Titanium is an element that is light, strong, and lustrous. In addition to industrial uses in aerospace and medical, titanium is a new alternative in men’s and ladies’ wedding bands. Titanium is as strong as steel, but is only 60% its density. It is strong, resistant to scratches and tarnishing, but lacks the heavy weight of platinum. It produces a very durable band which can withstand an active lifestyle. It is hypoallergenic and will not cause skin irritation or discolor.
Because of titanium’s hardness, is cannot be sized by most jewelers and is difficult to remove if the wearer’s finger swells due to illness or injury – special cutting tools may be required.
