Hello Kitty Wedding Ring

It would seem that I would be thanking Sanrio for not creating these until after I was already married, but Hello Kitty Hell doesn’t make something like this simply disappear due to timing. While Hello Kitty wedding rings weren’t around when my wife and I got married, their appearance so close to our 10th anniversary has my wife trying to convince me that this is exactly what we need to celebrate the occasion:

Hello Kitty wedding ring

Hello Kitty wedding men's ring

Hello Kitty wedding ladies' ring

Hello Kitty wedding ring pair

It would be bad enough if I had to give her a Hello Kitty wedding ring, but it’s even worse that they come in a matching pair with Hello Kitty engraved on the inside meaning that I would also have to wear a Hello Kitty wedding ring. Sanrio, in their marketing genius, have set this up as a no win situation for any man living in Hello Kitty Hell. While the bride’s ring has Hello Kitty prominently on the outside, Hello Kitty is hidden on the inner circle of the ring on the groom’s ring — apparently even they realized the backlash if they had tried to place Hello Kitty’s face on the outside, but this strategic placement gives the bride negotiating room to argue that it is not nearly as bad as it could have been.

In reality, having Hello Kitty on the inside isn’t any better. Just the thought that I am somehow defacto married to Hello Kitty as well makes my heart seize up and gives my stomach that wonderful nauseating feeling you get before you have to run to the toilet to vomit.

Of course, the wedding rings don’t come cheap when Hello Kitty lends her face to them. The platinum Hello Kitty wedding rings run $1,640 (189,000 Yen) with the bride’s ring getting two minuscule diamond chips (0.02ct ) added to either side of Hello Kitty’s face. I’m actually surprised that they are Pepto Bismol pink.

So once again the Hello Kitty quandary arises. If I don’t get the rings, I will have to get something Hello Kitty that could be just as awful (or even worse) to placate not getting them. Either way I lose and Hello Kitty wins which is almost always the case in Hello Kitty Hell…

  1. In centuries to come, after the empires of today have turned to dust, will those in the future wonder what the religious significance of Hello Kitty was?

    Wii they see the plethora of HK items all over the world as more powerful that Jesus, Mohammed, Elvis or Buddah?

    Chilling thought. But it could happen.

  2. Too late – shown it to the boyfriend, these are the rings we are going to have. I’m not kidding.

    Is it ok if I don’t wear the ring, he says. No its not!

  3. Yeah, well, I finally get to go to Japan and what does my sister demand that we see? Freaking Puroland! I walked in there under extreme duress and still have PTSD about it. It looks like an acid trip gone horribly wrong. I also got my butt pinched by Dear Daniel. Hello Kitty Hell is a dark place in my soul and it looks like Puroland to me.

    Where is the twleve step program for Kitty maniacs? ISn’t there some sort of anti-abuse law to protect us from this?

    I will do everything in my power to save my brother-in-law from those rings. He is too good a man to have to suffer through such ignominy.

  5. Adorable for me,but I’d never expect my husband-to-be to wear one. If there is a guy out there engaged to a woman who DOES expect him to wear it – run like hell or it will just be your own self inflicted Hello Kitty Hell til death do you part.

  6. Too bad you have to buy them as a pair. I like the men’s ring and $800 isnt that steep for a nice platinum band. Im not even a fan but I like the idea of a secret hello kitty on the inside of my ring =^.^=

  7. I think you should get the HK one for your wifeand have one made for you with your wifes silouhette on the inside. That way you can tell your wife that while she LOVES HK you LOVE her πŸ˜‰

    Which you obviously do because,…. wow….. that’s a lot of pink and fuzzy kitten you have to deal with.

    I’m shocked you haven’t swung the other way and taken to wearing all black leather to balance out your masculinity.

    If you ever get to LA I”ll buy you a drink.

  9. Love these!!! But there is no way in hell I would ever let my husband wear that ring, I mean, the man should have SOME amount of pride. I would love to get the women’s ring as my right hand ring though….

  10. My boyfriend asked me if I wanted these to be our wedding rings. You have no idea how repulsed I was at the idea of hk forever engraved on our wedding rings. I appreciate his effort to please me though.

  11. Love the rings, but I would not make my husband to be wear one…besides Hello Kitty is just for me anyway…he should have his own thing going on…

  12. Help!!! We have been looking to buy these online, but to no avail! Does anybody have a website where we can buy them? We are of course having a HK wedding, and we need these rings!!!

  13. I think the hello kitty wedding rings are sooo pretty
    when i get married im going make my husband were it and if he doesn t want to then i wont marry him lol jk i’ll just make him wear it . πŸ˜€

  14. I like them; I think they’re cute. But as a wedding ring? O.o; I could never. I just feel marriage is too sacred for that. But that’s just me. If anyone else wants to use ’em, okay…

  15. I feel for you bro, my lady would freak if she knew about the rings. we are talking about getting married soon but cant save any money, WHY….. BECAUSE OF THE DAMN CAT!!!!!!! HELP

  16. uhhhm…..
    okay
    hello kitty is cute on me….
    but not on a guy
    no way
    never ever force a guy to be humiliated like that
    i mean
    there is definately a limit….
    o_O

  17. just email sanrio about it, i’m sure they can help you with finding them.

    my fiancee actually suggested a hello kitty wedding ^_^ i’m so lucky heehee

  18. Fiancee: OMG isn’t that sooo cute?
    Me: What?
    Fiancee: These Hello Kitty wedding bands!
    Me: ????????
    Fiancee: Wouldn’t the be so original?!?!
    Me: No… no they wouldn’t…

    (Being totally ignored)

    Fiancee: Look they are under $2000 dollars!!!!!
    Me: ???????
    Fiancee: I’m gonna see if they would take a down payment.

    Me: *Grabs a knife and goes to cut his ring finger off.*
    Fiancee: Oh quit being so dramatic, cutting your finger off won’t stop us from getting married, with these rings.
    Me: No that isn’t it, my fingers swell- a lot- and I have to get rings cut off or I’ll loose my finger. I guess in this scenario it’ll be me or the ring and I’m gonna lose out…. why wait for the rush?

  19. alright people.

    As this guy stated, DO NOT ask were to get these items at. He won’t tell you, since he most likely gets these in e-mails.

    And there are people with “I love HK” and Sanrio” little screenames, why would they do that sicne this is HK HELL!
    Lord.

  20. Actually it was my husband to be that sent this link to me and it was his idea I give these a thought…seeing how “THE RING” as in LOR the ring is twice the price as these..So I do know at least 1 guy that will ware this ring. who is ever going to know the mans ring has hello kitty on the inside but you and your wife?? Well theres the person that finds it on the bars bathroom floor when you take it off to hide the fact your married!!! Not knocking you men but after hours cleaning I do tend to find rings and all sort of neat things you men try to hide in bars from women.

  21. These ARE really cute ass rings. IΒ΄ll get them no matter what my husband says heΒ΄s gonna wear it and like it

  22. that ring is already out on the web so those little rings r easy to find find a new one dum*** !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! there are alot more 2 choose from and if my husban ever give that 2 me i would yell + it haz no big dimonds my husban makes 5 million a year i would never accept that crap πŸ™ !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. I’ve got to befriend your wife! Where do you find all this stuff???? My own daughter has outgrown Hello Kitty, but I haven’t! πŸ™‚

  24. OMG! Too bad you posted this the day AFTER I got married. I guess you saved my husband. Though, he is a total sport (not to be confused with a push over, by any means) and would wear this. It would be nice to wear as a right hand ring if they made it in Platnium. πŸ™‚

  25. Ya know I like how shiny they are but that is it. My wife has way better taste then those rings though she likes the rocks.

  26. might be cute as a purity ring for a teen, but a wedding ring I’d have to say no. dolphin shaped blue diamond could work tho lol

  27. Thank you for posting this. I wanted a simple engagement ring (platinum setting with pink sapphires and a center diamond.) He said that was too expensive. So I showed him this and said sweetly, “Well this is sooo much cheaper than that ring I wanted and it comes in a set.”

    The ring I wanted is on it’s way!

  28. Jeeze! I thought I was obsessed! Don’t drink the Kool-Aid dude! Let your wife have her HK thing but you shouldn’t have to pretend that you are likewise afflicted. My husband “tolerates” the HK toaster and the checks coz he never writes checks but that’s about it and I respect him for it. I think you need to hold an intervention for your wife!
    Good luck man.

  29. Hi i like hello kitty so much and im onlie 10 and i like the wedding rings and i really really love that hello kitty cell phone and my bd is coming up and i might get a cell phone will bye

  30. my fiance already has a ring he wants πŸ™‚ but but , I am still looking for my wedding ring. I reaaally love this kitty ring. But i don’t want both. O_O; what am I gonna do with two hello kitty rings? one that doesnt even show the kitty?!?!?! πŸ™ seriously i wonder if you can buy them separately.

  31. I’m obsessed with hello kitty but i didnt know people could be this obsessed with it …this is terrible!! i like the ring and everything and i would want it for myself but definately not for a wedding ring.

  32. Hahaha, for real, that’s a real wedding ring? That’s got to be a terrible joke. I have spent the last four weeks looking for the perfect ring and this post was a nice change of pace. Doesn’t matter if the head’s on the inside. It’s even worse that the kitty is gnawing at your finger! Ahh!

  33. My boyfriend adores Hello Kitty! He would love to wear this beautiful wedding ring and he wants me to wear a Hello Kitty wedding dress! I love him!

  34. What’s sad is, I know my boyfriend would wear one if I asked, but I would NEVER make him go through that humiliation. Hell I don’t even wanna go through life with that furball’s face engraved on my wedding band.

    • Forever21! If you can’t find any at the good deals, great clothes, and cletlepmoy awesome store!, try Charlotte Russe, Delias, even Khol’s. Still can’t find any? There are a lot more choices on their websites. Don’t have time for the shipping? Might have to find a cheap-o one at Walmart or Target. Have fun!

  35. Wow now I see why the hello kitty face is on the inside of the ring for men…I mean no guy I’ve ever been with would wear that ring…although I wish my boyfriend would :]

  36. Dude, if you put that ring on your finger and were discovered by a band of yahoos, you’d be lashed to the back of a truck and dragged down the street for at least a mile….

  37. Oh, cute rings but NOT for guys…I would totally want one if I were getting married now !

    Ariella, you are one smart cookie…good going on getting the ring you really wanted !

  38. Don’t worry, if your wife makes you get these rings, I’m pretty sure you can get engravings faded to nothing. That way, you can exfoliate Kitty’s face to oblivion. She’d still get your money, though.

  39. Yipes, 1600 bucks?

    My husband got me the 175 dollar HK ring from Zales and I love it!

    These rings are cute.. but not clean out your wallet cute!
    I would just want the ladies one. I’d never make my man wear a HK ring.

  40. You have to REALLY love your spouse to agree to wear these proudly as a sign of your love and devotion to someone. For the female it’s okay, but unless the guy is a yes man, no male in his right mind would wear the matching male band.

    Still, if it wear Dear Daniel and not HK on the groom’s band, I don’t think it would be as bad.

  41. I totally understand Hello Kitty Hell! My boyfriend wants these, yes a GUY WANTS THESE RINGS… he wants a hello kitty scooter, I told him no….It’s insane!

    I think viewing this site has now given me sufficient warning that giving into one hello kitty request will only bring about more, there is no end in sight!!

  42. omg i love your posts and the comments are very funny … “on ring to rule them all ” =)) ….i’m not a hello kitty fan but i dont hate the hk industry πŸ˜›

  43. I want one but I don’t want my husband to wear one! Just me. this is a very cute idea along with a Hello Kitty wedding.

  44. Ha. I’m so lucky, I mentioned these to my boyfriend and he seriously wants them almost as bad as I do. ;P.

    I don’t own much HK items, a couple shirts max, but I never had to force my liking of HK on my man. :].

    He and I are planning on matching HK tattoos. ;D.

    But I totally understand what too much is; I wouldn’t own household appliances or have an entire wedding.

    Your wife is nice enough to let you have this blog though for your sanity.

  45. aww they are soooo cute!!!! i just have to have these for my wedding!!
    im still trying to convince my fiance to get them. πŸ™‚ wish me luckkk! πŸ˜€

  46. ooh i love these, me and my girlfriend are both shameless hello kitty fans πŸ˜› do you think they’d stone me to death if i asked to have 2 female rings??
    *wantthembadnow*

  47. I love those rings… I’m gonna convience my boyfriend to buy them. I am a sanrio/otaku junkie… Thanks for the idea!

  48. heheh i never thought that sanrio acttually came out with wedding bands and engagement rings… my boyfriend was terrified at first but eventually he said we’ll get this lol

  49. hai..i love this hello kitty ring , can u tell me where can buy this hello kitty ring ? and the wat price ? im from malaysia..thanks

  50. I loved it, but just for me… I never would like to my husband use.. Things to decorate the home, kitchen, my clothes, have the Kitty is ok, but his personal things is too much! Almost this things I respect!

  51. IF I ever get married again, we will have these. Any man who loves me enough to marry me will love me enough to wear this ring!! Whoo Hoo!!!

  52. Hello Kitty is good as a child’s toy or the odd throw pillow — but a WEDDING RING?! WTF?!

    Is there nothing sacred?!

    (Also, it’s nice to have a pet kitty in your house, but be sure to have her spayed, to prevent her from multiplying!)

  53. This is freaking hilarious! I love HK. I would not, however, use this as my main wedding ring. I think the cost is quite high for two diamond chips! I also love my diamonds….not as suggestions of diamonds. I wouldn’t mind having it just for myself as a right handed ring. No way would I ask my husband to wear it after 25 year of marriage. Plus I think he is in Hello Kitty Hell with the author of this site! Love the site BTW even though I am like the oldest Hello Kitty fan on the planet (@49yrs). My 50th Bday party WILL BE HELLO KITTY!! Hello Kitty…Rock on!

  54. can u give me the website where u found these rings my man wants to get them for me and him when we get married pleaaseeeeee thank you I love Hello Kittyyy

  55. o___o one ring to rule them all, one ring to find them. One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

    Somebody get four midgets, a ranger, an elf and a dwarf. The ring reformed.

    I would never wear one of these… I’d be afraid my finger would burn off at the touch… (As a personal rule: no fandom in permanent things. So I won’t ever get a Triforce tattoo or get the symbol of the Deathly Hallows on a wedding ring)

  56. NEVER!!!!!!!!!! i would get lord of the rings wedding rings before i would get hello kitty, and i love hello kitty but i would never have my husband get that! ladies please never make a man get that ring set! if i were a man i would “lose” the ring. and all the crap they would get from there friends! and trust me there friends would find out. never do this to a man!!!

  57. i really love hello kitty i’m a avid fan since i was a little girl but when i saw this wedding ring… i feel that i like to get married again (i’m separated) & i really really want this ring… Please tell me where can i get those rings… pls.. pls.. pls…

  58. These are actually really cute .__. And I know that my boyfriend would wear the other one~ and he’s not gay or bi either. C: I’m lucky. <3

  59. I will get one. Just one bec I’m getting divorced. What a great way to celebrate! If I have to get both of them, I’ll wear one on each hand.

  60. i like the rings i mean…its a tad obbsessive…and if my bf saw that it would make me happy i know he would buy them…hes already agreed on a hk bedset for our bed…but never wuld i humilate him this much by forcing him to wear one of those rings

  61. Hello kitty jewellery is already bad, but the most important jewellery for a married couple? Even as a woman I would not dare to put these on. I would probably risk losing my husband. Though it looks cute, it is TOO cute for something as serious for a symbol lifetime commitment. I would definitely skip this!
