Surgical Steel (316L) Jewelry
This jewelry is made of surgical steel, also known as 316L. The material is an implant grade steel alloy and the most common body piercing material. Allergic reactions are rare, but do occur. The element in stainless steel that causes allergic reactions in some people is nickel. The jewelry is polished to a mirror like surface, which results in a protective layer of chromium oxide keeping the nickel content trapped inside. If you are allergic to nickel we suggest that you choose a jewelry made of another material. There is no such thing as nickel free surgical steel; even our competitors should not have it. 316L is not recommended for new or unhealed piercing wounds.
