Ever wanted to propose with a 'Star Wars' engagement ring?
Classy, or downright nerdy? Definitely nerdy

It takes a certain amount of courage to propose to someone, but it would take real bravery to propose with one of these 'Star Wars' engagement rings.

Custom made and available to buy over on Etsy, the jewellery come adorned with either a Death Star, an Imperial crest, the Rebel logo or the most famous lovey dovey moment from 'Empire Strikes Back'.

Yep, if you really want to you and your boo could wear engagement rings engraved with the famously improvised lines from 'Episode V'.

In the script Princess Leia says, "I love you" and the original comeback from Han Solo was supposed to be the less snappy "Just remember that, 'cause I'll be back". Harrison Ford famously uttered "I know" instead.

The rings are made by the Swank family, a family of jewellers from Portland, Oregan USA who specialise in "Steampunk, Art Deco, Art Nouveau" and apparently 'Star Wars'.

Available in various materials and at varying prices, they start from £129.55.

It's not yet known whether George Lucas used the rings when he got engaged earlier this month. We suspect not, he can afford better.
