Seymchan Meteorite. What Is It?
We use Seymchan Meteorite in the manufacture of our rings.
What is Seymchan Meteorite? Seymchan is a type of meteorite that was discovered in Russia in 1967. Seymchan is a Pallasite meteorite, meaning the meteorite is a combination of stone and iron.
We choose to use Seymchan because it is considered a rust resistant and stable type of meteorite.
What process does the Seymchan Meteorite go through?
We use Seymchan Meteorite shavings rather than in sheets. This reduces the end cost of the band and allows us to inlay the shavings and clear coat them for protection. We lovingly call the shavings StarDust, as do some other retailers as well.
The only problem with "StarDust" is it looks like this.....
Not quite sure anyone would want a ring with inlays of iron shavings.... Which is what meteorite shavings are.
So we came up with a solution! We inlay the bands with Seymchan, then layer over the shavings in fine Sterling Silver to give it that "wow" factor. Afterwards, the inlay is given a high quality, protective finish.
A very similar look can be achieved with carbon fiber, at a lower cost.
If you would like a Carbon Fiber simulated meteorite ring just contact us! We are able to do all our Seymchan rings at lesser cost in simulated meteorite as well.
Well, that is it for now!
