Body Jewellery Ins and Outs (pardon the pun)

Body Jewellery Materials

If you're new to the world of belly rings and body jewellery, you're probably very confused by the huge variety of belly ring materials available, the fluctuating price ranges and how to find the best type for you. Let us simplify it for you.


Surgical Steel

Perfect for most skin types and suitable for piercings that are healing, in fact your body piercer will most like use surgical steel to implant your first belly bar! Surgical steel belly rings are affordable and come in a HUGE variety of styles. If you have metal allergies, keep in mind that the dangles that hang from surgical steel jewellery can sometimes contain nickels depending on the style, for those with nickel allergies you should opt for the basics (no dangles) or try our collection of solid silver and solid gold belly rings as mentioned below.



Titan™ Titanium

The best option for fast healing coupled with low allergenic. Titanium is the preferred material used by professional body piercers due to the healing time being accelerated and the chances of rejection and infection considerably minimized.

Our full range of titanium belly rings in this collection are 100% non-hypoallergenic and comprised of premium grade titanium (G23) with no other hidden materials.

The titanium used in our products is "TITANIUM 6AL4V-ELI ASTM F-136" which is suitable for use in the biomedical and medical fields as well as for a wide range of industrial applications. In this alloy, the interstitial elements such as oxygen, carbon and iron are deliberately kept low.


Plated Body Jewellery

Our gold plated belly rings are either 100% surgical steel or 100% solid titanium, and then treated (heat blasted) with gold PVD plating for a shiny, sophisticated finish. Gold plated belly jewellery is NOT suited to everyone, it should be avoided for new piercings and people with metal allergies. It is not intended for everyday wear as the plating can fade/tarnish with frequent exposure to water. See below for more information about PVD use in body jewellery.

PVD versus Anodising

PVD Plating

PVD plating is the preferred finish for body jewellery (rather than anodising) as it creates a durable, anti-corrosive, scratch resistant surface for a variety of metals, including stainless steel and titanium. Anodising is still suitable for body jewellery, however, with anodising, the jewellery is dipped in the plating finish rather than heat blasted and this tends to fade faster than PVD.

PVD produces a wide range of colours and finishes, including matte, shiny, and brushed in shades of gold, rose gold, black, rainbow, greens, blues, pinks, purples and many more.
