Which Metal Are You?

How To Choose the Metal for Your Ring

We specialize in alternative and exotic metals for rings and jewelry, but what does that really mean? It means that everything we do starts with the material. The shape of your ring, the way it looks, the way it holds up and ages over time, even the way it feels on your finger, is all determined by its base elements. The material, more than the design or anything else that goes into your ring, is a reflection of you.

So how do you know which metal is right for you? We've broken down some key facts about all of our favorite materials to help you decide.

Black Zirconium

Black Zirconium Ring ExampleBlack zirconium rings are the cool dark side to our lighter-colored metals, the ultimate yin to titanium's yang.

While not indestructible, the black parts of these rings will never fade or wear off. Get your black zirconium ring here.
