18k Gold & Diamond Ring with Gibeon & Huckitta Meteorite
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. 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.
