Nickel Free Body Jewelry – Why Safety is Better than Saving

Heard of nickel free body jewelry? Or may be just about nickel? Well, nickel is that metal that is merged with base metals such as gold and silver to create body jewelry that is harder, stronger and shinier. Nickel is also the one to blame for most all allergic reactions that people mistakenly think that any and every body jewelry can cause. It’s nickel that does the damage and which is present in regular jewelry that you buy off Mall Kiosks (Very Bad Idea) and other bargain stores.

That does not mean you stop buying but instead start buying smartly. So the solution is not to shun body jewelry but body jewelry with nickel! Nickel free body jewelry is your best bet and it’s not only different from regular jewelry in terms of quality, look but is a lot safer overall, and you will usually find that the manufacturers that use nickel free jewelry will also provide you a much better quality and finish because they care about quality more then price.

What makes Nickel free body jewelry safer?

Absence of nickel of course! Body jewelry made from Titanium and Nickel Free Gold is usually the safest materials to opt for because these contain zero nickel!Β  These are a tad more expensive than body jewelry with nickel but what’s a little money when it comes to the safety of your body, right? And we all know how majority of us do not reject gold at all πŸ™‚

Especially when the first cheap piece from the mall causes and infection so then you purchase another one from a different kiosk only to make the problem worse, so you go to another store and get what they say is the best, on and on. Sound familiar? How much did all of those pieces of junk that you can not even wear cost you?

The difference between nickel free body jewelry and normal jewelry lies also in being medically and legally endorsed. The former has a legal sanction, the latter carries a directive against (especially in Europe).

So opt for safety rather than getting an allergy. And with all the potential allergies (and their treatments) that nickel can cause, regular body jewelry may not turn out to be that pocket saving anyways. only shop with company’s that have your safety in mind such as wwwTheChainGang.com , where all of their jewelry comes from the USA or England.

From Labret Studs to Spikes – Types of Labret Piercing Jewelry

It’s not just studs anymore that is making peoples’ labret shine these days. A great variety of labret jewelry designs are available cut out just for the area between the lip and the chin. Labret jewelry can be made from Titanium, gold, surgical steel and other materials/ metals that are skin friendly and nickel free.

The most popular kinds of labret piercing jewelry are given below. See what suits your style:

Labret Stud – Initially it was the most popular labret piercing jewelry but now studs are gradually slipping into commonality from popularity. In this a long straight shaft has a flat disc on one end (which remains inside the mouth) and a bead which is visible outside. However, these are perfect for first timers to get initiated.

Labret Buttons – These are bigger than beads of the labret studs. A good option when you are bored of studs and want the piercing to be a bit more visible.

Labret Spikes – In these the only difference is of the bead, rest is just like a labret stud. The round stud is replaced by a spiked stud for an even more dashing look! Choose this for a total killer look.

Labret Ball – This type of Labret piercing jewelry has balls on the visible end of the shaft.

Labret Prongs – These look extremely stylish. Here there is a prong with a gem within, on the end that is visible. Looks great in gold!

Captive Bead Rings – These look unique on labrets. It’s one of the more popular labret piercing jewelry after studs.

Labret Retainers – These are basically used to hide labret piercing. Available in the shape of studs, these are transparent to make piercing discreet.

Apart from the above there are labret piercing jewelry available with skulls, flowers and other interesting and likable designs of labret piercing jewelry available. So next time you go for labretΒ  jewelry shopping, try and go beyond the stud – it may be a classic but these days it’s nothing more than a safe choice. πŸ™‚
