Q: Are your materials real?
A: We use a wide variety of stones and materials in our rings. Our antlers are natural shed meaning that they were found in the wild after the elk/deer shed them. The woods we use are from around the world and from reliable sources. We use both natural and man made gemstones. They are both the same chemically and physically but one is made in the earth and one is made by man. For the majority of our stone rings we use a material called Trustone which is real ores/stones that have been crushed up and reconstituted with a hard resin binder to make them more homogenous and durable for full ring inlays. In certain ring styles we can do non-trustone inlays but the designs are limited. The same goes for the full opal inlays we use. Due to the delicate and expensive natural of natural opal, we can't use it as a full stone inlay and have to use a man made opal instead which provides more vibrant colors as well as a more durable inlay. We also use crushed stone inlays in alot of our designs. they are 100% authentic stones that are crushed and inlaid with a hard resin to give a different look to the ring.
Q: What metals do you offer?
A: Here is a photo of our most common metal options:
We make all our gold rings in 10k gold. If you are interested in 14k gold or platinum contact us at email@example.com to get pricing.
Q: How can I care for my ring?
A: With each order we send you a cleaning kit to keep your ring looking beautiful. When this runs out we suggest buying Carnauba Car wax from your local Walmart or Autozone. This works great on your ring.
To prolong the life of your ring please make sure to remove it during any harsh manual labor, rigorous exercise and while using harsh chemicals.
Q: How should I care for my Etched Meteorite Ring?
A: The etched meteorite we use is Muonionalusta and is iron based. The patterns/texture in this meteorite (aka - Widmanstatten patterns) are formed as the meteorite cools a few degrees over millions of years as they fly through space. Since the meteorite is Iron based, it can be prone to rust. If your ring starts to rust you can always contact us to send your ring in to be cleaned. If you don't want to send it back in you can always use a soft bristle tooth brush with white vinegar or baking soda/water combination. After cleaning, let the meteorite air dry and apply a small amount of car wax or carnauba wax to the meteorite and wipe the excess off. This helps to seal the meteorite so water won't get into the grains and cause rust. Be aware that if you damage your ring by trying any of these home methods, it might take more to repair the ring and could incur extra costs. That's why we suggest sending the ring in to us as a first option.
