William Henry uses the latest state-of-the-art casting equipment to create mesmerizing pieces. These cuff links are made with sterling silver and beautiful sections of the Gibeon Meteorite, which fell in prehistoric times in Namibia.
The fragments of the meteorite in the strewn field are dispersed over an elliptical area 171 miles long and 62 miles wide; it was discovered by the local Nama people and used by them to make tools and weapons.
In 1836 the English captain J. E. Alexander collected samples of the meteorite and sent them to London. There, John Herschel analyzed them and confirmed for the first time the extraterrestrial nature of the material.
As a purely natural material, the patterns may include small inclusions, distinctive and unique to each item we produce.
