Whether you have a labret or a Monroe piercing- or both- the options are endless. But when comfort is also key, titanium is a fantastic option. Shiny and brilliant yet lightweight and 100% hypoallergenic, titanium body jewelry offers the best of both worlds.
Titanium is a natural element and is the hardest metal available. It is triple the strength of steel, yet super lightweight- about 40% lighter than steel. This lighter weight makes it perfect for a piercing, as it won’t stretch and pull on the hole.
The durability also makes titanium much more resistant to scratches than silver and gold- but it’s not completely scratch-resistant so some care must be taken to avoid it. An added bonus: it is much less likely to tarnish than regular silver or gold body jewelry.
Along with its light weight, the biggest benefit of titanium in body jewelry is that it is hypoallergenic, meaning it is completely compatible with the human body so it’s safe for most people to wear, even if they have an allergy to metal. It also has no reaction to sunlight, sweat, or saltwater so it’s a great option for those living an active lifestyle. Most rings listed as “titanium” are pure titanium; some are surgical steel with a titanium coating or “plating.” If you are looking for the light weight property of this metal, be sure to buy all-titanium body jewelry.
The natural color of titanium is a neutral gray color, but for body jewelry is it most often colored with oxides on the surface which creates a brilliant color and shine.
Keeping titanium clean is also relatively easy. Using a mix of mild soap and water is enough to gently wash it. Simply dip the jewelry in the mix and wipe with a soft cloth. For colored titanium, it’s best to wipe it with your finger instead of a cloth, so as not to wipe any of the color off.
Titanium rings are perfect for labret, Monroe and all other variations of these facial piercings because of their weight and hypoallergenic qualities. The same gauge size of ring can be worn in any of these piercings - it is typically 14 gauge or 16 gauge- so it’s easy to quickly build a collection of jewelry if you have one or more of these piercings.
These kinds of face piercings often get negative comments from dentists and other critics due to the fact that there is some chance of the jewelry damaging the teeth and gums. But with careful cleaning, and watchful placement, there is often no more of a risk than with a regular tongue ring.
