Tantalum is known for its strength and durability. Similar to tungsten, tantalum is tough and scratch resistant. However, tantalum is more ductile than tungsten, making it more malleable, less brittle and less likely to shatter on impact. Perfect for those who are heavy with their hands.

Tantalum is a relatively rare metal that has been gaining popularity in jewellery making due to its unique characteristics:

  1. Durability: Tantalum is highly durable and resistant to corrosion, making it ideal for everyday wear. It doesn't tarnish or corrode easily, which means it maintains its appearance well over time.

  2. Hypoallergenic: Tantalum is hypoallergenic, making it an excellent choice for people with sensitive skin or metal allergies. It is often used in medical implants for this reason.

  3. Weight: Tantalum is heavier than other popular jewellery metals like titanium, but lighter than platinum or gold. Its weightiness gives it a luxurious feel.

  4. Colour: Tantalum naturally has a dark grey or gunmetal colour which gives it a unique and modern appearance. 

  5. Resistance to wear: Tantalum is highly scratch-resistant, which means that jewellery made from this metal is less likely to show signs of wear and tear compared to softer metals, such as gold or silver.

  6. High melting point: Tantalum has one of the highest melting points of any metal, making it highly resistant to heat. This characteristic ensures that tantalum jewellery will maintain its integrity even under extreme conditions.

This hammer textured tantalum ring is available in a range of widths, making it suitable for both men and women. Please note, due to tantalum's nature and characteristics, your ring may be able to be sized up, but not sized down. 

The ring will be handmade specifically to your size, so please allow approximately 3 weeks for the craftsmanship required.
