Meteorite and Mokume Inlays

This ring has inlays of meteorite and rose gold and shakuko twist mokume gane.  Mokume gane is an ancient Japanese swordmaking technique using mixed metals and translates to "wood eye metal."  There are lands of titanium or other metal separating the inlay metals to add a unique contrast to the surface.  The meteorite used is the Gibeon Meteorite, and is estimated to be over 4 billion years old!  It has a unique crystalline grain structure called Widmanstatten lines that were caused by the meteorite slowly cooling over millions of years as it hurtled through space.  The ring shown is 9mm wide and the titanium is the polished finish.

 

In My Humble Opinion:
      This style looks good with a polished finish. Wider is better.
