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.
