Titanium Rings FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions
Titanium is a space-aged material trusted by NASA and the aerospace industry for its strength and lightweight. Titanium wedding bands share the same durable properties that NASA has used for years in their space program and companies like Boeing have utilised for making large aircraft. It is with this attention to detail and commitment to long-lasting materials that each titanium ring from Tungsten World is made into the perfect forever wedding band.
Several times hard than gold rings, titanium wedding bands exhibit a superior scratch resistance and resilience to bending not seen in traditional yellow or white gold rings. At the same time, titanium wedding bands remain shatterproof and will not tarnish. In fact, titanium is well known for having the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal.
Titanium rings and titanium wedding bands come in a vast variety of styles, widths and sizes. Due to its inherent malleability, titanium wedding bands can be crafted into everything from brushed to high polished finishes, faceted to tension set styles, and precious metal inlay to diamond ring varieties, making the options almost unlimited for your wedding band.
Like their alternative metal counterparts, tungsten rings and cobalt rings, titanium rings are heavily sought after due to their durability. While the scratch resistance of gold rings greatly underperforms their premium prices, titanium wedding bands have a ruggedness that greatly exceeds comparable gold rings at just a fraction of the price. Below are some of the inherent benefits of selecting titanium wedding bands over the traditional gold rings available in jewelry stores:

Titanium is the element at 22 on the periodic table. As a transition metal, it is in a group with other familiar metals like silver, gold, platinum, tungsten and cobalt..
Discovered by William Gregor in 1791, titanium was named after the Titans from Greek mythology by Martin Heinrich Klaproth. As a raw element, titanium is both lustrous and highly resistant to corrosion.
Like Cobalt Rings, the titanium used in Titanium Wedding Bands is an alloy (Learn more about the differences between these two metals here, Cobalt vs. Titanium). By alloying titanium, a higher quality metal is created, accentuating the desirable attributes of natural titanium.
Titanium alloys are graded based on their quality and uses. The most common titanium grades for jewelry are Ti-64 - Aircraft grade titanium, Ti-662 - Super hard titanium and Ti-999 - Commercially pure titanium.
