Niobium: A Great Body Jewelry Material

NiobiumNiobium is a beautiful material sometimes used for body jewelry. While its use is not so widespread like surgical steel, gold or titanium, it definitely offers some benefits you might want to consider. This is a gorgeous material you will love to wear.

Is it Body-Safe?

Absolutely! One great thing about niobium as a material is that it can be used without the fear of allergies. Niobiom as well as its alloys are inert. It means they don’t cause allergies. This is a great news for people looking for stable, hypo-allergenic jewelry materials.

Colors

Probably the best thing about niobium jewelry is that it comes in many different colors. Just like titanium, it can be anodized so you get different colored jewelry pieces. Also, unlike titanium, niobium can be heat treated black.

This is a great news for all those who prefer their jewelry to be colorful but without artificial colors or other potentially harmful additions to the jewelry itself. It makes niobium jewelry beautiful and body safe.

Additional Advantages

Niobium also offers some additional advantages. It is autoclavable so that’s another thing to keep in mind. Of course, niobium can also be anodized, which gives us all those pretty colors.

Another great thing about niobium is that it can be used for new piercings. Jewelry made of niobium is body-safe and can be used for initial piercings and during the healing time.

Disadvantages

Niobium is a very beautiful material and makes a good alternative to more popular body jewelry materials out there. It has only two disadvantages that need to be mentioned:

  • It’s soft. Niobium is a very soft metal, which may even prove to be advantage in some aspects. When it comes to shaping body jewelry, keep in mind that it can’t be lathed for threading. It means it’s only used for jewelry with no threading, such as Captive Bead Rings. This limits niobium’s use when it comes to body jewelry but it doesn’t make the existing jewelry made of this material bad. It simply means you won’t be able to find all jewelry types made of niobium. However, you will still be able to enjoy all those beautiful rings and other non-threaded jewelry pieces.
  • It’s relatively heavy. Niobium is heavier than titanium and surgical steel. It usually doesn’t pose any problems, unless you are prone to irritations. There are also some people who prefer heavier jewelry. All in all, this disadvantage is not big enough to make niobium into an undesirable material.
