A quality selection of jewelry can make a difference in the health of your piercing. Choosing high quality jewelry that is polished to a mirror finish will help to ensure that your body piercing wholesaler is in good condition and heals quickly. Poorly polished jewelry may be more porous and have a compromised biocompatibility, causing it to absorb body fluids and potentially irritate your piercing.
Can you sell old piercing jewelry?
Gold (14k or higher) and titanium are the most biocompatible metals available for body piercings. Other acceptable materials include glass made of fused quartz, lead-free soda lime and lead-free borosilicate; inert plastics like Tygon(r) and PTFE (Teflon(r)); and acrylic.
Silver is an unstable metal that tarnishes easily and is not appropriate for use in body piercings. Many piercees experience skin irritation and even rashes when they wear silver beads or charms that rest against their piercing holes, especially on the navel area.
Aluminum is similar to niobium in appearance, but long-term exposure to aluminum has been associated with neurological damage and alzheimer’s disease. This type of aluminum is not biocompatible and should never be used in body piercings.
