princessbee1991:  They will not decompose. The cells in bone are dead, yes, but the extracellular matrix of bone is left behind. This is made up of collagen, calcium and hydroxyapatite – all stable. As far as wear and tear goes, it’s not going to be as hard or strong as gold or any other metals, so you’ll need to take more care as bone is anisotropic and can be more brittle in certain loading directions.

FutureDrAtkins:  It was $1,200 and was done in a giant opal. You can’t tell in the photo but it had so much color.  I tried it on and swooned. What a lovely Christmas gift!

FutureDrAtkins:  wow!! Thanks for the education! For me to hear something like this brings me joy because I just love science!! My favorite subject when I was in school, along with math 🙂 thinking of re-educating myself on a lot of things. Learning a lot about rings on this Bee site. So amazing how rings are made and diamonds are taken cared of with caution…so many gems and colored diamonds. Nice…

Awww, I think they’re a cute couple. It makes them happy and it’s not hurting anyone. 

It’s only a matter of time before someone on the Waiting boards posts a “SO went to the dentist- is he making my ring?!?!” thread   

Also, most people have 4 wisdom teeth- I smell a necklace & earring set for her next Christmas!

Ukulele4You:  Oh wowww, on an opal!? That sounds absolutely amazing. But it’s bad luck to buy yourself opals anyways, so you’ll just have ask for it as a gift then, huh 

princessbee1991:  NP! I used to be in bone research and switched a few years ago to something else. I think it’s such an interesting material 🙂

I hope she doesn’t have a career in the health field.

Ew. This reminds me of when Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton wore each other’s blood in vials around their necks.

It’s not something I would wear and it’s certainly unusual, but if it works for them then I think that’s great. I mean, there are few gifts more personal than something pulled straight out of the body.
