Resilience of Body Jewelry Through Quality and Safety

When it comes to quality, body jewelry businesses must adhere to higher standards. Due to its unique cultural and commercial value, body modifications like piercings remained resilient even against criticisms and negative reactions. To ensure its continued profitability, businesses dealing with body piercings and jewelry must equate quality excellence with reliable safety.

High quality body jewelry can be measured in three different aspects which include materials used, form factor (shape) and fashion style (aesthetic).

Materials in this type of jewelry are very important. The value of materials usually does not depend on monetary worth but on specific qualities that make it suitable for use in body piercing jewelry. Body modification, no matter how small, can always accompany risks and due to this, jewelry to be use must be made from metals with high biocompatibility.

Biocompatible metals are valuable in body piercing because they do not react or get rejected by the body. Metals that are often use in body jewelry due to their high biocompatibility are nickel-free gold and platinum, titanium, 316L stainless steel, cobalt chrome, among others. Low quality body jewelry usually made with materials containing high amounts of nickel, lead or carbon can result to negative reactions to the body like allergies or metal poisoning.

After the safety of materials, form will come next to determine quality. Piercings are usually start as an open wound so it is very important that jewelry used are uniform and smooth to avoid damaging surrounding tissue. There has been a long debate whether internally threaded or externally threaded body jewelry is better.

Threads are the spiral ridges of the jewelry that let two pieces attach to each other. In externally threaded jewelry, the threads are exposed in the end of the barbell and can pass through the wound before it can be attached to the hole on the ball, gem or spike. Internally threaded jewelry on the other hand, the barbell a hole threaded inside that will receive the threaded rod of the ball, gem or spike.

The APP or Association of Professional Piercers has set the standard that should be followed by professional body piercers. They suggest that the use of internally threaded jewelry must be the standard when it comes to fresh piercing as the part that passes through the wound is smooth. Externally threaded body jewelry used for fresh piercing can get bacteria on its threading and can infect the fresh piercing. With this regard, it is advised that externally threaded body jewelry must only be used in fully healed piercing.

Though the image of piercings is tough and edgy, style and design must not compromise safety. The human skin can stretch and withstand a lot of tension but when body piercing get caught on clothes due to reckless design, then this is a sign of a low quality product. Body jewelry must be designed in a way that will ensure the safety of its wearer and prevent it from getting snatched or pulled off the skin. Sharp edges and points must be must be calibrated so that accidents will not arise. Metal parts and gem accents must also retain its color and polish, must not easily get loose or crack.

It seems that even how many recessions come and go, the industry's resilience will continue as long as the standard for excellence remain, steadfastly providing products that satisfy the inate need for individuality and safeguarding the right for self-expression.
