Contemporary Metals

Here at Durham Rose, all of our bespoke pieces are created using precious metals such as Platinum, Gold, Palladium and Silver. Metals such as Titanium and Tungsten are considered as contemporary metals. Unfortunately, they are not metals we offer within our bespoke services due to the properties of these metals and the manufacturing difficulties.


Having become increasingly popular within the jewellery industry over the last few years, Titanium jewellery is high in demand. Its durability and affordability is very appealing to the consumer but this durability and strength hinders its manufacturing possibilities. With titanium being such a strong metal it’s very difficult for detailed titanium pieces to be produced as its very hard to manipulate into intricate desired shapes. Simpler designs are possible using Titanium but due to its difficulty in processes such as resizing, we do not feel Titanium is a metal to recommend as one of the metals for your bespoke pieces.




Another metal becoming increasingly popular is Tungsten. Once again the durability and affordability of this metal are sought after properties for consumers. Similar to Titanium and its properties, the high level of strength creates difficulties during the manufacturing process which does not allow designs of intricate detail to be produced as it’s a hard metal to manipulate. Sizing rings made of Tungsten is also very difficult to do and will not be cost effective for the consumer.
