Kuro-Ti Rings

 
Kuro-Ti is made from two varieties of Titanium which are bonded together and twisted to give the unique pattern. The metal is heated, and the different Titanium alloys react at different rates to the heating process and turn colors at different times. Kuro-Ti is different from other similar materials such as Timascus or Moku-ti in the fact that once etched, the anodized colors lay down in the grooves and are protected from wear and fading.
