18ct Solid Yellow Gold is the highest grade, most radiant, and brightest of all the solid gold jewellery we sell. It is hypoallergenic and therefore suitable for use professionally as an implant jewellery for fresh piercings (this excludes most hinged or external thread jewellery). All of our gold jewellery weighs less than 1g, therefore there is no UK legal requirement to have it officially hallmarked. However, 18K or 750 is lasered onto each item. This excludes Anatometal jewellery which is sourced from the US. The composition of our 18K gold is 75% pure gold, 15% silver and 10% copper. It is also available in 18ct white gold through alloying pure gold with palladium (75% gold, 25% palladium). To create 18ct rose gold, pure gold is alloyed with copper (75% gold, 22.2% copper, 2.2% silver).
14ct Solid Yellow Gold is the second highest grade of all the solid gold jewellery we sell. Like 18ct, 14ct is also hypoallergenic and therefore suitable for use professionally as an implant jewellery for fresh piercings (this excludes most hinged or external thread jewellery). All of our gold jewellery weighs less than 1g, therefore there is no UK legal requirement to have it officially hallmarked. However, 14K is lasered onto each item sourced from the UK. The composition of our 14ct gold is 58.3% gold, 30% silver and 11.70%. It is also available in 14ct white gold through alloying pure gold with silver metals such as palladium or silver (75% gold, 32.2% silver, 9.5% palladium). To create 14ct rose gold, pure gold is alloyed with copper (58.3% gold, 32.5% copper, 9.2% silver).
Surgical Stainless Steel 316L is still the original body piercing jewellery and favoured by those seeking a silver-like colour match. Surgical steel is non-corrosive, hard-wearing and scratch resistant and offers a wide choice in product design. It is safe to be worn in healed piercings only.
Titanium 6Al-4VEli ASTM:F-136 is used for surgical implants and is safe enough to be used for body piercing. It is bio compatible (non-toxic) and suitable for those with a nickel allergy. It is three times stronger than steel and its incredible light weight makes it ideal for piercings susceptible to migration or rejection. Highly polished titanium is a shade darker than surgical steel but through the process of electroplating, can be anodised into different colours whilst retaining its safe properties. See Metal Colour Chart.
Semi-precious Gemstones have the power to heal and stabilise moods; each one has different properties. Some gems are also birthstones and make a great present if you need some extra inspiration. They are solid and cold in nature and likely to chip or scratch if dropped.
All metal jewellery available through Isha Body Jewellery, has been randomly assessed for quality and holds a Certificate of Conformity from the Sheffield Assay Office. This complies with the legislation under the EU Nickel Directive 2004/96/EC.
