Why choose titanium jewellery
Pure Ti2 Titanium
Only pure grades of titanium are used in the manufacture of our rings.
Experience has taught us that these (99.2%) commercially pure grades of titanium (Grades 1 to 4) have the best properties for our unique and varied jewellery applications. Grade 2 is the one we use most often and is the reason that we named our brand Ti2 Titanium.
Commercially pure grades of titanium are not as hard as many people imagine. This is one of the main reasons we as jewellers choose to work with these grades.
We are able to work the metal with the highest quality traditional tools available to us, while maintaining our unique hands on approach to its manufacture. In this way we are able to produce designs which are much more than simply machine made parts.
Strong Special Metals
Titanium is one of a group of special metals. These metals have characteristics enabling them to be used in the most demanding environments. Titanium possesses a number of the key attributes which makes it one of the metals of choice for industrial applications such as the Aerospace, Power Generation, Oil and Gas, Processing and Refining and Advanced mechanical engineering. Commercial pure grades of titanium have ultimate tensile strength equal to that of common steel alloys, but at a fraction of the weight.
Ultra Light Weight
This is one of titanium’s most unique properties. Titanium has the highest strength-to-density ratio of any metallic element. This means that we are able to produce some of the finest ring profiles available. The rings remain strong and round but extremely light and comfortable to wear.
High Corrosion Resistance
Resistance to corrosion is a very important factor in your choice of wedding ring, after all, it should be expected to last a lifetime. But whether it’s a wedding ring, a gift to a close friend, or an individual fashion statement you should expect the best performance from your choice of materials.
Titanium is unaffected by seawater, chlorine and many other chemicals. Only the highest grades of the noble metals such as gold and platinum can match titanium’s excellent resistance to corrosion.
Titanium is hypoallergenic. In fact, it is rapidly replacing other surgical implants and surgical instruments since the body does not react to it. Titanium is biocompatible, or non-toxic to the human body. All of our jewellery components are titanium making them totally hypoallergenic and kind to your skin.
*Some of our pendants are sold with sterling silver or nylon coated stainless steel chains, these are all stated on each product description. Please contact us if you need an alternative.
Add a Touch of Colour
As creative designers, we have always loved working with titanium because of one of its most amazing features; its ability to take on a whole spectrum of colours. The naturally occurring colourless oxide layer which forms on titanium can be altered by a process known as anodising.
This allows us to vary the thickness of the surface oxide layer, causing optical interference colours to become visible. Just like the colours seen in nature and those of a soap bubble or oil on water, the principle is the same. This oxide layer is reasonably robust and will not fade, but is liable to become damaged caused by abrasion. We, therefore, include colour in areas which are less susceptible to wear, especially on items such as rings and bangles.
As we make each and every ring in our own workshop in Wiltshire, UK, we are able to offer you the peace of mind of a re-sizing service on any of our standard range of plain titanium rings. (We make a small charge for this service).
In Case of Emergency
Because we only use pure grades of titanium for the production of our rings, we can confidently assure you that a ring needing to be removed from your finger in an emergency can be done using the normal tools available to a medical practitioner.
