What’s longer than forever?

October 23, 2009

Sometimes the internet takes you on funny trips. You search for one thing and end up finding something completely unrelated but interesting in its own right. That’s what happened to me when I searched google images for “wood grain pattern,” and ended up finding Boone Titanium Rings through an image of their titanium woodgrain ring (they also have rings with real wood inlays, too). From there it was a short hop, skip, and jump to the meteorite rings.

I’ve never been one of those girls who dreams about diamond rings and tennis bracelets. Diamonds are nice enough, but kind of boring and predictable, and I’m not keen on the human rights violations or mining practices typically used to extract them. Plus I’m kind of cynical about the whole “Diamonds are forever” marketing campaign. These meteorite rings, however, are made with pieces of the Gibeon meteorite, which fell on present-day Namibia during prehistoric times and is older than the earth. You could wear a piece of rock that fell from space! Talk about romantic. Plus the meteorite inlay looks pretty awesome next to that diamond, I must admit.

Would you wear a meteorite solitaire in lieu of a diamond? I know I would. It wouldn’t garner as many oohs and aahs as a giant sparkler, but I think it’s much more interesting.
