Bright aluminum is light, inexpensive and clean for aluminum. Rub-off is always an issue with any uncoated aluminum. Our bright aluminum is diamond drawn to give the cleanest and brightest possible finish - but its still subject to small amounts of grey ruboff. This material can vary in shine as well.
For rings that look like polished silver we recommend you get our Bright Silver Anodized Aluminum
