“Who doesn’t want a ring made of dinosaur fossil?”

(LONG BEACH, Calif.) - Thorsten Jewelry, a leading manufacturer of alternative metal wedding bands for men and women, is proud to launch their newest collection of wedding bands inlaid with authentic dinosaur bone.  Yes, that’s right, dinosaur bone. 

After spending millions of years buried beneath the earth these dinosaur fossils become as hard as stone. Minerals slowly replace the bone over millions of years until it becomes one solid piece of stone. This type of dinosaur bone can take on a variety of colors based on its mineral composition. The fossils can be found in red, blue, pink and even green.
