Heartfelt Metal Bead Holders rusting???

Has anybody purchased the metal holders from heartfelt. They are supposed to be all stainless but mine are rusting and turned some of the beads brown. I was curious if anybody had the same issue. I contacted the owner but have not heard back

Beads will darken over time.

As far as the holders rusting I’ve know idea. Your idea about calling HF direct was probably your best answer. Hopefully they’ll get back to ya!

I definitely know they change color over time but this is definitely rust dark brown. The ones I have in plastic containers in my cabinet changed color but nothing like that

They offer 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Send them a pic and I’m sure they’ll do right by you.

Some grades of stainless have enough iron to rust. Also, a magnet will stick to it.

If a magnet won't stick to your stainless holder, it may not be rust.

I don't know what I don't know.

Yes if exposed to enough moisture. I have seen Firearms made from the best stainless turn an orange color.

The 416-R used for firearm barrels is "stainless" in name only and corrodes pretty easy, but not like carbon steel does.

I don't know what I don't know.

I was referring to stainless steel firearms like this colt 1911.
The frames and slides will get an orange hue to them
If exposed to enough moisture.
It wipes off easily with WD- 40 and is harmless.
I have never seen a stainless firearm corrode.
