Fiancée’s neon green engagement ring is ridiculed online with radioactive jokes

A bride-to-be's neon green engagement ring has been mocked mercilessly online, with social media users comparing the 'radioactive' jewellery to kryptonite.

Photographs of the statement ring were posted to the That's it, I'm Ring Shaming Facebook group by a user, from Australia, who simply wrote 'go nuts'.

The snaps, one taken with the ring inside its box and another on the bride-to-be's hand, showcase the very unusual piece, which features a square cut, neon green stone.

The central gem is set in a silver band, with much smaller, traditional stones in place  around the band.


On one of the photographs, the bride had written: 'Finally, it's set'.

In the DC Comics universe, the green, crystalline material is known to emit a form of radiation which weakens Superman.

One user said: 'Is this real Kryptonite'.

Another wrote: 'Don't go near Superman with this on!'.

'When you get engaged to Lex Luthor,' wrote a third, referring to the DC superhero's mad scientist archenemy.

Another baffled Facebook user said: 'What... am I even looking at? Are you the Green Lantern? Does this ring hold all your capabilities of being a superhero?'

Someone else compared the jewellery to blocks of green Jell-O, while another user said the ring was the 'adult version of proposing with a ring pop'.
