Stainless steel is a much under-rated jewellery choice, but Esa has loved it for a long time and has been converting thousands of jewellery lovers to the bright side! Regular jewellery wearers love steel for its water proof and sweat proof qualities. It's the perfect jewellery for working out and holidays (remember them?).
Yes - stainless steel reflects more light than it's biggest competitor, silver. As well as shining brighter on day one, it will still be shining as light and bright on day 365. Silver, meanwhile, will have accumulated a dark tarnish that requires careful polishing to remove from every crease and crevice.
Stainless steel is tough too. It won't dent and it is scratch-resistant. Your jewellery will look shiny and new for years to come, making those self-gifting treats feel like really good value for money. Stainless steel's strength means it can also be used as a setting for gems and jewels, unlike sterling silver or pure silver.
Pure silver is much too soft to make jewellery with, so it's often mixed with copper (usually) to toughen it up. If jewellery is sold as sterling silver but isn't stamped with a 925 or 926 mark, then it may be insufficient silver in the mix and likely to degrade.
ESA EVANS jewellery uses hypoallergenic stainless steel that is 100% nickel-free and often mistaken for sterling silver. As a by-product of manufacturing processes, stainless steel is a positive sustainable, aesthetic material of choice.
