Black Zirconium Rings - Contemporary Ceramics
If you are looking for an alternative to platinum, titanium, or tungsten, a black zirconium ring offers the same durability in a stylish and incredibly unique piece of jewelry. The beautiful, rich, black color has a high gleam, and creates a striking band.
A black zirconium ring is made using a zirconium-based ceramic. This compound is one of the hardest, strongest ceramics on the market. A band made from this ceramic material is completely scratch and abrasion proof. The ceramic measures a 9 on the Mohs hardness scale and can only be scratched by a diamond. These ceramic rings will also resist any bending or breaking. In spite of the toughness of zirconium, it is also incredibly light weight.
