I blogged about Cedric Guibert’s project to craft a 24k gold-plated d20 ring. Did you think there would be enough interest to fund the project?
At the time of writing, the Kickstarter is live and 87% funded. There are various designs and sizes, and you can find out more on the project page.
By design, the ring comes to pieces, so you can scatter that impressively expensive dice across the gaming table. I was worried, but the pitch video clarifies how your finger holds the precious metal in place.
- The large ring is 21.3mm or EU 67 in size/US 11 3/4.
- The medium ring is 20.4mm or EU 64/US 10 3/4.
- The small ring is 19.1mm or EU60/US 9.
We knew the gold ring was coming, but there’s silver too. Stretch goals may add more.
A limited number of lucky contributors will be able to acquire a ring with a unique design. The design of these exceptional rings will not be figurative but abstract: I will let my mind and my hand go to shape each of these rings. Impossible to know in advance what you will get. It will be a surprise. however, you can be sure each of these rings will be unique and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
Knowing Cedric Guibert’s background in Parisian high fashion, the pledge tiers surprised me as I assumed the rings would be expensive.
A pledge of €30 is enough to unlock a small d20, but that’s the dice and not the whole ring.
Backers at €35 can get the medium d20 as a thank you and €45 for the large.
Are the full-ring combos available to backers? Yep!
A limited number of d20 silver rings with small gold d20 are available to people who pledge €120
Backers have unlimited access to silver plated rings with small d20 at €135.
€145 unlocks a limited tier for a small mage ring with two small d20, one for backup.
Ready for the jump?
Backers with €595 to pledge in support will be a certificate of authenticity, a ring with a unique design and a small d20.
There are add-on options, but after the limited tier, the next one up is €795 for the whole set box of 6 rings, 6 small d20, 1 large d20 and the magnetic box itself.
All tiers support worldwide shipping and have an estimated delivery of this June.
