We strongly recommend that initial jewellery worn in a healing piercing should be left in place or where required, changed by a licenced piercer only. Changing jewellery at home using non-sterile jewellery, before the piercing has fully healed, can risk infection. Please consult your piercer wherever possible.
UK standard vacuum sterilisation, autoclaved at Isha Studio. Each item will be sterilised in a paper pouch with a light blue window. Unless damaged, the contents remain sterile, for one year from when they were autoclaved. The process date is detailed on each pouch.
Sterilisation is only available on jewellery purchased from Isha Body Jewellery that is of suitable hypoallergenic material: Implant/Medical Grade Titanium ASTM F-136/F138, 14ct/18ct Gold, Niobium or our Boroscilicate Glass. This can be found here: Jewellery For Studio Piercing - Isha Body Jewellery. Other materials will not be sterilised (non-implant grade steel or titanium).
Please allow 48 hours for sterilisation of jewellery. This is only available when the studio is open and not booked with appointments.
