What is Stainless Steel
Ultra-high-grade stainless steel is non-magnetic and looks just like platinum while maintaining a higher strength. Stainless steel rings do not rust or discolor some skin types like other more traditionally used alloys. A non-traditional choice for fine jewelry, stainless steel has been used more frequently in men’s rings, necklaces and bracelets. Stainless steel jewelry is cut from solid pieces of steel leaving no seams or weak points. Stainless steel can also be inlaid with gold, tungsten or other materials. Stainless steel is also hypoallergenic, perfect for individuals with skin sensitivites.
Stainless steel pieces are finished using a technique called Electropolishing, which is a sophisticated surface polishing technique where electrochemical activity slowly eats away a surface layer, micro-smoothing the jewelry.
Stainless Steel Purity
Generally containing 10.5% chromium, stainless steel resists the process of oxidation, preventing rust or stains on its surface.
Stainless Steel Care
Stainless steel jewelry can be cleaned with warm water and detergent-free soap or a steam cleaner. Ultrasonic cleaners can also be used on pieces without inlaid gemstones.
Stainless steel rings can be removed in case of a medical emergency.
