A man went to the stars and back to make his engagement one of a kind - by carving a meteorite rock into a ring for his loved one.
The now happily-married husband, known 'Laporkenstein', posted a photo catalogue on Reddit of his project to show how he took the Australian meteorite, smelted it down, and then shaped it into the unique engagement ring to pop the question.
Now married with a 16-month-old daughter, he made the ring three years ago, but only posted it online this week for the world to share in his happy moment.
Then, using a finger-width cast to get the shape right, he bent the strip into a ring shape before soldering the ends together to create the unique engagement 'rock' - one that was truly out of this world.
His gallery of images showcasing the process on Imgur.com,which has already been viewed nearly two million times.
The rock was identified as a Gibeon meteorite, which means it has high carbon content - meaning it will remain rust-resistant for as long as it lasts.
And considering it has already been on a journey lasting billions of year, it will probably be around for quite a while.
