Triton Introduces TungstenAIR

Triton has introduced TungstenAIR, an innovative, patented new metal that delivers the perfect balance of weight and strength to keep pace with any man who lives an active lifestyle.

“Triton is defined by strength, innovation and style. Our attention to detail, design artistry, and innovative engineering of contemporary metals create a bold statement,” says Jonathan Goldman, CEO of Frederick Goldman Inc.

 “Triton continues to lead the way for innovation in men’s rings and jewelry with the launch of TungstenAIR, built for today’s active lifestyle.” 

TungstenAIR has all of the benefits of Tungsten Carbide, including durability, strength and scratch-resistance, but with a reduced weight.  The lighter weight allows active men to partake in all daily activities without thinking about removing their ring or having it get in the way. 

The collection includes traditional styles as well as rings with a pop of color on the inside and edge.  These “Sport Collection” rings are available in four colors: Arctic White, Midnight, Electric Blue, and Fire Red. The entire TungstenAIR collection consists of 30 different styles of scratch-resistant men’s bands, including 24 rings in the Sport Collection. 

 

Triton TungstenAIR can be found at authorized retailers via www.TRITONjewelry.com.
