History of Zinc Alloy
Zinc Alloy was first used to create jewelry way back in 1400 BC. The ancient Romans used zinc alloy. However, they did not truly understand this element. India was the first to recognize that zinc is a different metal. People in India figured out how to refine this material on a large scale between 1100 and 1500.
However, it was not until 1668 that a man named P. Moras de Respour, actually extracted zinc to be separated from zinc oxice. And a German man named Andreas Marggraf was able to figure out that this was a brand new element way back in 1746.
If you have a metal allergy, you might want to choose a different type of ring. Some people have an allergy to zinc. While this is a rare allergen, it does still happen. So try on your ring multiple times before purchasing the ring. If you are allergic to zinc, your skin will become red, swollen, and itchy. If you have a reaction like this, make sure to return the ring and choose another metal that is more suitable.
Always choose a zinc alloy ring from a reputable jewelry dealer. You want to make sure the other metals that zinc is combined with are safe. For example, you want to be sure that lead is not used in the metal. Lead is incredibly toxic and is a neurotoxin. It is especially important that children never wear jewelry with lead in it. They are very susceptible to these toxins.
How to care for your zinc alloy ring?
Zinc alloy rings can tarnish if they are not properly care for daily. Try to keep your ring out of wet and damp conditions. Remove your ring before washing your hands and dry your hands thoroughly before putting your ring back on. We also recommend taking the ring off before hopping into the shower. And when you are not wearing the ring, please place it in an airtight container. You can throw in a silica gel packet to remove the moisture from the container.
This type of material can rust if exposed to water and damp air for too long. Zinc alloy will chemically react with oxygen to create a delicate layer of oxide. So make sure to keep the ring dry.
