IS IT SAFE TO WEAR A TITANIUM RING ...
Titanium rings are unsafe to wear when you're in an accident. This totally untrue. We have done our own independent research in order to determine this.
It is however more dangerous to wear a plain gold band.
The main reason is because gold is maluable and can clamp down on your finger, reducing the blood-flow to the finger.
Titanium will not clamp down - it will bend till a certain point and eventually snap if enough pressure is applied.
Titanium rings are safe. They are extremely hard and if they need to be cut off in the event of an emergency, it is possible.
We have spoken to numerous emergency medics and have come to the conclusion that if they are able to cut a car open, they can cut a ring off your finger.
Based on their experience they have seen more accidents where gold negatively affects an emercency situation than a titanium ring.
Certain titanium alloys (e.g. Beta C) achieve tensile strengths of over 1400 MPa (200000 psi).
However, titanium loses strength when heated above 430 °C
