Named after the giants of Greek mythology, titanium is lightweight, extremely strong, hypoallergenic, noncorrosive and dent resistant. It is stronger than steel, but 45% lighter in weight. In the military, it is used with tanks, submarines, combat helicopters and propellers. In the medical world, it is used for surgical instruments and implants. The natural color of the metal is between platinum and white gold when polished.
About the Color:
Anodizing or adding color to titanium is the process of using electricity to create a thin layer of metal oxide on the surface of the titanium. The thickness of the titanium oxide layer changes the wavelengths of light that are reflected from its surface, altering its color. Color on metal is a fun, unique and interesting way to create contemporary jewelry. The anodized color does scratch on abrasive surfaces. Rings are meant to be worn every day and will develop an antique finish, tarnish or fade over time. If you are concerned about keeping your band looking brand new, I offer refinishing and re-anodizing of colors, no extra charge. You can also request to have any of the rings listed in my shop made without color.
Sizing is so important. You will be wearing your band forever, so take the time to have it sized properly. There are two options. First, you can order a reusable ring sizer from my shop for $3.50. I would recommend choosing the ring sizer gauge that fits snug over your knuckle. I can make the necessary adjustments according to interior fit and ring width. A comfort fit ring will fit and feel a little looser than the plastic ring sizer. Fingers tend to shrink and swell from morning to night , in cold and warm weather and from weight gain or loss. It is best to measure once in the morning and once at night to get a feel for the shrinking and swelling. You will need to pick a size in the middle. Also some people like a tight fit and others a looser fit. The second option is to visit a jeweler. I suggest being sized by a 2 different jewelers to confirm an accurate size and to get a feel for ring width and fit if possible. I can make rings in sizes 1-21 including quarter and half sizes. Titanium cannot be soldered, which means it CAN NOT be resized. I guarantee my bands are made to perfection. If the size given to me is incorrect, I will need to remake the band. You will be responsible for 50% of the sale price, plus shipping. Please contact me immediately and I will start working on your new band.

Please follow this link to find the ring sizer I sell in my shop:
I can engrave the band(s). The engraving is $3.00 per character. For the font, I use Block (uppercase) and Upright Script (upper and lower case). The font height can be 1mm or 2mm depending on the size of the band. Single or double hearts are also available. If you request engraving on an anodized surface , the engraving will be cut through the color exposing the natural color of the titanium. If you request your ring(s) to be re-finished in the future the engraving cuts will be anodized the same color of your ring(s). Kindly convo me and I will set up a custom listing or use the link below.
Turn Around Time:
Scheduling is based on a first come first serve basis. Please refer to the top of my Etsy Shop Home page for current turn around times.
I offer a lifetime warranty for all of my bands. I guarantee the highest quality and craftsmanship. If, for any reason, you are not satisfied with your purchase, I will be happy to return your money upon receipt of the band. Kindly notify me within 30 days after receiving the band.
Caring for Titanium:
Soapy warm water and a cloth is all you need. DO NOT use toothpaste, strong detergents or chemicals. I recommend not wearing your band at the beach or while doing manual labor. Remove your band when using abrasive materials, as it can damage the color and/or finish.
Frequently asked questions:
1. Will the color come off?
All rings that are worn everyday will scratch and dull over time. Anodized titanium is considered a surface finish, like a mirror polish, matte or satin finish. Surface finishes are susceptible to being scratched. If you wear your rings while working with your hands, washing dishes, gardening or playing with sand at the beach, the finishes will scratch off. Although titanium is very strong, the color or surface finish can scratch, dull and fade over time. If this happens, you can send me your band(s) and I will retouch the color and refinish your band, no charge. This is a service I give to all of my customers. You can send your ring(s) to the address below. Please notify me that you are sending your ring(s) to be re-finished.
