As mentioned previously our base level jewelry is surgical steel. Originally designed for use in the medical field, 316L surgical steel has permeated the entire jewelry market due to its reputation as a capable and compatible metal alloy. The downside to 316L surgical steel is the inclusion of Nickel as part of its mixture. While most people do not have an allergy or sensitivity to this metal its is a growing concern. In response to this developing sensitivity, most jewelry companies have expanded their production to also include Ti6Al4V implant-grade titanium. This nickel-free metal is used for surgical implants such as knee and hip replacements. It is specifically engineered for biocompatibility. We also sell some other nickel-free options in other Niobium and Gold.
Given the labor involved with the refinement of Titanium and Niobium, they do have a bit higher price tag. We work to keep our prices as reasonable as we can and take steps to keep the end users and their budgets in mind. Gold is one area where there will always be more difficulty in balancing quality and overall cost. We have found a gold vendor that is producing high-quality jewelry at a reasonable rate. With the cost of gold fluctuating and growing pretty consistently over the last several years, we have tried to absorb as much of the fluctuation as we can to save you money.
In most cases, no. Rings have a tendency to move around a lot and promote both scar tissue and infection. A bigger footprint allows for more friction and an increased risk of snagging and bumping. There are some piercings such as the daith that actually accommodate a ring very well. Your best chance at healing a new piercing well is by starting with a post, downsizing in a month if appropriate and once the piercing is well healed and stable enough for a ring, have it swapped over.
Yes and no. It depends on what piercing and what type of jewelry you're starting with. No part of the gold plate should be inside the piercing channel. Simply, we can't pierce with a gold-plated ring or barbell. Only posts and barbells that are steel or titanium with gold-plated ends are acceptable starters. Even though the PVD gold plating style we stock is extremely durable, it is possible for the plating to dislodge and become a serious problem for your piercing.
