From the Height of Ancient Empires
What's so special about cobalt? Cobalt is one of the most ancient materials in jewelry and has been used in the trade for thousands of years. It was refined into a pigment by ancient Persian artisans as far back as 2,200 BC. It was also used by master craftsmen at the height of both the ancient Ming and Mayan Empires. Around the world, from the dawn of history to the present, cobalt has been a prized piece of luxury items and jewelry.
The Invention of Stellite
The use of cobalt may be ancient, but the cobalt and chrome alloys found in our Cobalt Rings come straight from the modern era. They were first developed in the early 20th century by metallurgist and automotive pioneer, Elwood Haynes. Haynes, in fact, discovered cobalt chrome while he was in the process of inventing the first stainless steel silverware. During his research into stainless steel Haynes realized that an alloy created from cobalt and chromium would be exceptionally durable and corrosion resistant. Haynes, who said the brilliance of the metal reminded him of the stars, patented his new alloy under the name stellite.
From the Auto Industry to the Cutting Edge of Medicine
Since Haynes, cobalt chrome has played a major role in the automotive industry, where its rust-proof properties have been used to manufacture long-lasting and precision parts. Over the past 50 years cobalt chrome alloys have also become an important tool of modern medicine, and the same cobalt alloys in our rings can be found in everything from dentures to artificial knees. They're critical components of most bio-implants and are also used in prosthetic limbs.
The Power of Cobalt at Your Fingertips
