Heard the one about the sparkling 'diamond' ring that's attached to a porcelain mug? It's hilarious. Especially seeing as it's packaged in a beautiful presentation box that only shows the gleaming ring. Haha!
We've seen some amusing ideas over the years but the 2 Carat Mug is up there with the funniest. As you can see this cruel but comical mug has a handle resembling an engagement-style ring complete with a genuine Swarovski crystal.
Can you hear the wedding bells?
The idea - as if we need to explain it - is to present the ring in its elegant box and watch your recipient's face drop as they realise this luxe loop is actually a mug handle. You won't know whether to laugh, scarper or put a steak on your black eye!
Bona fide Swarovski Crystal!
Aside from its initial comedic shock value the 2 Carat Mug is a seriously original vessel from which to sip your tea or coffee. Who else do you know who's got a blinged-up mug? (Don't answer that if you've got a P Diddy wannabe at the next desk).
Darling, will you… put the kettle on!
Armed with this gaudy mug you'll always have a finger sparkler to hand. And that can be mighty handy when the amorous Finchy-style sales rep comes a-calling. Yes you'll have to slip your third finger through the 'handle' to achieve the full effect, but who cares about that when everyone is transfixed by your whopping great Jimmy Savile of a ring.
An ab fab gift for the girl with everything (or the pretend rapper with nothing), the 2 Carat Mug is an 18 carat winner when it comes to raising a good giggle. You can even choose between gold or platinum effect glaze. Brandishing a mug has never been so glam. Darling, would you do me the honour of... putting the kettle on!

Ive ordered one of these for my wife for Valentines as a gag but just to be on the safe side I have backed it up with a nice pink slanket which I know she'll just love. Phil Hubbard, Benfleet, Essex - 12th February 2009
This is a really good way to either lose your girlfriend or get yourself shot... one or the other... only a guy would find this funny.... KB, Essex - 7th February 2009

Well it's a great idea but the packaging needs to be better. The ring does not sit 100% straight when in the box due to shape of the mug itself. Great for a laugh though. I ordered the "platinum" version. The crystal sparkles well in the light. Sweet little gift I suppose. Jak Miller, Great Yarmouth - 3rd June 2008
I recently ordered one of these for my girlfriend. I thought it would be funny to pretend to propose! Let's just say it didn't go down to well.... Very good product though!!!! Xlp9q, Harrow - 2nd June 2008
Wasn't Paul O Grady tricked into receiving one of these on his programme a couple days ago? Martin, Andover - 30th May 2008
