It’s the 4 most important words that every single hopeless romantic dreams of hearing:
“Fancy a Snorlax ring?”
Sweeter words were never said but said they shall now be after high-end Japanese boutique jeweler U-Treasure has unveiled a range of high-end Snorlax rings and necklaces! As enchanting as these Pokemon possessions may be, it’s safe to say that they’ll cost more than a pretty pokedollar to obtain.
Sadly spending hours at the slots in Celadon City Game Corner won’t cut it for these high-priced items, as only the most wealthy of pokefans (or spouses of the most wealthy of pokefans) can ever dream of wearing the gorgeous glutton as their garb.
Coming in a variety of metals, all necklaces and rings can be purchased on U-treasure’s online store. The silver editions are available for the mere price of ¥18,700 (£117) for the necklace and ¥24,200 (£151) for the ring. But if you, like any suspiciously wealthy geek prefer to dazzle your pot-bellied buddy in full shiny splendour, then the platinum version of the necklace rests at the ludicrously higher price of ¥275,000 (£1722).
It’s only fitting that such an item is carved in the image of Snorlax, as he beautifully illustrates what you’ll look like after all the work hours you’ll need to pour in to afford the darn thing. It’s ironic that Snorlax is a Normal-Type, because the price of his rings are anything but!
These items fashioned after everyone’s favourite sleepy Pokemon are just the latest in a long line of Gaming Jewellery that U-treasure has produced over the years. From Pokemon to Kirby and even Kingdom Hearts, the fact that U-treasure still operates as a viable business indicates that there must be a worryingly high amount of gamers who are richer than they have any right to be!
So remember; work hard, be ruthless, be strict, neglect your friends, neglect your family, neglect your health, never take a day off, and then one day, yes, you too can be the proud owner of an overpriced ring based off a fat badger from a children’s videogame.
