GENTLEMEN and ladies
Do you wish you had a hard wearing, scratch resistent ring that you don’t have to worry about?
Then Titanium could be the metal for you.
Titanium is harder to scratch or dent than gold. It won’t bend out of shape over time and despite its hardness, any scratches are easy to remove.
A Titanium ring will not tarnish or change colour over time.
It’s as strong as steel, but as light as aluminium. Yet it’s easy to cut if it needs to be removed.
Resistent to corrosion, it’s ideal for people whose work or leisure activities involve salt water. Titanium has an almost magical quality – whenever it comes into contact with oxygen it has the ability to heal itself.
Titanium is a naturally occurring element in the earth’s crust. It has all of the strength of steel but is 56% lighter.
A piece of jewellery made from Titanium has an interesting `pedigree’ as it is a metal of choice for warships, aeroplanes, missiles and even space ships!!
Perhaps you think you can’t wear rings because you have a skin allergy.
Titanium is the most hypoallergenic element known to man so it’s unlikely that it will cause an allergic outbreak on even the most sensitive skin. This is why it’s used for surgical medical implants.
You can add to the uniqueness of your ring by having it engraved with an inscription or design, or include colour through a process called colour anodisation.
You can even add a gem for that extra sparkle.
EMBELLISH YOUR SILVER OR TITANIUM RING WITH A BLACK ZIRCONIUM BAND
Mark recently made this beautiful, contemporary ring for a client. It’s made from silver with a black zirconium spinner section.
Like Titanium, Black Zirconium is durable and will maintain its sleek, black look over time. From satin to gloss, the colour will not fade. Also, it has the added benefit of being able to be inscribed.
Black Zirconium can withstand most knocks and scratches – rock climbing, gardening, a work out in the gym. Whilst your Black Zirconium ring isn’t indestructible, it will withstand more knocks than precious metals.
It’s so durable it is even used in nuclear reactors!
