There's nothing quite like the feeling of wearing a Cobalt Chrome Ring, and the reason for that (aside from the way it looks) is the natural properties of the alloys.More Dense, More Comfortable, More Hypoallergenic
Let's start with the weight. Cobalt is a little denser than other lightweight metals like titanium, meaning it's still comfortable to wear as a ring, but it also has a welcome bit of extra heft. As for comfort: Cobalt chrome isn't just hypoallergenic, it's also bio-inert
. It's the same metal being used in hip and knee implants, prosthetic limbs, and other medical applications. If it's good enough to get people walking again, it's definitely not going to irritate the skin of your ring finger.More Brilliant, More Corrosion Resistant
Cobalt Chrome Wedding Bands, meanwhile, are especially prized thanks to the incredible brilliance of the alloy. There's a shining luster to the surface that isn't like anything you'll find on other jewelry. It's corrosion resistant and slams the door on rust. It's a brilliance that's made to last a lifetime, and it's perfect for making a unique wedding ring that really says something.The Reason It Isn't Blue
"But wait," some of you are saying. "Cobalt is actually blue. Why do these rings almost look white? Is that some kind of coating that's going to flake off?" Nope, it's not a coating and it's not going to flake. Not ever. While it's true that cobalt has been used to make blue pigments for over two thousand years, cobalt chrome
is a mix of cobalt, chrome (obviously), and a few other rare alloys that form an unstoppable material that's harder, stronger, and brighter. If other metals are Metropolis, cobalt chrome is Superman.A 20th Century Metal Perfected for the 21st
A few of you might still be wondering, "If cobalt chrome is so great, then why am I just now hearing about it?" Cobalt chrome was first discovered a little over a century ago by Elwood Haynes, the same metallurgist who invented stainless steel eating utensils. Back then it was called Stellite (the metal was so bright it reminded Haynes of the stars) and it was primarily used in automobiles because of its strength and ability to resist rust.
It wasn't until the second half of the 20th century that doctors unlocked the full medical potential of cobalt chrome, and in the decades since then cutting edge designers have begun to appreciate the unique possibilities of cobalt chrome jewelry.
