Stainless steel has been around for many years. Harry Brearley of England is credited as being the inventor of stainless steel when working on an erosion resistant alloy for gun barrels. Stainless steel is a metal composed of iron alloy and a minimum of 10.5% chromium. The addition of chromium makes the metal resistant to staining, corroding or oxidation. Stainless steel is a relatively hard, durable and affordable metal that's typically light grey in color.
Caring for your stainless steel jewelry is easy. In fact, you can ensure that your metal stays in peak condition by bringing it to your local Helzberg Diamonds store for a complimentary cleaning and inspection, or at home by using a solution of warm water and detergent-free soap with a soft bristled toothbrush.
