Meteorite Wedding Band Buying Guide
With this helpful meteorite wedding band buying guide, get the facts you need! This has become a popular option for a wedding band material and for a few very good reasons. Let our meteorite wedding band buying guide help you decide if this is the choice for you!
Meteorite is exactly what it sounds like from the name. It is made from a meteorite that has traveled through space to land on Earth. Made typically of iron, it is unbelievably strong in composition for a long-lasting wedding band. The fact that they have a higher density than other metals makes them heavier to wear which is great for the man looking for a durable band. Our meteorite contains a high percentage of iron with other trace amounts of the elements nitrogen, cobalt and phosphorus. We offer meteorite rings made with black titanium, black zirconium, cobalt and gray titanium.
The overall appearance of meteorite is dependent on a few different factors. The color of the metal will be greatly affected by the distance traveled, the impact of the fall, the amount of iron to other metals in the composition, and other factors. It can be black, gray, or even white in color. The meteorite will also have small markings or inclusions similar to a diamond’s inclusions that will make it easier to identify in case of theft, as well as help to add beauty to the band. Since meteorite is usually seen as a textured inlay as opposed to the band itself, the appearance will hold up well for years. However, rust can be an issue with this type of metal due to the high iron content so care should be taken not to regularly submerge the ring in water.
Meteorite bands are offered in a variety of styles. They are available in flat, beveled, and other edges. A great way to showcase the contrasting appeal of this metal type is to choose an inlay that is opposite in color to the band itself. For example, a whiter metal band with a darker inlay of meteorite or a black band with a whiter meteorite inlay. You can also choose between inlays that feature differently sized inclusions, depending on your preference.
