Where the Titanium Rings Began: Chris and Sandy Boothe

Sandy Boothe Chris BootheWhy do we work with titanium? Cause we’re nuts! And, after so many years of specializing in the reactive metals, we continue to “think” in titanium and niobium.

We’ve been making jewelry since 1969. From 1975 through 1981 Chris and a former partner owned and operated The Wedding Ring Store in Washington, D.C. In 1979 they became captivated by the unique qualities of titanium and produced their first titanium earring designs. Chris and Sandy then went on to add many additional jewelry designs in titanium and niobium.

In 1991 Chris combined his years of goldsmithing with his passion for titanium to produce beautiful titanium wedding rings, which we have been selling online since 1995.

Quality Craftsmanship

We are committed to fulfilling our customers’ expectations for a perfect fit and top quality titanium ring. We are jewelers first and last, not machinists, bicycle repairmen, or middlemen. Our long experience results in parts that fit, tolerances that are close, finishes that are even, textures that are consistent, and a ring that fits. We can make any size in the tiniest increments.

Honoring the Origin of Titanium

Plaque for the 200th anniversary of the discovery of titanium, by Exotica JewelryIn 1991, we were chosen to make the plaque for the 200th anniversary of the discovery of titanium by William Gregor.

Commissioned by the Titanium Development Association (now the International Titanium Association), it was presented to the church in Cornwall, England, where Gregor was pastor when he first separated the element titanium from the mineral ilmenite in 1791.

Your Titanium Ring

So far we have made rings for people who worked on the SR71 and titanium submarines. We would be honored to work on your titanium ring. You can also browse our titanium wedding rings online.
