Watch the video coverage for the 'Anti-Cheating Ring'
New wedding ring fingers cheaters
Married folk keen for some extra-marital activities have one more
stumbling block to contend with now, thanks to a new ‘anti-cheating
ring’ that imprints a potent statement on its wearer.
Engravings are common with bridal jewellery. From the couple’s names to Latin phrases to favourite movie quotes, jewellers aren’t surprised by many wedding ring engraving requests any more. A new wedding ring currently receiving a lot of media attention however, actually engraves a rather simple statement on the finger of the person wearing it: ‘I’m Married’.
Looking like a simple blank titanium ring from the outside, the inner band features a thick engraving of the matrimony message, so that when the wearer removes the ring, the message remains on the reddened finger. The idea is that if the wearer removes the ring, then the imprint will deter potential suitors who have a conscience, and serve as a reminder to the wearer of their matrimonial contract.
Colin Hart, owner of online store TheCheeky.com, told JCK that he designed the ring around the time Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tiger Woods, and Dominique Strauss-Kahn were getting in hot water over their love lives.
“I was also choosing a ring that week so I came up with this idea for my wedding ring,” he said.
Hart said he had sold more than a dozen of the rings already, selling at $550, which have since been featured on primetime CNN talk show Piers Morgan Tonight (video below).
