Product Materials and Allergy information
All of our products are made from 316L Surgical Grade Stainless Steel (Unless specifically stated otherwise). This type of steel is both strong and very shiny with a silver like appearance. It is commonly used in body piercings and other quality jewellery products as it offers low reaction rates and doesn't tarnish easily.
Gold products are plated with Real 18K Gold, using a high quality electroplating process that means it doesn't rub or flake away easily. 14K White Gold finish products are plated with Rhodium.
Were we offer solid silver or solid gold products, the pieces will be specifically described as such.
For graphical products, the clear dome is a shatterproof liquid glass-like material that is applied by hand.
We do not use any paper or stickers to place designs onto our products!
Did you know ‘Hypoallergenic’ is a cosmetic marketing term with very little real meaning.
Reactions typically only occur with very poor quality jewellery that uses cheap metal amalgams that are soft and tarnish easily!
The 316L stainless steel our products are made from contains very little nickel, but all stainless steel contains some nickel. It's needed for durability and scratch-resistance.
Because the nickel content in our products is very low, it is unlikely that you will have any reaction to our products. We have never had a report of a customer having had a reaction to our products.
If you are concerned about having a reaction to the jewellery, consider having the gold plated product, because the gold plating provides a barrier between the steel and your skin. Gold is totally benign and is not reactive at all.
