Why buy Titanium Jewelry?

Titanium Jewelry is safe for piercings and is often considered the best type of metal for piercings. Titanium is biocompatible and hypoallergenic, so many piercers will advise you to wear titanium jewelry for the piercing when you are healing it. Once the piercing has healed, surgical steel is a good choice for body jewelry. Make sure you only use titanium to keep your piercing safe.

Always buy your body jewelry from reputable sellers so you know you are getting a genuine product and not another type of potentially harmful metal.

Where does titanium jewelry come from?

Titanium is the fourth most abundant structural metal on Earth. It can only be found in a variety of ores; a natural rock or sediment from which a metal or mineral can be extracted. These ores must undergo a multi-step process to extract the titanium metal.

Advantages of Titanium Jewelry

Most body jewelry is made of 316L surgical steel. However, when a driller makes the shot, he almost always uses titanium, but what exactly is titanium?

Titanium is similar to gold, it comes from the earth and is extracted from minerals such as ilmenite and ruthiel. The main characteristic of titanium is that it is very firm and three times stronger than steel. This makes it very difficult to work with. Titanium only melts at a temperature of 1660 degrees Celsius. To melt titanium and process it, specialized equipment is needed, which makes it very expensive. Although titanium is much stronger than steel, it is still half as light.

Pure titanium has a purity of 99% to 99.7%. Unlike other metals, titanium has the characteristic of not adhering to the body and is widely used as pins and plates in the medical world. This feature makes titanium also ideal for wearing a piercing. The fact that it is strong ensures that the piercing is durable, titanium corrodes but is not visible.

Titanium jewelry can come into contact with water and perspiration without discoloration, which is ideal because it is a lightweight metal that is pleasant to wear.
