Gold is the name of an alloy, often used to make jewellery of many different types. Gold is made up of not only pure karat gold but base metals also.
The fluids secreted by a healing piercing cause corrosion of the base metals in the gold. Once a piercing is fully healed, Gold can be worn, although best for limited periods of time as it can tarnish when in contact with bodily fluids. Try to keep the jewellery clean and polished regularly to prolong the quality.
All our gold body jewellery is of the highest quality and complies with all assay and nickel testing requirements. We do not stand for any inferior quality gold or workmanship. Please be aware of any imported mass produced body jewellery products which may not comply with EC nickel directives and of any small companies that use scrap gold for production of body jewellery. We only use new gold and new wire for every piece that is produced. Where possible, all threads are produced on a CNC lathe to provide durable and high quality threads.
All our gold body jewellery products are made in the UK in London based workshops by highly skilled craftspeople who take great pride in all their work, carefully hand-finishing every single piece of body jewellery.
