Stainless Steel

Stainless SteelSimply put, water does not cause stainless steel to rust, corrode, or stain like regular steel. This does not mean it is entirely invincible or stain-proof, because environments with low oxygen or high saline can cause deterioration, but it is better than alternatives. The addition of 10.5% chromium is what makes this rust-proof advantage possible.

Normal Uses for the Metal

Stainless steel is used in jewelry, but it is also used in cookware, cutlery, industrial equipment, surgical tools, automobiles, and aerospace structures. The Gateway Arch in St. Louis is covered in 886 tons of stainless steel to keep it safe from the elements.

As you can see, the precious metal is very efficient at its purpose, which is why it is commonly used in jewelry-making. If you need a piece to wear on a daily basis, like a cross pendant necklace, consider the anti-corrosive properties of stainless steel.
