Learn More About Metal Allergies

Where to start?

Stainless Steel, Titanium and Niobium are some of the safest metals you can wear. If you have any issues with these metals, medical plastic or bioplast jewellery are a great option or while your new piercings settles down.


What does hypoallergenic mean?

The word hypoallergenic means: unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. 95% of our customers are able to wear our jewellery, but we cannot guarantee that no one will react to an item of jewellery as it is possible to be allergic to anything.


Medical Plastic

Medical plastic is made from a hardened version of the material used in surgical sutures.



Titanium is strong, lightweight and highly biocompatible (non-toxic and not rejected by the body).

Titanium is an excellent choice for anyone with sensitive skin, especially for those allergic to nickel, silver or gold. Allergic reactions to titanium are extremely rare even in people sensitive to other metals.

Titanium can be anodised to create a range of colours. Anodising creates a thin oxide layer which is just as biocompatible as polished titanium. The colour produced depends on the thickness of the oxide layer. There are no other materials added and there is no plating or painting.

Titanium is suitable for both initial and healed body piercings.

Titanium grades
It is important to remember that the main difference between these grades of titanium is mostly in the manufacturing. All are suitable for initial and healed piercings.

Grades 1 - 4 (CP/commercially pure titanium) are slightly softer so are best for making earring hooks and other shapes. Mostly used for earrings.
Grade 5 (Ti-6AL-4V) is stronger and less malleable and is used for most body jewellery.
Ti-6AL-4V ELI ASTM F-136 is a refined version of grade 23 used in Industrial Strength (brand name, not a description of the titanium grade) body jewellery. Also known as implant grade titanium.


Surgical Steel and Stainless Steel

316L Stainless Steel, also known as surgical steel is a great metal for people with sensitive skin. It is commonly known to be hypoallergenic, tarnish free and very strong.

Stainless steel can contain small amounts of nickel, however it is the rate of release of nickel (rather than nickel content) that really matters. The specific composition of 316L steel (also known as implant grade steel and surgical stainless steel) allows for very little exposure to the nickel molecules which reduces the risk of allergic reactions.

Nickel Release Rates
316L surgical steel (used in earrings and body jewellery) - around 0.02μg/cm2/week
304 stainless steel (used in earring hooks) - around 0.08μg/cm2/week
430 stainless steel (used in earring hooks) - less than 0.5μg/cm2/week

Surgical steel is suitable for use in healed piercings but is not recommended for initial piercings.


Black PVD Titanium, Niobium and Surgical Steel

Black PVD titanium, niobium and surgical steel have a coating of Titanium Aluminum Nitride (TiAlN) applied using physical vapour deposition (PVD) to create a hypoallergenic, long-lasting black colour.


Gold and Rose Gold PVD Titanium, Niobium and Surgical Steel

Gold and rose gold PVD titanium, niobium and surgical steel have a coating of Zirconium Nitride (ZrN) applied using physical vapour deposition (PVD) to create a hypoallergenic, long-lasting gold or rose gold colour without using any actual gold.



Niobium looks very similar to titanium but is an element rather than an alloy (a mix of metals), it is ideal if you are allergic to nickel, silver or gold.

Like titanium it can be anodised, changing the surface colour of the metal to create a range of colours. Niobium used in a jewellery has to be as pure as possible and is sometimes know as 999 Niobium or 99.9% niobium.



24 carat gold is the purest form available. Gold that is less than 24 carat is an alloy and it is the other metals in the alloy that usually cause allergic reactions to gold jewellery. 24ct gold is too soft to use on it's own so it is alloyed (mixed) with other metals to make it stronger or used as a plating.

The higher the number of carats the purer the gold is. Dividing the number of carats by 24 gives you the purity percentage of gold.

24ct/24 = 100% (or 99.9%) pure gold

18ct/24 = 75% pure gold with approximately 15% silver and 10% copper

We only have 18ct and 24ct gold jewellery but for comparison
9ct/24 = 37.5% pure gold with approximately 42.5% silver and 20% copper

Carat or karat? Carat (ct) is the UK spelling of karat (kt). So in this case it's the same thing.

PVD gold coated jewellery does not contain any gold.

Yes, they are. However Studex have two different butterfly back styles which can cause some confusion.

If we receive jewellery from our suppliers as single items then we sell it that way since not everyone has an even number of piercings.

How do I put the ball in a BCR?
BCRs can take a bit of practice. Line one dimple on the ball up with one side of the ring, holding it firmly push so that the other dimple clips into place.



I'm allergic to nickel, what can I wear?
95% of our customers are absolutely fine with 316L Stainless Steel. If you have a severe allergy then Titanium might be a more suitable option

Could I be allergic to titanium?
It is extremely rare but you can be allergic to anything. If you've had a reaction after wearing titanium jewellery then make sure it really is the jewellery and not something it has come into contact with such as soap, shampoo, etc.

What does hypoallergenic mean?
The word hypoallergenic means having a decreased tendency to provoke an allergic reaction. It should not be considered a guarantee that no one will react to an item of jewellery since it is possible to be allergic to anything.

What should I do if I have had a reaction?

We would recommend that you allow the piercing time to heal and slowly build up the time worn to allow your ear to get used to it. If this doesn't work then you can return any items (even if worn) within 60 days for a refund or exchange.
