Takayas Custom Jewelry is at it again! These guys really know how to make a geek happy, especially when it comes to jewelry. For they have just announced a sequel to their original Legend Of Zelda-themed ring collection with a new set that’s based on the three Spiritual Stones from the Ocarina of Time: Kokiri’s Emerald, Goron’s Ruby, and Zora’s Sapphire. Check out their awesome collection after the break:
When Rachel couldn’t decide between a Dragon Ball ring and Zelda ring for an anniversary present, Takayas Custom Jewelry was enthusiastic at the prospect of designing a custom band that found a way to meld both her husband’s favorite anime show and Nintendo video game. And thus created was a ring to rule all rings – the Dragon Ball and Legend of Zelda Hybrid ring!
Rachel decided she wanted ring to have the Dragon Ball elements on one half of the band, the Zelda elements on the other half, and the two designs to merge in the middle as a hybrid nod to each series. Check out how Takayas was able to meld the two properties together flawlessly after the break:
Welcome back to our Geek Monthly Mystery Box subscription round up! For anyone new to this concept, mystery subscription boxes are mail order boxes filled with “stuff” that you pay for on a monthly basis. The catch is that you have no idea what is going to be in the box month-to-month. You have to go on faith that what is being delivered, will match the value of the monthly subscription fee.
And if you’ve been following Gabbing Geek for a while, then you’ll know we did a 22 box review: Mystery Geek Box Monthly Subscriptions: The Good, The Bad, and The Geeky not too long ago. But since that post, the Geek Mystery Box market has added a few more contenders to the race!
Want to know how the new additions stack up agains the old trusties? Read on!

Mystery box subscriptions are all the craze these days. You know what I’m talking about, right? Mystery subscription boxes are mail order boxes filled with stuff that you pay for on a monthly basis. The catch is that you have no idea what is going to be in the box month-to-month. You have to go on faith that what is being delivered, will match the value of what you’re paying for the monthly subscription. And depending on what you subscribe to, you can open your mystery box and it may be filled beyond the value of your monthly fee, or you may come up short. It’s a gamble. And with a million different subscription themes out there; boxes for dogs, for foodies, for grooming, for geeks, etc, etc. You have to be sure you know what you’re getting into. Curious? Read on.
