Stainless Steel Necklace - Jewelry for Every Man
Traditionally, when men wore jewelry, it was symbolic of status, clanship or bravery. Indeed, ornamentation for men in ancient times was used to enhance the accessories that supported their roles in society, whether it was as a warrior, a blacksmith or a king. Everything from helmets and swords to crest on shields and rings for men raised metal craft to a level beyond what we would call jewelry today.
It is the image of these times, when the metal that has become what we call stainless steel today, was used to forge one of the ultimate symbols of manhood, the sword. The same proud craftsmanship is brought to bear in the stainless steel necklaces for men, the gleam of stainless steel connects to the underlying emotion of courage that men find a natural extension of their essence.
The brilliant sheen of stainless steel is due to its chromium content; it must contain at least 10.5% chromium to remain "stainless." This is the element that reacts with the oxygen in the air to form an invisible surface layer that prevents corrosion. The higher the amount of chromium, the more resistant the material will be to corrosion.
For those with allergies, the best stainless steel jewelry is made without nickel, making it magnetic in nature. There are many people who have allergies to nickel metal and hence, have turned to stainless steel jewelry. In modern times, it is the hypo allergenic properties of stainless steel that made it the metal of choice for surgical instruments and naturally evolved to be the metal best for jewelry used in body piercing.
But the designs crafted by jewelers today are far from the sterile concept of surgical steel; stainless steel jewelry appeals to a wide variety of men who like the idea of wearing a stainless steel necklace, bracelet or chain because it is definitively masculine, a nearly indestructible alloy.
