Superconductor is a material made of titanium-niobium that are insulated with copper to form a large cable. Amazingly, a single cable of Superconductor material can become an intricately detailed statement piece; this is achieved by cutting the cable at an angle creating a one-of-a-kind pattern on a unique ring. With its two distinct color schemes – light or dark – each ring has its own alluring design that stands out from any other jewelry.
Superconductor is a truly revolutionary material! With the perfect combination of metals and extreme cooling, they can conduct electricity with nearly no resistance. This amazing ability allows huge amounts of power to be transferred without overheating and allows it to be used in extremely powerful electromagnets! It's this magnetic production that leads us into groundbreaking technologies like MRI machines, particle accelerators and mag-lev trains: even the mighty Large Hadron Collider has 1200 tons of Superconductor cable running through its main ring.
Superconductor consists of two types of metal: Niobium/Titanium and Copper.
Niobium/Titanium (Nb-Ti) is an extraordinary metal alloy that shines a beautiful color, makes for durable jewelry and won't cause allergic reactions. Aiming to make it even better, our team has used its proprietary process to accelerate the natural oxidation of Nb-Ti - creating something uniquely spectacular: Darkened Niobium Titanium – with rich dark hues that are almost as black!
Copper has been with us through countless ages of humanity; it's the trusted metal that we have turned to time and again. Jewelry made from copper was even discovered dating back over 11,000 years! From jewelry pieces in ancient civilizations to modern-day applications, this red-hued element is truly timeless.
Wear & Care
Superconductor rings offer a unique look, but maintaining their appearance requires special care and attention. Whether the ring is etched or natural, avoid exposing it to harsh environments or corrosive chemicals. Over time the copper will develop a natural patina that is part of the appeal for many when it comes to copper jewelry. To bring out its original luster at home you can use warm vinegar/salt/water cleaning solution as well as other tried-and-true copper cleaners.
Customization & Personalization
With Superconductor rings, the customization possibilities are almost limitless! Both our Standard Superconductor and Darkened Superconductor have a wide variety of ways to be combined and configured either as the main material, as an inlay, or as a sleeve. Design patterns can also be used to provide an awe-inspiring look that can't be beaten, but be aware that some of the more intricate patterns can be obscured by the natural pattern on the Superconductor. With our Ring Builder can personalize your Superconductor ring to make sure you get the masterpiece you deserve!
What creates the pattern on Superconductor Rings?
The Superconductor cable is cut at an angle, showcasing a gorgeous cross section of the rods and copper and creating a pattern that looks similar to snake skin. Create something unique and eye-catching with this one-of-a kind material!
What metals are Superconductor ring made from?
Our Superconductor rings marry two metals to create one powerful cable - the niobium and titanium form tiny rounds cables while copper fills in the gaps, resulting in an unbeatably strong bond that's unbelievably conductive.
Is Niobium hypoallergenic?
Niobium is sometimes used in commercial applications as a hypoallergenic alternative to nickel.
How long as Copper been used in jewelry?
Copper has been used for jewelry for millennia. Copper jewelry has been found dating back over 11,000 years.
