One of our favorites! This cool man's wedding band features unique materials and textures. Crafted out of cobalt chrome, measuring 9mm wide and inlaid with exotic genuine meteorite.
Notice the edges of the ring. It has an attention grabbing "Rock Polish" finish.
Cobalt chrome is fairly new to the jewelry world. But it has been used in the medical industry for years because it is hypo-allergenic. Another benefit is that the color is as white, or whiter even, than platinum! But it is not expensive like platinum.
In the center is genuine Gibeon meteorite. Yes, it came from outer space!
Gibeon meteorites came from asteroid fragments, (or an exploding star). Experts in radiometric dating claim the material is about 4 billion years old. Wow. They are composed mainly of iron and nickel, with trace amounts of cobalt.
The Gibeon meteorites were first collected in the 1830s in Namibia, which is located in southern Africa. This material is becoming quite scarce and costs have tripled in just the past few years due to demand.
Because meteorite is composed mainly of iron, and iron will rust, meteorite will rust if left exposed to water or moisture. That is why this ring has a oil resin applied to it as a coating to keep it from rusting.
If you get this ring wet here is what to do:
- Completely dry the ring.
- Dip the ring in rubbing alcohol.
- Completely dry it - use a blow dryer.
- Rub the meteorite with some gun oil to reseal it.
- Or just bring it to us and we will take care of it for you.
