Titanium Rings: What kind of metal is Titanium?
Titanium rings: Titanium was first discovered by the priest William Gregor in 1791 who in fact did not know what it was until 1795, when an Austrian chemist named Martin Heinrich Klaproth identified it as a new element. The element got number 22 and is called Titanium after the Greek Gods – The Titans.
Titanium is a naturally occurring element found in the earth’s crust and other ‘M’ class planets. Some sources say Titanium is the sixth most abundant element, others say the ninth.
The process of producing Titanium is a very technical process. The short version is to break it down and separate the titanium from the surrounding elements which leaves a sponge-like material, which then cast before a ring can be made out of it.
Titanium rings and jewellery has increased in popularity in recent years and is found in many modern styles. Both men and women appreciate this rugged metal and titanium rings. Titanium rings and jewellery are made by advanced machines that carefully cut and hone perfectly shaped pieces.
To resize titanium rings is not easy, so be sure to check your ring size a second time before you order so that you get the right size. The rings can normally be resized to one size bigger or smaller. Titanium Rings do not get worn or discoloured to the same extent as many other metals. Deep sea divers and surfers like titanium rings because they have high corrosion resistance to salt water.
