A bride-to-be’s neon green engagement ring has been mocked mercilessly online, with social media users comparing the ‘radioactive’ jewellery to kryptonite.

Photographs of the statement ring were posted to the That’s it, I’m Ring Shaming Facebook group by a user, from Australia, who simply wrote ‘go nuts’.

The central gem is set in a silver band, with much smaller, traditional stones in place  around the band.

On one of the photographs, the bride had written: ‘Finally, it’s set’.

Social media users flocked to the comments of the post, with dozens writing that the colourful engagement ring reminded them of the fictional substance kryptonite.

In the DC Comics universe, the green, crystalline material is known to emit a form of radiation which weakens Superman.

One user said: ‘Is this real Kryptonite’.

Another wrote: ‘Don’t go near Superman with this on!’.

‘When you get engaged to Lex Luthor,’ wrote a third, referring to the DC superhero’s mad scientist archenemy.

Another baffled Facebook user said: ‘What… am I even looking at? Are you the Green Lantern? Does this ring hold all your capabilities of being a superhero?’ 

Someone else compared the jewellery to blocks of green Jell-O, while another user said the ring was the ‘adult version of proposing with a ring pop’.

Others posted memes from the 2011 film Green Lantern – and even shared images of the Grinch and the Hulk.

One user said: ‘It looks radioactive. And I don’t mean that in a good way’.

Another commented: ‘This looks like radioactive waste. Was this bought from a Chernobyl Tour gift shop? It is made out of Christmas Jell-O from the 50s? 

‘Could that little bit of Kryptonite defeat Superman? I find this utterly entrancing in the sort of way that I’m cursed and poisoned at the same time.

‘This s*** looks like an Indiana Jones treasure’. 

‘Is this ring made from Mountain Dew?’ said a third.
