Jewelry pioneer Scott Kay formed an unlikely alliance last year with a metal maker and fabricator to produce a new white metal that is (incredibly) more durable than Tungsten Carbide and costs only a fraction of the price of platinum.

Kay was incensed last year when he started researching the “indestructible” durability of industry standard, tungsten carbide.  When he discovered that tungsten was in fact destructible and that there was possibly a stronger metal out there, Kay set out with metallurgists to find such a metal.

In late Fall last year, Kay unveiled the new metal, BioBlue 27.  The unique material is bright white, more durable than tungsten carbide, and consists of 64 percent cobalt , 29 percent  chromium, and 6 percent molybdenum.  It can also be cast or milled and inlaid with precious metals, which helps Scott Kay make some of his finest and most stunning jewelry items.  Kay released the unique Cobalt Bridal line late last year, which features men’s engagement rings that are sturdier and more durable than almost anything out there and come in the brilliant cobalt white metal.

Known as one of the most successful retail jewelry designers in the world, Scott Kay recently talked about his role as an artist in the jewelry industry and the hurdles he had to pass to get ahead. Kay is well known for his innovative use of precious metals that some have said would never catch on. He is largely credited.for kick-starting a resurgent interest in platinum and is now focusing his efforts on utilizing palladium for his rings, which has caused some to ask whether this creates a conflict of interests between his platinum partners. To which Kay dryly notes, “People might say, ‘Well, Scott, palladium could hurt your platinum business.’ But at the end of the day, I believe in this material.”

Kay is keen to get people interested in the benefits of buying a palladium ring. “Palladium is natural, it’s hard, it’s white, and it’s hypoallergenic. It’s not as dense as platinum or gold and that’s a good thing. If platinum was 40 percent less dense, it would be more precious to the jewelry industry, because as it is, you can’t make earrings and bracelets out of it.”

Kay works hard to get buyers to become collectors of his unique and custom-made items, which he considers works of art. His collections include everything from solitaire engagement rings to pave rings to men’s cobalt bridal bands. “I like going into stores because I like to share my vision with other people.” Kay notes. “One thing I’ve worked very hard at is helping people appreciate jewelry as an art form and not just a commodity.”

Things are changing in the wedding and engagement ring world.  Nowadays it’s not enough for only the woman to have an engagement ring.  Guys are getting theirs too.  Jewelry designer and industry leader Scott Kay came out with a line of the so-called “man-gagement” rings, or men’s engagement rings, just last year.

Presenting a new cobalt alloy dubbed “SK Cobalt”, Scott Kay has released his forward-thinking men’s wedding band collection with a bright white look, a contemporary flair that makes these men’s engagement rings look cool, as well as timeless.

The jewelry designer himself noted how much he was inspired this bright white cobalt look for this collection.  He also was sure to note how another low-priced bridal band material, tungsten carbide, was weaker than reports have claimed.

Kay patented the material used to compose the bridal bands himself, in an unprecedented partnership between the jewelry designer, a metal and jewelry manufacturer, and a steel company, Carpenter Technology Corp., which manufacture hundreds of alloys for everything under the sun.

Kay also says he plans to create more fashion pieces utilizing the patented “new contemporary” metal. There are also sure to be many more movements in the men’s bridal ring industry, as this popular bridal item is proving to be more than just a trend.  Scott Kay made his name by creating ladies Scott Kay engagement rings
