Steel lined rings
In 1988 Pycke developed a technique to line titanium rings on the inside with gold. This technique was unearthed again, this time with steel linings.
Titanium rings with a stainless steel lining, virtually indestructible, made to be worn 24 hours a day. The makers are confident enough to give a 5 year guarantee. The guarantee includes the after sales service of changing the diameter.
The rings are composed of two parts, a massive titanium kernel, and a steel lining. The seamless steel lining is pressed around the kernel. In the process the steel lining is heated beyond 1.000 Centigrade. This makes for a strong, virtually indestructible piece of work. The rings are for the greater part made by hand.
|Widths: 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 -10 -12 mm. Lining: high gloss; titanium kernel: etched in a matte finish. A number of rings have golden accents (18 carat yellow or red), and machine set diamonds and/or real sapphire. Prices start at € 150,00.|
