The story of titanium rings is coming from an age as old as the story of titanium itself. Prometheus was the Titan god of forethought and crafty counsel who was entrusted with the task of molding mankind out of clay.
As punishment for his continuous rebellious acts against Zeus, made for trying to help the humans – stealing the fire, for example, Prometheus was arrested and bound to a stake on Mount Caucasus where an eagle was set to feed upon his ever-regenerating liver. Generations later the great hero Heracles came along and released the old Titan from his torture.
As a reminder of his crime, he was forced to wear a link of the chain on his finger with a bit of the rock attached. It may not have been a titanium ring, but it was attached to a Titan, making it pretty close to the real thing. It is said this is the concept that is found today on any rings carrying a stone – even if nowadays we’re talking about precious stones – such as diamonds.
Titanium metal is starting to get its own symbolism. The naming convention and some popular nicknames – such as “metal of the gods” pay homage to its ancient heritage. But its initial birthplace – the aerospace field – has branded titanium with a modern significance – “space age metal”. Or maybe it’s just the wish of titanium to be reunited, at last, in heavens, with its first creators.
