Hey all. I have a friend / customer that really wants me to make his
engagement ring since I’m friends with him and especially his
girlfriend. He has a 2carat round diamond. He wants to use platinum
and titanium in the design. I can do the platinum part, but… I’ve
never worked with titanium. Can one solder (and how) two titanium
bands to either side of a platinum (or White gold, I guess maybe)
ring? How does one shape titanium with a file and can I polish at my
bench and with my buffing wheel? Please help. I’ve told him that I
know nothing about titanium and that I don’t think I can even work
with it. He keeps asking though. I wish this were just a customer and
not a friend and I could just say “no” and send them to the internet.
Also if someone out their casts titanium etc.maybe we can all solve
this problem. He wants the ring one week before XMAS.
