THE ABSOLUTE TITANIUM
DESIGN JEWELRY LINE
Absolute Titanium Design® (ATD for short...) has been a leading
mark of innovation and quality in designing and crafting jewelry
designs in Titanium and other metals since 1997. As such, we belong
with the first wave of Titanium jewelry enthusiasts that have
spearheaded what is by now a global trend, a group which had comprised,
at the time, of only 4 or 5 shops (!) worldwide.
This seniority in the field is an important asset of which we are proud.
In the course of those years we have introduced several innovations in
styles, alloys used, renditions of various metals, and very metals
used, some still exclusive and proprietary to and by us and some
involving techniques shared by very few world-wide.
This long experience has enabled us to develop designs, styles and
reliable techniques that may be acquired only through time, experience
and, of course talent, such as those cumulated and shared by our
respective design, production and sales teams.
While many Titanium jewelry manufacturers had evolved from mechanics,
who were repeatedly addressed by friends and relatives with requests to
machine for them rings in iron, stainless steel or Titanium, and who,
then, developed this side-line into a lucrative main production line,
ATD's roots, on the other hand, were in the worlds of design and
diamonds. It was exactly this unique capacity of the metal Titanium to
offer mighty and safe Tension
Settings for diamonds, in an unconventional metal and look
that were the primary driving force behind the studios focus on
Combined with their execution, by using state of the art equipment, and
the dedicated, highly trained and skilled teams of metal technologists
and jewelers, those designs, and the name "Absolute Titanium Design"
have grown to be synonymous with innovative style, and with a
standard-setting House in the field of avant-garde jewelry creation, in
particular diamond jewelry and tension setting designs, catering to
most discriminating and demanding clients world wide.
Our innovative team has applied unique processes in the creation of
a Titanium product offered exclusively by us. It displays a stunning
visual effect neither seen in, nor offered by any other Titanium
We offer most of our Titanium accessories also in dark gun metal gray,
charcoal and black Titanium, yet another example, based, again, on our
The introduction of jewelry in the metal Zirconium,
in particular in its blackened format, a world first, by our studios,
with its unmatched dark, smoky-black look, Tahitian pearl-like,
provides yet another example of Absolute Design Studios original and
innovative course and pioneering approach in advanced metal,
avant-garde jewelry design.
Prior to their love affair with titanium, Maria da Costa and Gaddi Zak,
the incepting forces behind Absolute Design Studios, were deeply
involved in the world of design and diamonds. Maria, in addition to her
design training, also passed the qualification test for Diamond Grading
diploma by the renowned HRD Belgian diamond institute of Antwerp.
Gaddi, with his diamond grading training (IGI Antwerp) also got carried
away in the world of design. It was not until our love affair with
titanium and other unconventional metals and metal alloys, however,
that they could fully combine their complimentary training, passions
and forge them into reality.
Maria is an associate member of the SDIQ --a Quebec based designers
association, and specializes in virtual and computerized design, known
as CAD CAM. A designer with a following, Maria da Costa has seen her
rings cherished by the same clients, in repeat important events in
their lives, from engagement, to weddings and subsequent anniversaries.
Gaddi leads the research team that may be credited with the
introduction of Kaleido Ti™ and Blackened Zirconium and
TM and Blackened Zirconium.
Treat yourself and your beloved one to a unique, elegant and only too
often breath taking (as clients of ours wrote to us...) jewelry
experience, created by a leading design house in advanced metals and
diamond jewelry. Let their adorning artwork accompany you throughout
your life-cycle events...

A WORD ABOUT THE DIAMONDS
- A. D. Van-Daaz was one of the first ever
dealerships, among the first four "back" in 1995 (of which two later
ceased to exist). It was the creation of Gaddi, in collaboration with a
veteran diamond dealer of close to 20 years (Steven).
- The company, going strong, is affiliated with
consumer protection agencies offering top quality diamonds, all GIA,
AGS, or EGL (your choice) certified, of natural, untreated and of no
artificially enhanced properties. The company specializes in American
Ideal Cut proportions.
- Absolute Titanium Design is also a Better
Bureau listed and works seamlessly with Van-Daaz on sourcing suitable
diamonds at among the best on-line diamond prices anywhere, with access
to over 12,000 stones at any given time!

worldwide and mainly in the USA. Our products are available also in
most (but not all) of Canada. No Customs or Duties apply in the USA,
and all business cycles in the US are carried out through US Financial

- Notice: Despite claims to
the contrary by some
manufacturers, presumably of limited access to the harder to find
Ti-6/4 and Ti-6/6/2, those grades are undeniably, and metallurgically
proven to be of substantially higher tensile strength and resistance,
require longer machining, finishing and polishing, exert faster wear on
tools and work accessories & materials, and are most definitely
costlier. We will NOT, however, manufacture our tension settings in any

- "The Tension is
Mounting"™--Absolute Titanium's line of tension-set diamond
- Absolute Titanium Design offers you these
designs of breathtaking beauty and simplicity, each a jewelry marvel in
itself, and each marked with its Titanium grade. Every ring is
individually and meticulously crafted using the most advanced
technologies, machinery and careful quality control. Each represents a
feat of engineering, an accomplishment in design, and a victory for
advanced metallurgy as applied in jewelry. Only aircraft and aerospace
and black Titanium grades, of over ~100,000 PSI in tensile strength and
the most suitable "modulus of elasticity" (a term in metallurgy which
indicates resistance to bending) are used by Absolute Titanium in these
settings. Our tension settings are hand finished, and each diamond is
set-to-order by hand and carefully tested. Their release from the
workshop and shipping always pend, first, on the sourcing and the
completion of the diamond purchase, as well as, evidently, the actual
setting job. Some ring designs are design-patent pending (US) and
Design mark pending (Canada)--please inquire.
