Stainless steel jewellery

Stainless steel is widely used for its versatility and shiny radiance. Major fashion jewellery designers such as Emporio Armani, DKNY and Skagen use stainless steel in their jewellery because it is tarnish resistant and versatile. Shiny, sleek and strong, stainless steel is perfect for a modern look or an affordable classic.

It is said that stainless steel was discovered by Harry Brearley while he was designing gun barrels in 1913. The eureka moment came to him when he noticed that a gun barrel that he had discarded weeks before had not corroded or tarnished. This is because stainless steel is a steel alloy and does not oxidise when exposed to air and rust.

Stainless steel is now used for all kinds of jewellery including earrings, necklaces and bracelets that stay looking as great as the day you bought it.
