Why we use Stainless Steel Chain & Findings

With its resistance to rust, oxidation and discoloration, this corrosion-resistant alloy is ideal for long lasting jewellery designs. It's also unplated and will not fade or chip over time. This metal is the best suggestion for those living in high-humidity locations, as the metal will keep from rusting much longer than other metals.

Jewellery made with these findings will endure heavy wear longer than those made with carbon steel and softer base metals. Jumprings and loops made in headpins and wire are less likely to come open under the weight of pendants or multi-layer designs. We use this metal for all our chain and findings within our designs.

Because many stainless steel jewellery making supplies are unplated, they are an excellent alternative for wearers with allergies and sensitivity to base metals such as copper or brass. For designs where the findings will be in close contact with the wearer's skin (especially in the summer-time when heat often exaggerates the reaction to skin) unplated stainless steel is one of the best options available. Stainless steel is generally considered hypoallergenic for most people. 

Properties of Stainless Steel

Stainless steel contains at least 10% chromium and, depending on the grade of the stainless steel, it may include smaller percentages of  titanium, niobium and other metals. The percentage of chromium is significant because chromium combines with oxygen to form a thin, invisible layer of chrome-containing oxide. This protective layer is what makes stainless steel "stainless." Unlike the title, stainless steel is not actually stainless, just extremely resistant to corrosion.

There are two different grades of stainless steel that we offers: Type 304, the most common type, and type 316L, which contains 2-3% molybdenum for even more corrosion resistance. All of this may seem overly technical, but don't worry, what it all means is that by using stainless steel findings, we are providing non corrosive long wear and industrial-grade strength to our designs.
