Jewelry Metal inquiry

hello, i am looking for - if such a thing would exist - a Metal band
ring that must be black (or grey black), matte and is a simple band.

where can i look for such a ring? i looked everywhere - and nobody
has the “black metal band ring.”

please write back to me and thank you,


The metal you need to investigate is niobium with a heavy oxide
finish. It is dark grey to black. The oxide surface is quite durable.
I have been making bands with niobium for about 15 years, there is
one in my Orchid Gallery site.

Clara, you’re probably looking for Titanium. There are a number of
sources on the WWW, and I suspect Orchidians know several to
recommend. David Barzilay, Lord of the Rings
