High Quality?

The general standard of piercing and body jewellery available across the UK has been low for a long time. In recent years there has been a movement to increase the quality level and our piercers have been at the forefront of this. We believe in high quality jewellery and the difference that it makes to a happy healthy piercing. Over a series of blog posts we are going to break down what makes a quality piece of jewellery and why this is important. These blog posts will cover:

  • Connection – Internal, External, Threadless
  • Material – Metals, Glasses, Plastics and Organics
  • Design – Jewellery Styles, Good from Bad, Surface Finish, Coatings
  • Initial Vs Healed – Sterilisation, Natural Oils
  • Gemstones – Types, Grades, Cuts

Sign up to our Email Mailing List for regular updates (Low Volume – No more than 1 per week).

For a more in-depth discussion about any of these subjects feel free to talk to any of our team by booking a free consultation on our book now page and they will be glad to share our passion with you.
