6pair of stainless steel clip earring jewelry findings with 10mm gluing pad tray S4036
Sold in sets of 6 pairs (1 dozen pieces) 10mm pad for gluing. Light weight economy earclip. Made from 304 stainless steel a popular substitute for plated silver for good reason. It has no plating on it to wear off. It is stronger then base metal. Stainless is used in lots of medical equipment, the food industry and even marine applications where it is highly resistant to corrosion and tarnish. This corrosion-resistant alloy is ideal for long-lasting jewelry designs and will not fade or chip over time. Grit or grime on it can easily be removed with soap and water. Great for those living in high-humidity locations because the metal will keep from rusting much longer than other metals. Considered hypoallergenic....... Jewelry that has been classified as hypoallergenic means it contains little to no potentially irritating alloys.
The color of Stainless is a bit grayer then sterling. My personal opinion is there is no problem pairing a sterling with a stainless. Close enough in color, it will appear to match. While stainless is going to cost more then very cheap base metal chains, it will be far below the cost of a real sterling. If you are selling jewelry, you can consider stainless as an up-sell to your customer.
