Though there are many different types of material used in the manufacturing of jewelry one particular material stands out, stainless steel. This new wave of jewelry has become more popular over the last several years. The quality of this shiny metal is evident in its durability to stand the test of time. This metal over the years will maintain its look and eye appeal because of its remarkable resistance to corrosion and rust. This stain resistant alloy metal is also bright because it reflects light. It is basically made up of more than 50% Iron and more than 10.5% Chromium.
Buying stainless steel jewelry is an economical way to accessorize one’s wardrobe. Men’s and ladies’ rings, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are all part of the wide array of items created in this fashionable jewelry. The high polished shine of the silver metal gives it the look of white gold but comparatively costs pennies on the dollar as to the cost of gold. Using today’s technology, gold plating and different colored dyes are used in producing some very artistically designed pieces.
Another material that is used in manufacturing Stainless Steel jewelry is Ruber derived from rubber compounds. Ruber (pronounced Ru-bur) is very durable and attractive. It contains Carbon Fibers that are lighter than aluminum and stronger than steel. The black contrast to the silvery shiny metal compliments its overall desirability. Though it is fairly new to the U.S. its popularity in Europe has grown over the past 10 years.
