Let me be clear: I do not wish anything negative on Miranda Scott or her Etsy store. I hope it stays closed forever, because that's how many orders she has. I hope her computer floods with orders and the orders back up into the internet and the internet is washed out to sea in a literal flood of orders, because that's how many orders she has. I hope she is happy.
However, if you buy a Harry Potter engagement ring you should not get married. Here is a photograph of the ring:
According to the Daily News, the ring is inspired by "the Golden Snitch," which, according to this website, is "the third and smallest ball used in Quidditch." Quidditch, if you don't know, is "a wizarding sport played on broomsticks." Marriage, if you are unaware, is legal bond between adults ultimately resulting in either death or divorce.
Imagine this scenario: The adult male on whom you have spent the past four years of your life takes you out to a fancy but not intimidating dinner. "Oh no, I hope he doesn't propose to me at dinner," you think. He doesn't, thank goodness. You get back to your shared home and he pulls out a ring. "Is that?" "Yes—the Golden Snitch," he says. He has proposed to you with a ring you recognize from the game they play on broomsticks in the Harry Potter series of films. Two adults sitting in a living room sharing one of the biggest decisions they will make, the centerpiece of which is a Harry Potter ring.
Imagine this scenario: The adult female on whom you have spent the past seven years of your life takes you to the top of a mountain. She pulls out a ring. "Is that?" "Yes—the Golden Snitch," she says. She has proposed to you with a ring you recognize as the smallest ball—the name of which both of you know—used in the broomstick game child wizard Harry Potter plays during his downtime. Two adults standing on top of a mountain with a ring from a series of young adult novels neither of whom were, even at the time of publishing, the correct age to read. A Harry Potter engagement ring.
You have made a series of incorrect choices.
You should not get married.
