Material Guide

Material Guide

All of our products are nickel and lead free and safe for body piercing. We also make sure to always choose the most eco-friendly and sustainable solutions for the design of our jewelry. Here is an exhaustive list of all the materials we currently use and some advises on how to take care for them.

Titanium

For piercings, we use ASTM F136 grade titanium, which is a particular alloy of titanium that is biocompatible and specifically refined for surgical implant applications. This is the highest standard for piercing and frequently used by professional piercers.

All our titanium threadless posts, ends and clickers (silver or gold) are suitable for use in fresh piercings. They can also be autoclaved and anodized in different colors by your local piercer. 

Our gold titanium piercings are PVD coated with 18k Gold. Physical vapor deposition (PVD) is a technic to deposit a solid thin film of any material on top of another. Its a very environmental friendly, non polluant technic that ensure hard and long-lasting colors such as gold or rose gold.

Surgical Steel

For some piercings, and for rings, necklaces and bracelets we use ASTM F138 grade surgical steel, which is proven biocompatible, and can be used for surgical implants and for fresh piercings.

Our gold surgical steel piercings are PVD coated with 18k Gold.

Stainless Steel

This material is used only for rings, necklaces and bracelets. Not suitable for piercings but 100% waterproof and rustproof, which makes it perfect for body accessories.

Brass

For stretched ears and earrings, we use pure brass, which is an alloy of copper and zinc with 25% of 925 silver added for silver brass. Brass is the most affordable alternative to gold and silver. Our brass jewelry are non coated in order to keep it as natural and safe as possible. 

All raw brass will tarnish & oxidize as it ages, creating a patina that is unique to each piece. This is considered normal and not a defect. If this is not a look you want, you may purchased anti-tarnish products or simply wipe it with a jewelry-polishing cloth.

Stone

Our plugs, tunnels and some gems set in our piercings are made from natural stones such as labradorite, quartz, amethyst, onyx, zirconium with high quality polish finishing. Natural stones have different and unique appearance, their color, intensity, transparency, patterns vary from one piece to another. Don’t hesitate to comment when ordering on your preferred look or color and we will make sure to choose the right stone for you.

Glass

A very safe man-made material that can take many colors. Our plugs and tunnels made from glass have high quality polish finishing to ensure smooth surface suitable for wear with stretched ears.

Oxidation & Care

All kind of metals, with the exception of titanium, are susceptible to oxidation over time, giving them a tarnished look. This is a natural reaction, resulting from contact with oxygen and moisture in the air. Here are few advises to ensure that your jewelry will make you happy for a very long time :

Store your jewelry away from water, humidity and light. You can keep them in the packaging that your received with your order, as it was designed to protect them perfectly.

Avoid any contact with perfumes, creams and other cosmetic or cleaning products. They are highly sensitive to chemicals and liquids, and it can cause them to oxidize or change in color.

Dry them thoroughly if it gets in contact with water. Brass jewelry that are non-coated especially can retain water spots, leaving undesirable white stains.

You may purchased anti-tarnish products to clean your brass jewelry if it tarnishes or changes color (oxidize). This is very efficient and will give it back its lush warm golden color.

Toothpaste and a toothbrush would do the job. You can also clean your tarnished brass jewelry by simply brushing it gently under water with an old toothbrush and some toothpaste on it!

To avoid scratches, wrap your jewelry in a soft cloth after cleaning and keep them in a separated jewelry box when you carry them.
