Zirconium is often referred to as an extreme metal, and it's no surprise why. Relatively rare in nature on Earth, the most abundant source of Zirconium in the universe is in the heart of s-type super giant stars, ancient monsters that have roamed their galaxies for billions of years. It's lighter than steel, tougher than its cousin titanium, and (if metal could laugh) it would laugh at better-known elements like gold and silver. Zirconium also doesn't conduct heat, which is why its melting point is a hellish 3,371° F (and that's almost twice the melting point of gold). It can withstand conditions so severe that if you encounter them yourself, the quality of your ring is going to be the least of your concerns.
But what about black
zirconium? Black zirconium is even more
intense! Taking its name from its distinctive dark finish, black zirconium is created by heating zirconium to extreme temperatures until the metal oxidizes. The resulting material is entirely black (that's not an ashy coating you see on these rings), is smooth like ceramic, and resists scratching better than almost any average metal.
But for all its intensity, black zirconium can be a literal lifesaver. It's chemically inert, hypoallergenic, and its durability makes it ideal for medical and biotech applications. There are people walking today thanks to black zirconium knee and hip implants.
It's all these qualities that make Black Zirconium Rings and Black Zirconium Wedding Rings such a perfect choice for anyone who wants something a little different that's going to last. There's nothing else that looks like 'em, there's nothing else that holds up like 'em, and there's nothing else that feels like 'em. Just pick a style, and we'll craft a ring for you that will make you glad you joined the dark side!
