Home Made Wedding Ring Forged Out of a Meteorite (45 pics)

Posted by Xaniel in Lifestyle » Hobby   15 May 2012   / 12946 views

This custom fabricator for the movie industry took a real Gibeon meteorite that he purchased online and turned it into his own unique wedding band. It took him four days to take the hunk of iron (the meteorite) and fashion it into a burnished wedding ring with a double helix twist that will not rust, and will surely be one of a kind.

so, how do you fuse the ends of the ring together once it's forged? beautiful ring btw, the meteorite material is pretty awesome.
