Stainless steel jewelry is a very special metal jewelry, the texture is very tough, but also very resistant to corrosion, it will not be like silver jewelry will turn black, not like copper jewelry will be allergic, nor like alloy jewelry because of lead and toxic, and stainless steel jewelry at room temperature always maintain their own tone, can be used for life.
Stainless steel jewelry is the same material from inside to outside, and through the body test of artificial sweat, its characteristics are non-corrosive, alkali-resistant, acid-resistant, non-discoloration, non-allergic, hard, non-fading, bright, non-deformation, is complete to the human body will not produce any side effects and hazards of green high-grade environmental protection jewelry.
The corrosion resistance of stainless steel jewelry depends on the alloy elements contained in the steel. Chromium is the basic element that makes stainless steel obtain corrosion resistance. When the chromium content in the steel reaches about 12%, under the action of chromium and oxygen of the corrosive medium, a thin oxide film is formed on the surface of the steel, which can prevent further corrosion of the steel substrate.
In addition to chromium, commonly used alloying elements are nickel, titanium, copper, nitrogen, niobium, etc., to meet the requirements of various uses of stainless steel structure and performance. The corrosion resistance, toughness, and weldability of stainless steel increase with the content, and the stress corrosion resistance to chlorides is better than other types of stainless steel.
When one considers bracelets, rings, and chains made of stainless steel, the jewelry is often indistinguishable from more expensive sterling silver and is sometimes mistaken for cheap white gold. 316l surgical or marine steel has the advantage that they are hypoallergenic, robust, and more durable than any precious metal, and with a little artistry, the steel can make a bold statement.
Nowadays, stainless steel jewelry is becoming popular, especially for men’s wedding rings. They are beautiful, either brushed or inlaid with antlers or rosewood.
