Titanium is an increasingly popular choice for wedding bands. Its’ name comes from the Titans of Greek mythology, renowned for their great power. It is a naturally silver-grey metal, and its greatest attribute is its’ nearly weightless strength. It is most notable in the uses of military, aerospace engineering, and sporting goods, which speaks to its credibility of durability. As for the feeling of a titanium ring on your finger – try one on for yourself and you might find that it feels as if it is not even there!Titanium Ring

Titanium and platinum are the only jewelry metals that are known to be bio-compatible, meaning that they are as a result hypoallergenic. Aircraft-grade titanium is frequently used in surgical implants and dental fittings, as titanium is the only known “foreign” material that living tissue will attach onto. For these reasons, titanium is highly recommended as a more inexpensive alternative to platinum for people who are prone to allergic reactions from jewelry.

Titanium RingAlthough its natural colour is a silver-grey hue, one of titanium’s special attributes is its ability to be anodized. Anodizing is a process where a coating is built up on the metal either by heating, chemical, or electrolytic means. This allows the titanium to take on different colours, making it a versatile choice for customization.
