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
Maple Burl is a rare growth of a common tree. It varies in color from honey brown to medium brown, and features a prized pattern of tight swirls in the grain. When polished, the wood has a slight sheen.
Each piece of hardwood varies slightly in character, color, and grain pattern, ensuring every wood ring is truly one of a kind. Wood’s raw, organic nature and inherent beauty is both rustic and refined. Its rich origin and exclusive markings speak to its distinctness amongst traditional metal wedding bands.
A hardwood ring begins as a solid block of hardwood. Our skilled artisans cut circles from the solid block and then secure it to the ring. After it’s been secured, the hardwood is sanded, polished and sealed with a medical grade resin.
This layer of resin protects hardwood rings from moisture and water damage, and scratching. It also acts as an insulator to the hardwood, protecting it from cracking in daily wear.
In the case of the resin being scratched, we stand ready to refinish the ring
