Information about Titanium
Titanium is one of the toughest metals, used in the aviation industry due to its incredible strength properties and surgical tools due to its hypoallergenic qualities. In jewellery it has divided opinions as it is not a precious metal. However, it has been used to create beautiful pieces with vibrant colour - as an electrical current can be passed through the metal giving it hues right through the colour spectrum. As it is so hard it has to be machined and cannot be worked by hand.
The Element from the Periodic Table
Titanium is a versatile material in several other ways. For instance, it can be anodised. This means a current is passed through the metal which gives the surface a colour. Depending on the Voltage, different colours can be achieved. As it is such a hard metal, it is ideal for laser engraving, either inside or outside the ring. The only downside is that it cannot be cast for jewellery purposes.
