What is Titanium
Due to the metal’s strength, titanium opens the door to more design capabilities than other metals. Also because of its incredible strength, titanium jewelry is forged from a solid block of metal and, in the case of rings, cannot be resized. Titanium possesses great tensile strength but can be removed in case of a medical emergency. It is also 100% hypoallergenic.
This metal is also extremely resistant to corrosion and doesn’t react to salt water, sunlight or body chemistry. It is the only metal possessing the strength of steel yet a weight comparable to aluminum. Titanium is the fastest growing category in jewelry and the first new metal to enter the “Noble” metals arena in over 3,000 years.
While titanium can be found in various grades, primarily designed for use in industry and engineering, Borsheims uses only 100% pure titanium in its fine jewelry.
Although virtually indestructible, titanium can be scratched. Polishing with a soft cloth can retain its beautiful finish. As harsh chemicals and cleaning products can affect titanium, we recommend you remove your jewelry when using chemicals to reduce abrasions and prolong the polish. To clean your titanium jewelry, use a solution of warm water and detergent-free soap with a soft cloth.
