An Introduction to Stainless Steel

By -

With its strength, durability and resistance to tarnishing, stainless steel has become a popular choice for fashion jewelry. Stainless steel is an alloy of steel and chromium. The chromium oxide film prevents tarnish, staining and discoloration.

The hard metal lends itself well to rings and chains that will retain their shape and luster after daily wear. Stainless steels relatively low cost and high strength make it popular for heavier styles and, therefore, is often seen in men’s jewelry.

Many stainless steel findings are unplated and are a great alternative for people with sensitivity to other base metals.

Although stainless steel is affordable, doesn’t tarnish and is scratch resistant, it isn’t as lustrous as sterling silver. This is something to keep in mind when making jewelry out of stainless jewelry. Stainless steel is a great option for large pendants, rings, ID bracelets, dog tags and body jewelry.
