Inlay Rings
Inlay is a technique of inserting pieces of materials into depressions in a base object to form patterns or pictures and is flush with the base object. These rings inlaid with Lapis, Jade, Turquoise, Gibeon Meteorite, and Dinosaur Bone are the finest available and made to be durable and long lasting. Inlays are all guaranteed for replacement should they become damaged in normal wear. These rings are customizable and any inlay can be substituted. Due to the nature of Inlaid rings, they cannot be resized and need to be custom made to fit.

Gemstone Rings
The Gemstone Rings designed by Metamorphosis combine the strength of metal, the beauty of faceted precious and semi-precious stones, and if desired, the subtle balance of contrasting inlaid designs to create a bold, personal statement. These rings, as with all our designs, are completely customizable.

Wedding Bands
Strong simple designs for men and delicate elegance for women, our wedding rings are durable and meant to last a lifetime. Any band can be customized and made in any metal we offer (14K and 18K yellow, white, rose, and lime gold or platinum), or combination of metals (where possible).
