When it comes to golden jewelry, we only offer 14 karat gold quality, which is particularly suitable for piercings because it is of high quality and stability.
- Pure gold in its natural state (24 K) would be too soft to be processed into jewelry. Piercing jewelry with a high proportion of gold scratches and deforms easily. Therefore, gold is mixed with other metals to a certain percentage.
- Therefore, a metal mixture is used to produce 14k golden jewels, which usually contain a proportion of nickel. However, as long as the procedure respects the legal top limits, jewelry with a minimal nickel admixture will be offered as "nickel-free".
- It may still cause problems for people who suffer from allergies. If you happen to be allergic to nickel, you should refrain from wearing gold 14k jewelry if you belong to this group of people. Many nickel allergy sufferers react not only to nickel but also to other metals, such as cobalt or palladium. It means that even high-quality jewelry pieces (for example, made from gold), may cause allergy.
