Choosing the Best Titanium Ring

What makes titanium special? It has numerous unique features that make it a great metal for jewelry rings. Aside from being very strong, titanium won’t easily acquire dents, bend or get scratches that are common in gold, silver and platinum jewelry. It's lightweight and comes in a wide variety of colors which other metals don’t have.

Pure titanium is a hundred percent hypoallergenic and allergy-free. What does this mean? Simply that it won’t irritate your skin or become discolored. It doesn’t react to sunlight, salt water or anything that the body produces. That’s why titanium rings are a good investment.

These qualities make it a good material for wedding rings that will be worn daily by couples for years to come. Indeed, titanium rings can be used with confidence since everyone can wear it without being afraid of adverse reactions to the body.

For men's titanium wedding rings the most popular widths are 5mm to 7mm. Men with slender fingers may opt for a slightly narrower width of 4.5mm while those with larger fingers sometimes like the wider 7mm width. To select the right width, don’t be ashamed to go to a local jewelry store to try different sizes. This will help you get the right fit. Make sure that the ring feels comfortable on your fingers.

In the absence of a titanium ring, you can use a gold ring  to check your preferred ring width. You’ll get the same size when you eventually get hold of a titanium ring with a soft rounded or flat shape.

For women, the 3mm to 4mm widths are the most popular. In selecting designs with inlay stripes or grooves, the minimum width available for the ring design is usually chosen by females.
