Paired with an uncut aquamarine gemstone, this Gibeon ring’s natural beauty is unmatched. A wavy white gold detail accents the ethereal gemstone, set in a 10k white gold basket. Gibeon, found in 1836 in Namibia, Africa, originated from the core of an ancient asteroid. The lines visible in this ring’s Gibeon overlay, called a Widmanstätten pattern, are the result of cooling in outer space over millions of years and etching with dilute nitric acid, revealing a three-dimensional octahedral structure in the metal. No two meteorites will ever have the same Widmanstätten pattern, making this hand-crafted ring a one-of-a-kind beauty.
Aquamarine, derived from the Latin for “water of the sea,” is not only a hard and durable gem, but also often completely flawless. A blue, blue-green variety of Beryl and cousin to emeralds, aquamarine is sought after for its breathtaking translucency and organic beauty.
