Emerald City : Alternative Metals

Alternative Metals Used in Creating Stunning Men’s & Women’s Jewelry

The Space Age has brought us some exciting, alternative metals to use in the world of fine jewelry.

Titanium and Tungsten are the two alternative metals that are favored by Emerald City Jewelers.

Titanium is a lustrous, durable metal that was first used by the aerospace industry because it withstands temperature extremes like those found in space, and is stronger than steel, but 45% lighter.

As an alloy, titanium can be colored, but its natural metal color is a silvery gray.

Titanium is inert, so it does not react to skin acids or common chemicals.

It was this skin-friendly hypoallergenic quality of titanium that made it attractive to jewelry manufacturers, along with its ease of fabrication and resistance to rough wear.

All of these attributes make titanium an ideal metal for men’s rings, watches and sports jewelry that is likely to be knocked around or worn daily.

So next time you’re looking for durable and beautiful jewels that are ahead of the common fashion, visit Emerald City Jewelers and let us show you the variety of innovative styles available in a Space-Age alternative metals.
