Although all of the inlay materials we use are either stabilized or reconstituted with a resin for extra durability, bands with exposed edges (no titanium on the sides) require extra TLC and are not recommended for those with active or water-intensive lifestyles.
We are happy to add ultra-thin titanium edges to any ring for added protection. Adding titanium edges is an additional $100.
Many people love the exposed edge style and are able to live with it for life. However, if you should get a band with exposed edges from us and then discover that your lifestyle is rougher on your hands than you realized, you need only to contact us to add a Lifetime Care Option for your ring. At that time, you may also choose to get the ultra-thin titanium edges added.
