Titanium and oxygen are the two main components of the jewelry.
anodized titanium coloring
the jewelry is just made out of titanium but some other jewelry is made out of a titanium alloy which is mainly composed of titanium, aluminum, and vanadium (Ti6Al4V)
The strength of the metal makes it impervious to scratches, chip, and any imperfections.
Anodizing process and how the colors are different
Titanium isn't the only metal that can be anodized. Some other metals that can go through this process as well are niobium, tantalum, aluminum, magnesium, and zinc
Titanium can be anodized by heat but the results are a lot harder to control compared to anodizing through electricity.
anodizing titanium with heat will most likely only give you the colors of bronze, blues, and maybe yellow.
but when you go through the electricity way you will get a larger range of colors.
Ti (titanium) has an atomic # of 22
The different metals and their alloys immediately oxidize when it is exposed to air. so titanium, will react with the oxygen in the air and it will create a thin layer of titanium dioxide (TiO2) over the surface of the metal.
a solution that can be used for anodizing is sulfuric acid and diet coke
