Damascus steel is an ancient art form. This blacksmith alloy is made using two types of Surgical and Fine Stainless steel that are layered in 100 alternating layer and then worked. It is then twisted and folded to make different patterns. It was used in Japan originally to make blades for knifes and swords.
Black Zirconium rings get their signature color in a process different than anodizing. It is an extremely hard, smooth, and inert coating. Zirconium is slightly heavier than titanium, but is less than stainless steel. It is chemically similar to titanium.
