Spaceport America Flight Will Carry Wedding Rings to Space

SPACEWED PR — On April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin became the first person to journey into outer space, permanently shattering the definition of the word impossible.  To commemorate the 50th anniversary of that historic event, on May 20, 2011, SpaceWed, a privately owned Polish company, will send a wedding ring set into space.

These rings, which will be called SWR-001, will mark the launch of SpaceWed’s Space Wedding Rings Initiative.  Later this year, SpaceWed will continue its celebration Yuri Gagarin’s achievement, by sending an additional 50 wedding ring sets into space.  These Limited Edition rings, which will be known as the SWR-50th Anniversary Collection, will be made available for purchase worldwide.

Anna Wieruszewska Puto, owner and co-founder of SpaceWed, explains the idea behind the Space Wedding Rings Initiative, saying, “SpaceWed believes that while in space, the rings will absorb the magic and energy of the universe, assuring the rings’ owners of love, happiness and long-lasting marriage.”  Until now, astronauts were the only people in the world whose wedding rings could be taken to space to absorb the mystical powers of the cosmos.  Now, thanks to the Space Wedding Rings Initiative, the cosmic powers of the universe will be made available to the world.

As with all fine jewelry, Space Wedding Rings are an investment that will appreciate in value over time.  Space Wedding Rings are timeless, utterly unique and can be handed down for generations to come.  Each set of rings will come with complete proof of authenticity, including rocket launch documentation.

Additional details regarding the Space Wedding Rings Initiative will be released on April 12, 2011 at

The Space Wedding Rings Initiative is a project of SpaceWed, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Polish company, Fajne Wesele, a full service wedding agency and wedding merchandise broker.  Devoted to the pursuit of innovative ideas that combine the concepts of love and marriage with the intrigue and mystery of outer space, the people behind SpaceWed use their extensive knowledge of wedding planning and facilitation to provide a wedding experience that is truly out of this world.
