In search of an engagement or wedding ring for the car enthusiast in your life? Scrap Car Comparison, a UK-based service that helps users scrap or sell their damaged cars, has partnered with engagement jeweler Edward Fleming to create custom-designed rings inspired by the recipient’s favorite car.
“Whether your wife or husband to-be have had to scrap or say goodbye to a beloved vehicle, or they just have a soft spot for a particular car model, our new service aims to pair romance with a ring reminiscent of the revving of our favorite engine,” Scrap Car Comparison writes on its website.
Fleming, the jeweler, will work with customers to create a bespoke ring that reflects the design elements of their significant other’s favorite car.
“For years, materials from the catalytic converters found in scrapped car exhausts have been recycled and used in standard wedding and engagement rings,” the company continues. “However, our new service aims to take things one step further, with bespoke designs mirroring the aesthetics of any motor.
To illustrate the design possibilities, Scrap Car Comparison has shared three examples inspired by a Mini Cooper, Lamborghini Huracan and a Ford Fiesta.
The Mini Cooper ring wears red, white and blue stones with union jack flag engravings around the band and the diamond setting was made to look like a Minilight alloy wheel. A personalized number plate is engraved on the inner band.
Inspired by the Lamborghini Huracan, this bright yellow ring houses the central diamond in a plate designed to look like a Huracan exhaust tip.
And the bright blue Ford Fiesta ring that curves around the finger is set with diamonds that are based on the 2021 Fiesta headlights.
