What is stainless steel chain?

Stainless steel chain is, unsurprisingly, made from stainless steel, an alloy comprised of iron, chromium, and nickel. This combination of materials comes together to make a steel that does not rust, tarnish, or corrode over time.


Jewelery chains made from stainless steel are made by casting small links that are pinned, welded, or riveted together. Links tend to be hollow, twisted, round, or square with plenty of other options available on Monera's wholesale jewelry marketplace.


Together, these links form a chain that is both strong and flexible that jewelry manufacturers then turn into beautiful pieces, such as the Solid Flat Curve 6mm Steel chain.



Stainless steel chain sizing

The sizing of stainless steel chain refers to the size of the links it is comprised of.


For example, the Simple Snake Chain 1.2mm is made up of threaded links of stainless steel. These very small links are made within Monera's Bangkok factory. Precision-engineering allows hundreds of tiny 1.2mm links to interconnect seamlessly and create a "snake-like" effect with no visible joins.


On the other end of the scale, there are pieces such as the Steel Heavy Flat 6mm Box Chain. This uses open-faced, 6mm square links to create a contrasting chain that is both elegant and strong-looking thanks to it's larger components.


When buying wholesale stainless steel chain you will also notice a larger number in centimeters. This indicates the length of the entire chain with Monera Design offering various lengths on a lot of its products to cater for different markets and individuals.

Benefits of stainless steel chain

1.   Stainless steel chain is hypoallergenic

Unlike some other jewelry materials, stainless steel is hypoallergenic. This means it will not cause skin irritation and won’t cause tarnish to form over time. Stainless steel jewelry, whether it’s a chain, earring, ring, or body jewelry, can be safely worn all day including during exercise.

2.   More sustainable

As stainless steel chain is stronger than most other jewelry materials, it is also more sustainable. This is because it simply lasts longer. With softer metals, gems become lost, the surface becomes scratched, dull, dented, or worse.


Stainless steel, however, does not damage easily and does not find itself scrapped or in landfill. The production processes of stainless steel is also much greener than that of most other metals thanks to industry refinement and advances in renewable technology.
