How is Stainless Steel Jewellery Made?

With all the buzz around this new jewellery trend, you might find yourself asking, how is stainless steel jewellery made? The answer is surprisingly simple. Stainless steel is an alloy, meaning it is made up of more than one chemical element, usually a combination of iron, nitrogen, manganese, silicon, small traces of nickel, carbon, and chromium. These elements are then moulded together to shape the jewellery pieces.

Because of its chemical composition, this metal is highly durable when compared to its gold or silver counterparts. It is resistant to staining, tarnishing, and corrosion. Stainless steel jewellery is also environmentally friendly, using less energy and waste during the production process.
