It’s no wonder steel is the basic material for body jewelry!
Steel navel rings are very common because it’s a good quality material and is inexpensive to produce. Although stainless steel contains other metals, they don’t make it less body-friendly. They are added to make it more durable and, for instance, chromium is added to it to prevent rusting. It is the basic requirement for the first time belly button piercings. So if you buy steel body jewelry, you can ask your piercer to insert it into your fresh piercing. After sterilizing, of course. But remember – steel body jewelry can’t be autoclaved (it is the process of sterilizing) if they have any other material elements – acrylic balls, gems. In fact, saying “steel navel rings” doesn’t say much. Why? We’re talking about shafts only. Endings can be made from whatever material and shape you can think of. To say it another way – don’t be looking for steel navel rings, just look at anything you like and most likely that belly ring’s shaft is made of steel. Unless it is, of course, titanium, gold or diamond belly button ring. Belly button rings made of steel don’t react with body tissues. That is why you won’t find belly rings completely made from silver – in all the online stores recommended by me silver body jewelry comes with stainless steel shafts. Remember: silver belly rings’ shafts are made from steel! Belly button rings made of surgical implant stainless steel is another choice for the first time belly button piercings. This metal used in medical industry for implants and is a high quality alloy. You’ll spend a bit more buying a belly ring made of implant steel, but it’s cleaner and less porous than the common stainless steel and if you want to have the confidence of having a belly button ring that could be as well used inside your body…go for it!
