With This Bone I Do Thee Wed

What better way to show your lifelong commitment to another than by wearing a piece of their endoskeleton as jewelry? London scientists allow couples to extract chips of bone and infuse the samples’ osteoblasts into a baked glass ceramic composite. The bone/glass composite is then grown into a lattice structure closely resembling actual bone, which can then be carved into handsome rings. The symbolism is lovely (at least it strikes me that way) and so are the rings. A nice way to avoid supporting the slavery of the diamond industry, too.
