Are Titanium Wedding Bands for Men Still Attracting “Early Adopters?

By: JMR


It wasn’t’ that long ago that titanium wedding bands for men were “setting the world on fire” with record sales at online jewelry stores, but since then the jewelry world has seen the launch of other industrial metals for wedding bands, such as cobalt chrome, white tungsten and stainless steel. How have these recent additions changed the market for titanium rings? Is titanium still the metal of choice for tech-savvy early adopters?
Well, according to a few of my favorite online jewelry stores, titanium is just as hot as ever. Because it serves a specific niche so well, it is doubtful that other “alternatives” will greatly impact its success. That’s because titanium wedding bands for men are a lot different than other metals, even the other industrial types. Whether you’re buying a Benchmark designer titanium wedding band or a non-designer titanium ring, the quality of this metal cannot be beat.

Despite its extreme durability and strength, titanium is much lighter than other metals. For men who don’t enjoy wearing jewelry, particularly rings, a titanium ring is the perfect compromise. Men who try on titanium rings often marvel at how light they are, and how much more comfortable they are for everyday wear. All of the Benchmark designer titanium rings are made from premium Aircraft Grade titanium, and even non-designer titanium is made from TA-2 quality, which is just one quality level down from aircraft grade.

Why is titanium so attractive to trendsetters?

An article I wrote for this site a few years ago, “Why Men’s Titanium Wedding Rings are perfect for “Early Adopters,” attracted attention from the Edward Mirell Company, another well known designer of cutting edge titanium rings and titanium wedding bands for men. They wholeheartedly agreed that titanium-wearers are somewhat “different” than the average men’s jewelry buyer, which explains why they’ve jumped on board so quickly with this trend. People who adapt easily to new technologies - such as iPads, HDTVs and cloud computing - usually do so because they see the immediate advantages of changing their habits. Men who choose titanium fall into the same category; they are practical, forward-thinking and ready to try new things.

If you’re reading this and thinking to yourself, “… but titanium wedding bands for men are not new,” you would be correct. But compared to most other wedding ring metals, titanium is still in its infancy. Until a few years ago, one would only be familiar with titanium if they had a prosthetic hip, or if they were in the business of making airplane propellers. Never would anyone have guessed that it would join the ranks of tungsten and stainless steel to become one of the hottest new jewelry metals to hit the fashion world in decades.

So why are so many people interested in titanium wedding rings for men?

For the most part, men choose rings made from a titanium alloy because it’s so much stronger than traditional metals. Known as the element “Ti” on the periodic table, titanium offers superb tensile strength, hardness, and durability while being relatively lightweight. Therefore, when the aircraft grade of this metal is used to make men’s titanium wedding bands, it is strong enough to withstand the rigors of daily wear. When you consider how much less expensive it is than gold and platinum, it’s no wonder men have gravitated to this extraordinary metal.
