As it is strong enough for using on daily basis, you can’t go wrong with choosing stainless steel as the material for making jewelry. Steel and metals in general  play an important role in the creation of contemporary jewelry.

A short history of metals in jewelry making

i_jeweleryMetals are as old as human civilization and history of jewelry making dates back thousands years. Metals were used by ancient people – Mesopotamians, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans. The source of the word “metal” is unknown, but it is regarded that it could have come from a combination of the Greek word “metallin” and metallon (mine or metal).

Stainless steel was invented by Harry Brearley of the Brown & Firth Research Laboratories in 1913 and developed to be impervious to staining or corrosion. Today, stainless steel is very favourite of women and men who want an industrial, street look with a touch of flash. Stainless steel may be the right choice even over precious metals.
