Why stainless steel jewellery packs more benefits than you knew

If you’re the kind of person who’s always out, living an active life, let’s just say that stainless steel jewellery has benefits that were practically designed just for you. It’s perfect if you want to look like an absolute baller even when you’re running around all day.

What are the benefits of stainless steel jewellery?

It kicks allergies’ ass

A lot of other metals could give you an allergic reaction when you wear jewellery made from them. Those metals could get your skin red, dry, and itchy… or even leave you with a nasty rash. Fortunately, if you’re wearing high-quality stainless steel bling, you ain’t gotta worry about that.

Good quality stainless steel jewellery is hypoallergenic. Now, no need to whip out a dictionary, this just means that it has a far lower chance of causing an allergic reaction. So, if you’ve got sensitive skin, stainless steel pieces are pretty much your best bet.

Tarnish stays far away

Ever bought a gorgeous piece, only for it to oxidize and lose its beauty? The chromium in stainless steel comes to your rescue here. Now, we aren’t going to get into a chemistry lesson out here, but don’t worry, all you need to know is that the chromium in your stainless steel jewellery protects it from rust, tarnish, and corrosion. Basically, stainless steel has a unique ability called self-passivation, which lets it create a film of corrosion resistant chromium oxide on its surface.

And guess what, this also means that you aren’t gonna get green marks on your skin when you remove your jewellery.

Getting it wet & sweaty won’t give you a panic attack

The fact that stainless steel jewellery tends to be sweat and water resistant means that you don’t need to take your bling off when you’re in the gym, jumping in the pool, playing your favorite sport, or doing other kinds of cardio 😏.

Sweat and water ain’t going to harm this kind of jewellery, so you can relax and kick back. The Bonus benefit - you get to wear your favorite pieces in the monsoons without worrying about the rain ruining them.

It’s as tough as Rocky Balboa

When Rocky said, “It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward”, he may have secretly been talking about stainless steel jewellery. High quality stainless steel jewellery tends to be rather durable, it can totally take a beating and still look like a million bucks (but yeah, that doesn’t mean you should go pounding it with a hammer).

This bling ain’t gonna break your bank

If you’re balling on a budget, you’ve just gotta go for stainless steel bling. It’s gonna make you feel like a million bucks without sending your bank balance to an early grave.

Rather than getting a single expensive piece that you’d have to end up wearing for all occasions (or skip wearing to work because its too loud), you could build an entire collection out of affordable stainless steel jewellery, allowing you to have minimalistic choices for the office and formal events, as well as statement pieces that you can wear when you’re hitting your favorite nightclub. 


Is stainless steel jewelry good for everyday wear?

Stainless steel jewelry is perfect for everyday use. Unlike expensive metals that could get scratched, stainless steel is durable and tough, which makes it the ideal choice for jewelry, especially if you’re doing things that would usually leave jewellery made from other metals with scratches. It’s also water and sweat resistant, so you can definitely wear it on a daily basis.

Does stainless steel jewelry last?

Stainless steel jewelry can last for a very long time and remain in great condition because stainless steel has it’s very own self-defense system built into it. It has the ability to form a protective layer of invisible chromium oxide on the surface of the stainless steel. This chromium oxide film is what makes stainless steel corrosion resistant. 

And here’s the coolest part, even if the film is damaged somehow, it can heal itself if there is even a small amount of oxygen available.

Know what that means? This bling got what it takes to last long whether you get it wet, sweat all over it, or even scratch it a bit. 😉

Does stainless steel jewelry turn dark?

No, stainless steel jewelry does not turn dark since it is resistant to tarnish and rust. The chromium content in stainless steel protects it by forming a layer of chromium oxide which is corrosion resistant and stops the jewelry from turning dark.
