Rock Solid Meteorite Rings for Every Personality
If you’re looking for a ring that’s seriously out of this world, you’ll love the meteorite rings from Titanium-Buzz’s exclusive collection. Every meteorite ring in our assortment features a precious inlay made from a slice of the 4-billion-year-old Gibeon meteorite that crashed into the Earth thousands of years ago. Extra-terrestrial and extraordinary, each one of these rings is 100 percent unique with its own series of cross-hatches called Widmanstatten patterns — perfect for the jewelry-lover who rocks!
Durable, Eye-Catching Meteorite Rings
It took billions of years for the Gibeon meteorite to find its home on Earth, and the journey is visible in each of these meteor rings. Although the meteorite is old — the ultimate antique, if you will — it's also strong and long-lasting. After all, it survived in space for over four billion years. The exceptional strength of the material extracted from the Gibeon meteorite is due to its composition of nickel and iron. To boot, your Titanium-Buzz meteorite rings are encased in super-strong materials such as titanium, black zirconium and 18-karat gold.
Because of the material’s composite of nickel and iron, these rings might not be appropriate for those with base metal allergies. These materials do make meteorite rings resistant to rust when worn regularly due to the oils in the skin that coat the iron and keep it from oxidizing.
Meteorite & More: Mixed-Media Wedding Bands

How Rare Is the Material in Our Gibeon Meteorite Rings?
The debris field marking where pieces of the Gibeon eventually landed is about 70 miles wide and a full 230 miles long – the largest known debris field of its kind. Over 25 tons of the meteorite have been found in Namibia since its discovery in the 1830s. Thanks to advances in detection equipment, many more pieces may be recovered in the coming years.
Many Gibeon meteorite pieces are available today and are a favorite material of our designers because of their unique Widmanstatten lines and remarkable chemical stability. However, the government of Namibia now prohibits the export of meteorite fragments. As these rings and other meteorite jewelry grow in popularity, they may become increasingly prized and rare.
