Body jewellery UK delivery for free with all orders over £10; cheap body jewellery starting at under £1; belly button rings, navel jewellery, tongue rings, tongue bars, nose studs, titanium pieces; where to buy in the UK and how to find the best shops online – if you have a body piercing, Jewelry & Accessories knows where to get the products you want at the prices you can afford.
Body Jewellery UK
If you live in the UK, you probably want to buy from a body jewellery shop that offers same day or next day delivery, or at least sends your orders out as soon as you place them and uses Royal Mail First Class, UK Royal Recorded Deliver, Special delivery or UPS Express Domestic Service.
If you don’t want your body piercing jewellery to be shipped from abroad, then you will likely choose the Body Jewellery Shop or Joe Bananas.
We like Joe Bananas and you can find cheap body jewellery there, but this week Jewelry & Accessories is reviewing and featuring the Body Jewellery Shop. Here are some of the products they sell and what you can expect to pay.
Shopping Online at the Body Jewellery Shop
We start with one of the hottest items which is navel body jewellery or what is often referred to as belly button rings. The Body Jewellery Shop has everything from BCRs in gold to curved barbells and even simple acrylic pieces as well as lots of dangling charms to adorn your navel.
For just £3 you can have a gold plated ring that comes with a gold ball and is a very chic choice. Gold body jewellery isn’t always the best choice, since steel and titanium are the most hypoallergenic, especially for everyday wear, but for special occasions it’s a fun idea to have a gold ring and maybe even a gemstone dangle.
For just £2 you can choose a variety of semi-precious threaded gemstones to add to a ring or barbell since each ball is designed so as to accommodate a 1.6mm threaded stem, which means you can mix and match with the navel bananabells or with regular barbells or even create your own personal design using a circular barbells or add a gem to your favorite body spiral or labret stud.
The fun thing about the threaded semi-precious gemstone ball is that some of the stones are iridescent or even glitter varieties, and they can be strung or pressed or threaded onto almost any jewelry to create sets or just have something that’s uniquely your own.
Some people have used them on a bioplast labret and others have added them to rings and barbells. But one thing that’s really brilliant is that you can also get gemstone push-fit accessories with silver accents that work with the push-fit Bioplast jewellery or piercing tubes, nose studs and the labret studs.
Don’t limit your belly button piercing jewellery to the styles that are ready made when you can construct your own pieces and give a personal touch. It’s also a fun and affordable way to make unique presents for your friends who share your piercing passion.
Tongue Piercing Body Jewellery
Tongue piercing jewellery includes things like flat tongue studs and also the flexible variety, and those that have personalized pictures, like the picture tongue bars.
There are also nonmetal piercing retainers for the tongue, barbells, elaborate tongue studs with gems and simple ones with little motifs. Don’t forget you can attach threaded accessories to barbells and studs, and of course there are the ever popular tongue ticklers that can be really small and simple like the bubble balls or spikey spheres or silicone UV tong ticklers that are just £1.50.
Titanium Body Jewellery
Titanium body jewellery is not just strong, durable and biocompatible but it’s also really light and comes in super fun colors.
The colored titanium for piercings that is coloured has been anodized, so the color is not just a superficial coat of enamel or plating so it’s less likely to cause irritation. You can get colourful pieces like the titanium BCRs, bananabells and even flesh tunnels, barbells, spirals and labret studs.
Titanium belly rings come in beautiful colors and cost just £2.99. There’s not just rainbow, but violet, blue, green and even black ones. They come in 1.2mm, which equals 16 gauge, or 1.6mm, which is a 14 gauge.
But why choose titanium over classic stainless steel?
Stainless steel is still popular, but titanium offers several things that steel can’t. First it’s half as heavy, which means it won’t stretch or pull piercings even if they are large and appear to be heavy, especially dangle belly rings with charms, where you want the lightest possible jewellery you can get.
It’s also not possible to alter the molecular structure of steel to change color the way it is done through a process called anodizing with titanium. If the process is well done, the color is much more than superficial, in fact it should have penetrated at least halfway through the jewellery which means no chipping or pealing or color wearing off quickly. You don’t really want to use plated body jewelry because the base metal may not be biocompatible or hypoallergenic, but with titanium you ever have to worry no matter what color the piece is. Titanium and its alloys are safe even for the most intimate peircings.
At the Body Jewellery Shop in the UK, they use what is called grade 23 surgical titanium which is the metal used for surgical implants like heart valves and pacemakers. So the quality and compatibility with your body is unquestionable.
We just want to advise our readers that the only alloy that you do not want in your body piercing jewellery is nickel because it can cause an allergic reaction in some cases. However it is also true that nickel may be rendered inert when mixed with titanium so just double check if the pieces you are choosing are 100% hypoallergenic and will not cause allergic reactions when inserted into intimate piercings. Most of the titanium belly rings, titanium barbells, and the tongue piercing jewellery you will find at the Body Jewellery Shop have very detailed descriptions that state the exact specifications of each piece.
Buying body jewellery isn’t the same as buying regular fashion accessories like bracelets and rings and necklaces because these are not invasive, except for pierced earrings, in the same way that labrets and belly rings and intimate piercing are. That is why you will want to stick with Bioplast, stainless steel or titanium as much as possible.
