I ordered a blue stainless steel ring for my husband online, because blue is his favourite color.. He has a silver coloured tungsten ring already, but I wanted him to get a rose gold one because I just got a rose gold ring and wanted something that would match if I felt the need to make him match me 😉 but it was only $7 and the same ebay seller sold a blue one, so I ordered it just for fun.. I am just wondering if anyone has experience with colored stainless steel and if it will wear off over time?

I didn’t know they made stainless steel in colors… fi loves silver but we found a stainless steel ring for him that he loved (the desing almost looks Mayan). I wonder if the color would wear/wash off over time? You think it’s like plating?

I would guess that it probably will wear because the blue is likely either plated or a patina. It could be that they dyed all the steel somehow in which case it would not fade.

@ummjustjessica: it is probably powder coated and they often do a clearcoat over it to protect it. am talking about coloured SS in general not specifically for rings but it is probably similar.
