Although it might not look like much in comparison to a dazzling diamond ring, the true ring value of the BTC Ring is hidden away from plain sight.

The BTC Ring by Seb Neumayer is a 3D-printed creation that can be made from any material, which could either make it quite cost-friendly or extremely expensive to manufacture. Rather than putting money down on expensive gold bands and diamonds, the value of this ring lies in a QR code that links to a Bitcoin Blockchain or a special message, in the same way that words can be engraved on a piece of jewelry.

As well as there being huge sentimental value in creating a 3D-printed ring for a loved one, the BTC ring also causes people to rethink wealth when its value is encrypted.
