Did you know three types of meteorite used in jewelry making? While each one is ancient and literally from out of this world, they each have different compositions- iron, stony, and stony iron.
At Chris Ploof Designs, We use Gibeon meteorite, an iron meteorite with trace amounts of nickel, exclusively in our work. Because this material is, in fact, iron, meteorite rings need precision engineering, and a little care to stay looking great.
“I have one of your Damascus rings, and I just love it, but it doesn’t fit me anymore. Can I order a replacement? I know these can’t be sized….”
So we’ve decided to add a blog to our website as a way of keeping our customers and friends updated and informed about what we are working on and with – from new designs and ideas to what makes the materials we use special. This first installment is to introduce you to our use of the term “sole authorship”.
Occasionally we will send out cool photos and videos of our studio processes, share pictures of new products, and let our fans know of a new store carrying our jewelry. Your information will never be shared and we respect your privacy!
