Most often, piercing jewelry is made of various metals: it can be either precious gold or silver, or stainless steel, titanium or titanium alloys. It is important to remember that jewelry made of any metal should be smooth, well polished, and in those places where they directly contact the skin, there should be no irregularities or decorative elements.

In no case should you use jewelry made of nickel and alloys containing cobalt for piercing. It is not recommended to use silver jewelry for primary piercing: it is better to use them when the puncture site has already completely healed. Before that, it is best to wear jewelry made of steel or gold.

Also, piercing jewelry can be made of glass, Teflon, hypoallergenic plastic or polymer clay, but jewelry made of precious metals will still be more durable. Thus, high quality piercing jewelry is safe, long lasting and more attractive.
