ABOUT JEWELRY BASE METALS
If you're looking for jewelry that will last for a long time, then you will need to understand the quality of your jewelry. Have you ever bought cheap jewelry, only to have it turn your skin green or the jewelry will become discolored? Most likely the jewelry is made from cheap materials like copper or brass. Your skin turns green because the metal oxidizes and reacts with the sweat and oils from your body. With time, copper and brass jewelry will tarnish and oxidize, only leaving you with a piece of jewelry that can't be worn again.
STAINLESS STEEL JEWELRY
Our jewelry is made with either stainless steel or sterling silver and plated with gold. Stainless steel is an extremely durable and sturdy material which makes it great for everyday wear. Stainless steel jewelry is also water resistant so even if you forget to take off your jewelry before showering, you'll be fine! This metal is also best known for being hypoallergenic so it is also great for those with sensitive skin. Maintaining stainless steel jewelry is also a lot easier as you won’t need to have special cleaning solution to care for your jewelry.
