Forever Strong: Titanium Wedding Bands
I am Ti-tan-i-um!
(Admit it…you just sang that, right?)
Remember the Titans
Titanium has become the ultimate symbol of strength, and rightly so. Stronger and lighter than steel and extremely resistant to corrosion, this lustrous silver-grey metal was named after the Titan gods of Greek mythology. Larger than the mountains they used as thrones, the Titans were mighty, powerful rulers who fought hard and loved hard.
The beauty of the metal, combined with the symbol of its enduring strength, makes titanium a powerful choice for a wedding band.
Strong & Versatile
The metal of the Titans has changed the course of history since its use during WWII to build lighter, stronger aircraft, ships, and weapons. Since then, the potential of this resilient metal has changed the way we manufacture medical equipment, sports gear, factory machinery, and more. What was once built from steel could now be made stronger, lighter, and outlast a lifetime.
This is why wearing a piece of this super-metal on your finger is the perfect symbol of the power of your commitment and love.
The Style of Strength
Titanium wedding rings come in a variety of widths, styles, and designs, from classicly simple to intricately ornate, from modern to contemporary. The color of titanium can vary from a dark gunmetal gray to a lighter silver-gray, depending on the finish and other treatments. The metal can be polished to a high shine or brushed to a matte finish. It can be combined with other materials, such as gold, inlaid hardwood, carbon fiber, tantalum, and more. Titanium can also be engraved or set with diamonds or other gemstones. There’s no end to the unique, personalized possibilities when creating a titanium ring, and at Jonathan’s Jewelry, we’re ready to help you explore.
One of the largest allures of Titanium is its durability. It has the highest strength-to-density ratio of any metallic element. Titanium is incredibly resistance to scratches, dents, corrosion, and tarnish, which will ensure that your ring stands up to the rigors of daily wear and will always look as good as the day you said, “I do.”
Titanium also has the benefit of being more lightweight than other metals, such as gold and platinum, making it comfortable to wear.
And lastly, titanium is hypoallergenic. Unlike Kryptonite, titanium is unlikely to weaken its wearer.
Abundance = Affordability
If you’ve gotten this far on your titanium education, you might be wondering, with all of it’s incredible benefits, why are titanium rings so inexpensive?
It all comes down to availability and demand.
According to expert Matthew J. Donachie, “Titanium is the ninth most abundant element and the seventh most abundant metal on the planet.” Because its so widely used in so many fields, it’s extremely available. And because it isn’t rare, it isn’t expensive. Compared to hard-to-aquire precious metals, a titanium ring offers incredible personalized style at a significantly lower cost.
If you’re getting married, you’ve chosen to make a commitment to last a lifetime and beyond. With titanium, your wedding ring will endure as long as your love. Visit Jonathan’s Jewelry today and let us help you design your perfect forever.
