Ion Plating and Your Jewelry
With Ion Plating not only do you get strength and durability, but you also get beautiful pieces that have an everlasting shine. Ion plating, also called IP, is a physical vapor deposition, a not so new technique that has recently gained attention for its application on stainless steel jewelry to enhance the finish.
Why Ion Plating?
Stainless steel is used in tons of applications for its natural strength. Being heavy duty to begin with, when adding a finish. The IP plating is thinner than traditional plantings, which means it is light weight and cost effective, while providing the durability you need and classy look you want.
The Benefits of IP Jewelry
Besides the lifespan and durability of Ion Plated jewelry, it also has the benefit of being hypoallergenic. Plus, stainless steel is a far more affordable alternative to precious metals which need more maintenance and may cause an allergic reaction in some people. Other platings can wear off causing the lesser quality metals to leave unsightly marks, this can never happen with stainless.
* More durable; acts as an extra layer of protection for jewelry
* Lasts longer than other platings
* Less maintenance and easier to clean
