Agatized dinosaur fossils are used in order to create the unique style and look of our dinosaur bone rings. In order to create the ring, the original form of the fossilized bone is either replaced or re-mineralized with compounds such as agate, opal, jasper and chalcedony. With this process, it creates a beautifully patterned dinosaur bone inlay that has become extremely popular for men and women alike.

Zirconium is easily one of the most popular choices of metals when it comes to alternative colors.

Zirconium is naturally a silver-grey color. In order to create its black coloring, when heating zirconium, a layer of black oxide forms upon the metal. Though it is very thin, this black layer is much harder than raw zirconium, allowing the metal to become more durable

Elysium Rings are made from real crushed diamonds that are engineered into an extremely durable, scratch-resistant material. Diamond crystals are fuzed together under extreme heat and pressure and pressed so tightly that light cannot pass through. This process gives Elysium Rings its signature black color.

As hard as a diamond, because it is a diamond, Elysium Rings are a bold statement loved by all.
