Titanium is an important element because of its many uses. It is found in nearly all living things, water, rocks, and soil. Its hypoallergenic properties account for its extensive use in medical implants. Titanium has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metallic element, making it an ideal choice for components in the aerospace industry and in military applications.
There are many different grades of Titanium alloy. Commercially pure titanium is a common choice for jewelry and is 99% pure Titanium. We use the alloy Ti6AL4V, an aerospace grade of the metal. This alloy is more expensive, harder to work with, but is much stronger than pure titanium. Titanium is also unique in that it will not fade or change color, maintaining its light grey color over time.
Titanium has a unique property allowing for anodizing in many colors. Anodizing is simply an oxidation of the metal which refracts light in bright, vibrant colors. The anodized layer is very thin and wears away quickly but in the right design (grooves and recessed areas) can stay looking nice over time. Click here to see the available anodized colors.
Wear and Care
Titanium rings need no special care. They can be worn in all kinds of environments and conditions. The metal will scuff and show wear over time but holds up to a great deal of abuse without cracking, breaking, bending, etc. It will not fade or change color.
Titanium rings need no special care. As long as they don't contain meteorite, they can be cleaned with regular jewelry cleaner. If your ring does contain meteorite please refer to the meteorite cleaning instructions.
Customization and Personalization
Titanium rings have many options for customization and can be combined with many materials, such as meteorite, hardwood, camo, carbon fiber, etc. Titanium rings are often personalized with such inlays, gemstone and/or diamond settings, laser engravings, and combinations of each. It is one of the most versatile metals that we offer and is often chosen for these reasons.
