About Titanium 

Basic Facts
The Element Titanium is defined as a strong, low-density, highly corrosion-resistant, lustrous white metallic element that occurs widely in igneous rocks and is used to alloy aircraft metals for low weight, strength, and high-temperature stability. The word Titanium originates the Greek word titanos meaning Titans from Greek mythology.  The Titans were depicted as a race of powerful deities whom are descendants of Gaia and Uranus that ruled during the legendary Golden Age.

Titanium was discovered over 200 years ago by Reverend William Gregor in Cornwall and its original name back then was Menachite. Titanium got its current name given to it by a German chemist named Dr. Martin H Klaproth who named it after the Titans in Greek mythology. It took klaproth years to industrialise his new found element because the technique of isolating the titanium from its ore was unknown.
 

Titanium is mainly manufactured in Russia and United States but is also produced in Japan, England and China.

Titanium as Jewelry
Titanium is now widely used in jewelry industry because it has an extremely high strength to weight ratio, is hypoallergenic, and looks extremely beautiful when polished.

Titanium jewelry and ring will never tarnish, and it is 100% compatible with the human body, not producing allergic reactions, skin irritations or discoloration of any sort, making it the ideal metal for those with sensitive skin. This is true for all grades of titanium. Therefore, titanium is considered far more superior to traditional jewelry metals such as gold, silver and platinum. We primarily use it in rings that have stones or gemstones set directly into the titanium.

 

Aircraft Grade vs. Commercially Pure (CP) Titanium
We believe that those considering buying titanium rings are interested in the metal because of its light weight, resistance to corrosion, and most importantly, for its strength. Much to the despair of other manufacturers claiming the contrary, the fact remains that these higher alloys exhibit higher tensile strength and resistance to demanding wear. Aircraft Grade Titanium requires more labor to create an outstanding piece of jewelry as opposed to the CP Titanium. The amount of work and craftsmanship that is put into our rings makes them of exceptional value and more precious than gold.
