When Michael Moragne decided to propose to his girlfriend Amy, he wanted to give her a ring that reflected not just their love, but also their shared love of Battlestar Galactica. Using the central diamond and gold from his grandmother's engagement ring, Moragne had a new ring made — one with Cylons hiding on the band.

Moragne worked with a jewelry designer to create the ring, tweaking the design during the process to get the perfect pair of Toasters. There is even a small ruby on each side to represent the sweeping red eye. The result is fantastic, and far less painful than a pair of matching wing and circle tattoos.
