Under carefully controlled manufacturing conditions, the exterior surface color of naturally gray titanium wedding bands can be permanently changed to a rich and luxurious black. This color is not a paint or coating applied to the outside surface, but it actually forms on the wedding band during part of the manufacturing and treatment process. The result is a luxurious black finish that is impervious to typical wear and scratching and is guaranteed to stay black forever. Two grooves are then cut into this band to expose the natural color of the underlying titanium and create a subtle and pleasing contrast to the rich black color. A strong yet elegant look, this 7mm comfort-fit wedding band has the strength and light-weight feel that only titanium provides.
