Titanium, the mineral that creates the lustrous metal was not discovered by a scientist as one might expect but by a vicar in Cornwall in 1791.

Reverend William Gregor, who was interested in minerals, recognised the presence of a new element in menachanite, a mineral named after Menaccan, a small village in Cornwall. Titanium is the 9th most common element found in the earths crust but also in meteorites, the sun, lunar rocks and even the stars. Closer to home, we all carry a low quantity of titanium in our bodies although it has no biological function.

Although the titanium mineral is found in abundance, pure titanium is not found naturally. In 1910, Matthew Hunter heated TiC14 with sodium in a steel bomb at 700-800 centigrade and created the spectacular metal we know today as titanium.

Titanium is as strong as steel but much lighter, twice as strong as aluminum and almost as resistant to corrosion as platinum. These qualities make titanium a popular choice to be mixed with other metals to produce alloys used widely in the aerospace and marine craft industries and a host of other objects.

Pure titanium is as beautiful as it is practical and is now making a bold statement in jewellery with new ranges of exciting rings, bangles and cufflinks and more, that mix uncoloured titanium with other precious metals to create stunning designs, textures and colours. We only use the best designers and makers in pure titanium metal. The experience and skills shows in the design as well as the superlative finish.

Titanium's durability, strength and hypoallergenic qualities are complemented by its wonderful lustre - from the stars to the soul - titanium deserves its legendary name and is now being discovered and enjoyed by many people.
