Etsy user Jewelry by Johan is selling a one of a kind ring made of three materials: 14k gold, meteorite, and dinosaur leg bone. The seller says that the dinosaur leg bone is genuine and comes from the Morrison Formation in Utah and dates back to the Jurassic Era.
Eerily charming and elegant, the Bloody Necklace from Lusasul combines just the right amount of sophistication with just the right amount of, well, dripping blood, to ultimately form quite the statement piece.
