Titanium represents a more recent metal. Platinum is the 78th most frequent metal in the earth’s crust, while titanium, which was discovered in 1791 and called after the Titans of Greek mythology, is the ninth most frequent (which explains why platinum is so expensive). The 22nd element on the periodic table, titanium, is distinguished by its high strength-to-density ratio and resistance to corrosion. Typically, the titanium alloy used in jewellery is 90% titanium and 10% vanadium and aluminium. These percentages can change, though. Titanium wasn’t utilised in jewellery until the 20th century, and in the past 20 years, it has become increasingly popular as a material for wedding bands.

Although titanium is a grey-silver metal by nature, it may be anodized in different fashionable tones. Titanium can also be polished to achieve a “satin” surface, which gives the metal a more textured appearance. Titanium has a great corrosion resistance, so it does not tarnish readily and retains its shine, albeit it can oxidise at high temperatures. Titanium is substantially more durable than platinum in terms of scratch resistance, damage resistance, and shape retention. This is another reason why it’s typically impossible to resize a titanium ring.
