Before choosing your ring, you first need to decide on a metal. In this guide, we'll tell you everything you need to know about wearing Tantalum, so you can decide if it is the best metal for you.


Good question! Tantalum is a super rare, hard, blue-grey metal which is highly corrosion resistant. Found most-commonly in electrical capacitors for computers, mobile phones and games consoles, there's predicted to be less than 50 years of Tantalum resources left in the world. The name is derived from the Greek mythological villain, Tantalus, due to its ability to resist liquids.

where does it come from?

Tantalum is refined from the mineral ore, Tantalite, which is found in hard rock deposits across various sites, mainly in Africa, South America and Asia. Our Tantalum comes from mines in China and is ethically sourced before being sent to the UK. 


Tantalum is extremely resistant to rust, corrosion or tarnishing, which makes it a great metal choice. However, it is highly conductive of heat and electricity so extra care should be taken in those environments.


Tantalum rings are available in our four most popular designs; Polished, Matt/Satin/Brushed, Bevelled Edge or Hammered Effect. With a style to suit any taste, which one you choose is completely up to your own personal preference.

To enjoy the deep, smokey blue of Tantalum in all its glory, then our brushed Millhouses ring is a great option. Alternatively, our Crookes Valley ring features two polished, bevelled edges with a brushed centre on the outside and a polished inside for comfort. 

For those who want to stand out from the crowd, our Rivelin Valley ring is a firm favourite in any metal. We think you’ll agree, in Tantalum this hammered effect style is our most luxurious ring yet!
