La Fierte (pride) - For Men by tidalkraken La Fierte (pride) - For Men by tidalkraken
The men's version of La Fierte. Really, both designs are pretty much unisex, so I'm just classifying them as men's / women's rings for the sake of simplicity with this set.

Modeled in Maya.
Rendered in Blender Cycles.

I LOVE IT!

Are you planning on having these mass produced? If yes, how much do you think they'll run for?

At the moment mass production hasn't been considered and likely won't. Small scale production, however, is a possibility because I happen to have contacts in the jewelry world that can get these made for under wholesale cost.

Unfortunately that also means that one ring could cost anywhere between 1400$ to 2500$ due to materials.

I can't decide which I like more. The clouds were nice, but so are the lightening bolts. They both work pretty well.

It's nice seeing a good simplistic (for lack of a better word) men's ring. My experience with rings comes entirely from trying to order a class ring, and wondering why they were all so huge. "Doing more with less" is what I think I'm looking for.

Also, knowing they both could go either way clears things up a little. I thought the other version looked a bit like a woman's ring, but I wasn't quite sure. The "SO MUCH WANT" said otherwise.

I'd echo the throwing money at you, but even brass and glass gems would make me double check my balance before ordering. Maybe someday....

I'm very glad that you like the designs. With the initial feedback I was getting on La Fierte, I was worried I'd strayed too far off the beaten path. The goal is still to make jewelry that is reminiscent of the show/fandom but also inconspicuous to someone who has never seen/heard of it.

One of my general design rules is that rounded curves are more feminine, and sharp angles are more masculine. Furthermore, given how much ambiguity the fandom loves to attach to RBD, and the nature of military rings, it was difficult for me to make something that was purely feminine or purely masculine. I hope I found a happy balance between the two.
