From Video Jewelry to Dr. Who!
I had so much fun doing my blog post on video game jewelry that I decided to try one on Sci-Fi jewelry! At the recommendation of the young people in my life I decided to dedicate my first Sci-Fi jewelry post to the longest-running science fiction television show in the world, Doctor Who!
It seemed very appropriate because when I was very young my father started his lifelong love of Dr. Who and shared it with me.
Earrings That Are Out of This World
Let’s start off with this pair of Who-tastic earrings! The image on the earrings is the symbol of the Time Lords, the lost alien race to which The Doctor belongs!
These light-hearted Dr. Who loving earrings will proclaim you aesthetically and philosophically a Whovian.
A Time Lord Needs a Companion
“There’s a lot of things you need to get across this universe. Warp drive… wormhole refractors… You know the thing you need most of all? You need a hand to hold.”
— The Doctor, Season 6, Episode 6 of Doctor Who
The Doctor doesn’t travel across all of time and space alone, and neither will the pair who has these!
A Tear in Space and Time
A crack in the very fabric of reality. Reality begins to collapse within itself, leading to cracks like this appearing throughout all of space and time. Looks like one found itself on this ring!
This sterling ring is quite cool in my book. As a jewelry designer I love texture and asymmetric details in jewelry. It just adds that unique pop which in this case nicely represents a time crack.
Sometimes I feel the time cracks closing in on me when I have too much to do in too little time to do it.

Time in Relative Dimension in Space, AKA the TARDIS
For those of you who don’t know, this blue police box is actually the Doctor’s time machine. It’s ability to camouflage itself was damaged, so it is stuck in the shape of an early 1900’s British police box!
The British police box has become one of the biggest icons of the Doctor Who universe.
I personally love their choice of bright lapis lazuli blue for this fabulous time travelling device.
It’s Bigger on the Inside
In the show the TARDIS is the size of a police box on the outside, but gigantic on the inside! Just think of Hermoine’s purse from Harry Potter.
That will most likely not be the case with this lovely, handmade jewelry box, but is there a more appropriate place to store your Doctor Who jewelry?
A Doctor Who Wedding!
It wouldn’t be a Calla Gold blog post if we didn’t work the wedding jewelry into it!
Courtney and Cory from Austin, Texas had an amazing Dr. Who themed wedding. Check out their beautiful Whovian rings.
The groom’s band is adorned with Gallifreyan writing, the writing of the Time Lords!
It is from Custom Tungsten.com. The brides ring is from Meyers and Farrar Jewelers.
“If there’s one thing I believe in — just one! — I believe in her.” ~ The Ninth Doctor
Dr. Who or Harry Potter – Design With Your Enthusiasms Shining
Corey and Courtney share space time dreams and enthusiasm for the sci fi realm. How wonderful to use their shared fascination as a theme in their wedding jewelry. They are joined not only by their love, but mutual interest in their shared universe with Dr. Who.
Do you have something you both love? Maybe that unique affinity could be expressed in your wedding rings!Thinking it’s time to do a bit of Dr. Who binge watching, I am so behind,
