We’ve seen our fair share of crazy, bold, funny and beautiful proposal ideas. And if the love of your life happens to be a photographer, Kelo Designs has a perfect ring box: shaped as a lens.

Since the end of the Cold War, we’ve been seeing bizarre spy gadgets make the news and blow our minds. Because most of those gadgets are quite difficult to find, they’ve become hot items for collectors. In 1991, Christie’s even sold a gold-plated KGB ring spy camera for $25,000. It was so rare that in an interview with L.A. Times, Christie’s spokeswoman Katherine Curtis even said: “We think there is only one other ring camera like it in the world.”
