Is it really worth the hype?
Stainless steel is becoming a staple in the jewellery industry. Cheaper than solid gold, and extremely more durable than traditional brass, this metal is a favourite amongs millennials.
But is it really worth the hype?
Stainless steel is a highly durable metal, thanks to an invisible layer of chromium that prevents oxidation. It is highly resistant to scratches and corrosion, making it the perfect material for everyday jewellery. Here's 5 reasons why stainless steel is the perfect material for your everyday jewellery:
1. It's affordable
Everyday jewellery should be long lasting, tarnish resistant and... affordable! Stainless steel is the perfect combination of quality and price.
2. It's sustainable
Did you know that stainless steel is non-degradable and 100% recyclable? This is one of the reasons why it is becoming extremely popular.
3. It's durable
Since it's a hard metal, stainless steel won't scratch, tarnish or rust for a very long time - even when in contact with water.
4. It's hypoallergenic
