Came across this link from someone on Twitter earlier. Basically it's a crazy expensive custom piece of jewelry - a Mega Man X diamond pendant that costs $2,620.

I'd post pictures but I'm too lazy at the moment to upload a picture here and I don't want to hotlink either, so check it out at the link below. They also have other custom pieces of video game-based jewelry as well.

It's definitely cool, but I can't help but wonder if any gamer would actually pay that much for something like that unless they were pretty rich or really into collecting that kind of stuff.

Not only would you have to be a gamer, be rich, but you would have to be a jewellery fan and you would have to like megaman... and finally you would wear something like that. It looks very well crafted but for me it's a little to flashy....

Maybe it's indicative of living in Spartanburg, but whenever I go into pawn shops, I always see junk like that (though usually like Batman or Mario themed or something). Apparently there's a market for that kind of thing (though the fact that they always wind up in pawn shops here...), so I don't know.

No way I would be paying that much for a jewelry. I think it's probably good for those rich gamers who love collecting gaming related memoribilia.

That's kinda neat, I guess, but way too expensive. The most I've paid for game-related jewelry (or any jewelry for myself, now that I think about it) is the $20 or so I paid for my Skyrim pendant, and I lost it, so I'm definitely not going to chance losing something that cost 2 grand. xD

@TK - Actually, they spend most of their money on cars. Multiple sports cars, usually. Buying jewelry is with money that typically only chump change to them, with a couple exceptions.

I dunno, I find it kinda gaudy as a piece of jewelry. It'd be an awesome ultra expensive figurine, but as something to wear? Nah.

Also interesting is the other works available, like the Mario Stars and whatnot. I like the stars a lot more personally, but they're not exactly cheap either. :P

This is kinda cool but the actually jewelry itself is pretty ugly looking to me. I personally wouldn't buy it. I'm not that flashy with jewelry so I won't wear it. I really only wear watches. So if I was to buy this, it would be for a female and I'm pretty sure most of my female friend would prefer a different jewelry than this one.
