Titanium is about 1/4 lighter than gold and has stronger strength and corrosion resistance than any other metal .
It started 60 years ago when titanium was treated this way. It is cheaper than gold but difficult to handle and process, significantly high price metal. There were lots of attempts to make ring with this metarial, and experienced trial and errors. However, TATIAS strengthen the strength of titanium and released titanium ring at last.
Titanium jewelry specialist TATIAS is working hard to develop not only rings but pendants or bracelets, widening our titanium product line through creativity and challenging spirit.
