Grade 23 Solid Titanium Body Jewelry
Titanium has become the metal of choice in the body jewelry industry because of its superior machinability, lighter weight, and its hypoallergenic properties. Titanium is the ideal material for individuals sensitive to other materials.
Titanium can be polished to a high luster resembling that of 316L implant grade stainless steel. Titanium body jewelry can also have color added through the electrolytic passivation, also known as anodizing. Anodizing is a process whereby an electrical current is passed through the metal, which then builds oxides on the surface of the metal. When light is refracted through this oxidized film, a wide spectrum of vivid metallic colors are seen.
