Our Surgical Steel Body Piercing Jewellery has something for every piercing and any style – literally! We have hundreds of steel pieces to meet your every need, from piercing essentials like Surgical Steel Bananabells and Steel Barbells to eye-catching Nipple Jewellery and Threaded Accessories to customise your look.
Stainless Steels are categorised into four general classes, based on composition: 200 series stel contains chromium, nickel and maganese, 300 series contains chromium and nickel, 400 series contains chromium and 500 series contains low chromium. The most corrosion resistant are 300 series steels, hence their popularity for medical implants and body jewellery. However, not all 300 series steels are suitable for invasive body piercing applications.
We use three steels for body jewellery. Composition D Implantation Steel, 316L surgical steel and 316LVM Surgical Steel. Although these high grades all contain nickel, they do not release nickel salts into the body and do not induce contact nickel dermatitis. Our suppliers have independent laboratory testing certificates on file indicating that nickel evolution is belo 0.01 ug/cm2/week. All steels supplied by the Body Jewellery Shop meet the annex criteria in the EU Nickel directive and can be used indefinitely worldwide for secondary piercing applications.
Surgical Stainless Steels (316L) are used for bone fixation screws, body pins, bone plates, total joint prosthetics, bone nails, wires mandibular wire mesh, staples, intercranial drainage valves, amongst many other applications. Body jewellery listed here is manufactured from equivalent or higher standard material. We do not play or gamble with your health.
Many of our Steel body jewellery items have been electropolished, which is a sophisticated surface finishing echnique, where electrochemical activity slowly erodes a thin layer from the surface of the jewellery resulting in MICROSMOOTHING. The resultant surface is ultra smooth and crevice free. It has a higher surface integrity and efficiency than jewellery polished by other means.
