Words have a way of sticking with you long after they’ve been said, with some phrases so endearing that they ought to memorialized as a tangible memory. Japanese startup Encode Ring is doing just that by transmitting spoken three-second phrases into sound waves that are then transformed into a custom-crafted metal ring.
The sound waves will appear different for each person depending on the words said and the inflection of their voice; this ensures that each ring is wholly unique and meaningful for its intended recipient. It features an abstract shape—complete with high peaks and low valleys—but its symbolism will always remind the wearer of the special words spoken. It’s the perfect way to say “I love you” in an exquisitely unconventional way.
Encode’s jewelry is available in multiple metals, from stainless steel all the way to high-end platinum. You can visit the website now to record your message and see how it’d look in a ring setting.
