Gold is considered as one of the most precious metals in the world and is appropriate for initial piercings if it is 14k or 18k. Gold higher than 18k is too soft for body jewelry because it can easily be scratched.

Wherever there is enough surface space, we mark all our Real Gold items with either 750 (for 18 karat) or 585 (for 14 karat).
Additionally, we also mark our Swiss Responsibility Mark («Verantwortlichkeitsmarke») which guaranties the gold content of our products.
Please note that gold may tarnish and/or deform in the autoclave, and this will void any warranty on product.
The stones we use under this name are CUBIC ZIRCONIA cut and polished to perfection. They have all the characteristics of a real diamond with its exceptional cut and sheer brilliance. All stones for our Piercings are set by hand and items are polished by hand.
Cubic Zirconia material is relatively cheap and the biggest aspect of the price difference to regular Zirconia lies in the extra cutting and polishing effort and machinery used to make those Premium quality Zirconias. The more precise the facets are cut, the better the light reflects (sparkle).
