The chromium oxide film that prevents tarnish and rust forming on stainless steel makes it a popular option among jewelers today. It is safe to wear this women’s IP brown ring when taking showers, going to the beach and doing household chores such as laundry and washing dishes.
IP stands for ion plated. A layer of titanium nitride is added to the base surface of stainless steel. Steel is a naturally hard metal and when it is ion plated it makes the object durable and resistant to scratches. IP jewelry lasts longer than gold plated jewelry.
