Youíll probably find that surgical steel jewellery
makes up the majority of the piercings you will find in many shops and online, however you may find that these numbers are dropping because of EU laws which state that new piercings must only be pierced with a material that has extremely low contents of nickel. While surgical steel does have low contents of nickel, it is not low enough to meet these EU requirements, and therefore cannot be used in piercings which still require healing
Surgical Steel Jewellery Is Still Hugely Popular
Despite this set back, surgical steel jewellery is still amongst the most popular type of material for piercings for tonnes of people who love body modification, thanks to the brilliant shine it creates when polished nicely, meaning these piercings are often amongst the most eye-catching and gorgeous looking.
This type of jewellery material is often preferred over polished titanium
solely because of the shiny look rather than comfort, because surgical steel jewellery is known to react to changes in temperatures and cause a little discomfort to people wearing this metal in sensitive places.
Advantages Of Surgical Steel Jewellery
Itís true that this material is very affordable, as you can see by our great prices, and it can also be cleaned extremely easily. In addition to this, surgical steel jewellery is particularly long-lasting and very hard wearing, making it ideal for navel bars in particular, as we all know how much clothing can rub on a belly bar, causing discolouration and discomfort.
