We can emboss or carve these and many other themes into titanium wedding rings. If those themes don’t thrill you or your fiance, how about skiers, fish, barbed wire, waves, mathematical formulas, airplanes, flames, or oak leaves?
We have incorporated all these themes into titanium rings and many have been very popular. Sometimes we carve directly into the titanium ring and sometimes we make dies and strike the images into the rings. What’s the difference?
We like dies because they can produce a more complex image with sharper details in a small area, like the oak leaves
Some images are too big or need flowing continuity around the ring that is harder to achieve with dies, like many of our mountain rings:
and one of the barbed wire designs:
And some of our designs use both dies and hand carving, like the Eastbourne which has three different sized waves using dies and many of the other lines directly carved into the titanium ring.
Many jewelry designers these days use CAD-CAM equipment to put designs on their titanium rings and there’s nothing wrong with that—they are especially suited to jewelry that will be cast rather than forged, or for intricate designs that must be symmetrical and continuous around the ring. But they don’t allow for the sharp detail and varying depth that is achievable with dies nor the flexibility of swapping different elements.
So what theme would YOU like to see in a titanium ring?
