If a piece of silver jewellery contains titanium will it assay as silver or mixed metal?

I’m making a pair of earrings and a pendant of titanium set in silver. The total weight is very likely to be above 7.8g (that’s the weight over which it should be assayed?). Would they treat titanium as a gemstone, or metal?
Do I have to have it assayed - the silver would be under the weight limit.

In the states we don’t have to get our pieces assayed so I don’t know. Could you contact the assay office?

There’s a video issued by the London Assay Office on mixed metals;
