The Reality Check Wedding Ring by Josien Pieters

Josien Pieters, a designer from the Netherlands, has brought reality to the wedding ring. The Reality Check Wedding Ring, featured in the gallery, has three different forms, each representing stages of a relationship.

The Reality Check Wedding Ring begins with a butterfly, which is romantic and flighty and encapsulates the feelings surrounding an engagement. Next is the cage, a not-so-optimistic view of what it's like to actually be married. Finally, Pieters has created a ring for divorce: pliers, which metaphorically pry you out of the cage and out of your now-defunct relationship.

The Reality Check Wedding Ring may not be a good idea for a budding romance, but jaded divorcees ought to get a kick out of it.
