The material of the piercing jewelry has a huge importance in terms of the healing of the piercing and in the future, when the jewelry is on you all the time!

In the worst case, bad and cheap materials such as surgical steel will give you years of complicated threads for your piercing. The following things are counted as mild material complications, even though your piercing should have already healed. Leaking from the piercing (tissue fluid/blood), heat, redness, swelling and intermittent pain. Worse complications are scar tissue spasms (usually disappear by changing the material to a better one), intermittent fever, onset/worsening of a nickel allergy, permanent discoloration of the skin (cheap metals remove color from jewelry) and constant soreness of the piercing.

If you suffer from any of these symptoms, please contact us. Many people have received help from us for complications arising from piercings just by changing the jewelry.

We recommend using only the following materials for piercings:

1. Implant grade titanium (Ti-6AL-4V-ELI ASTM F136) Please note that the code is the same and the piercing jewelry is a branded product. If the seller does not know the brand of the product, it is possibly a cheap production and the quality cannot be guaranteed. This material is suitable for first jewelry. Titanium as a piercing jewelry material is excellent. It is a durable, light, rigid and dense metal that resists age and corrosion well.

2. Nickel-free gold. Not all gold is nickel-free. In the market, you should be careful and ask what the sold gold contains before making a purchase. There are clear Laboratory test templates for the piercing jewelry we sell, which show the concentrations of different metals in 14- and 18-karat gold. This material is also suitable as first jewelry.

3. 24 carat gold PVD coated implant grade titanium. The purest 24K gold is used in a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating, which is not the same as ordinary gold plating. The process is physical, not chemical. This results in a high-quality coating that is resistant to wear, scratches and heat, for example. The coating is also harmless to the human body and environmentally friendly. It is important to note here that the product below is implant grade titanium.

4. Niobium is a pure element, i.e. no other metals are mixed with it. Niobium is used by many who cannot tolerate any other materials. Niobium jewelry can be ordered through us.

But I've never had any symptoms of surgical steel or steel piercing jewelry? 

Even if you have been using unfavorable materials for years, you have still been able to avoid complications... for now. Usually, these complications only show up after years of use, when it shows up as sensitization, i.e. you start to develop symptoms little by little and one day you can't wear "trinket" jewelry anymore. 

These softer steel products dissolve metal residue all the time in your body. In the worst case, you have also developed a nickel allergy along the way. 

Surgical steel is known to be safe material?

Just like today, everywhere we are offered incorrect information based solely on the pursuit of sales. At LuxJewelle, we are primarily interested in the health and safety of our customers, so we want to trade honestly and be open about the products we sell. 

Surgical steel just as a word reveals its weakness. It is steel, i.e. a really strong mixture of different metal combinations, including nickel. In the worst case, these materials will rust on the user. 

How does your product differ from other shops offering the same material? 

As we mentioned earlier, it is important that you know who the manufacturer/manufacturer of the jewelry is. Thus, you can freely access the manufacturer's website to examine reliable laboratory data and certificates for the jewelry you wear. 

If you don't know the brand or the seller doesn't know the brand and doesn't have a link to guide you to these tests, they probably haven't been performed. 

The jewelry market is very much the wild west and consumers are sold a lot of bad things with beautiful words.
