Meteorite jewellery collection by
Made out of real meteorites that fell from the skies to unveil beauty in us, humans. Unearthly glamour, pure cosmic matter shaped by crafty wrists of Silvijus Martinėlis.
Tempered by cosmos, filtered by the atmosphere, withstood four ice ages. Eternity, that is tailored personally - to become a part of you or your exceptional one.
Beyond jewellery - more than jewellery.
THE OLDEST METEORITE EVER DISCOVERED
One of the meteorites we use is Muonionalusta - the oldest ever discovered meteorite. It impacted with the Earth in the north of the Arctic Circle, currently the territory of Northern Sweden, about a million years ago.
The meteorite, itself, is also probably the oldest known meteorite. For more than 4,5 billion years it was dancing in outer space together with other heavenly bodies and later, since landing on Earth, experienced four ice ages.
METEORITE FROM THE HARDEST TO REACH AREAS
The spectacular triangular-shaped object was found in a stream bed of the Yasachnaya River in 1967. Another piece was found using a mine detector and was provided to the Academy of Science, USSR.
Exploring its surface, it is visibly clear that this meteorite withstood enormous stress and pressure as it fell through the atmosphere. All of this self-sacrifice just to reach you.
Our supplier belongs to International Meteorite Collectors Association. His identity code is 18093. Moreover, we brought the material to the scientific laboratories of Vilnius University where it was confirmed that the chemical compositions matched those of specific meteorites.
The thick cortex of hydroxides grows on them while they rest on the surface of the Earth, enabling us to define the meteorites age, in addition to cracks on the surfaces showing us that there was a collision with another asteroid while still in outer space.
It was formed naturally over the course of millions of years. The presence of the Widmanstätten pattern is proof of the extraterrestrial origin of the object.
It is being cut according to the size of a finger, so every ring can be tailored especially for you. Then it is being ringed together with gold or another valuable metal. This pattern becomes apparent only in the last stage of making, after putting the ring through a special acidic solution. Only then can this unique structure be unveiled.
THE RINGS: THE NEW ALCHEMY
Researchers discovered there is enough gold and platinum in the Earth's core to cover the whole globe with four metres thick layer of bling.
Meteorites are much more of a rarity, although we have rings with combined materials of silver, gold, platinum and meteorite stone.
Pure cosmic matter. Falling star as your accessory - so you could make wishes all the time.
Connects phenomena and traditions. Connects heaven and earth. Connects you and your loved one.
The eternity of meteorite meets the strength of diamond. The most valuable stones - all together.
