These Australian-made Zirconium rings are a bold choice for the fearless groom-to-be. The black finish can be offset with yellow, rose or white gold to create a strong contrast.
Zirconium (Zr) is an element found in the mineral Zircon. It's a very strong, malleable, ductile, lustrous silver - grey metal.
Zirconium has a very strong resistance to corrosion and heat, and is not affected by acids or alkalis. When heated under controlled conditions, it develops a black surface oxidation, which is extremely durable and has a natural sheen.
Zirconium is similar to Titanium, it's lighter than steel and its hardness is close to Platinum. It's hypoallergenic and non-magnetic. Zirconium can't be soldered using traditional jewellery soldering techniques. If your ring is damaged while you're wearing it, it can be cut off the finger using standard cutting tools.
