Black horses in the jewelry industry-----titanium
Gold, platinum and silver have long been a common material for jewellery. However, in recent years, there has been a "dark horse" quietly rising and gradually occupying an important seat in the application of high-grade jewelry. It is: titanium metal.
Why is the status of titanium in jewellery so much improved? This is of course related to some of its own characteristics. Below, let us understand the characteristics of titanium.
The relative density of gold and platinum is 19.3 and 21.5, while for newly favored titanium, its density is only 4.5. In plain language, when making jewelry from metal, the weight of titanium jewelry is only about 1/4 that of traditional precious metal.
What does light weight mean? This means that in the design of sophisticated high-grade jewelry, the use of titanium as a material can greatly reduce the pressure on customers to wear high-grade jewelry, making the experience of wearing high-grade jewelry more enjoyable.
In the public's perception, the color of metal is relatively single. But for titanium, colorful is synonymous with it.
The original color of titanium is silver-white. However, placing it in the electrolyte through a certain amount of current, the surface will be electrolytically produced an oxide film, and by controlling the thickness of the oxide film can change the color, it can show a brilliant color. This colorfulness gives designers more possibilities.
Titanium metal is the only metal that has no effect on human autonomic nerves. It is known as "probiotic metal." Even friends who are allergic to metal can wear titanium jewelry. Therefore, titanium jewelry can be said to be the gospel of allergic patients.
