Ring Quality and Hardness Scale
The Benefits of Titanium Jewelry
It has become fashionable for prominent jewelry designers to create rings, bracelets, and other jewelry using titanium. Titanium is an ideal metal for crafting jewelry due to its outstanding properties.
Strong and Lightweight
Titanium rings are incredibly strong and lightweight when compared to rings made of other metals, such as gold and platinum. In fact, because of its tremendous strength to weight ratio, titanium is used throughout the aerospace industry to construct critical aircraft and spacecraft parts. A typical jetliner can contain over 1 ton of titanium parts!
Titanium rings are extremely resistant to corrosive fluids, such as solvents and sweat produced by the human body. As a result, titanium lasts far longer than a similar gold or platinum ring that has been exposed to normal wear.
Titanium rings are also guaranteed not to cause skin irritation as naturally colored titanium is hypoallergenic. The medical industry utilizes titanium in a vast number of bio-implants as it is not rejected by the body as other metals would be. Titanium is well suited for a variety of jewelry, including pierced jewelry where an adverse reaction is even more likely with other metals.
Another positive quality of titanium is that it is highly scratch resistant compared to gold or platinum. While titanium can be scratched by exposure to hostile conditions (i.e. sanding, grinding), normal wear should not cause noticeable scratching. The grade of titanium and its finish also influences the amount of scratch resistance a piece of jewelry may have. In general, if a titanium ring was to become scratched, it could be refinished to restore its initial luster.
Safety and Emergency Removal
Titanium rings are created with safety in mind, as there is always the possibility that a ring will need to be removed in an emergency. Tests by various manufacturers have shown that titanium rings can be manually cut with a ring cutter within a matter of minutes, and much faster using an electric ring cutting device, such as those that many paramedics use.
