Cheaper white gold belly rings contain Nickel and that is well known for its negative effects on the skin. So many people are allergic to the metal and yet many manufacturers use it in white gold jewelry. This is because all gold belly rings need to be created using gold and a base metal. The base metal gives the belly ring its strength and without it the ring would be too soft and easy to break. Nickel is used with white gold because that is what gives the gold its color. Manufacturers use it because it is cheaper and easier to use than the alternative Palladium.
Choosing Palladium White Gold Belly Rings
Palladium is typically used in higher quality white gold belly rings. It is not advertised in belly ring descriptions, but it will be higher priced than Nickel belly rings. You do not have to pay a fortune for Palladium based white gold rings but you do have to be prepared to pay for good quality. If you see a belly ring which looks incredibly cheap then be wary about what it contains; especially if you have only just had the navel pierced.
Fresh piercings need a chance to heal and all gold rings can cause an infection because of their base metals. So try to avoid them until the piercing has healed properly.
