What’s A Meteorite Ring & How You Can Own One
You probably went into this article thinking that there could be no such thing as a meteorite ring. Like, how do people make these things anyway? Do they have a farm or something? Is it something that can be harvested in the first place? Surely, that is not possible. So what the market advertises must be fake right?
Well, the answer is both yes and no.
I say yes because there are fakes and counterfeits making rounds in the market nowadays. But I also say no because the rings we offer on site are 100% real and authentic. We can even provide you a legitimate certificate to go with your purchase to prove that what you’re buying is the real deal. But hey, you can’t buy what you really know nothing about right? So for now, let’s start with the most basic question: What is this ring we’re talking about?
What Is This Ring, Exactly?
Before we all spiral into confusion, let me just clarify that the ring we’re talking about in this article is the jewelry – not some sort of gas halo often associated with talks about heavenly bodies. We’re talking about the accessory worn on the finger; the type of item you’d see in jewelry stores and pawn shops.
And today, we won’t just be talking about any old ring. We’ll be talking about meteorite rings – miraculous masterpieces crafted from a piece of the universe itself.
Now, wearing rings isn’t anything new. The adornment of such jewelry dates back to ancient times – Ancient Greece and Egypt especially. Throughout history, you will see that people of royalty and high statuses decorate their bodies with different types of accessories and tattoos. Back then, only the wealthy can afford such luxuries which is why people from that time period looked up to whoever has the capacity to wear such ornaments. In other words, jewelry was a status symbol. The wealthier people are, the more they decorate their bodies. It tells others that they are born of a rich family and they are to be respected.
Fast forward to present time, jewelry is now less of a status symbol and more of an item for expression. People, whether they admit it or not, like to stand out. We like to look unique and different from everybody else. Receiving comments like “you look weird” or “your wardrobe choices are interesting” is far better than being told that you look like just about everyone else. Truth is, we want to be considered an individual, not just a part of a group or posse. We want people to like, hate, adore, ignore, or love us for exactly who we are as a person. I think that being regarded as an “individual” is a pretty big deal for any person from any part of the world. It makes you feel special.
This is why we try so hard to make our look very personal. Sure, we follow fads and trends but at the end of the day, we jive things up so that we can be original. I think that “wanting to be different” is already embedded in our subconscious and we’ll do anything to achieve originality – whether it be wearing fashionably weird clothes, getting customized tattoos, or wearing creative pieces of jewelry.
If you’re the type who likes to stand out, then this kind of ring is definitely for you.
But how are these rings made anyway?
You all heard of a meteor shower before, right? Well, stuff like that really happens in real life. It’s just not some fantastical tale movie producers come up with. Meteor showers happen and they’re pretty natural even. They just don’t happen in a very grandiose manner like what you see in sci-fi films. Anyway, when a comet or meteor survives its crash to earth, the extra-terrestrial material that is salvaged from the crash is what is used to create jewelry. It’s important that the properties of the heavenly material are still intact and in good shape. Otherwise, it cannot be used to make jewelry.
Of course, as you may have already guessed, these heavenly bodies don’t crash to earth all the time. And whenever they do crash, there’s no telling whether there is salvageable material or not. This is why the price of this foreign mineral is extremely high – higher than the market prices for gold even. It’s rare, limited, and cannot be replenished right away. This makes meteorite very, very valuable. You can expect that the ring created using it will cost a hefty penny as well.
Then again, what would you rather choose? Will you buy an accessory that’s cheap but only lasts for a couple of months? Or, will you choose a meteorite ring that will stay even beyond your time? The choice should be obvious. Not to mention, the latter is also a more meaningful purchase. It’s not everyday that you can wear a piece of the heavens in your finger. It’s definitely worth every dollar.
There are many other rings out there – silver, gold, diamonds, and other precious stones. However, these you can buy at any given time. These rings are precious and scarce (that’s why it takes us several weeks just to craft one exotic inlay ring!). You don’t know whether companies, like ours, will keep manufacturing them in the future. It’s also very symbolic of the universe. It tells you that there are thousands of other worlds out there – and maybe what you’re wearing on your finger is somehow a part of one of those worlds. It’s really amazing if you think of it like that. You can really feel the connection between you and the rest of infinity.
