One of my favorite materials to make jewelry out of is meteorite. I think meteorite is the perfect material to create luxury jewelry because it is a truly rare and unique material. Each piece of meteorite jewelry, from Patrick Adair Designs, is one of a kind because the pattern on them is created by the iron and nickel in the meteorite crystallizing as they cool over millions of years.  The one-of-a-kind nature of our meteorite ring makes it a truly unique mens ring. Since every ring is unique they make an amazing mens wedding band. I mean who doesn't want a ring...

I decided to take a piece of brass and machine it into a hexagon shape, so that it would closely resemble his ice pick. I then...

To make this one of a kind ring, I used 5 different ingredients. To start out with the base of the ring, I used a proprietary blend of forged carbon fiber, that I got from the CEO, John Paul, of Carbon 6 Rings. One thing that is so great about forged carbon fiber is all the layers are blended together, so it is not likely to crack or split while I am cutting into it. I wanted to make this ring look like a tech/cyborg ring, so I wanted to add as much glow as I could to the design....
