Tantalum is a hypoallergenic metal that has a similar specific gravity to Platinum (this means it is dense and heavier than silver and gold). It has good wearing properties, being very strong and tarnish resistant. This material can not be resized, a consideration when buying a ring that may be worn for many years.
