VAL + RACHEL: A Custom Masters of the Universe Ring

he-manBy the power of Grayskull…this ring is awesome! Ok, had to say it – but If you’re a baby of the 80’s then you know what we’re talking about. The power sword, if you recall, was what Prince Adam would raise to turn into He-Man (admit it, you remember).

Green Lake Jewelry Works is really only one of a handful of places in the world where a single, one of a kind ring can be crafted to incorporate just about anything you can dream up – even He-Man’s power sword. It’s the key inspiration for this custom engagement ring:

Custom cast 14k gold mounting with a round brilliant cut center diamond. Both sides of the ring are adorned with small icons symbolizing different stages in the couple’s time together.


It will come as no surprise that Val is comic book writer and artist, not to mention a He-Man aficionado. It was actually on where he and Rachel first met. Over a decade later, Val proposed at Power Con, an annual Masters of the Universe enthusiast’s event he organizes.

Um, yeah - she loves it!

But there’s more to this proposal than just being at Power Con – Val quizzes his bride-to-be on all the special moments in their relationship that led them to this point, then reveals they’ve all been included into the ring!  Huge thanks to this couple for sharing with us this special event. You can read his full story on the Power Con site, and see the whole proposal here:
