Nightmare Break & Mirage Split Inspired Wedding Rings
Takayas continues to be inspired by the themes of Kingdom Hearts, adding a few more ring designs to his wedding collection. Two of the latest design additions were inspired by Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. Takayas loves the concept of the Nightmare Break and Mirage Split reality shift keyblades, how they bring Riku and Sora together from their separate dream worlds to form an enormous combined keyblade that allows them defeat their most difficult enemies and obstacles together.
Even though the wielders of these reality shift keyblades are friends, not romantic partners, this concept of a strong bond that conquers all translates perfectly to a pair of wedding bands: one in white gold to represent Riku's Mirage Split keyblade, and the other in yellow gold to represent Sora's Nightmare Break (aka Nightmare's End) keyblade.
The two individual keyblades are nearly identical but, aside from the color difference, you'll notice that the design of the handle guard is different for each keyblade: the design of the Nightmare Break's guard points up, while the Mirage Split's guard design points down. Takayas used this same design tactic to differentiate between the two rings, hugging each keyblade's half-heart and stained glass "teeth" with their respective guard design.
These rings were designed to represent a strong bond between two people, making them ideal for wedding rings or even friendship rings. Of course, if made in the same size, these two rings will fit together to form a "combined keyblade" ring so, it's understandable if you simply want to order both for yourself!
Another recent addition to our Kingdom Hearts wedding collection is a men's version of the Oathkeeper wedding ring. Takayas increased the proportions of the ladies' ring to fit a man's finger, changed it to an all-white design, and switched out the sparkling white accent diamonds for the more masculine look of black diamonds. (Of course, we do know some men love a little sparkle so, this could be made with white diamonds too.)
What do you think, could you see you and your partner wielding these matching Oathkeeper wedding bands? Or is the Nightmare Break & Mirage Split combination more your style?
