Cobalt Chrome is the latest metal to hit the jewelry industry. These alternative metal rings are becoming a popular choice for wedding bands for their similarity to platinum in color, yet maintaining the durability of tungsten or titanium. Cobalt has a scratch resistant surface that will not fade or tarnish, nor will it break, shatter or chip. Cobalt Chrome is a unique blend that consists of 65% cobalt, 29% chromium and 6% molybdenum. It is a non-magnetic alloy exhibiting high strength along with corrosion and wear resistance.
Cobalt rings have color comparable to white gold and platinum jewelry. In addition, since cobalt rings are not plated with rhodium, which will eventually wear off, they will retain its premium white color forever. The bright white color is lighter than tungsten or titanium and is compared to platinum and white gold in appearance. The weight of cobalt chrome is similar to stainless steel. Most of our cobalt chrome rings will be made of aerospace grade cobalt. Cobalt chromium alloys are used extensively where great strength is required under incredible temperature. These applications include jet engine turbines, afterburners, and orthopedic or dental implants.
Your Cobalt Ring needs no special care and can be worn in any environment, during any activity where jewelry can be safely worn.
