Titanium Jewelry FAQs
Titanium Jewelry - Rings, Bracelets, Necklaces & More!
1. What color is titanium?
Titanium is a light-weight and strong metal is ranges from gray to silver in color. Polished titanium is very close to Platinum, just a few shades darker. Brushed finish makes titanium look a bit darker, so is sandblast finish, almost gun-metal color.
2. Does titanium come in different colors?
Titanium is a reactive metal that can be anodized in different colors by electrolysis or thermal treatment. Unfortunately this type of surface treatment is not permanent. An anodized titanium ring would look good initially, but quickly appear scratched and discolored as you start wearing the ring. We do not offer anodizing and only work with natural color titanium.
3. Do you offer Black titanium?
We do not work with black titanium. Among a variety of reasons, perhaps the most important flaw in black titanium is that the color is not solid. This is because black titanium rings are made of special grade titanium that produces a thin layer of black deposit on the surface when heat treated. The deposit is tough and somewhat scratch resistant, but thin. It will scratch off with time, showing white marks on black surface.
Black ceramic is the ideal alternative.
Please see our collection of black ceramic rings and
tungsten rings with black ceramic inlays:
Black ceramic is a revolutionary space-age
material. It is as light as titanium and as tough as tungsten
carbide. Black zirconium ceramic has a metallic appearance and
a solid black color.
4. What Grade of titanium do you use?
Titanium rings are available in Aircraft grade titanium Ti-64, super hard titanium Ti-662, and pure titanium Ti-999. More info: ti-grades
5. What finishes do you use?
6. Do your rings come with a “comfort fit”?
All our ring are made with "comfort fit Feature
7. Is a titanium ring scratch-proof?
Titanium is durable but it is not scratch resistant. Titanium will scratch just like any other metals. The difference is: on titanium (hardest grade Ti-6/6/2) scratches will be very shallow, just barely on the surface and can be easily buffed out. Gold and platinum rings will scratch much deeper. Also, with titanium you do not have to worry about deformation, nicks and dents, and the ring will retain its original form and design forever, even after multiple re-finishing.
Any titanium ring(s) that you buy from us carries with it a free re-polishing service.
If the ring(s) should become scratched you can send it back to us to be refinished.
This service is available twice a year for as long as you own the ring(s).

9. How do I clean Titanium Jewelry?
Titanium jewelry can be cleaned with warm water and a gentle soap such as baby soap or dish soap. Allow your jewelry to soak in the bowl of warm soapy water for several minutes before using a soft brush to scrub the jewelry. Once you have rinsed your titanium jewelry, it can dry it with a microfiber cloth. Products such as prepackaged jewelry-cleaning solutions can also be used during this process.
To polish your titanium jewelry between cleanings simply use a jewelry-polishing cloth to remove everyday residue and water spots.
10. Are titanium, tungsten and stainless steel different?
Stainless Steel - This light-weight metal is used for a wide range of products including wedding bands. Generally stainless steel rings are the least expensive when compared to titanium and tungsten jewelry. Stainless steel rings are more prone to scratches and may need to be replaced depending on care and use.
Titanium - When it comes to light-weight, stylish and long lasting rings, titanium has become a popular choice. This extremely strong metal is more scratch-resistant than stainless steel jewelry which results in a higher cost. Titanium rings are also more crack-resistant than the other categories and most titanium rings are hypoallergenic; this makes them ideal for individuals with skin allergies.
Tungsten - When compared to stainless steel and titanium, tungsten rings are the heaviest material which results in the strongest lifetime durability. Tungsten rings will hold their shape forever and are about four times harder than titanium. These rings are the most expensive out of the three categories.
11. How Long Will Titanium Jewelry Last?
Titanium rings are seven times stronger than popular white metals traditionally used for wedding bands or engagement rings. While it's recommended that your titanium ring be cleaned, polished and removed during extreme situations, this metal will never rust and resist fading. The anticipated longevity of your titanium rings is a lifetime.
12. Are titanium rings hypoallergenic?
Titanium jewelry has become a popular choice for individuals with sensitive skin due to the fact that titanium is nickel free which tends to be the source of skin irritation. Most titanium grades are hypoallergenic and will not irritate or discolor your skin during wear.
13. What type of jewelry is available in titanium?
Titanium metal is used for a wide range of jewelry including engagement rings, wedding bands, necklaces, chains, crosses, pendants, earrings and bracelets.
