Labret - Size Guide

The Labret bar length is easy to measure with a ruler or something similar. Measure the length before the threading starts.

Measuring the thickness is more complicated. We recommend using a caliper tool with a digital display to measure it accurately.

14 Kt. Gold - Material Guide

Gold is the preferred choice of material for lots of people. Piercing Jewellery made of 14 Kt. Gold has many benefits. Moreover, Gold has long been associated with luxury and class.

Golden Piercings are often available in various colours. Besides the obvious options of Yellow and White Gold, Rose Gold is also becoming more popular. In this Material Guide we take a closer look into this precious metal.

Introduction to 14 Kt. Gold

Humanity's demand for Gold has been around for as long as we can remember. The price of Gold is at record highs for years now, resulting in older Gold Jewellery that most likely has been a good investment.

Gold Jewellery is considered expensive. Not every budget allows for a Piercing Jewel made of Gold. The amount of Gold needed to produce a Piercing can vary quite a lot. Especially small Piercing Types may result in such Jewellery becoming in reach for a wider audience.

Gold in its purest form is not hard enough to be used for Jewellery. Other metals are added to increase hardness. The purity of Gold is referred to in Karats. 24 Karat is pure Gold. In this Guide, we look at 14 Karat Gold, which is mostly used for Body Jewellery.

14 Kt. Gold Explained

Most of the Gold Body Jewellery available is made of 14 Karat Gold. Such Jewellery consists of 58.5% pure gold.
Other metals, chosen for color and hardness, like Copper, Zinc, and Silver, are added to make up for the difference.
14 Karat White Gold is created by adding Palladium and Nickel. People sensitive to nickel can safely order 14 Karat Yellow and Rose Gold jewellery.

The fact that 14 Karat Yellow and Rose gold is free of any Nickel also makes such Piercing Jewellery a great alternative to Titanium for initial Piercings. For people sensitive to metals, including Nickel, 14 Karat Yellow or Rose Gold and Titanium Body Jewellery is the perfect alternative. Compared to Titanium, often considered quite Gray, Golden Piercings are the more appealing option for most. As Titanium is also known to be a bit expensive, upgrading the initial Jewel to 14 Karat Gold is not such a bad idea. Especially for small Body Jewellery, which requires less Gold, the Jewel's price is lower than most expect from Gold Jewellery.

"14 Karat Yellow and Rose Gold Body Jewellery is perfectly suitable to be used for initial Piercing Jewellery."

Gold itself is quite soft. Hence, other materials are added to increase hardness. Nevertheless, Gold remains a certain softness. This may lead to some scratches on the surface over time. 14 Karat Gold comes with a finish to create that beautiful shine we all love. If you take good care of your 14 Karat Gold Jewellery, it will last for years. Make sure to read the maintenance instructions further on this page.

Tip!

When you shop for new Piercing Jewellery, make use of the filters to find only Piercings made of the Material you are after.

Gold Stamps

When you hold a piece of Gold Jewellery, just by the looks of it, you cannot tell the purity. Gold Jewelry is stamped to inform you of the number of karats, such as 14 Karats. There is a difference between the stampings for Gold Jewellery manufactured for the U.S. and that manufactured for the UK. In the U.S. you will find a '14K' stamp, while '585' is used in the UK. As we source our Body Jewellery mostly from the U.S., you will find the 14K stamp on our Jewellery. Please note that Gold Jewellery weighing less than 1 gram is usually not stamped.

Maintenance Instructions

Gold is known for its beautiful shine. To keep your Gold Body Jewellery's shine, you should clean it regularly. Gold does tarnish and scratch over time. For cleaning, use lukewarm water and a tiny bit of dish soap. You may want to disinfect your Piercing with alcohol, but bear in mind that this can damage the finish. To polish your Gold Body Jewellery, we recommend using our polishing cloth. If you wear Gold Jewellery to the beach or keep it in when cleaning your Piercing with a saline solution, remember to clean your Jewel afterwards.

Chlorine can do serious harm to your Gold Jewellery. Always make sure to remove any Gold Jewellery before swimming in a pool or visiting the spa. Do not expose Gold Jewellery to perfume, lotion, hairspray, makeup, and chemical cleaners. Put your Gold Piercing Jewellery in after getting ready to limit the exposure.
We don't recommend using Gold jewellery for Tongue Piercings. When you do wear a Gold Tongue Barbell, keep in mind that acids can lead to discolouration and damage to the Jewellery's finish.
