Here at EireEcoRings we pride ourselves in being able to say we make all our stainless-steel rings from start to finish enabling us to guarantee all our customers that their new ring is 100% handmade. We start off with solid round bars of medical grade 316l stainless steel which we machine ourselves on our metal lathe to whatever size and design meets our customer’s needs. we would never consider using any of the many ring blanks/centres that can be purchased online, “if we did our rings would not be 100% handmade”.
OUR STAINLESS-STEEL RINGS ARE ECO FRIENDLY.
As always in keeping with our ethos of “Eco friendly” we have sourced a supplier of solid round bars of recycled
medical grade 316l stainless steel to use in the crafting of our rings. The properties of stainless steel have made it very important in health care, with it being a primary component of most surgical instruments. Stainless steel production has increased substantially, doubling in the last decade alone. More than 25 million tons of stainless steel are produced every year, so because of this, stainless steel recycling is extremely important in maintaining the supply of this important material. By recycling just one ton of stainless steel, you would save approximately 1,100 kg of iron ore, 630 kg of coal, and 55 kg of limestone. Our stainless steel rings are an Eco-friendly option for a green wedding ring. The production of stainless steel uses a lot less waste and energy than other metals and stainless steel is 100% recyclable.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT A STAINLESS STEEL RING
Stainless steel and titanium are just two of the traditional metals used to make men and women's wedding band rings. Both metals are exquisite and equally possess their own unique sets of qualities and strengths.
STAINLESS STEEL is virtually scratch-resistant so you can travel, work, play, or engage in everyday activities while wearing a stainless steel ring and not worry. It also means it is more likely than not that your stainless steel ring will last a lifetime totally unblemished. The best upkeep for a stainless steel ring is to just wear it, your natural skin oils will maintain the luster and newness of the ring. While strong, a stainless steel wedding ring can be removed in an emergency situation using regular ring cutting tool and if it’s a detail that matters to you, stainless steel is a poor conductor of heat and electricity. The thermal conductivity of gold is 310 and silver is 429, whereas most types of stainless steel have a thermal conductivity of around 16.
Since 1990s Titanium is a popular and still a modern choice, it is approximately three to four times stronger than stainless steel, which means its lifespan over generations is slightly longer. However, titanium can and will scratch, so its care entails routine polishing, or unlike stainless steel it will becoming dull and scratched. In addition to high durability and resistance to scratches, corrosion and tarnish, our stainless steel rings are surprisingly affordable. While our rings have the look of platinum, they have a price tag that is more in line with a titanium or tungsten ring without compromising on quality.
*****NB: It is important for you to be professionally sized before you purchase a ring as a stainless steel ring cannot be resized.
When being sized for a ring it is important to remember the WIDTH of the ring will be a major factor in determining the size of the ring you require. Be sure to get sized with the appropriate width of ring you are considering purchasing from us.
