The Gibeon meteorite fell to Earth billions of years ago, exploding into pieces that scattered throughout a field located in what is now Gibeon, Namibia. The discovered remains of this deep space treasure hold intergalactic mystery and a prehistoric significance that make them special stones to use in jewelry with spiritual, sometimes even sacred significance—especially for wedding rings.
Our ancestors used meteorites as popular jewelry accents for thousands of years. Ancient civilizations believed that meteorites contained healing properties and often used the space gems in their jewelry. Meteorites exhibit their own unique geologic composition and each metal and mineral composition creates an extraordinary design, which also explains why the dazzling stars were used so often in ancient adornments.
The Gibeon Meteorite is composed primarily of nickel and iron. This elemental pairing creates a pattern known as the Widmanstätten pattern, named for Count Alois van Beckh Widmanstätten. The pattern is “formed by interwoven bands of kamacite and taenite, which can only form over literally millions of years of very slow cooling.”
In our day and age, Gibeon meteorite inlays play prominently in the popular design of rugged and cool wedding bands for men. The Widmanstätten pattern adds a stone-like texture to a plain band while hiding a deep space history that has survived and witnessed a mind-blowing space odyssey.

Black Diamond Bands
The Black Diamond Men’s Wedding Ring in yellow gold combines two extraterrestrial extravagant gems in one ring. An inlay of genuine Gibeon Meteorite creates rugged texture while one-third carats of black diamonds add star-like intrigue. Black diamonds, also known as carbonado, are known to have a composition that contains a mineral only found in meteors, which suggests deep-space origins for these gems. Like a cosmic traveler passing by the sun, the inlay rests against a yellow gold base for amazing contrast.
