A unique piece of jewelery uses simple technology to create projections.

When creative consultant Luke Jerram decided to propose to Shelina Nanji, he gave her a unique ring that he designed in collaboration with a local jeweler. In dark environments, small light sources like candlelight or LEDs can be made to pass through the ring to project a series of romantic portraits of the couple.  The transparent stone is cleverly used to magnify the miniature slides.  Desired images can be be wedged inside a small slot on the wedding ring, and swapped out when desired.   Jerram attributes project inspiration to Stanhopes, 19th century novelty collectibles, that also used miniature lenses for owners to peer through.
