Jeweller's Steel


As many of our repeat customers will know, Drizzle Jewellery use Jeweller’s Steel in our quest to provide you with the safest, strongest, least allergenic product possible.

More commonly known as stainless steel, Jeweller's Steel is an alloy of iron, carbon, chromium, and traces of other metals, which is highly resistant to rust or corrosion. An alloy is a mixture of metals or a mixture of a metal and another substance – steel itself is probably the most common alloy in our daily lives. Its main components are iron and carbon, and it is widely used because of its incredibly high tensile strength.

According to jewellery making website firemountaingems.com, stainless steel is commonly used in the production of surgical instruments – probably due to its hypoallergenic qualities when divorced from nickel. Jeweller’s steel is a type of stainless steel that is custom made for use in the jewellery industry. It retains the hypoallergenic properties and incredible strength of stainless steel while adding a delicate, decorative feel to the jewellery that it is used to make.
