The meteorite used in Chris Ploof’s designs are sourced exclusively from Namibia’s Gibeon Meteorite, which flamed into our atmosphere some 30,000 years ago. The metal of the meteorite is estimated to be about four and a half billion years old, and is one of today’s rare commodities. Due to its nickel content, Gibeon Meteorite is naturally resistant to stain + rust. Chris combines time-honored techniques with state of the art research and the finest materials to create one-of-a-kind rings that are second to none.
This is a one-of-a-kind estate item, fully restored to a showroom finish. This ring has an appraised value of $3,320.
