Steampunk ring with realistic human eye that opens

Steampunk ring with realistic human eye that opens

Now here's some jewelry that makes a statement. I think that statement is something like "MY FINGER-EYE IS WATCHING YOU!" This unique ring is made of pewter in three different shades. Of course, the standout element isn't a jewel, but rather a lifelike artificial human eye. I'm not sure if there is any automatic component to it, but the metallic lid does somehow slide open to reveal the eye to the shock and amusement of all.

The product description is cryptic in that special Steampunk sort of way:

A surviving, stand-alone animated integrant of the advanced, life-sized android from the famous workshops of Ezekiel Rosenstein; C 1865. 3-tone pewter ring with opening eye-lid exposing a realistic, taxidermal eye.

I think what is being suggested is that the ring holds the eye of an automaton build by some person named Ezekiel Rosenstein around 1865. From what I gather, Ezekiel Empire Rosenstein was an engineer who invented the Galvanic Matter Transpositor. The work of this forgotten genius has recently been "rediscovered". OK. Good fiction. Good fun!

Here's where you can get the steampunk automaton eye ring on eBay. The seller is in the UK, so be sure to double-check the shipping charges if you are in the United States.

The ring is also available on Amazon as the Steampunk Automaton's Eye of Ezekiel Rosenstein Gothic Ring.
