Titanium jewelry has long been touted as an inexpensive alternative to precious metals; a position that, while positive, has also lead to some not-so-positive connotations. Though it shines like any gold or silver, titanium’s humble beginnings have painted it as a bit of a pariah in the fashion world.
However, the tides are changing.
No longer is titanium just the smart choice for budgeting brides and grooms, but a must-have accessory for those with an acute taste for couture. With design gurus like Glenn Spiro and Ileana Makri, as well as various luxury jewelers embracing the durable metal, titanium is finding its way into high-fashion circles and out onto the runway.
So what makes titanium so exciting? Simply put – its versatility.
