Gibeon meteorite is not a type of meteorite- all come from the same meteorite that fell in prehistoric Namibia!  Around 150 fragments of this stone have been collected. This material is particularly desirable because of the pattern it displays when etched, called a Widmanstatten Pattern, is particularly exquisite.  

The chemical composition of the Gibeon is:

  • 90% iron

  • 8% nickel

  • 0.4% cobalt

  • 0.04% phosphorus.

I have long avoided offering this type of ring for sale specifically because this iron-nickel alloy is prone to rusting if not carefully cared for.  I am now able to offer it because of the success of a treatment developed in-house that fully protects the material from rusting with minimal care on the part of the wearer.  

The outer portion of this ring is made of Cobalt - the most scratch resistant and shatterproof material I offer. Like titanium it is hypoallergenic and biocompatible. However, in many circumstances under which your Titanium ring might scratch, Cobalt will not. It is an alloy that is identical to Platinum in color, but it is an order of magnitude stronger. Cobalt offers nearly the scratch resistance of Tungsten Carbide, but unlike Tungsten, Cobalt will not shatter if dropped.

Comfort fit.

Sizing

I highly recommend going to a jewelry counter to determine your size, even if you believe you already know your size. "Do it yourself" ring sizing methods (string, etc.) should absolutely not be trusted. Be sure to be measured using the width you plan to order.



This ring is 8mm width only.

Cobalt interior wood rings cannot be resized at all! Every ring is custom made to the exact size provided. An error in sizing will necessitate a completely new ring. Rings in unworn condition will be subject to a 25% restocking fee if a return is required.

Each ring is given multiple coats of a hybrid epoxy finish, which is completely water-proof and soap proof. This protective coating is sanded up to 12,000 grit for an unbelievable, glass-like finish.
