Titanium is an incredible metal with some rather unique characteristics. It is extremely lightweight but very strong, making it ideal for a range of industrial applications, and of course also ideal as a men’s wedding ring. On top of this, it’s a surprise to some that it’s quite a soft metal and because of this the answer is that; yes titanium rings do scratch.
The Gentleman’s Smith titanium ring comes with a uniformed neat brushed finish creating a matte look on the ring. You’ll notice very quickly as you wear it you’ll put your own scuffs and scratches in the ring. This won’t be from doing anything out of the ordinary, just while you wear the ring going about life. This does look a bit unusual at first as the new scratches really stand out against the uniformed brushed finish. As you continue to wear the ring however, over weeks and years it forms it’s own unique array of scuffs and creates it’s own character. Once the whole thing is covered in your own unique scuffs it takes on it’s own random brushed satin look rather than the uniform brushed finish it comes with. This is something we really like about our titanium ring because although all the rings start identical to one another, each customer ends up with a their own unique satin finish as they wear it in.
If this sounds like the ring for you then you can head over to the product page here. However whilst a lot of our customers opt for titanium, this isn’t to others liking and they prefer the characteristics of our tungsten ring which you can check out here.Return to FAQ
