COBALT JEWELRY INFORMATION

Q. WHAT IS BIOBLU 27™ COBALT?

A: Carpenter Technologies developed the superalloy known as BioBlu 27™. By melting raw natural elements into a homogeneous liquid state, a completely solid form is created after the cooling cycle is complete. This is the same process that precious metal is created. This alloy has been used in various medical and aerospace applications, but now it is also available to the general public as the premier contemporary metal for creating fine wedding rings.

Q. WILL SK COBALT SCRATCH?

A: While not scratch-proof, SK Cobalt is very scratch resistant. In the case of visible scratches, they can be easily polished out by a jeweler. Precious metals like platinum and gold require periodic polishing – Your SK Cobalt band should be cared for in the exact same way.

Q: IS IT SAFE? I HAVE SEEN SOME CONFLICTING COBALT JEWELRY INFORMATION ON THE INTERNET.

A: Cobalt is a basic element that exists naturally. When combined specifically with other natural elements, it becomes a hypoallergenic & biocompatible superalloy called BioBlu 27™. It is entirely safe, and is perfect for creating wedding bands that will last a lifetime and beyond.

Q: IS SK COBALT HYPOALLERGENIC?

A: Absolutely. SK Cobalt is biocompatible; it can exist within the human body with no detrimental effects. Because of this unique trait, it is often used as the material of choice for artificial implants. It is also hypoallergenic, which means the wearer should not experience skin irritation when wearing a ring made from BioBlu 27™ Cobalt.

Q: IF THE COBALT WEDDING BAND IS SO HARD AND SCRATCH RESISTANT, CAN IT BE CUT AND REMOVED?

A: Yes. There are inexpensive tools that are commonly available that can successfully & safely remove a Scott Kay Cobalt wedding ring.
