Men's dinosaur bone ring in sterling silver by jewelry artisan Mark Hileman. The handmade dinosaur bone ring is inlaid with 2 different kinds of gem dinosaur bone- red-orange with black matrix and reddish brown with grey matrix. This gem dinosaur bone inlay ring measures 6mm wide and will be made to order in your exact ring size in 3 to 6 weeks. Just select your ring size from the drop down size menu and please include your phone number and due date in the "Note to Seller" box when ordering. Please read the note at the bottom of the page about finger size before ordering. The ring may also be special ordered in other inlay stones or in 14k white or yellow gold as well as stainless steel or Continuum silver for an additional charge. Contact me with your ring size for a price quote in gold. This ring is style #M200.

The Utah dinosaur gem bone in this ring came from the Colorado Plateau and was a living animal during the Jurassic Period around 144 to 208 million years ago. The dinosaur bone we use in our silver rings is usually referred to as “gembone”. It is actually not dinosaur bone but is a combination of minerals that replaced the bone structure over time. Dinosaur bone is found in a rainbow of colors with the webbing color and cell size varying greatly from piece to piece. The varying cell size and colors create some truly unique patterns and virtually one of a kind pieces of dinosaur bone jewelry. The fossilized dinosaur bone can be composed of many different minerals including agate, jasper and calcite. The gembone color is determined by the combination of minerals present when the fossilized bone formed. Some colors are more rare than others with multicolor cells in a nice pattern being the most sought after. High quality dinosaur bone has a hardness of 6-7 on the Moh’s scale. Top grade gem dinosaur bone is eventually going to become impossible to get because, as you might have guessed, they aren’t making it any more.

**I recommend upgrading to Continuum sterling silver for all wedding ring or heavy wear jewelry. It will be much more durable than standard sterling silver and should extend the life of your jewelry. Read more about this great new metal option here:

Finger Size
It is very important that you give us your correct size when ordering as it is difficult to adjust the size without using a laser welder and risking damage to the ring. The paper finger sizers you might find on the internet and print out are not accurate so please do not use them. We have experimented and found that they vary from a 1/4 size to a full size in error. Please visit a local jeweler (or two) and get your finger sized properly. We depend on you, the customer, to provide us with the correct size so please do not estimate or guess. Special order size rings are NOT RETURNABLE.

Frequently asked questions about TheHilemanCollection

It is very important that you give us your correct size when ordering as it is difficult to adjust the size without using a laser welder and risking damage to the ring. The paper finger sizers you might find on the internet and print out are not accurate so please do not use them. Tracing the inside of the ring and measuring it and measuring around your finger with a string are not accurate either. We have experimented with these methods and found that they vary from a 1/4 size to a full size in error. Please visit a local jeweler (or two) and get your finger sized properly. You should use a sizer that is similar in width to the ring you intend to purchase. The millimeter width of our rings should be included in the description.No guessing!
