Combining Gold with Black Zirconium for wedding rings
The demand for black Zirconium has risen dramatically in the last 12 months. Black Zirconium is very similar to Titanium. Visually, in its natural state, there is little difference between both metals. Like Titanium, Zirconium offers lightness, durability and comfort with the ability to be sized, unlike Tungsten. But heating Zirconium produces a black surface. This characteristic is visible with all black Zirconium wedding rings. Designs range from simple all-black Zirconium wedding rings to banded designs with polished edges.
Can Black Zirconium wedding rings be re-sized?
Black Zirconium wedding rings can be re-sized. Simple black Zirconium rings can be adjusted by approx. 1.5 sizes larger or smaller. Additional detail can make sizing difficult, but unlike unforgiving metals such as Tungsten, both Titanium and Zirconium do lend themselves to size adjustments if required.
Do black Zirconium wedding rings stay black?
Black Zirconium bands do remain black but this finish is an oxidised surface which can wear. When marked, worn or abraded, it can be re-applied by a simple process to restore the wedding ring to new condition. Read more on both metal types within our information pages online.
Precious metals with black Zirconium
It is possible to add an outer inlay or inner sleeve of precious metal to Zirconium wedding rings. One of our more unique black Zirconium wedding rings combines a yellow gold inner sleeve contrasting with a flat, satin-finished black zirconium outer surface. Only when the ring is removed do you see the luxurious warm gold. The addition of gold to the wedding ring gives a heavier, luxurious feel to the wedding ring.
