Stainless Steel Products

Safe for anyone with nickel allergy, stainless steel products are durable and good-looking.  NoNickel carries stainless steel buckles, jewelry, and watches.

Stainless Steel alloys have many formulations and often include chromium, nickel, and molybdenum – chromium gives the metal its scratch resistance, nickel provides a smooth and polished finish, molybdenum gives greater hardness.  

Surgical Steel typically contain nickel, but certain formulations and processes utilized in its manufacture, create a very tight bond where the nickel salts do not  leach out and cause a nickel allergic reaction. Stainless steel should be tested prior to use by those with nickel allergy. 

Characteristics:  Stainless Steel does not corrode, rust or stain. Its strength is similar to steel and features a highly lustrous and durable finish.

How to Measure Your Belt Size

Most of our belts are sized from the Buckle Fold to the Middle Hole. A 36” belt will have a center hole at 36” and two holes on either side of the center spaced 1” apart each. A 36” belt can be worn as small as 34” and as big as 38”.

There are several options to determine your ideal belt size.

The ideal way is to measure your waist through your belt loops. This measurement is the size of belt you should purchase (i.e. if you have a 34” measurement, order a 34” belt).

An alternative option is to measure your old belt from the  Buckle Fold to the Hole you use. If your belt measures 38” from buckle fold to the hole you use most; then order a 38” belt. This will give you a belt with 2 holes either side of the hole you use most.
