Over the years I've made countless iterations of meteorite rings, but none like this; it's the first of it's kind.
Estimated at 4 billion years old, the Gibeon Meteorite fell in southwest Africa (Namibia) in prehistoric times. Initially it was used by tribes to make tools and weapons superior to that of ground metals that were elemental (non-alloyed).
It's truly a unique material that is 100,000,000 times scarcer than gold. Floating through the primordial soup of the universe, and smashing into our planet was but a blip in it's life, and now I've made it into a circle for your finger. It's incredible.
The unique aspect of my design is simple: I stabilize the meteorite in a vacuum, etch it with acid, and seal it with Cobalt Chrome.
The ring is entirely coated in Cobalt Chrome making it durable, while enhancing it's natural beauty.
