Titanium is becoming an increasingly popular metal for men’s jewelry pieces. Titanium is admired for its unique properties including its lightweight nature, strength, its resistance to corrosion and its innovative addition to the jewelry industry.
Most men and women will choose titanium because of the style, durability and the fact that titanium is a hypoallergenic metal. Meaning titanium does not react with any skin types.
Titanium is as strong as steel and 45% lighter! It is a white/silvery metallic color.
If you are looking for something different to traditional yellow and white gold, titanium is a great alternative. Not only is it everything mentioned previously but also it is very affordable.
Gillett’s Jewellers also offers a unique ‘design your own’ titanium ring section. It allows you to choose your ring color, add gemstones, add inlay stripes and choose the ring width. It becomes your very own created jewelry piece at a very affordable price.
The different coloring of the titanium rings is caused by oxidisation. It is not paint, plate or pigment. Oxidisation occurs through a heating process that then at different stages will change the titanium to different colors.
