Leica Rings Made Of Precious Metal Still Cheaper Than Real Thing

The wedding band is a time-honoured tradition since marketers first convinced us we needed them in the late 1940s. Nowadays, they’re ubiquitous and for the most part undifferentiated.

Not these wedding rings created for Japanese photographer couple, whose jewellery-maker friend created these custom bands based on the Leica 50mm Summilux lens’ focusing and aperture rings – his and hers, respectively. And it’s held together by a mini matching Leica M3 ringholder.

I wish them the best but if things ever go awry, I wouldn’t mind finding the set at a pawn shop. [Tokyo Camera Style via PetaPixel]
