Bright-pink diamonds, deep-blue tourmalines and shimmering white opals - often precious stones are so beautiful, it's as if they've come from another world. In the case of David Yurman's new Meteorite collection jewels, however, they really have. In a bold and innovative move for the American jeweller, Yurman's latest collection for men has been created using 4 billion-year-old Gibeon Meteorite. Fusing science with style, multi-faceted rings, dog tags, cufflinks and chain bracelets have all been crafted from the unique stone, which was first discovered in Namibia in 1836, where it had fallen in prehistoric times. 

An avid collector of the world's most beautiful and interesting stones, David Yurman's son and Design Director, Evan Yurman, often travels the world in search of rare and intriguing specimens. Having learnt about the history of the Gibeon Meteorite and become captivated with its story, Evan made the bold move of incorporating this intergalactic material into a unique jewellery collection for men.

Consisting of 25 pieces, the collection is understated and minimalist. The crystal structure of the meteorite is revealed through carefully slicing the stone, a technique applied to rings, dog tags and chain bracelets to create flat and knife-edge surfaces. Amongst the uniform grey of the meteorite, Evan has added accents of rose, yellow and silver gold, and the occasional black diamond. In two statement rings, my favourite pieces in the collection, the meteorite has been faceted, revealing a subtly distorted shine that is, quite simply, out of this world.
