Jewelry industry

 

Titanium is a popular material in the jewelry industry, mainly as a result of its corrosion resistance and relavitely high immunity to deformations. At first sight, titanium resembles platinum, yet it is much harder and ductile. Another popular feature, obviously found a very attractive one in jewelry making business, is that titanium may be anodized to alternate the thickness of its oxide layer causing optical interference fringes and as a result change in its color.

Out of all materials and metals used in jewelry, nickel plays an important role. Commonly used as alloying element and details made out of it are later being silver and gold plated. Depending on its fineness, it is used as an alloying element added to gold, increasing its hardness.

Because of the high corrosion resistance and machinability, tantalum is quite a popular material as well. It is used to make some jewelry details, including cases and housings for watches.
