WHY Cobalt Chrome:
Why should I consider a cobalt ring?
The biggest selling point of the cobalt is it’s color. It’s color
is pretty spot-on to that of platinum. The color is a natural
bright white and will not tarnish. Whereas titanium and tungsten
rings are a darker gray color, a cobalt ring is just as bright
white as a platinum ring and much whiter than a “white gold” ring.
There are many other benefits of a cobalt ring as well. It is
durable. Tungsten rings although much harder than a cobalt ring,
are brittle and can chip, crack or shatter upon a hard impact.
Granted, this is rare but it does happen. However, with a cobalt
ring this scenario will never happen. Cobalt rings are made of a
medical grade of cobalt and cobalt is used in the body for hip and
knee replacements. It’s hypoallergenic benefits are great for those
with allergy issues.
What is cobalt ring made of?
A cobalt ring is made of cobalt and alloyed with chromium.
Does a cobalt ring scratch?
Cobalt rings are scratch resistant, not scratch proof, so,yes, they
will scratch. But they don’t scratch nearly as easy as a titanium
ring, and definitely not in the category of a white gold or
platinum ring (which scratch very easily). However, the scratches
can be polished out by a jeweler.
Do jewelers like cobalt rings?
Most jewelers we have spoken with have embraced cobalt rings. One
of the main reasons is that now their wedding band shoppers can
purchase a naturally white colored wedding band for an affordable
price compare that to a platinum wedding band. So purchasing
matching sets is definitely within most folks budget. And the
cobalt wedding band will not scratch like a platinum band will. The
customers love the savings and the platinum look, while the jeweler
loves to be able to offer this new wedding band option to their
customers. Everybody wins!
How is a cobalt ring made?
Cobalt rings can be manufactured by using the traditional method of
casting, or by the more modern method of milling. Being that cobalt
is a hard material, it has a very high melting point of 2750 F for
casting. But because it can be cast this allows for more intricate
designs that are not possible by milling the ring.
