Titanium Jewels





Titanium jewels: they are the last frontier of jewelry. Beautiful, but also difficult to make. That’s why ♦

Long live the titanium, that as key element in the aerospace industry has become synonymous with creative boldness and high technology in jewelry. What owes its success? Light weight, first of all: with a weight of less than one-fifth compared to gold, it allows large volumes and at the same comfort, especially for earrings and bracelets. In addition, those who associate titanium just at its sad original gray, are wrong: this metal can be dyed in bright and solid tones, like shamrock green or lacquer red, deep purple, electric blue. And whatever color obtained by a process of oxidation, unlike the electroplating of gold is much more resistant: not fading with time and is not likely to come off.

But this is not the only technical advantage: its extreme strength allows you to use less metal than gold and platinum for setting and to realize pavé very dense. Not surprisingly, the majority of titanium jewels are literally covered with stones. One of the first to experiment with this material in jewelry was Jar (Joseph Arthur Rosenthal) in the late eighties, and on the occasion of a retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, has created a collection of jewelry titanium and aluminum for sale inside the museum at affordable prices, from 2 to 5 thousand dollars. The fact that it is less expensive than gold should not mislead: its processing requires great skill and technical knowledge, then it can happen that some jewels are even more expensive than their cousins ​​made with more noble metals.

Also because they are usually embellished with precious stones, like those of Wallace Chan, the jeweler-philosopher of Hong Kong, or the Swiss Suzanne Syz, who has made titanium her signature. And yet the Pomellato’s openwork chosen to renew the Arabesque collection, or the delicate leaves of the Chopard’s bracelet with blue sapphire, the magnetic colors of the  pin shaped flower by Giovanni Ferraris or the slight frame of the brooch Michelle Ong, one of the few people who can boast a friendship with Jar. The are many examples, here a selection of the most beautiful. Monica Battistoni
