Want a super unique wedding band?
Joe Escobar Diamonds is now the exclusive dealer of Tantalum wedding bands by Benchmark in the San Jose Bay Area. But what is Tantalum? Tantalum is a chemical element with symbol Ta and atomic number 73. Previously known as tantalium, its name comes from Tantalus, an antihero from Greek mythology. Tantalum is a rare, hard, blue-gray, lustrous transition metal that is highly corrosion-resistant.
Why is Tantalum a good alternative in a wedding band?
Tantalum is pure and is not alloyed with any other materials which makes Tantalum a real earth metal as well as Hypoallergenic.
Tantalum is a rare metal and only a certain amount is used for jewelry each year, as the process to manufacture Tantalum wedding bands is extremely difficult. Tantalum is very strong and unlike other contemporary metals used for wedding bands it will not shatter if dropped. Tantalum is also one of the only contemporary metals used in wedding bands that can be stretched.
All Tantalum rings by Benchmark are guaranteed to be 100% conflict free material.
