What better way to propose to your partner than with an engagement ring that resembles their favourite car.

The 'Petrolhead Proposals' service is a partnership between UK-based company Scrap Car Comparison and long-standing jeweller Edward Fleming. Each customer's design is unique to the next and draws design inspiration from a chosen brand or car model.

Examples include popular models like the Ford Fiesta, Mini Cooper, and Lamborghini Huracan, each with its own signature colour and design. And, like the real thing, it also has optional extras that consist of personalised number plate engravings on the ring's inner band.

Petrolhead love affair

Perhaps unknown is the fact that, for years, materials from the catalytic converters found in scrapped car exhausts have been recycled and used in the making of traditional wedding and engagement rings.

Dan Gick, Managing Director of Scrap Car Comparison, says: "On a daily basis, we meet customers that are gutted to be saying goodbye to their cars and leave the scrap yard wishing they could take a piece of it with them.

"As parts of modern scrapped cars are recycled and used in wedding and engagement rings already, it made perfect sense to us to take this interesting aspect of scrappage a step further, and give customers the chance to create the most romantic memento of their favourite motor."

'Pair romance with a ring reminiscent of the revving of your partner's favourite engine' is the message that these special rings aim to bring across to couples that share a mutual love for cars.

Unfortunately, the service is not available in South Africa but should it have been, it would most certainly be a hit.
