Why are all our pieces made from stainless steel? Simple. Because stainless steel jewelry is the wave of the future. Because it’s affordable, durable, hypoallergenic and versatile, stainless steel jewelry comes with a whole host of benefits over its traditional counterparts:
It keeps things affordable!
One thing you might have noticed while browsing Thryfty is our pricing–compared to your traditional jewelry store, our pricing is much more accessible. This is because we believe that high-quality doesn’t necessarily have to break the bank. Plus, by keeping costs low, you’re free to get more pieces to mix and match. This means more unique fits and more possibilities. Using stainless steel is a big factor in our low prices. The most common alternative in silver-toned jewelry is sterling silver, but sterling silver costs around $18.00 an ounce... yikes. The use of sterling would’ve led to much higher upfront costs for the customer and that’s not exactly the most Thryfty idea (get it?).
It’s durable as hell and life-proof (that includes water!)
Just because we keep things cheap, doesn’t mean we skimp on quality. In fact, it’s the opposite! Because our jewelry is stainless steel, it can last much longer than expensive silver pieces that tarnish, or cheaply made copper and brass pieces that turn your skin green. You can wear our stainless steel jewelry with confidence knowing that will never happen. When we designed our jewelry, we knew we wanted to use materials that could keep up with busy lifestyles–because life doesn’t stop to baby your jewelry, and neither should you. That just isn’t practical for most people. Our use of stainless steel (and our 18k gold plating for our gold finish) lets you work, play, sweat and shower without fear of your jewelry getting ruined.
It’s hypoallergenic, so it won’t irritate sensitive skin.
Okay, there’s no sugar-coating this one. Making jewelry that most people can’t wear because of allergies is stupid. No one should have to choose between style and jacked up skin. This was a no-brainer. Our stainless steel jewelry is nickel free, so no worries there.
Versatile, because style is always changing.
Lastly, stainless steel is versatile as f*ck. Take a look at our starry ghost chain. The eyes on the pendant are a high-polish finish, while the body is matte. Our butterfly chain, on the other hand, features an attention-grabbing, high-polish finish. The sky’s the limit–you can mix and match as many looks as you want and choose the finishes that appeal to you.
When we weighed all the options, it was clear that stainless steel was the way to go. Our customers tend to agree; aside from uniqueness and style, many of our positive reviews come from the fact that our jewelry is so durable and doesn’t irritate their skin. Still skeptical?
