Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What grade of stainless steel is used in the jewelry and watches?
A: The most commonly used stainless steel for jewelry and watches is 316L. It can be refinished by any jeweler and will not oxidize or turn black. Stainless steel does not readily corrode, rust, or stain with water as ordinary steel does. Other grades of stainless steel with the same attributes are occasionally used depending on the method of manufacturing. Stainless steel is used where both the properties of steel and resistance to corrosion are required.
Q: Will it turn color or tarnish?
A: Stainless steel will not tarnish or turn color.
Q: Can it be worn in the shower or when swimming?
A: Yes. Stainless steel does not readily corrode, rust, or stain with water as ordinary steel does. However, watches should be removed before showering, swimming, or immersing hands or arms in water.
Q: Are there any special cleaning instructions?
A: Wipe clean with a jewelry cleaning cloth.
Q: What color is the metal? Is it bright silver like sterling or more of dark gray silver like gunmetal?
A: The color of the metal is similar to that of platinum. It's darker than silver and a beautiful metal to wear.
