Well, here's a darling idea if there were one. Best not to consider the implications of making a low-fidelity promise of eternal love, of course. But, really, just darling:
Working with a jeweller and the vinyl record manufacturer Dubstudios, I created this engagement ring for my partner Shelina. The ring has a 20 second recorded message (my proposal) etched onto it's surface and can be played back with a miniature record player.
"Shelina, I'll love you forever! Marry me! Shelina, I'll love you forever. Marry me!"
100 lbf/in² of pressure was required to cut the silver ring, using a vibrating diamond stylus. The ring is also a homage to Thomas Edison who made the first sound recording machine - the phonograph in 1877. Using the ring, I proposed to Shelina in a hot air balloon over Bristol in 2005. We've since got married and had 2 children Maya and Nico.
