silver nose clear semi precious crystal-340x340

Silver nose stud with an embedded precious gem.

As silver has a high nickel content, it is rarely used in the manufacture of body jewellery. Nose studs are one of the few exceptions along with earrings. The purity of silver is measured in hundreds, the number is usually stapled on jewellery to show the precise purity. For example, 925 would be 92.5% silver and 7.5% other materials, such as nickel.

Silver body jewellery should never be used in fresh nose or ear piercings as body fluids and cleaning agents can cause the material to oxidise, releasing silver salts which can cause serious allergies and discolour the area around the piercing.

A material that almost looks like silver but is much more biocompatible is titanium. It is the best material for people with nickel allergies and is very lightweight. See Titanium for further information.
