Pros: Hypoallergenic, does not crack under pressure, affordable.
Cons: Not as white as platinum, must be cut off in emergency, scratches easiest of all alternative metal rings.
This metal is versatile! You can give it different finishes or textures that make it stunning in presentation – all while keeping a low price! Titanium, like all jewelry metals, will acquire scratches through daily wear. These scratches are easy to see on new jewelry – however, over time a natural satin patina will be developed over the surface – making scratches almost unnoticeable. Protect your ring by removing it during activities that may subject it to abrasion or hard knocks. We recommend that you not wear any type of ring at the gym, when gardening, playing sports, or at the beach.
Titanium is a very lightweight but durable metal that does have the ability to scratch, which can be buffed out; it can dent but it should not crack, we use 6AL4 Grade 5 Titanium. It is the most commonly used alloy. It has a chemical composition of 6% aluminum, 4% vanadium, 0.25% (maximum) iron, 0.2% (maximum) oxygen, and the remainder titanium. It is significantly stronger than commercially pure titanium while having the same stiffness and thermal properties. Among its many advantages, it is heat treatable. This grade is an excellent combination of strength, corrosion resistance, weld and fabricability. This is the same Grade of titanium that is used in Biomedical Implants.
