Men often get the short end of the stick as far as wedding rings go. So when someone thinks outside the box, we can?€?t help but hand??it to them.
Reddit user??Im_High_Tech??did just that by having his wife?€?s actual fingerprint etched onto his wedding band.
In an accompanying thread, he revealed that he was inspired a similar ring he had seen and ?€?thought it would be great to make my wedding band more unique than stuff you buy at the store.?€?

But creating this declaration of undying commitment, which ran him just shy of $1,000,??turned out to be quite a labor of love ?€? for both parties involved. He wrote that his partner had to ?€?dip her thumb into ink like 70 times to get the perfect fingerprint?€? and he ?€?had to photoshop the crap out of it because apparently on a microscopic level, a fingerprint is very messy.?€?
But the result, this oh-so personal band, appears to have been worth it. ?€?This will also be my prized possession,?€? he wrote in response to one of the comments on the ring.
Seth Rosen, CEO and co-founder of Custom Made, where the ring was designed and created, told HuffPost they get a range of requests for personalized jewelry, from fingerprints (which he said has seen an uptick since this one showed up on Reddit) to materials sourced by the couple themselves.
?€?Some pieces are novel because they incorporate something very personal,?€? he said. ?€?Like the pendant we created from a customer?€?s drawing of an olive branch growing from a broken heart:?€?
Rosen said something like the fingerprint ring would cost between $300-$350 in sterling silver all the way up to $900-$1,200 for a heavier gold.
Our minds are reeling with the print-abilities.
