Black wedding rings
Lord Coconut, the men’s wedding ring specialist, is pleased to announce the release of black zirconium men’s wedding rings by Melbourne based jeweller Rhett Dale. These rings are now available in-store or online (free delivery Australia wide) at Lord Coconut.
Lord Coconut owner Mark Boldiston states “A growing number of grooms were moving away from the traditional gold wedding band and asking for a ring with a more contemporary look and finish. One of the hottest trends at the moment are black wedding rings. Traditionally this has been a difficult request to satisfy as many of the black rings seen online are made from Tungsten which is an extremely heavy metal which is not used or made by the majority of Australian based jewellers. The other option has traditionally been an oxidised sterling silver ring which, although dark, in not a true black and tends to wear off the soft sterling silver. An alternative needed to be found”.
Lord Coconut are pleased to announce that we now stock, in order to meet growing consumer demand, black zirconium rings by Melbourne jeweller Rhett Dale. These lightweight black rings are a true black, can be made either matt, brushed or polished and the ‘blackness’ does not wear off over time. They can also be combined with gold to give a mix of the traditional and the contemporary in the one ring.
Dale says “With specialised thermal processing I can transform the surface of zirconium (a metal closely related to titanium) to a ceramic state which is true black in colour. This outer ‘blackness’ is extremely tough and does not wear off over time. This makes it an ideal wedding ring for men as the ring still keep its strong metallic core whilst the black outer layer is very difficult to scratch.”
