Titanium has been gaining popularity for use in jewellery over the past few years. Titanium bands are lightweight, hypoallergenic, and available in hundreds of styles. Read on to find out if titanium wedding rings might be the right choice for you.
Titanium is an extremely strong material, with a high resistance to corrosion. It is extremely lightweight, but hard and durable. This makes it ideal for use in aircraft, armour plating, naval ships, spacecraft, and missiles, as well as industry, architecture and jewellery.
As an inert metal, Titanium is hypoallergenic. It will not cause a reaction even in people with the most severe metal allergies.
Titanium wedding rings are ideal for people who work with their hands, and expect their ring to take some hard knocks during the day. The tensile strength of titanium makes it resistant to dents, while its low density makes titanium wedding rings comfortable to wear. Its resistance to corrosion means it is ideal for those who work with chemicals or water.
Titanium wedding rings are much less expensive than rings made from precious metals. It is a budget friendly option that is also stylish and durable. You can even get titanium rings inlaid with gold or other precious metals, or set with diamonds to add a luxury feel while retaining the benefits of the material.
There are so many styles and designs of titanium rings available to suit your taste and budget. They are available alone, or as a set for a couple. You can also purchase titanium rings with creative designs, engravings, and even moving parts. Titanium can be heat treated to create oxide layers which show up different colours depending on the temperature used. This is another way that your titanium ring can be customised to suit your style.
Titanium is extremely strong and resistant to breaking, however this does not mean that it is scratch resistant. You can expect your ring to show signs of wear as any hard object such as a door handle or a stair rail can cause scratches.
Due to its strength, titanium rings are hard to resize. Sometimes they cannot be resized at all and must be remade. This is worth noting if you plan on using titanium for your wedding band as you will want to continue to wear the ring for the rest of your life.
To be sure of getting the perfect fit, you can always try a sample ring before you buy!
The price of a titanium ring can vary depending on size, style, addition of other materials, and design. Our plain titanium rings start at £76.84 for the lightest ring in the smallest size. Addition of specialised finishes, more metal, and things like engraving all add small amounts to the cost.
Since they are relatively inexpensive in comparison to precious metal rings, lots of people opt to purchase a titanium ring alongside their precious metal wedding band. This ring is intended for daily wear, work wear, or for taking on holiday. Titanium is ideal for this because of how resistant it is!
