When it comes to deciding the design, look and trend of jewellery for your piercing type, it is obviously very important to be in style and choose jewellery that suits you and your personality. But at the same time, it is also very important to choose the correct metal for your piercing type.
So many times we are lured away by the design and attractiveness of the jewellery that we forget to check the substance it is made with and often end up regretting the buy because it gave us bad allergies or was just too uncomfortable to put on.
Using metal for the first time needs care and you need to be on the lookout for any redness or other kinds of skin irritation. In case of a new or an unhealed piercing, you should check out jewellery made of stainless steel or niobium.
Here are a few tips for you to consider while you buy jewellery for your piercings –
These are the most common kind of body piercings and you can get such a vast variety of jewellery for this kind. Just name the occasion and there are thousands of options you can choose from – studs, hoops, danglers, etc. Pearls and gold earrings compliment the office look very elegantly while hoops and danglers are THE earrings for a fun party to go with a great dress.
- Nose rings
Nose piercings don’t really suit everyone (they are definitely not for me), but those who love nose rings and carry them so well need to know that when you are getting your nose pierced, you should first go with surgical stainless steel jewellery for it. After the piercing is healed, you can switch to the jewellery of your choice and design to match with the occasion at hand.
- Belly button rings
Ah, the belly button ring. So sexy and attractive if you know how to get the right ones. If you don’t want to deal with any allergies or irritation, you should go for good quality gold or surgical stainless steel. Small belly button rings are cute for normal wear and for occasions, fancy little danglers are everything you’re looking for to attract and impress. Be careful with your piercing while going to bed – remove the heavy jewellery because they may cause discomfort or skin irritations.
- Tongue piercings
This has got to be the most careful buy if you’re planning on getting your tongue pierced or already have. The kind of jewellery, which is the metal, needs to be your top priority. Stainless steel and gold are the best and safest options for tongue rings. This will keep you safe from allergies or infections and give you that swagger look that you want.
