If you’re shopping for a new piece of jewellery, you will be overwhelmed with various choices, which can make choosing the right type of jewellery for you, a tricky decision. For some folks, the type of jewellery that they wear becomes tantamount to their identity. Sometimes the choice can come down to the material the jewellery is made from, so it is good to know the key differences, but for today we will take a look at Titanium jewellery.
Titanium was first discovered in 1791, in England. In comparison to the other metals available, Titanium is new to many industries and only recently used in new applications.
It was termed after the great mythical titans, an appropriate name for the strength of this metal. At the time, the technology for dealing with such a durable metal was not possible, so jewellery designers did not develop titanium until the later years.
Titanium is an abundant metallic element. It is lightweight, with a low density, great strength and high durability.
Titanium has been used not only in some aircraft parts, but to make golf clubs, watches and even wedding rings. Because of Titanium being a lightweight metal, it become popular for jewellery in the 1990’s, and in particular, for rings and watches.
Titanium is 100% hyper allergenic, which means that it will not cause any allergic reactions, discomfort or skin discomfort. It can actually offer you major health benefits, as well. By wearing titanium over different parts of the body has been shown to relieve pain from those areas.
Titanium is also not prone to discoloration, so your jewellery will look shiny and brand new for many years to come. In short, Titanium jewellery is very safe to wear.
Because Titanium is lightweight, it makes the rings comfortable and easy to wear in any sort of environment. Despite Titanium’s reputation for strength and its resistance to tarnishing, it is always a good idea to get your titanium piece polished by a professional, and keep your jewellery and watches clean, and stored correctly.
Titanium may seem expensive. However, titanium jewellery is actually very affordable. If you’re looking for a wedding ring that is just as attractive but less expensive that those made of gold or silver, titanium wedding rings are certainly recommended.
So, if you’re looking for a jewellery piece that is lightweight, attractive and relatively inexpensive, Titanium jewellery may be just right fit for you. Contact us today for your piece of this beautiful metal.
