Titanium is an element on the periodic table. There are many different grades of titanium alloy. Ninety-nine percent pure titanium is a common choice for jewelry. We exclusively use the alloy Ti6AL4V, an aerospace grade of the metal. This alloy is more expensive and harder to work with but is much stronger than pure titanium.
Titanium is used in many applications across a diverse range of industries. It has a unique hypoallergenic property, making it popular in the medical industry for surgical implants. It also has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metallic element. Today, it is used in aerospace and military applications from naval ships and racing engines to spacecrafts.
Titanium is one of the most lightweight metals used in jewelry. Titanium rings are noticeably lighter than gold rings.
Titanium rings can be worn in all kinds of environments and conditions. The metal will scuff and show wear over time but holds up to a great deal of abuse without cracking, breaking, bending, etc. The color will not fade or change over time.
Cleaning: Titanium rings need no special care. These rings can be cleaned with regular jewelry cleaner, steam, or ultrasonic
Carbon fiber is a material with one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios of any product ever created.
Our carbon fiber rings utilize structural carbon fiber produced entirely in the United States. We source carbon fiber from local manufacturers whose products are found in high-tech applications varying from Formula 1 Racing and aerospace engineering to competitive cycling.
The raw material used to make carbon fiber is a mix of compounds, mostly consisting of organic polymers. This material is drawn into long strands, or fibers, and then heated in a controlled environment. The heat causes the atoms in the fibers to vibrate violently until most of the non-carbon atoms are expelled. The material left after the heating process is composed of thin tightly wound carbon strands which are then processed through stabilization, spinning, and weaving. For classic carbon fiber, the processing ends here with a resin application to bind the composite. For forged carbon fiber, the resin is applied after the processed carbon strands are cast into a random pattern to create a unique look. The development of forged carbon fiber allows further advancements in applications ranging from supercars (Lamborghini) to golf equipment (Callaway).
Carbon fiber rings are lightweight, strong, and durable.
