Iron based alloys have a medical history extending over three hundred years. Corrosion resistant stainless steels were developed in the 18th century, containing a minimum of 10% chromium. As Technology developed, this unique surgical implant material evolved as well and achieved its inert characteristics through the formation of an invisible and adherent chromium-rich oxide surface film.
The most oxidization resistant steels are 300 series steels and are mostly used for material implants as well as for body jewelry. Our jewelry uses a high grade steel from 300 series called Grade316L, which are best suitable for invasive body piercing and do not release nickel salts into the body or induce contact nickel dermatitis.
All of our products are finished using a unique technique called Electro polishing, which is a sophisticated surface polishing technique, where electrochemical activity slowly eats away a thin surface layer from the jewelry surface, resulting in micro smoothing. The surface's result is extremely smooth.
