Body Jewelry for your new body piercing!

Whenever we think of getting our body parts pierce, the only thing that comes in our mind is the jewelry! Yes, I know you agree right? We need to be very specific in choosing the jewelry for ourselves that too for the first time if we are getting our specific body part pierce. There are certain things which need to be considered before buying the jewelry for you first body piercing. Also remember that your body is unique so if jewelry becomes an irritant, remove it at once and try again when the piercing is fully healed. If any irritation occurs, discard the jewelry and avoid wearing body jewelry made from that metal or other material. Jewelries like sterling silver, gold and diamond are one of the most commons in which you will never harm your body piercing. Basically it depends on the metal you choose for your body, and if you wear a jewelry that leads to infection then I suggest you not to wear any other metal on it in order to heal the area. It will not heal the area rather it will spread the infection and make the area more infected. So, I have a list of metal jewelries which you might consider while getting your new body piercing, check it out:

Rose gold

Well, first of all the color rose gold is something that is trending nowadays. So, you can completely rely on this jewelry for your first body piercing. Not only Rose gold you can also opt for gold color jewelry. Adding, it is Gold and gold-filled jewelry has a much thicker coat of gold than gold plated jewelry. But in case you have an unhealed body piercing then do not wear this one as a deep scratch could expose the metal underneath and provide a home for bacteria.


Titanium weighs less and is much stronger than stainless steel, which means you will have body piercing jewelry that is both durable, comfortable and almost completely without scratches.   Titanium is an expensive metal, but well worth the price.  Titanium body jewelry looks great; it lasts, and will look as good as new after many years of wear! Titanium is expensive but is super durable and contains just tiny amounts of nickel. Titanium is available in a rainbow of colors.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is the most common metal for body jewelry, and is just behind G23 titanium in terms of biocompatibility. Keep in mind that even the best grades of stainless steel do contain nickel and may cause problems for those with nickel sensitivities. Many countries have banned the use of stainless steel for initial piercings, and it is best to stay away from stainless steel altogether until after your piercing has healed.

Also note the metals which you should completely avoid.

Do not wear sterling silver jewelry in unhealed body piercings. Sterling silver is made from 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent of another metal, usually copper. Since sterling silver is still soft enough to scratch, nicks in the jewelry are a breeding ground for bacteria.

Avoid all types of costume jewelry for unhealed piercings because this jewelry usually contains large amounts of nickel. In recent years, some costume jewelry has even been found to contain lead, which would be dangerous for you to wear in any type of jewelry.

Avoid gold or other metal alloys that contain nickel and ask your piercing pro his or her opinion about wearing gold jewelry in unhealed piercings.
