Biojewellery: Designing rings with bioengineered bone tissue.

Bone tissue cultivated outside a patient’s body will soon be used in reconstructive surgery. As the bioscience behind this application develops, the promise of the technology provokes curiosity and speculation about alternative uses. Biojewellery explores such an alternative, providing couples with a symbol of their love. Biomedical engineers, designers and clinicians set out to create unique biojewellery rings for couples. Bone tissue was cultured in a hospital laboratory, using cells from chips of bone donated by the couples during wisdom tooth extractions. The bone was combined with silver to create the rings.
