Stainless steel is the world’s most popular metal choice when it comes to jewelry and there must be a reason why it has been adored by jewelry lovers all over the world for many years. Let’s talk about stainless steel as a metal choice in jewelry and why you should buy it.
Why buy stainless steel jewelry?
Why buy stainless steel jewelry?
1. It is affordable
One of the biggest reasons people like to buy and wear stainless steel jewelry is because it is affordable. Gold and silver jewelry can be rather expensive, so stainless steel is an excellent choice if you are looking for affordable jewelry. At CO88 our lowest priced jewelry goes all the way down to 12 euros! So definitely consider stainless steel jewelry if you are on a budget.
2. It is highly durable
The second reason a lot of jewelry lovers prefer stainless steel jewelry over other metals is because stainless steel is highly durable – unlike gold and silver jewelry that can break easily in comparison. Stainless steel is a specific steel type primarily made of iron, carbon and chromium, but may also contain other alloying elements. Because this metal is so strong, you can wear your favorite stainless steel jewelry any day and for any occasion without having the fear of it breaking apart. High quality stainless steel jewelry can withstand more than gold or silver jewelry and can usually be enjoyed for a long period of time, which is exactly what you would want from a piece of jewelry.
With stainless steel jewelry, you also will never have to worry about your favorite piece of jewelry ever tarnishing or discoloring. Stainless steel has long-lasting and anti-discoloration properties and is resistant to rusting and corrosion. It is the type of metal that does not even get damaged by air or water.
3. It is hypoallergenic and safe
If you are allergic to certain metals, stainless steel is your best bet. This metal is hypoallergenic and completely safe – unlike gold and silver that can cause allergic reactions – which makes this type of jewelry perfect for yourself or anyone you would like to gift jewelry to. Stainless steel jewelry will not cause any adverse effects on your skin or body. Enjoy your jewelry by wearing it without any worries!
4. It is easy to maintain
If you are anything like us, you love being able to enjoy wearing your jewelry whenever, wherever, without having to spend unnecessary costs and time in maintaining your jewelry’s look. Stainless steel does not get scratched or damaged as easily and it does not need to be polished or buffed as much as other metals such as gold, silver and platinum. We can therefore definitely add ‘low maintenance’ to the list of great things about stainless steel jewelry.
5. It is environmentally friendly
Stainless steel gets called the ‘green material’ due to its great recyclability. It is non-degradable and infinitely recyclable with an almost 100% recovery rate. At CO88 we are happy to contribute to the planet by putting as little to no burden on the environment by offering sustainable jewelry.
At CO88 we naturally are a fan of stainless steel jewelry. Whether that is because it is affordable, highly durable, safe, easy to maintain, sustainable or simply because of the appealing look and feel it gives off: stainless steel definitely deserves all the credit it has going for it. Now may be a good time to add some exceptional stainless steel jewelry to your collection!
