What is Stainless Steel and what makes Stainless Steel jewelry stands out?

Why would I choose Stainless Steel jewelry when I can get other metals like Sterling Silver? What makes Stainless Steel jewelry stand out?

First things first: What is Stainless Steel?

Stainless Steel is a very versatility, strong, resistant and affordable metal. The Stainless Steel alloy has a mix of chromium, iron, nickel and titanium. Because it looks much like Silver, most people have embraced it as their favorite type of jewelry today. Unlike Silver, Stainless Steel doesn't tarnish or rust, and will never lose its luster and shine.

Stainless Steel is hypoallergenic. So even is you have a sensitive skin, Stainless Steel will (in almost every case) not cause you any allergic reactions. And it's very lightweight as well. That means that it is comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Yes, even the big statement pieces!


Not only is Stainless Steel a very affordable material, it is also more resistant than Gold and Silver. It doesn’t scratch easily and can hold up well to the sun, sand and sea. And it doesn't require a lot of care to keep it's natural shine either.


Stainless Steel jewelry is super fashionable and trendy, so you can wear it anywhere and anytime. Whether you opt for a formal or non-formal look, Stainless Steel jewelry always works.


Stainless Steel is the most ecologically friendly metal that gets used in jewelry making. When it comes to production, the energy used and waste produced, it is a lot less than other metals in the market. And above all that: Stainless Steel is 100% recyclable.

Stainless Steel is water-resistant, but it can be susceptible to chlorine. My advice on taking care of your jewelry (all types of jewelry) is always: Take it off while showering, doing the dishes, swimming,... This way you are sure to be able to enjoy your favorite jewelry pieces for many years.

Lots of jewelry pieces in our collections contain Stainless Steel jewelry parts. You can find them in our Fine Jewelry collection as well as in big Statement pieces.

Earrings, bracelets, necklaces,... Stainless Steel is a material that is frequently used for all types of jewelry. Nowadays it is even a very popular material for wedding rings thanks to its toughness and beautiful shine.

So if you are planning on buying Stainless Steel jewelry, you have definitely made the right decision. Not only is it more affordable, it also looks good with every single outfit!
