All about Tantalum

All about Tantalum

The gods must have been crazy when they invited Tantalos to the banquet. The son of their supreme ruler could not behave - and Zeus was angry. He sent lightning and thunder into the Sipylos Mountains. That is what the legend tells us. Similarly, TANTALUM could have been created - the rarest metal of our solar system. TANTALUM is made for extraordinary wedding rings. For people who are looking for the exquisite.

What is Tantalum?

Tantalum is a rare earth metal with a luxurious weight and unique blue/grey sheen.

Tantalum rings are made with the metal in its pure form, so that they are complacently hypo-allergenic, resistant to breakage and the most precious of all the contemporary metals.

Why choose Tantalum?

There are plenty of reasons to choose Tantalum for your wedding ring. Tantalum offers a luxurious weight, unusual tone and colour and it is hypoallergenic.

Tantalum is resistant to corrosion and will only corrode if exposed to hydrofluoric acid. It is also shatterproof, unlike metals such as tungsten. This makes it ideal for people with busy hands who lead active lifestyles.

Tantalum is resistant to breakage and offers the wearer a strong and sturdy ring that will last for years to come. Tantalum rings can also be set with diamonds if you are looking for added luxury.
