Materials for Body Jewelry

Surgical Stainless Steel

Surgical stainless steel is also known as 316L and Implant grade steel is a steel alloy that is the most common body piercing material. It can be polished to a shiny surface, and many people prefer this material to titanium because of its luster.

316 surgical steel is used in the manufacture and handling of food and pharmaceutical products where it is often required in order to minimize metallic contamination. It is also used in the manufacture of body jewelry and body modification implants.

Many of our Steel body jewelry items have been electropolished, which is a sophisticated surface finishing echnique, where electrochemical activity slowly erodes a thin layer from the surface of the jewelry resulting in MICROSMOOTHING. The resultant surface is ultra smooth and crevice free. It has a higher surface integrity and efficiency than jewelry polished by other means.

Titanium

Titanium body jewelry is often manufactured in commercially pure grade 23 Ti6AL4V ELI, also known as Implant Grade Titanium.

The grade considered suitable for piercing jewellery use is a disputed topic however the only Grade recommended for use by the association of professional piercers remains Grade 23 Titanium (ASTM F136).

Titanium jewelry is lightweight (around 60% the weight of stainless steel given the same volume), it is highly corrosion resistant and less likely to react with body fluids, is not magnetic, it can be anodized to create a layer of colored oxide on the surface. Common colors are yellow, blue, purple, green, and rainbow.
