Your Guide to Choosing the RIGHT Navel Jewellery Material
If you're new to the world of belly rings, 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 Navel Jewellery
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.
Solid 925 Silver Belly Rings
Perfect for water wear and year round comfort, solid silver belly jewellery is a premium choice that will NOT flake, fade or peel with age. A simple polish will bring your silver belly rings back to shiny new. All of our silver navel rings are comprised entirely of 925 Sterling Silver including any dangling or attached pendants.
NOTE: 925 Silver is not suitable for new navel piercings that are still healing.
Solid Gold Body Jewellery
Another premium choice for your navel piercing that is suitable for water wear and year round comfort. Our solid gold belly rings come in a variety of styles by renowned designers including TummyToys and Maria Tash. All of our solid gold navel rings are comprised entirely of 14K or 18K gold including any dangling or attached charms. While solid gold belly rings are more costly, they will last much longer and provide a more sophisticated style.
Plated Belly Jewellery
Plated golds and plated titaniums are bargain priced but will fade over time with water exposure and body chemicals. They are a fantastic option for fun fashion navel jewellery without the price tag, but NOT suitable for piercings that are still healing.
Acrylic Belly Jewellery
So cheap, so bright and so much fun!! However, they are plastic and they won't last forever. Stock up on a variety of colours to mix and match with, but keep in mind that acrylic belly rings will only be suitable for short timeframes.
