The crystal butterfly belly bar with cubic zirconia is simply gorgeous. This is a little more expensive as the butterfly section is made from sterling silver. It is 14 gauge and 10 mm in length, which is the standard size for belly piercings. The part that goes through the body is made from surgical steel. This is the appropriate material for body piercing jewellery
Ball at the top end of the bar unscrews and can be replaced with any other body jewellery ball with a 14 gauge thread.
Both the 14 gauge stem and the top ball are made from surgical steel 316L. This mean they are implant-grade surgical stainless steel – it is probably the most common and most widely used metal for body piercings. Surgical Stainless Steels (316L) are used for bone fixation screws, body pins, bone plates, staples, amongst many other applications. We do not play or gamble with your health.
If you’re wearing surgical steel jewellery and are having problems with irritation or a new piercing that just won’t heal, it is possible that you have a intolerance of surgical steel and might want to try titanium.
The Butterfly Belly Bar is made from sterling silver and features a 92.5 stamp, this means it is 92.5% fine silver with no more than 7.5% of copper or other metals. This formula is internationally accepted and it gives sterling silver the hardness and the tolerance to work with. Anything higher than 92.5 would be too soft and tarnish too quickly. When you buy sterling silver from us we can guarantee it is just that!
Cubic zirconia is low cost, extremely durable and has a close visual likeness to diamonds. It is the cubic crystalline form of zirconium dioxide. This synthesized imitation diamond is hard wearing, optically flawless and originally colourless but can be made in a variety of colours. So it will look like you have a diamond at a snip of the price. Fake it until you make it!!
To preserve the shine on your silver avoid contact with ammonia, alcohol, fingernail polish remover or turpentine. ALWAYS remove sterling silver jewellery while in the hot pools.
