HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MATERIAL FOR EAR-RINGS
Previously, we explored stainless steel as one of the finest materials for our earrings. In fact, it is the best material which is balanced between cost and practicality. Like most metal production, stainless steel is very affordable when produced in large quantities. On top of that, it is also practical in the sense that it is lightweight, scratch and rust resistance. Today, we will be looking at another alternative which is titanium. Titanium is also a metal alloy which is also one of the best materials used for jewelry and watches for men.

Unlike stainless steel, titanium is almost twice as the light of the same construction and design. On top of that, titanium is almost 3 or 4 times more resistant to scratches and rust as well. However, there are disadvantages of titanium when used in jewelry. One of the disadvantages is the lack of shine in their appearance. Most titanium is slightly grey, with a pit of matte grey in appearance. In stainless steel, the addition of chromium helps to make the jewelry shin. Because of this, some people may think of stainless steel as more elegant as it resembles silver. On top of that, titanium is slightly a little more expensive to manufacture into jewelry as opposed to stainless steel.
