Titanium is a very durable, damage-resistant metal. It is stronger than either platinum or gold and is three times stronger than steel. Even with its strength, it is also lightweight and hypoallergenic, making it perfect for everyone, including those with sensitive skin. One of the most popular types of titanium jewelry is the titanium bracelet. There are several things to take into consideration when choosing which titanium bracelet to purchase.
Bracelets made from titanium are available in both male and female versions. The female titanium bracelets tend to be smaller, with more intricate detail, and designs such as hearts, stars and other emblems. The male version of the titanium bracelet is often wider, with a chunky or armored appearance.
Decide what style of titanium bracelet you are looking for. They are available in chain links, bangles, cuffs, cable link, cable cross link, barrel bar, and tungsten carbide. Chain link, bangles, and cuff-style bracelets are geared more towards females, while the tungsten carbide bracelet is distinctly male. Cable link, cable cross link and barrel bar styles are designed for both sexes.
Think about what kind of clasp you want on your titanium bracelet. There are several kinds of clasps, including watch band, toggle, magnetic, pearl and box. Many titanium bracelets are as thick as watches, making the watch band style the most common clasp people choose. There is no specific type that is recommended, as it is all a matter of preference and style.
Consider if you want to combine other precious metals with the titanium. Many people like the look of gold or platinum inlaid in their titanium bracelet. If provides a striking contrast against the titanium, drawing attention to the bracelet and its wearer. Men's titanium bracelets are also commonly found inlaid with black resin, adding a more masculine appearance.
Choose a titanium bracelet with gemstones if you want to add a little flair. Titanium bracelets can often be found accented with diamonds or gemstones. The gems range in type from cubic zirconium to diamonds.
Many titanium bracelets come with magnetic features. These are believed to have great health benefits for the wearer. The magnets are said to produce a negative energy field which counteracts the positive field associated with painful conditions. This is thought to bring more oxygen to the painful area to reduce inflammation and relieve the pain. People who are pregnant, wear a pacemaker or have electronic implants should avoid magnetic titanium bracelets or other magnet products.
