If you’re trying to decide on jewellery and the type you should wear, then this is quite a process. You may want something that is in fashion right now but it also needs to be in line with your style. Silver is not just for jewellery but is also a great choice for sterling silver baby gifts. You should think about getting jewellery that is comfortable as well as skin safe, especially if you want to wear it for many hours.
Two of the most popular metals in jewellery that are suitable for streetwear are pewter and stainless steel. We will now take a closer look at each of these metals to see which one is better for you or if both are suitable.
Stainless steel jewellery is rapidly growing in popularity. For one, this is a very strong metal and it is also doesn’t corrode. You can’t ruin this material which makes it the perfect type of jewellery metal to wear on an everyday basis and it will last you many, many years.
Now, if you happen to be wearing a stainless steel bracelet or ring and then you wash your hands many times throughout the day, you may think that this will harm your jewellery, but it won’t. Your bracelet or ring actually won’t become rusty as it is not like typical steel which would corrode.
Additionally, stainless steel can also be hypoallergenic. This means that it is made out of pure metals and it doesn’t contain nickel or if it does, it’s in extremely low amounts. Nickel is what is responsible for many people having an allergic reaction to jewellery.
If you tend to get rashes or your skin gets red when you wear certain types of jewellery, then you’re having an allergic reaction. So, when you purchase stainless steel jewellery, make sure that it also says that it is hypoallergenic. This will ensure that you can safely and comfortably wear it.
Next, we will look at jewellery made out of pewter which is a metal alloy that consists of tin. This is also a very popular jewellery material and it is more popular than stainless steel. When it comes to demand, pewter is only second to materials such as gold, platinum and silver. Additionally, pewter jewellery also looks beautiful and they are quite simple to care for.
Pewter doesn’t get tarnished very easily and it also doesn’t easily get scratched. This type of jewellery no longer contains lead as it did historically.
How to Care for Your Jewellery
These two types of jewellery are both fantastic options. They are both very strong while also being hypoallergenic and they don’t wear down easily. However, you should still care for them and handle them properly.
By taking care of your jewellery, this will ensure that it not only last longer but also looks its best. It is important to note that you should not wear this type of jewellery or any jewellery when you’re swimming, exercising or even when you’re handling chemicals.
It’s All Your Choice
So, you can choose either pewter, stainless steel or you can wear both. Once you do, you will be surprised how easy it is to maintain this jewellery and they will continue to look amazing. Look at different types and styles of bracelets, rings, necklaces etc. so that you can find pieces that fit your look and style.
