Why Stainless Steel?
There are many reasons why Stainless Steel jewellery has had a significant surge in popularity over the last few years.
Here, Gail tells us some of the reasons why manufacturers are frequently choosing it as the ‘metal’ of choice when creating their designs.
“It’s bright, shiny, looks expensive and has become ever more popular with designers because it doesn’t tarnish and is hypo-allergenic, it is resistant to scratching and it’s virtually impossible for it to rust or corrode. Stainless Steel is also highly resistant to staining, but it can be anodized (an electrolytic process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metals) to create a myriad of colours, from ultra pale pastel tones through to dense, shiny black. The benefits of using this metal make it an obvious choice for creators and wearers alike. It’s less expensive than precious metals and can be worn constantly without the risk of it getting scratched or discoloured, and, because it is less likely to cause reactions on sensitive skin, it’s become an all round staple of the jewellery world.
Of course one other major factor is the cost, Stainless Steel is a much more affordable metal to use and as such allows designers to really push their creativity when making pieces of jewellery with it. It also allows jewellery lovers the opportunity to build up a beautiful collection of jewels to suit every occasion.
Plus, leave a piece of Stainless Steel jewellery in a box for months and months and when you go back to it, it will still be sparkling like brand new!
What’s not to love about that then! It’s one of the reason we have such a wide range of jewellery made from this amazing metal in our store and on-line.
