Doctor Who thing: elegant Gallifreyan design rings

I prefer fannish stuff that’s like a secet code. A tee, for instance, that doesn’t blare a logo but sports a simple, elegant design that no one who isn’t in the know will see as a geek thing but that those who are clued in will appreciate. So I adore the designs by etsy jeweler FANaticCreations, who engraves tungsten rings with beautiful geeky symbols. Such as this one, of Gallifreyan writing:

dwring1

And this one, with the seal of Omega:

dwring2

And this one, in a TARDIS design:

dwring3

Artist Haylee Barber has lots more (including in other fandoms). Go check ’em out.

Yes, I very much agree; I don’t want a thing that says to the entire world “I am a fan of Programme X”, I want something that’s attractive in itself and that other fans may recognise. I want to find fellow fans, not proclaim an allegiance.

These are marvelous. I’m with you on the subject too. Design has to stand on its own merits. I think that’s why people who create successful logos are sought after and can command big bucks. The Coca-Cola logo isn’t iconic because it’s Coke, but because it’s been great to look at for decades.

These look very nice. The first one reminds me…

I’ve recently started working in an office in the Empire State Building, and everywhere you look — the walls, the ceilings, the elevator floors — are these beautiful deco designs that make it look like the building is written over in secret Gallifreyan code. Fun to contemplate on those long elevator rides up.
