SILVER (Stainless Steel) / GOLD (PVD Plated Stainless Steel)
Our martingale chains are made from rust-resistant stainless steel for extra durability. The Silver chain has a shiny metallic finish true to steel, while the Gold chain contains the same stainless steel with a Physical Vapour Deposit (PVD) coating that gives it a golden lustre with additional resistance to wear and tear.
Due to the method of coating, the Gold chain may come with minor spots that are not coated, and reveal the stainless steel chain beneath.
SOLID BRASS OR NICKEL PLATED BRASS (for all other hardware)
Our solid brass hardware has a longer lifespan than typical brass-plated or zinc alloy hardware commonly found in pet products. It's effectively rust-proof, and is also specially coated with a layer of clear lacquer for extra protection against tarnishing and scratches.
Our nickel plated brass hardware has the same durable solid brass hardware as a base, but is coated with nickel, which is highly corrosion-resistant, and gives the hardware a nice silvery shine.
