Why do we use Stainless Steel for our Jewellery?
What type of Steel do we use?
Firstly lets start with what type we use, 316L grade stainless which is Surgical Steel. It’s low nickel steel used in surgical instruments and other medical equipment. It’s considered hypoallergenic, and won’t tarnish or rust.
What are the advantages of using Stainless Steel?
High Strength - Due to its high tensile strength, it is not easy to deform. Giving us and you the piece of mind that your jewellery wont bend or break easily!
Strong Corrosion Resistance - Due to the oxidizing film that forms on Stainless Steel, your jewellery will be resistant to corrosion such as Rust and/or Deterioration of the product itself! The material will not show usual signs of wear and tear and you don’t need much maintenance to attain that either. You can just clean the ring once a day or a few times a week. Stainless Steel doesn’t get damaged by being overexposed to water.
Affordable - Because Stainless Steel is not a precious metal like Gold, Silver or Bronze it is way more budget friendly to make, produce and sell - while still having a similar look to the precious metals and all the durability!
