When it comes to body jewelry, the first thing that goes to most people's minds are cheap barbells and labrets. But with the ongoing rising popularity of body piercing, high end manufacturers have produced jewelry that are above average in prices. Which raise the question whether piercing jewelry should be treated like fashion jewelry in which there should be categories like fancy and precious?

For more people who love piercings, the value of the metal in their body piercing accessories is not really relevant. Piercing enthusiast give more importance on the characteristics of the metal or the material used in their body piercing jewelry. But there is a rising market in the piercing jewelry industry in which precious metals like gold and platinum are being used to craft high end accessories.

Gold and platinum are precious not just because they are rare elements. People who love piercing can also use gold and platinum jewelry because these metals are inert or have very minimal reaction to the environment they are in. High quality precious metal piercing jewelry are hypoallergenic and do not tarnish. But is it really practical to buy expensive body piercing jewelry when there are alternative metals like stainless steel and titanium which are relatively cheaper and still have hypoallergenic characteristics?

Stainless steel and titanium are the two most popular metals used in piercing jewelry because they are affordable and easy to manipulate to create high quality body accessories. Another reason why these metals took the attention of many is they are also hypoallergenic and has even been used in implants because they do not get rejected by the human body. Manufacturers can also make stainless steel and titanium look like gold through PVD or anodization to change their color without getting too expensive.

It seems the rise of popularity of high end body piercing jewelry can be seen as a sign that society is getting more open minded with the concept of piercing and permanent body manipulation. Giving more value to piercing jewelry by incorporating precious metals also opens a new niche in the industry giving another opportunity for retailers and piercing professionals. People who buy expensive and high end body jewelry are either giving them as gifts to love ones and friends while some just love to ensure that the quality of their accessories is topnotch.

In the end, the choice whether buying high end body piercing jewelry or more affordable one made from alternative metals rest to the consumer's preference and style. Different people have different venues on how they assess value whether its a car or a fashion jewelry and as the industry evolve, body jewelry just got into that list.
