Caring for mens wedding bands.

The first and foremost question we receive when customers ask about caring for their mens wedding band is about the care of a meteorite band. Meteorite inlays are more valuable than gold (market value) and have been extremely popular over the past 5 years since skilled craftsmen have learned how to craft them into award winning design. For this reason we include the following care instructions for this exquisite material.

Mens Wedding Bands – Meteorite Ring Care

A meteorite is a solid piece of debris from a source such as an asteroidor a comet, which originates in outer space and survives its impact with the earth’s atmosphere and surface – typically originating millions of years ago. Mens Wedding Bands has one of the largest selections of meteorite rings in the world. Most of our meteorite rings are made with Gibeon meteorite.

Meteorite should not chip, crack or break. It does, however, have the potential to scratch or dent like any other material. We do not recommend wearing your ring while doing intense activities that could be hard on your hands (yard work, construction, automotive repair, etc).

If the etch pattern becomes less sharp over time you are welcome to return your meteorite ring to us for re-etching for $49.99 (this fee covers the re-etching service plus shipping charges to and from the factory and back to the customer). This is a lifetime service.

Please note that meteorites are almost never “perfect”. Expect that there might be small imperfections/marks/inclusions visible in the meteorite in your ring. These natural inclusions in the meteorite are called Troilite. They are just like having a knot in wood, making each piece unique.

Meteorite is an iron based material and does have the potential to rust although we use Gibeon meteorite which is considered to be one of the more stable meteorite types. Care must be taken to keep meteorite away from chemicals (chlorine, bleach, swimming pools, etc.) - especially anything acidic. Below are instructions on how to remove rust should that occur. Materials needed will be an old toothbrush, a soft cloth, 90% rubbing alcohol, and gunmetal oil.

First:Place the ring in the small cup and submerge it in the alcohol letting it soak for 30 minutes – occasionally scrubbing the meteorite gently with the toothbrush.

Second:Remove the ring from the alcohol and dab dry with a soft cloth and air dry for 20-30 minutes.

Third:Apply a small amount of gunmetal oil to the toothbrush, and gently scrub the meteorite. Wipe off excess oil with the soft cloth. Gunmetal oil is an easy way to repel water and keep your meteorite ring protected.
