Snow Globe Rings Let You Give Winter The Finger
How do snow globes fit in today's digital world? By fitting on your digit, of course. Snow Globe Rings from Toumei of Japan encase the iconic symbols of the world's five most famous cities in miniature spherical wearable snow globes.
Snow Globe Rings were conceived via a collaboration between Lil Design Lab and Aquvii. The polished brass rings are topped by 1.9 cm (3/4”) diameter, crystal clear acrylic plastic globes that rain snow (can we say that?) onto gold-toned symbols of Egypt, Berlin, London, New York City, and Paris.
These rich and exotic locales are represented by The Pyramids, the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, and a bear... the last being the heraldic beast that takes pride of place on Berlin's traditional coat of arms.
Toumei has priced these Snow Globe Rings at 3,200 yen (about $32) each. That's not too much ask for the right to unleash winter's wrath on the premium travel destination of your choice, now is it?
