How To Pick Titanium Jewelry
For many decades now, gold, silver and platinum are the mainstays of the jewellery industry. But that dominance is going to be challenged with the rising popularity of titanium jewellery. Titanium has a brilliant white lustre, a subtle rainbow sheen, and is stunning to look at and comfortable to wear. Therefore it’s hardly surprising that more people are discovering its beauty daily.
One of the big benefits of wearing titanium jewellery is that it’s strong. It’s stronger than steel, and so is much superior to gold, silver and platinum in this respect. You can wear your titanium jewellery all the time, regardless of what you’re doing, and don’t have to worry about it getting scratched or dented.
The strength of titanium also means that it requires hardly any upkeep. The softer metals like gold and platinum need to be polished regularly in the event you would like to keep them looking their best. Titanium, however, only needs an occasional wash to remove finger marks or soil, and it’s as good as new again, stunningly white.
In addition to being strong, titanium is also non-corrosive. This means that salt water and cleaning compounds don’t damage titanium. You don’t need to take off your jewellery and hide it under your beach towel at the beach any longer. Just leave your titanium jewellery on, and it will be fine. Make sure it’s not loose, though!
If you choose a simple style of titanium jewellery, it can be worn with almost any outfit to any event. Want to dress up a little black dress? Choose the comparison of titanium. Something simple to wear with your blue jeans? Titanium is stylish but casual.
For those with sensitive skin, titanium jewellery is an absolute necessity. It’s hypoallergenic, so it doesn’t irritate your skin. Many people who wear gold, silver and platinum end up with skin rashes or discoloured skin from the alloy. They’re either allergic to those special metals, or into the nickel and zinc used in alloys. But titanium can be worn without any concern at all.
Another good thing about titanium jewellery is that it’s very individual. Unlike chunky gold bracelets which seem to be on each wrist these days, titanium is still the new kid on the block. So you will find plenty of friends drooling over your most recent piece of jewellery, admiring its beauty, because they’ve never seen anything like it before.
If there’s a downside to titanium jewellery it’s, it hasn’t become widely available yet, which makes it difficult to purchase. Many local jewellery stores now carry some titanium jewellery, but usually only a small selection. You can ask to see their catalogue, and hopefully, find something you enjoy they can order for you.
The other option is to shop online. There are plenty of titanium jewellery stores on the internet, so it’s easy to look around and find the kind of jewellery you like for the best possible price.
If you like to be ahead of the audience, and maybe be a little bit individual, then titanium jewellery is certainly the right choice for you. Gold, silver and platinum have been around for quite a long time, and so have nothing new to offer. Titanium jewellery, however, is quickly becoming the rage, so get in early and buy yours now.
