You don’t have to look very hard in the world to see how Geek Culture has gone from being a fringe subculture to a full blown phenomenon, especially with all of the Geek Jewelry available now. By all observations, there are more people attending comic book conventions dressed up in cosplay than ever and just as with every other subculture, many different services and merchants have begun tailoring their products to meet the needs of the gamer and geek demographics. At Valeria Fine Jewelry, we are keenly aware of the latest trends as we make what people want, but can't find at a retail store, and we saw the Geek Jewelry wave coming early. Because of this, we created a suite of jewelry based on the geek culture.
What is interesting is how fine jewelers who would have thumbed there noses at a Batman Ring are now making Geek Jewelry. At the request of customers, an increasing number of high-end jewelry designers are taking the symbols and emblems from film and games and turning them into beautiful and sometimes quite ornate jewelry. From Batman to WOW to Harry Potter, fashion statement jewelry and Geek Jewelry would have never been the same with the advent of CAD.
As you can see, it is possible to be inventive and creative with the use of emblems from their customer's favorite games and movies. The aesthetics of classical jewelry design seem to combine well with the adapted fantasy themes and graphic art seen in of gamer culture.
The most interesting thing I’ve found about lovers of Geek Jewelry is how generally receptive customers have proven to be to the use of CAD/CAM renderings in advertising and presenting designs. Perhaps this is related to gamer culture’s being accustomed to looking at computer graphics.
Whatever it is, I am happy to create custom Geek Jewelry, whether it be a batman wedding ring, World of Warcraft HORDE Engagement Ring, or Dr Who TARDIS Pendant.
