody with the same ring is practically nil, you’ll always have an interesting conversation piece, and let’s face it: if you propose to your partner with a TARDIS ring and they say yes, you really ought to marry them for that fact alone.
