With its bright, silvery finish and its resistance to tarnish, stainless steel has become an increasingly popular choice for fashion jewelry. For certain kinds of body jewelry that require a hypo-allergenic finish and a non-reactive surface, it is the metal of choice. Stainless steel is strong enough for daily use as household objects and industrial parts, and this same strength makes it an excellent choice of material for jewelry. Its resistance to scratching allows jewelers to create attractive brushed or etched finishes that will retain their beauty for years. Stainless steel is most familiar as flatware, but it is also used extensively in architecture, aviation, and industry whenever a strong metal that resists corrosion is needed. Its association with industrial and architectural uses is part of its appeal for many. Although fashion jewelry and body jewelry is often made out of stainless steel, the alloy has also become popular for jewelry meant to be worn for a lifetime. Wedding jewelry in stainless steel offers the luster and durability of a precious metal in an attractive and affordable alternative material.
Resistance to Tarnish
Jewelry that never needs polishing is a boon to those who prefer low-maintenance accessories. Steel jewelry with intricate details may need occasional cleaning in an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner or with a polishing cloth, but it does not need regular buffing or tarnish removal. Wearing sterling silver is one of the best ways to keep it free from tarnish, but stainless steel jewelry will remain new-looking even after spending months in a jewelry box.
