Zirconium, often confused with it's sister metal Titanium, is a refractive metal typically used in industrial applications and more recently, jewellery.

It's natural colour is similar to Titanium but then, by heating it, a black, ceramic like Zirconium oxide layer is naturally formed.

It has a soft, silky feel in its polished black condition similar to how a mug would feel when you touch it. The insides of our rings are polished this way with a comfort (curved) fit as standard and then we add different textures to the outside of the ring which could be satin, polished, hammered or coarse linished.

 

With our engraving service, there are a few simple things you need to include when sending work in to us. By making sure you include as much information, we can give you the best possible engraving service. Without these key details, your work can be delayed, done incorrectly or end up costing you more.

How do I get a good fingerprint?

Fingerprint jewellery

Various fingerprint kits are available to buy online that give excellent results and the clearer the print supplied, the better the laser engraved result on your fingerprint jewellery will be.

Due to the fineness of a child's print, these are probably the ones that need the greatest attention to detail. Using a good quality, smooth paper can improve the result
and best results, both for children and adults, are usually found using glossy photographic paper.

If we determine that the print is unsuitable or requires too much work to make usable, we would have to request that better prints are obtained, or charge extra to clean them up (if possible).

A visual examination of the print before sending to us will save having to resubmit new prints and a lot of time, examples of good and bad prints are shown below.

 

 

Along with our standard ring boxes, we now have in stock an additional box with separate compartment for care instructions and small promotional gifts.

Available in twin colour grey outers with teal foam interiors. Please contact us for price details or by logging into your trade account.

 

A selection of starter packs are now available that existing and potential customers may find useful either to top up their ranges or for taking the first steps with GETi products.

Each pack includes a point of sale display but can be ordered without the plinth and blocks if required. The prices in each starter pack selection shown to trade customers also attract a further 10% discount.

Laser Engraving is an aggressive method of creating deep relief engravings on most metals and some stones, popular metals engraved include: Silver, Gold, Platinum, Palladium, Tungsten, Stainless Steel, Cobalt Chrome, Copper, Titanium and Zirconium.

Items engraved include: Watches, rings, cufflinks, earrings, pendants, brooches, lighters, hip flasks. 

 

 

On the face of it, sizing a finger for a customer should be a fairly simple task. However, with the introduction in recent years of the comfort fit, which is the curved interior of a ring, and the fact that a ring stick can be measured 3 different ways by a jeweller (leading edge, centre, back edge), the process can be plagued with errors.

Ideally, the gauge used to measure a finger should be an exact replica of the ring being purchased i.e. have either a straight bore or a comfort fit bore and be the same width. There are variations to the comfort fit that can upset the apple cart in as much as the radius of the fit can be quite shallow, heavily domed or anything in between, hence the reason to use a gauge that has the same profile as the ring being bought.

Can Titanium rings be removed in an emergency?

There seems to be a lot of myths and legends concerning this topic so I will try to put the record straight. Titanium is a material that is not particularly hard but is very strong and has a high tensile strength. Many people are unsure as to the difference between hardness and tensile strength and often get them confused. Let us consider diamond, the hardest material currently known to man. If you had a rod of diamond that was 25mm in diameter and 1 metre long, you wouldn't easily scratch it or mark it but if you try to bend it over your knee, you would probably find that it would snap like a carrot.

 

A laser, which is an acronym of Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, is a highly focused controlled beam of single colour light and can be used either to discolour the surface of a component or to vaporise material by laser ablation to produce a deep engraving. The laser parameters and position can be precisely controlled to provide high contrast marks in the form of barcodes, data matrix codes and logo graphics. If a surface is painted or anodised then the laser can be used to precisely remove the surface to give a contrast. By choosing a contrasting colour translucent substrate, a graphic can be backlit for night and day readability for example on car dashboards and aircraft cockpit controls.

What materials can be marked?

All metals (both precious and non-precious), most plastics, glass and many ceramics can be marked or etched.

Uses:

As the demand for more personalized items of jewelery has increased, many jewelers are appreciating the benefits of lasers and their engraving capability.

Facts AND fun? I'm not so sure about the fun bit for this article. Having researched this on the internet all I seem to come across is a load of boring facts and figures, but here goes.
