Waterproof? How?

Just like many many jewellery lovers we got sick and tired seeing our beloved jewellery becoming tarnished and rubbing colour onto our skin.

Water, swimming, exercising would quickly cause damage to jewellery but not Katyb Jewellery.

All of our jewellery is made from the highest quality stainless steel, then plated with gold / rose gold using a technique called ION plating.  Stainless steel is our favourite choice as it is considered a strong, affordable alternative to precious metals, without compromising on the look of the piece. Also, Stainless Steel is more durable and hypoallergenic compared to other metals.

Ion Plating is metal bonding at the molecular level. It involves adding a titanium nitride layer to the base metal, in a vapor form. This new modern way of plating is far thicker than standard plating, is enviromentally friendly and uses a vacuum coating process, resulting in an extremely durable finish.

When Ion Plating is combined with Stainless Steel, the result is a heavy-duty, hypoallergenic piece that wears alot slower than jewellery with traditional plating methods. And caring for our jewellery that has been Ion Plated is easy. Thanks to the nature of this process, most standard care routines work just fine.

So all of this means that your jewellery is WATERPROOF. So go along with your normal daily routine without having to remember to remove jewellery....They will never tarnish!
