• About Stainless Steel:
High quality Stainless Steel 316 is revealing a new vista for jewelry designs, as you can now be adorned with indestructible fashion statements: looks just like Platinum but 1,000 times stronger, and much less expensive. It is clear, hard, radiant, very durable, it needs little maintenance, waterproof and will never tarnish, is not subjected to oxidation (if you swim with Our jewelry they will not rust) and wear and tear.
• About Tension Setting:
Thanks to the Steel's springiness we were able to set the stones or beads only by its shank, without the use of common prong and bezel settings, which tend to loosen with wear and tear. The stones overlook is fully exposed in its beauty and brilliance. The mounting is stronger than most conventional noble metals and one of the benefits is the elimination of the uncomfortable entanglement of prongs in wool clothing etc...
By statistical, practical and mechanical point of view this kind of setting will never loose the Stone. Only by the use of a special tool, a Stone can be de-mounted from this settings.
• About Safety:
In terms of safety: Stainless Steel 316 it is virtually allergy-safe (hypoallergenic). This is due to the fact that Stainless Steel 316 has only 10 to 14% of nickel in it and it is so tightly bound in the material that the leakage of nickel is below the threshold value set up by most of the countries.
• About Durability:
In terms of durability, Stainless Steel is superior to most of the precious metals and can survive the toughest abuse.
Stainless Steel although readily available, increases in value through Our designer's workmanship and handling of it, especially when combined with gold, silver, pearls, rubber (PVC), precious and semiprecious stones. Imperfections and scratches, from abuse, can be easily buffed-out without damaging the integrity of the piece, unlike other traditional alloys used in the manufacture of jewelry, which if bent, or "fixed" a number of times becomes thin and weak, resulting in the untimely loss of the piece altogether.
• About Work Process:
Our designs can't be duplicated by using casting techniques like traditional over-the-counter jewelry, manufactured of softer alloys: platinum, gold or silver, (that is stamped-out by machine or poured into molds, lost wax techniques), because each and every of our piece must to be worked totally by hand. Every piece of VT jewelry is hand-cut from its solid Stainless steel piece, cutting away the excess, leaving no seams, or dents spots, until the final result is reached and consequentially becomes one-of-a-kind.
• About Metal Finish:
We do give to Our jewelry two different finish depends to the design and also the kind of final effect we are trying to achieve. Mirror shine and soft brushed (satin finish). The mirror shine commonly called high polished; it's very much like the platinum polished look, and the brushed finish we particularly prefer, because it gives a dramatic modernist contrast with the Yellow gold and the Black pearl.
