Dinosaur Bone Rings
ARE THESE DINOSAUR BONE RINGS 100% AUTHENTIC?
They absolutely are! All our dinosaur bone inlays are made from real, pulverized prehistoric fossils. Don’t you think it would be amazing to wear a piece of the world that existed hundreds of millions of years ago? If fossils can stand millennia underneath the rocks and earth, your Dinosaur Bone Rings will definitely last for a long, long time.
HOW ARE DINOSAUR BONE WEDDING BANDS MADE?
Dinosaur bone wedding bands are made from dinosaur fossils that have been crushed and processed into fine material which we can then use to create the inlays for your wedding bands. Most of the fossils we use come from the states of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona.
CAN I GET MY DINOSAUR BONE RING WET?
Yes! These rings are sealed tight with the use of a medical-grade resin that is specially formulated to keep everything safely in place.
Are Dinosaur Bone Rings Real?
Yes. You may be a casual Jurassic Park fan or still go to bed in your T-Rex pajamas. Regardless, you will be amazed to learn we source 100% genuine fossilized dinosaur bone in our rings. The fossils come from big stones called gembone, which on the surface look just like regular rocks. But looks can be deceiving, as these rocks are anywhere from 65 million to 230 million years old. We are talking about some material that is so ancient you can’t wrap your head around it.
When cut into, the rocks reveal a stunning, glasslike surface of dinosaur remains. Petrification has preserved the cellular structure of these dinosaur bones. The result is breathtaking and unique to the individual gembone.
Agatized dinosaur bone is a rare form of fossil. The fossil has been remineralized after originally being fossilized via calcite permineralization. Permineralization is when groundwater flows through organic remains and opens up cells and pores for petrification. Silica and calcite are the minerals that enter and start the petrification process and are responsible for nearly all fossils that exist today.
Are you bored yet? It gets better, so stay with us here. A cluster of mountains formed about 35 million years ago in the Colorado Plateau region of the Western United States. When this happened, a ton of super-hot groundwater infiltrated the strata layers where the petrified dinosaur fossils were, creating an ultra-rare situation called an “aqueous intrusion.”
This environment replaced the calcite present in the fossils with silica, eventually resulting in layers upon layers of beautiful gembone.
So, after a process 200 million-plus years in the making, there exists some genuinely spectacular dinosaur bone in the good old USA.
Dinosaur Bone rings are incredible because no one specimen is like the other. Depending on the mineral deposits present in the soil where the fossils were found, the appearance of these stones can vary dramatically. For example, copper will create a blue or green color pattern, while iron will turn the bones red, black, or brown. Sulfur present in the crystallization process will turn the fossil yellow, while manganese will elicit pink and other Easter egg-like palettes.
The Dinosaur Bone Rings Collection
Once the gembone is cut to expose the glassy surface of the dinosaur fossil, the stone is then ground up so the bone can be set into the ring. The dinosaur bone wedding bands are coated with a protective resin material, and the result is a beautiful, one-of-a-kind ring.
Check out the Arthur. Fossilized slate grays and blues are beautifully inlaid and strike a balance between rustic and sophisticated. You can pair the dinosaur bone with durable tungsten carbide for extra protection from the elements.
Then there is the Ray. This ring is almost what you would expect dinosaur bone to look like: reptilian, scaly, it’s like nature’s camouflage. Not to mention, this is some OG camo we’re talking about here. It is millions of years old, after all.
Dinosaur Bone Wedding Bands: Care & Considerations
Dinosaurs were fierce, dangerous creatures that ruled the world once upon a time, but even they were wiped out by a giant asteroid. Your dinosaur bone ring is equally amazing, but it can be damaged. Like other fossilized stones, it should not be exposed to corrosive or acidic materials, such as rubbing alcohol.
For proper cleaning and maintenance, use mild soap and warm water to keep your dinosaur bone wedding band looking as bright as it did 68 million years ago. Also try to avoid smashing it against hard surfaces, as the fossilized stone could chip. You don’t want to be responsible for the next dinosaur (bone) extinction, do you?
