Made to last a lifetime, Tungsten men's jewelry is a natural choice for those who want a resilient metal that shows little signs of wear. Very brilliant due to its tough and enduring qualities, Tungsten is a heavy metal and as a pure element it is hypoallergenic.
Another popular choice for contemporary mens jewelry due to its strength and durability, Titanium combines a beautiful look with the sporty ability to wear anytime. Titanium is completely hypoallergenic which makes it a perfect choice for those persons with sensitive skin.
Cobalt Chromium offers a new element to the alternative metal industry. Its platinum-look differentiates it from both tungsten and titanium. Cobalt is very scratch resistant and it is more scratch resistant than titanium, but not quite as hard as tungsten. Mens cobalt rings will not chip or crack. It is a light-weight and hypoallergenic metal and is a great choice in your mens jewelry collection.
This is not the same material as your "grandma's" ceramic. This is a space age metal-like product that is called ceramic because it is not like a metal. It is far beyond anything like the heated glass of ceramic class, although it is the same basic process. This ceramic is used in things like the new F-22 Raptor Attack jet, the ATF and on the space station. Ceramic mens jewelry has the same basic hardness and durability as Tungsten and both have a greater hardness than Titanium. This does not mean they will never exhibit wear and tear at some point. It simply means they are durable and long lasting items.
Many items in our mens jewelry catalog have been plated in colors such as gold, black, rose and chocolate brown. This IP Plating is a specialized process which fuses the color to the base metal in a vacuum environment. The IP plating actually becomes a part of the metal, ensuring a hard, durable finish and beauty that will last.
