A new material for a new style of wedding bands. The wedding bands and rings made with tantalum from our collection are casual, incredibly durable, and have a beautiful intense gray color. They are made exclusively with tantalum or in combination with gold or carbon, with or without diamonds. All of them feature spectacular textures in their finishes. Tantalum is a strong and innovative material that leaves no one indifferent. These rings are particularly attractive to the most daring and unconventional individuals.
Tantalum rings are harder, have a darker gray color, and are three times heavier than similar rings made of titanium.
Just a few years ago, no one thought about buying a wedding band that was not made of gold. These bands, along with platinum bands, have always been leaders (and still are) as they are timeless metals. However, other alternatives have slowly emerged and gained popularity among couples. Thus, steel, titanium, and lately, "dark" wedding rings have become popular thanks to increasingly sophisticated manufacturing techniques that produce high-quality pieces, and the trend of using more "technological" materials in jewelry.
This combination of trend and excellent quality has made tantalum an increasingly used material in the making of wedding bands, becoming an attractive alternative.
- Tantalum is a relatively new metal, discovered in 1802, and is one of the rarest elements in our solar system. Initially used in medical implants for being 100% hypoallergenic, it has only been used in jewelry for a few years. It has a beautiful anthracite gray color with bluish tones.
- The tantalum used in the production of wedding bands is not an alloy or coating but pure metal. It does not rust or change color. Its dark color will remain over time and combines exceptionally well with diamonds or other materials like gold.
- Its extremely high melting point of 3000°C, density, and hardness make it difficult to work with, but these same qualities make it one of the most scratch-resistant metals, making it an ideal material for wedding bands that are subjected to daily wear.
The rings and wedding bands made of tantalum that we showcase in our collection are German-made, from top global brands such as TeNo and TitanFactory - the most prestigious titanium jewelry factory - among others. They are crafted under strict quality controls using the finest titanium and cutting-edge technology. They are a clear example of the prestige that "Made in Germany" products enjoy.
Comparing the "new" materials: zirconium, titanium, tantalum, carbon, or steel:
- In terms of color: Carbon is black, and zirconium can be black. Tantalum has the darkest gray, followed by slightly lighter gray of titanium. Natural zirconium and steel are of a lighter gray color.
- In terms of weight: Carbon is the lightest by far. Next is titanium, followed by zirconium, steel, and the heaviest is tantalum.
- In terms of resistance to scratches: Tantalum is the hardest. Next is zirconium, steel, titanium, and carbon.
- In terms of price, considering the difficulty of working with them: Steel is the most affordable. Next is titanium, carbon, zirconium, and tantalum.
- Carbon, titanium, tantalum, and zirconium have excellent thermal conductivity, allowing them to quickly adjust to the skin's temperature.
- All of them are highly durable and resistant to breakage.
- Due to their manufacturing method, it is not easy to adjust the size of these rings once they are made. Only in the case of tantalum or zirconium rings, the size can be modified by one or two sizes. However, occasionally the manufacturer accepts making a new ring at a special price if it needs to be made larger or smaller.
Both on our website and in our physical store -dedicated exclusively to engagement jewelry and wedding rings- we showcase a wide assortment of models made with gold, platinum, carbon, titanium, steel, tantalum, zirconium, silver, etc.
