Nobody asked, but in case you ever wanted close ups of my engagement ring headcanons for eremin~
- The band is made of Eren’s cut and smoothed Titan armor; its kinda like a gold colored quartz crystal which is why it’s translucent and sparkles all throughout 8); he worked his ass off to make these for Armin lmao; the armor makes the ring very much a part of himself❤️
- The stone in the center is a slightly off pink very iridescent saltwater pearl cuz they’re Armin’s favorite (since he adores the sea lol); Eren also specifically loves that pearls are beautiful gems formed in layers from years and years of growth inside an oyster (hopefully that symbolism goes without say lol); Eren made sure he found the 2 prettiest ones possible for their rings (which match btw)
- The 2 side stones are precious opals, Armin’s second favorite gemstone cuz they’re freakin gorgeous. But Eren also specifically chose opals because Armin explained that they form where fossils of dead things decay, and it’s to remind Armin that even when Eren is long gone from the titan curse, his life, his love, and his dreams with Armin are still there with him, so Armin should continue to live on.
- The stones are set in gold, and, again, a LOT of work went into making them, as you can imagine, even with assistance.
And of course Armin ADORED THEM, through and through, he couldn’t believe his eyes❤️❤️❤️ (and when Eren explained all the thought behind them, he bawled his big blue eyes out hehe ;w;)
