A company has launched a new kind of engraved wedding band, with a message that's somewhat different to the normal terms of endearment, dailymail.co.uk reports.
The meaning behind a wedding ring, significantly represented by a circle with no end, is that of infinite love. That, plus trust is said to be the basis for a happy marriage. It's a sad indictment of modern society, therefore, that a company has found the gap in the market for the 'Anti-Cheating Ring'.
TheCheeky.com, a purveyor of novelty gifts, is selling the band which had been negatively engraved on the inside with the words: 'I'm married'. The precision engraving effectively brands the wearer's finger with the words reading the right way round, thus if a ring is removed, their marital status will still be evident.
Though offered as a spoof, the ring is made from Titanium and priced at £352, huffingtonpost.co.uk reports. Ironically it comes complete with a lifetime guarantee.
The tongue-in-cheek description explains that the inspiration behind the creation of the ring were famous adulterers including Tiger Woods and Arnold Schwarzenegger, designed especially for 'people intent on cheating'.
"The negative engraving on the inside means that when you are in [a club] and an attractive woman or man comes along to chat, slipping your wedding ring off is not an option," the description comically continues.
