Our jewellery is manufactured from many different materials, including surgical stainless steel, titanium, silver, gold (manufactured with a nickel-free alloy), pyrex, bioplast, PTFE, anodized steel, rhodium, buffalo horn and bone. We have added a short materials summary below.
For further information, data sheets, or any questions regarding the materials used to manufacture the jewellery, please feel free to contact us directly.
14ct & 18ct Yellow Gold
14ct Gold is 58% gold and 42% other alloys. 18ct Gold is 75% gold and 25% other alloys. 14ct gold is best suited for jewellery with threads and balls. 18ct is well suited for nose studs, but too soft to use for threaded jewellery. All our gold is biocompatible and made nickel free. It can be autoclaved and used for initial piercings.
18ct White Gold
18ct White Gold is alloyed without nickel, instead containing palladium, an inert element in the platinum family. It can be autoclaved and used for initial piercings.
Acrylic is a plastic that is commonly used for body jewellery. It can crack if soaked in disinfectant chemicals or under heat. It is a fragile material when made in smaller gauges. Evidence suggests that long term wear of acrylic can release harmful toxins from the plastic. Acrylic should only be worn temporarily. It cannot be autoclaved, and is not suitable for initial or healing piercings.
Black steel is 316L Steel with a Black PVD coating. The coating is extremely resistant to scratches, though can fade or chip over time. It can be autoclaved and used for initial piercings.
Bioplast is a biocompatible and medical grade flexible plastic. It contains no nickel. It is commonly used to make piercing retainers. It can be autoclaved and used for initial piercings.
Glass is a strong material, and biocompatible. It contains no nickel and certain types are extremely sturdy (Pyrex and Quartz glass). It is commonly used for retainers, ear plugs and heavy gauge facial piercings. It can be autoclaved and used for initial piercings.
Organic body jewellery is made from various natural materials such as Horn, Bone, Wood, Stone, and others. Organic body jewellery should not be worn in unhealed tissue. Organic materials are sensitive to changes in heat and humidity. Autoclaving, use in water or extreme heat can cause damage to the jewellery and is not recommended. Organics should be oiled regularly. Organics can absorb oils and sweat from the skin, and therefore reduce odours. It should not be used for initial piercings.
PTFE is also known as Teflon. It is flexible and can be cut to any desired length. It can be sterilized (up to 260 degrees) and does not cause any allergic reactions (nickel free). It has a very smooth ‘non-stick’ surface, and can be worn long term. It can be autoclaved and used for initial piercings.
Silicone is a soft and flexible material, commonly worn in stretched ears. It has a ‘sticky’ surface and should not be worn in fresh or unhealed piercings. It should not be used for initial piercings.
Surgical Steel 316L
SS316L is a surgical implant grade material. It is the most commonly used material for body jewellery. Although this high grade of Steel does contain nickel, they do not release nickel salts into the body and do not induce nickel dermatitis. It can be autoclaved and used for initial piercings.
Titanium is ideal for both initial body piercing and healed piercings as it is compliant with the EU Nickel Directive introduced in Europe in 2001. Grade Ti6AL-4V Titanium is biocompatible and has been used since the 1950’s for medical implants. It is available in High Polish, which resembles Steel. It can also be anodized into a multitude of colours. Titanium is only half the weight of Steel, and twice as strong.
Grade 23 Titanium has been given an ‘F’ prefix by the ASTM (F-136), signifying its status as an approved medical grade material. No higher qualification exists. It can be autoclaved and used for initial piercings.
Zircon Gold Titanium
Zircon Gold is G23 Titanium coated with Zirconium nitride, and has been tested and certified as biocompatible for external and internal medical devices. No gold or palladium is added to the formula. The coating is extremely resistant to scratches, though can fade or chip over time. It can be autoclaved and used for initial piercings.
Our jewellery is manufactured in different locations across the world. Metal jewellery is mainly made in Korea and Thailand, the tribal jewellery is hand made in Borneo and many specialized materials are manufactured in Europe.
Your Jewellery will not be pre sterilized. All jewellery should be sterilized before use. We recommend using warm salt water or ear- care for external items. For oral items Listerine can be used. Do not use hot water as it may weaken / damage selected items.
Jewellery with dangles are occasional wear items and shouldn`t be worn while doing sports or when going to bed.
Jewellery with clusters of little stones are occasional wear and should avoid being worn in water as the stones are only glued in and may come out.
Plastic balls, silicon plugs, bioplast or PTFE items may break or weaken if screwed on too tight, bitten or sterilized in hot water.
Dice with jewels, capsules, silicon spikey balls, picture balls or items with small attachments are novelty items only. They should not be worn for prolonged periods of time or while eating as parts may break off creating a choking hazard.
HOW TO AVOID DISCOLOURATION
Drinking coke, coffee, red wine or smoking may cause some jewellery to discolour. Other factors which may cause jewellery to discolour are hair dyes, make up removers and repeated exposure to other chemicals.
CARING FOR JEWELLERY WITH STONES
Chemicals may affect the glue used to hold parts of the jewellery together. For all jewellery including jewelled balls, nose studs, bioplast labrets, eyebrow bars and jewelled plugs clear nail polish can be painted over the stones to help hold them in and stop the stones from discolouring.
GOLD PLATED JEWELLERY is surgical steel with 24ct gold plating so it should not cause any skin irritation, however as with any gold plated jewellery the plating may come off with time. We ultimately suggest using this item as an occasional wear.
