At Bijoux Pépine, all jewelry is handcrafted from natural materials and associated with high quality nickel-free stainless steel.
We often have questions about this metal alloy so to help you understand why you should choose stainless steel and why we use it for our designs, we suggest you read this article. Hopefully, it can help you find the perfect piece of jewelry.
Stainless steel jewelry is incredibly long-lasting
First of all, you might be wondering, but what is stainless steel? It is a metal alloy of iron, chromium and carbon. A very solid alloy which is said to be unalterable and has a very strong built-in corrosion resistance and does not oxidize. This means it will not turn black nor leave a green deposit on your skin... Such annoying side effects of poor quality jewelry or pieces that contain nickel.
Thanks to its composition, stainless steel is robust. It leads to the creation of pieces of jewelry that resist daily aggressions and last over time with no deterioration.
One of the great advantages of stainless steel is that it is water and sweat resistant. It is highly resistant to corrosion and therefore it is a material that does not rust.
The jewelry will keep all its shine as well as its shape, it will prove to be very durable and you will be able to keep it for a long time and wear it so often!
Hypoallergenic jewelry: earrings for sensitive ears
Some skin types, in particular the most fragile, suffer from allergic reactions caused by contact with harmful substances. If your skin is sensitive or if the materials used are of poor quality, there is a risk of itching, redness and even pain.
To protect your skin, choose hypoallergenic jewelry and therefore stainless steel is the best choice since it has no nickel in it and it is this metal that is responsible for many allergic reactions.
Indeed, up to 20% of women are allergic to nickel on contact! It is therefore obviously something to avoid and not wear and definitely not have in contact with your skin.
Stainless steel jewelry, hypoallergenic earrings, necklaces, bracelets ... can therefore be worn without fear and on a daily basis since they are non-allergenic (except in very rare cases or if the correct alloy is not respected, hence the utmost importance of buying jewelry from a trusted designer).
In addition, stainless steel is a very light metal and therefore leads to the creation of very comfy jewelry to wear all day long or during special events.
