Blue Steel Review and Giveaway Ends 11/2/12


Mike and I have been wanting new Wedding Bands for quite a long time. Our original bands -- well, they turned out not to be quite what we wanted, and truthfully, after 22 years, they had lost their luster.

I've been looking at the gorgeous rings from Blue Steel for a while now.  They are just so beautiful.
I have to tell you -- as soon as I saw the stunning Blue Diamond bands -- I was smitten.  Those were the bands I wanted. No question -- no doubt.

When given the chance to review Blue Steel, I jumped at the chance.

What do I like about the amazing rings? Everything. They are made of Surgical Stainless Steel (yes, just like the steel that surgeons use!) and Tungston Steel.  They're sturdy, hardy rings. They don't stain or tarnish.  I love that. Mike had to stop wearing his White Gold band for fear of destroying it in the field. That won't be an issue with these rings!

From the website:

   Versatile:
Stainless steel jewelry is very versatile. As previously mentioned, the reason that people buy jewelry differs from person to person. Some people buy it just to own something pretty, while others buy it to wear it and make themselves look more attractive in public. Some people also want to look more refined in public rather than attractive and once again wearing jewelry is a way to accomplish this. Regardless of what the circumstances are, there is a piece of stainless steel jewelry available that can help you fulfill those needs; making stainless steel jewelry very versatile.

Good Material: Gold and silver are both very beautiful materials and this is why historically a lot of jewelry and other pretty things were made from one or both of the two precious metals. One of the biggest problems with both, however, is that they both stain very easily. It is easy to smudge or strain gold and silver and for this reason jewelry of these materials needs to be handled very carefully and polished often. The same attention to detail is not a requirement with stainless steel and this makes it appealing to a number of different people.

Durable: When you consider durability, it is quite obvious that stainless steel outperforms either gold or silver. Stainless steel is not only a naturally hardy alloy (as it was created to be), but it is also an alloy that can handle a lot of wear and tear. This means that in the course of wearing jewelry that undergoes a lot of use (i.e. rings and bracelets), stainless steel jewelry will last quite a bit longer than its gold or silver counterparts. This is a bigger return on investment.

Mike and I have been wearing these for a little over a week now. I can't tell you how many people have come up to us and asked about them. People LOVE these beautifully unique rings.

The Blue Diamond band is stunning. A textured edge surrounds a deep blue interior band. The blue is... how to describe it? Deep, soothing, intense, the light gives it great depth and warmth. It's much like the ocean. That's one reason I chose this ring -- Mike and I met by the sea, married by the sea, and had our daughter by the sea. It truly fits our life together.


There is only major thing to remember when ordering one of these rings -- it CANNOT be re-sized.  So be sure to use Blue Steel's handy printable Ring Sizer Chart to ensure you get the size you need!


Browse their website and take a look at the rings, bracelets, pendants, earrings, and necklaces.  You'll be amazed and delighted at the variety and the beauty of their jewelry.  I am!
