Stainless steel is extremely strong and durable. It does not tarnish, corrode (will never go black) and will not discolour your skin. It is a hypo allergenic, making it perfect for those with skin irritations and allergies. Stainless Steel is becoming more and more popular in today's market because it is more cost effective, making it a quality, affordable choice for jewellery.
Stainless Steel can be Ion Plated in Gold or Rose Gold and polished to a high shine.
The process used is for our Gold and Rose Gold pendants and charms is IP Plating (Ion plating). The center of the circle is Stainless Steel followed by a layer of titanium nitride used as a bonding agent, finished with a layer of 18ct gold or rose gold, all fused together to produce a harder and more durable coating with a higher brightness than that produced through traditional plating methods.
It is really hard to determine a specific length of wear for plating as it will depend on the condition of use. The plating method used is quite advanced and is designed not to rub away quickly.
If there is high exposure to rubbing there can possibly be some wearing, this could happen when one bracelet is worn with another or wearing jewellery during heavy duties like cleaning, rubbing against a desk at work, etc. Contact with harsh chemicals like aerogaurds or cleaning products could cause fading or chemical reactions as some chemicals which seem harmless contain hidden stripping agents in them. However, our plating will never chip like other methods of plating and it will never turn green.
A piece may start to look dull due to natural body oil, dirt, grime and acidic residue build up over time. When cleaning stainless steel jewellery there is no need to use chemicals. You can simply wash your pieces in some water or the shower and dry thoroughly with a cotton cloth.
