Bangle titanium forged
With Iridescence and Layers of Blue.
Titanium was discovered before aluminium at the end of the 18th century, and it took quite a long time for the metal to become part of our day-to-day lives. Titanium is very light but extraordinarily tough and will keep its shape. And its lovely bluish layer of oxide film makes it interesting for the production of jewellery in the blacksmith's shop of the Königsmünster Abbey in North Rhine-Westphalia.
Titanium, the jack-of-all-trades
Titanium is a metal of our everyday lives, and for many people it is even a vital metal when it comes to prostheses. It was only discovered shortly before aluminum at the end of the 18th century, and it took a long time, until the middle of the 20th century, before it could start its triumphal procession. This was due to the manufacturing process, which developed only gradually and is very complex, leading to pure titanium(ium) only via intermediate thermal-chemical steps. Titanium is very light, extremely tough and dimensionally stable, and plays a major role in aviation. Its beautiful bluish oxide layer also makes it interesting for jewelry making.
