We get a lot of questions about stainless steel, such as- what's the difference between steel and stainless steel, what are the benefits and who usually buys it? We have interviewed Dave Gariepy, the owner of Garlan Chain and asked these questions...
Q: What's the difference between "regular steel" and "stainless steel"? A: Aside from them being different metallic alloys, the main difference that applies to chain used for jewelry is stainless steel is non-corrosive, meaning it doesn't rust, stain or corrode easily. It's also hypo allergenic and you can use it without a protective finish.
Q: What are the benefits of choosing stainless steel? A: If you need durability and a silver color, this is an excellent choice. In fact, the more you wear it, the better it looks...it's self polishing jewelry. Also, since it's not necessary to plate the metal, it's a great option if you wear it in the shower, swimming or the ocean - it's hard to destroy!
Q: Who uses stainless steel chain? A: In the fashion and jewelry sector, our biggest customers use it for men's jewelry, religious fashion wear, athletic wear and medical jewelry. Basically, jewelry you intend to wear a lot!
Q: What are the most popular styles? A: Curb, cable, double curb & rope.
Q: How much does it cost? A: It's a non-precious metal, so it's really inexpensive. It's about a tenth of the cost of sterling silver.
Q: Is there anything else you think is important for our customers to know about stainless steel chain from Garlan Chain? A: We also manufacture stainless steel jump rings and have stainless findings with the ability to assemble into finished necklaces or bracelets.Check out our website for our complete line of chains here...
