Gold as Body Jewelry Material

14K Gold – Spiral

Gold is a beautiful and elegant material that is often used for jewelry. This noble metal is valuable and stunning so it’s not surprising that some of the most beautiful jewelry pieces in the world are made of gold.

Gold also makes a good body jewelry material. However, there are some things to keep in mind before you use any body jewelry piece made of gold. It’s vital to ensure safety and to know how to choose gold jewelry pieces properly. You need to know this info to use gold as body jewelry material properly.

What Gold to Use

Gold is a noble metal that’s often used for traditional jewelry as well as body jewelry. In order to be suitable for piercings, however, gold has to be of specific quality. This is important to keep in mind in order to keep your piercing safe and problem-free.

The first thing to think about is the purity. Pure gold is a very soft metal. It’s about as soft as lead so it’s not the best body jewelry material. All gold with purity higher than 18 is simply too soft. Such a soft metal can be easily scratched, which can lead to numerous problems. Scratches can easily hurt or irritate the body, so jewelry made of such soft gold is nod body friendly and definitely not safe to use.

Another thing to keep in mind are the alloys. These alloys are other metals and elements added to gold in order to improve its characteristics. All gold except for pure 24k gold contains alloys. These alloys make the metal harder and less prone to scratches and bending. However, these alloys can be irritants in some cases, so it’s vital to keep the gold’s purity high enough so the contents of alloys in the gold is low.

To strike a perfect balance between purity and hardness, it is recommended to use only 14k  gold for body jewelry (or perhaps 18k, in rarer cases). The best way to ensure safety is to use only 14k gold for body jewelry.

Perhaps the most important thing to ensure safety is to use only jewelry made of nickel-free gold. Nickel allergies are very serious so jewelry containing nickel should be avoided at all costs. That’s why it’s important to check that any body jewelry piece you wish to use is nickel-free.

Additional Tips

  • Gold plated and gold overlay jewelry is not recommended. It is not body-friendly and should be avoided. Same goes for gold-filled and vermeil jewelry. This jewelry is not really made of gold: the gold layer is too thin and can easily be scratched to reveal the underlying metal that might not be body-friendly at all. In order to avoid problems you should never use gold plated and similar jewelry as your body jewelry.
  • Gold is NOT recommended as initial jewelry. Piercings in healing (fresh piercings) should never use gold jewelry. Body fluids can easily corrode the base metals in the alloy and lead to discoloration of the surrounding tissue. It can also lead to gold allergy, in case the person is allergic to gold. For this reason, it’s best to avoid gold as initial jewelry material and stick to medical-grade materials such as titanium or 316LVM Surgical Steel.
  • Gold makes a good jewelry material for fully healed piercings, as long as it’s 14k and nickel-free.
  • The autoclaving process can sometimes discolor the gold, but it won’t make it unsafe to use.
  • Gold is usually available in at least two variants: yellow and white gold. Other types of gold can also be used for body jewelry, such as rose gold.
  • Gold jewelry should be kept clean and polished regularly in order to keep it shiny and keep its quality.

Large Gauge Jewelry Materials

Large gauge jewelry is typically used for stretched piercings. The most common type of a stretched piercing is stretched earlobe, but there are many other piercings that can be stretched with a great success (septum piercing, nipple piercing and various types of genital piercings, among the others).

All these stretched piercings require large gauge jewelry. This type of jewelry is made of many different materials. Some of the materials used for large gauge jewelry are popular materials used for other types of body jewelry, such as Surgical Steel, gold or titanium. On the other hand, large gauge jewelry can also be made of many other materials, first and foremost, numerous organic materials. This is what makes large gauge jewelry truly stylish and unique.

Metals

Large gauge jewelry is made of many different materials. Some of the materials are common body jewelry materials often used for other types of jewelry. The most common ones are popular body-friendly and medical-grade materials, such as 316LVM Surgical Steel or titanium. These materials are safe, durable and make a great choice for any body jewelry pieces, regardless of gauge.

If you like these metal jewelry pieces, you may choose between numerous large gauge Surgical Steel or titanium rings. Some of these rings are popular Captive Bead Rings, though you may choose other ring types, such as Screwball rings or Seamless rings.

Gold is another popular jewelry material. Gold jewelry can be made in any gauge, so you will find many large gauge gold pieces. When choosing gold jewelry, it’s important to make sure that the gold used is safe. It means it should not contain any harmful alloys, such as nickel. Nickel allergy is a serious problem so it’s important to use only nickel-free gold.

Organic Materials

Apart from popular body jewelry materials, large gauge jewelry has the advantage of using numerous exotic and organic materials. Some materials are too delicate to be used for small-gauge jewelry. With large gauges, however, there is no danger that the material would break. This is why there are so many materials used for large gauge jewelry only.

Organic materials are particularly popular for stretched piercing jewelry. Materials such as wood, stone, bone and horn or glass look wonderful in stretched piercings. These materials are carefully shaped to make large gauge jewelry for your stretched earlobes or another stretched jewelry types.

One advantage of these materials is that they allow the skin to breathe much better than with metal or acrylic. Another advantage are all those unique, organic colors and patterns you get with organic jewelry pieces. Since this type of jewelry is organic, each piece is truly unique and one of a kind.

One note about organic jewelry: it is very effective and beautiful, but it should be used for healed piercings only. This is why you should wait a bit after stretching to use them. Make sure that your stretched piercing is completely healed and infection-free before inserting any organic jewelry piece.

Additional Tips

  • In case you are unsure about jewelry size you have, use a gauge wheel. Gauge wheels are handy tools for measuring your jewelry so you can always choose jewelry of the appropriate size for your stretched piercing. When in doubt, use a gauge wheel so you won’t make a mistake and wear jewelry that doesn’t fit.
  • Organic materials are often porous, which means they make a good place for various bacteria. This is why it’s so important that your piercing is fully healed and stretched properly before you use any organic jewelry pieces.
  • In case you notice any redness, itching, infection, migration or rejection, do not ignore it. Take your jewelry out and replace it with a jewelry piece you’ve worn without a problem. If the problem persist, consult your doctor. You might need to retire a piercing or go back to a smaller gauge, but it’s a small price to pay. You should never allow for a piercing to get infected even if it means that you wouldn’t be able to wear your favorite jewelry piece.
  • Some materials are heavier than the others. Keep this in mind when ordering your large gauge jewelry. For example, Surgical Steel is heavier than titanium. Titanium, gold and all the metals are heavier than organic materials. Some organic materials (stone, glass) tend to be heavier than the others (wood, horn). In some cases, this size and weight can be an advantage (for example, for some genital piercing types). In other situations, heavy jewelry might pose a problem. This is why you should choose materials carefully and pick the one that weights just how you need it.
  • In case you have a stretched genital piercing but your partner doesn’t appreciate heavy jewelry, you may remove your jewelry during intercourse. Make sure to insert your jewelry after intercourse because genital piercings tend to heal very quickly so chances are that you’ll have a lot of problems inserting jewelry after a while. This is a common problem with penis piercings.

How to Clean Your Jewelry Depending on the Material

clean jewelry You sure want to keep your body jewelry shiny and in a perfect shape. To achieve this, it’s important to take a good care of it and to clean it regularly. The type of appropriate care and cleaning instructions will depend on the material.

Different materials (surgical steel, titanium, gold, organic materials, etc.) require different care and cleaning instructions you should follow.

Surgical Steel

Surgical Steel is a high-quality steel that’s safe for body use. Unlike stainless steel, it doesn’t cause allergies and other problems. It should be noted that some people can wear stainless steel jewelry without a problem, so you shouldn’t completely forget about stainless steel if you don’t have allergies. However, surgical steel is a superior material and it’s much safer for body use.

This is why it’s strongly advisable to purchase body jewelry and sex toys made of surgical steel. Chances are that you have at least several jewelry pieces made of this material. Another advantage to this material is that it can easily be cleaned and maintained.

To keep your surgical steel jewelry in a perfect shape, all you need to do is to wash it with antibacterial soap and warm water. Make sure to leave your jewelry to fully dry before you insert it into your piercing or before you store it for later use.

Titanium

Titanium is a premium material and it’s ideal for body jewelry. It is completely body safe so it’s great for people for allergies. Another great advantage to titanium is that it’s lightweight. On average, steel jewelry is twice as heavy as titanium jewelry. This is very important for larger jewelry pieces or jewelry worn in stretched piercings (the so-called “gauges”). Plus, titanium comes in many different colors (there are even multi-colored pieces), so it’s very fun to wear. It’s true that it costs a bit more than steel jewelry but it’s worth it.

To keep your titanium jewelry in perfect shape, simply wash it with antibacterial soap and a warm water. Leave it to dry before you use it or store it. Make sure not to use alcohol or harsh cleaners on your titanium jewelry – it can damage it.

One word of warning: colored titanium jewelry may fade after a while, especially if used for oral piercings. This is not dangerous and it will not damage your jewelry or hurt you in any way.

Gold

Gold jewelry is beautiful, elegant and classy. However, keep in mind that 14k gold is the most appropriate for body jewelry. Also, certain gold types contain nickel, which can cause allergic reactions. This is why it’s advisable to only use body jewelry made of nickel-free gold.

To take care of your gold jewelry, wash it with antibacterial soap and warm water. Leave it to dry before use or storing. It’s important to only use mild soap. Never use alcohol or other harsh chemicals on your gold jewelry. Gold jewelry can appear worn out after a while so gently buff it to make it regain its original shine.

Sterling Silver

Sterling silver is beautiful, but it should never be worn in new piercings. It’s also important to wear silver jewelry only if you’re not allergic to it.

To clean body jewelry made of sterling silver, use antibacterial soap with warm water. Leave it to dry before use or storing. Never use alcohol or harsh chemicals on your silver jewelry. Keep in mind that silver can tarnish over time (turn brown). To give it back its former shine, lightly buff it and it will be as good as new.

Acrylic

Acrylic jewelry is great because it’s very lightweight. Another advantage is that you can wear it in situations where metal jewelry is not recommended. The downside is that it can be used only for healed piercings (this goes for stretched piercings, too – never use it for newly stretched piercings). Also, acrylic jewelry is not the best material for oral piercings.

To take care of your acrylic jewelry, gently wash it with antibacterial soap and warm water. Leave it to dry before you use it or store it. Never clean your acrylic jewelry with alcohol or other harsh chemicals.

When handling acrylic jewelry, you have to be careful. This is a gentle material that can easily break if it’s handled harshly. Also, it can warp on high temperatures so never leave it in direct sunlight.

Silicone

Silicone is body safe and lightweight, so it makes a good body jewelry material, especially for situations where wearing metal jewelry is not recommended.

To clean your silicone jewelry, make sure to use mild antibacterial soap and warm water. Let it dry before use or storing. Never use alcohol or other harsh chemicals because they can damage silicone material and ruin your jewelry.

Niobium

Niobium is a beautiful metal that’s completely body safe. While it’s a bit heavier than steel it’s a good alternative because it doesn’t cause allergies. Another advantage to niobium is that it can be colored, so there are many different colors available for your body jewelry.

To clean your niobium jewelry, simply wash it with antibacterial soap and warm water. Let it dry before you insert it into your piercing or before you store it.

PVD Coated Jewelry

PVD coated steel or titanium jewelry requires a bit of extra care. It’s important to keep the PVD coating intact, so it’s important never to use any harsh chemicals (such as alcohol) on the PVD coated jewelry. Stick to antibacterial soap and warm jewelry. It’s important to take care of your jewelry to prevent PVD coating from chipping.

Organic Jewelry

Cleaning organic jewelry will depend on the material (wood, stone, horn, glass, etc.) Keep in mind that this jewelry is made only for healed piercings. Organic jewelry is sensitive to extreme conditions (sun, warmth, water, etc.) so it’s best to store it in dark and cool place.

Wood: To keep your wood jewelry in a great condition, make sure to oil it with natural plant oil about once per week. Never get your wood jewelry wet for a long period of time. It’s best to remove it before swimming or showering. It’s also advisable to sand your wood jewelry with sandpaper and polish it afterwards (it’s best to polish your jewelry with a soft cloth).

Stone: Stone is best cleaned using a warm water and a bit of mild soap. Make sure to dry it before use or storing. Stone jewelry can break if you drop it, so make sure to handle it with care.

Buffalo horn and bone: It’s important to clean the jewelry before use. Clean it quickly with mild soap and water. Rinse and dry it straight away. To make your jewelry last for longer, lightly oil it with coconut oil about once per week – it will prevent cracking. Polish your jewelry from time to time with a soft cloth to keep it in a great condition. It’s also recommended to take horn and bone jewelry out before swimming or showering. You should not get it wet!

Glass: Glass jewelry can be cleaned with antibacterial soap and warm water. Make sure to let it dry before use or storing. Glass jewelry can break if you drop it so handle it with care.

Understanding Gem Placements

Gem Specifications

Gem Specifications

The Chain Gang Body Jewelry offers many different jewelry types and styles. Whatever your needs and preferences may be, you will be able to find numerous options for all jewelry types, be it navel piercing, tongue piercing, nipple piercing, stretched earlobe piercing, and more. You will also be able to choose between numerous elegant designs specially made for genital piercings.

Because the offer is so varied, it’s important to understand the product descriptions and the options you can get with your jewelry type. Pay attention to product images: they often reveal variations in barbell colors, gem colors, and more. The description will often state the available gauges and different styles you can choose from.

To get that perfect jewelry piece, you need to understand the different gem placement options, as well as gem color descriptions used. Generally speaking, a gem (or another decoration) can be top set, bottom set or a dangle. The top set gem is usually referred to as the “top”, depending on the type of setting (bezel top, princess top, etc.) The bottom set gem is usually referred to as the “main gem”. A navel jewelry piece can have dangles attached to the main barbell (dangle chains, gems or other decorations). If such a dangle decoration has a gem, it’s referred to as the “dangle gem”.

Belly jewelry pieces with multiple gems often have these gems in a formation. The most common formation is a flower. In this case, there are two types of gems: main gem (referring to the central gem) and petal gems (gems surrounding the central one). While the main and petal gems can be of the same color most jewelry pieces have them in different colors. Keep in mind that terms “main” and “petal” are used even if the formation is not a flower. Regardless of the type of the figure (formation), the central gem will be referred to as the main and the surrounding gem or gems as petals. In case of alternating stones without a circular formation of any sort, one color is considered a main gem and the other one petal gem.

This is important to know when choosing gem colors for your piece, because many navel pieces are available in many different gem colors for both main and petal gems.

Customization

However, that’s not all. You may be able to get a customized jewelry piece that will match your preferences perfectly. When it comes to gold belly pieces, the possibilities are endless, so chances are that you can get a customized piece a bit different than what’s described or shown on the photo.

Top and Bottom set decoration

For example:

  • In many cases, you can choose the type of gem you want in your piercings. Many gold jewelry pieces come with an option of a customized gem. There are many different genuine gems to choose from, so you should contact us about details and your preferred gems.
  • Yellow and white gold. Keep in mind that most of our 14k nickel-free gold jewelry pieces come both in yellow and white gold variations.
  • Gem placement. Each jewelry piece has a default positioning for the gem or another type of decoration (top set or bottom set). The great thing about these gold pieces is that they are usually available either way at no additional charge. That’s right: if you really like a jewelry piece but you don’t like the bottom set decoration, chances are that you will be able to get it with a top set decoration.

Is Ever OK to Wear Unsafe Body Jewelry Materials?

Internally Threaded Double Gem Set Curved Barbell

Internally Threaded Double Gem Set Curved Barbell

With so many different materials around, it’s sometimes difficult to choose the right jewelry. You’ve probably heard about body-safe materials and the importance of choosing them for your body jewelry. It’s crucial that you pick jewelry made of materials that are safe for you to wear. Meaning: materials which don’t cause allergic reactions, infections or other problems.

It’s well-known which materials are body-safe and frequently used for body jewelry: surgical steel, titanium, bio-plastic, and more. However, it’s also important to know when it’s crucial that you wear jewelry made of these materials and when it’s ok to wear other materials. There are certain types of jewelry or parts of jewelry that can safely be made of other materials without compromising your health. This way, even if you are sensitive, you will be able to wear hybrid and composite jewelry pieces made of several materials.

When to Use Safe Materials

Using body jewelry made of body-safe materials is crucial for numerous things, first and foremost, your health. Certain materials are not suitable to be worn as piercing jewelry because they can cause allergic reactions and infections. Of course, it’s important to note here that a material known to cause allergies can still be worn by you if you are not allergic. However, for initial piercings and most piercing jewelry types, using safe materials (surgical steel, titanium) is the best way to go.

What about hybrid jewelry made of several types of materials? Are they ok to wear? The answer will depend on several factors, one of them being your allergic reactions. As a rule of thumb, however, it’s ok to wear composite jewelry made of different materials as long as the “unsafe” material doesn’t go through your piercing and/or it doesn’t touch your skin.

In practice, it means that the part of the jewelry (barbell, captive bead ring, etc.) inserted into the piercing must be made of a body safe material. It’s best to use popular body jewelry materials, such as surgical steel (not stainless steel!) or titanium. Surgical steel is probably the most popular material used for body piercing and it offers numerous advantages. It’s reasonably prices, smooth, durable and easy to clean.

Titanium is another highly-recommended material. It’s hypoallergenic, very strong but light and it can be anodized to make a wide variety of colors (blue, purple, rainbow, etc.) Titanium and surgical steel are ideal for initial piercings and can be used for all types of piercing jewelry.

Some other materials are also good to use. Bio-plastic, for example, is a very flexible and it’s a good choice for initial piercings, particularly facial piercings. Gold is also a good (safe) material, but it’s not recommended for initial piercings and its downside is a high price.

When to Use “Unsafe” Materials

Generally speaking, unsafe materials should never be used for body jewelry. However, it’s still possible to wear jewelry partially made of these materials as long as the material doesn’t go through the piercing hole and as long as it doesn’t touch your body.

A good example of this are various gems and other ornaments worn on the balls of straight or circular barbells. These materials can add color and beauty to jewelry without compromising health because they don’t come in touch with the piercing itself. Same can be said for various chains, pendants and other ornaments made to highlight different body jewelry styles.

One of the most popular materials of this type is Sterling Silver. It’s very beautiful and soft, so it’s suitable for making many elaborate designs and unique patterns. However, Sterling Silver should not be inserted in any part of the body so any jewelry containing this material should have a basis (shaft) made of surgical steel or titanium.

To Wear or not to Wear Gold Body Jewelry

Many people still have misconceptions about gold body jewelry. Many people still even purchase cheap plated gold body jewelry which can be found at just about any mall and in stores like Spencers. Plated Jewelry can cause major infections due to the plating wearing off and the high nickel content in the Jewelry. Some people feel that the true solid gold body jewelry should be stamped 14k or 18k gold. However having this stamp does not mean a whole lot anymore since first of all, anyone can purchase the hammer stamps and put it on plated crap, and secondly having your body jewelry stamped just makes for a great place for bacteria to breed causing an infection. Usually this will only be done by the overseas companies and then it is very questionable what you are getting anymore based on the daily news. Body jewelry should be smooth without any places for bacteria to breed and hide. You should never wear Jewelry with nicks in it for that same reason. Continue reading

Ear Piercing or Body Piercing?

Double Helix Spiral

Double Helix Spiral

When you think about Ear Piercing what is the first thing that comes to mind. To me it use to be a diamond stud or two. Now you can have you whole ear practically pierced.

There are plenty of places on the ear to pierce that you may not even realize such as the Lobe, the Conch, the Tragus, the Diath, and the Helix. It is recommended to use a Larger Gauge of Jewelry in any cartilage piercings to make the healing more comfortable and less problematic.

The most common Jewelry for the ear piercings are Captive Rings, Circular Barbells, Ear Plugs, Flesh Tunnels & Earlets, Segment and Seamless Rings. I have had my cartilage pierced and to be honest I actually use the Nosebones in mine. They work great for that, for several reasons. They are light, and usually cheaper. Also unlike the standard backs they don’t stick me in the side of my head while I sleep. Also they don’t catch my hair, and have my hair wrap around the post, which can easily cause in infection. So be creative, the choices are only limited by your imagination.

I will not lie the cartilage piercings usually do hurt a little, but not a big deal. And just as with all piercings or tattoos, a few days of pain can equal a lifetime of pleasure and beauty. With all the Jewelry possibilities you have, whether it be in 14K Gold, Titanium, Surgical Steel, or Glass, how can you refuse.
