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
Thuya Burl varies in color from orange to red-brown, with many tightly arranged ‘eyes’. It grows from knot clusters of the roots of the Thuya tree. The Thuya tree is a small tree that has the ability to regrow itself from a stump, giving it the ability to regenerate after wildfire. We are currently phasing this wood out from our selection as the supply is too limited and rare, making it a limited supply item.
