18k Gold & Diamond Ring with Gibeon & Huckitta Meteorite
Starting at $4,790.00
This is an 18k gold man’s ring inlaid with 2 types of meteorite, Gibeon and Huckitta, and set with a .29 ct brilliant cut Diamond, SI1, G/H. The Huckitta is framed by the Gibeon meteorite, which has been etched with nitric acid to reveal the characteristic patterns, or Widmanstatten figures, of iron meteorites. The Huckitta meteorite is a stoney-iron pallasite that was found in the Australian desert where thousands of years of exposure has changed the nickel-iron matrix into hematite and magnetite. These are in contrast to the rich color of the 18k yellow gold and sparkle of the Diamond. The ring itself is a heavy man’s band with a square outer profile. This ring weighs 27.5 grams, is 8.7 mm wide at the top, tapering to 6.9 mm at the back, and is a size 12. It cannot be sized, but can be custom made in any size.
