Ear piercings are undoubtedly the most popular body modifications in the UK, and, indeed, the world. With demand for cartilage earrings at its highest level for years, those of us with piercings are searching for even better quality when it comes to our body jewellery, with titanium, plasma gold and surgical steel all at the top of the list for safety and comfort in our cartilage piercings.
What makes a good piece of body jewellery, especially when weíre talking about cartilage earrings? The simplest way to ensure youíre getting the safest and most comfortable piece of jewellery for your cartilage piercing is to make sure youíre avoiding sterling silver, plated gold or other forms of costume jewellery. Sterling silver has the potential to oxidise, especially when it comes into contact with your body tissue or fluids, resulting in a tarnish on the metal which you certainly donít want on an open wound.
How To Get The Best Cartilage Earrings For Your Money
As well as avoiding sterling, youíll want to stay away from costume jewellery which often contains a large amount of nickel. Plated gold (not to be confused with our Plasma Gold), should be avoided because if it scratches it provides a perfect place for bacteria to breed. Instead, look for titanium, plasma gold or surgical steel, which provide the greatest protection against possible infection. Our body jewellery and cartilage earrings are all virtually impossible to be allergic to as well, meaning you can look great without the worry of rejection.
Obviously, itís likely you got a piercing for the fashion impact it can have on your alternative style.
