Zirconium


When it comes to choosing the right metal for your wedding ring, Janai Jewellery is a name you can trust. We are experts when it comes to customising wedding rings, including the design such as plain wedding rings, two-tone weddings rings, and even vintage wedding rings, and offer different metals including platinum, rose gold, and even Zirconium. While not normally associated with traditional wedding rings, zirconium is a type of metal that has been exposed to extreme levels of heat to create a certain, highly unique appearance. Zirconium in its pure form is a light greyish colour, but at Janai Jewellery, we offer variations with zirconium wedding rings where it can be oxidized in order to make it black and much more stylish. Much more modern. As a bonus, our zirconium wedding rings are light on the finger and are safe against any type of sensitive skin. The durability has strong similarities to our Titanium wedding rings too, and as such, makes for a wonderful choice for a men’s wedding ring. The best art is that it can be paired with gold. So if you’re wanting something a little different you could add some gold trimming on the edges of the ring and really play around with different combinations of colours and designs.

Zirconium

(Wikipedia)

Zirconium is a chemical element with symbol Zr and atomic number 40. The name zirconium is taken from the name of the mineral zircon, the most important source of zirconium.[6] It is a lustrous, grey-white, strong transition metal that closely resembles hafniumand, to a lesser extent, titanium. Zirconium is mainly used as a refractory and opacifier, although small amounts are used as an alloying agent for its strong resistance to corrosion

The brand of Zirconium rings that Janai recommends is Ziro.

How hard is Zirconium?

Zirconium is harder than platinum.

How thick is the black?

Our Black Zirconium rings are not plated or coated with any other substance. They are created through a heat-treating process that causes the ring’s entire surface to oxidise and, therefore, turn black. This allows us to create stunning two-tone designs by cutting into the metal to reveal the silver tone of the natural zirconium beneath the surface.

Will Zirconium scratch?

Zirconium rings are as tough as they come. We should know, because when we were developing the ZiRO range, we tested for wear and tear and experimented with a bunch of different ways of inflicting damage.

The fact is though, as with most metals, Zirconium isn’t totally scratch resistant. So we recommend you take reasonable, everyday care with your ZiRO ring and don’t subject it to unnecessary or avoidable risk.

It’s probably best not to wear it when you’re bench-pressing your own body weight at the gym. Or, when you’re behind the wheel of your trusty power tools. And, we definitely don’t suggest that you drive over it in a monster truck. Just look after it and you’ll find it’ll look after itself.

Can Zirconium rings be made with a Comfort Curve™?

Yes.
