Daily Crush: Band Ring with Meteorite by David Yurman
By James Kim
Forged from the 4 billion-year-old Gibeon Meteorite, this ring is truly a one-of-a-kind statement accessory that may add some serious intergalactic cool to your look. For the history bit, the meteorite was discovered in Namibia, Africa, in 1836, but dates all the way back to prehistoric times. It contains prominent traces of nickel and iron, which yield an interesting pattern, color and texture. David Yurman, a sculptor-turned-designer, aspired to give “form” to the cosmic material and tread unknown territory by crafting an entire line of jewelry using this alloy as the key inspiration behind the collection. We particularly crushed for the geometric cut of the stone. Wear it to add an otherwordly dimension to your palette of accessories.
