High-End Belly Button Rings

If you have your navel pierced, you probably spend a fair bit of time shopping for new jewelry. If you're like most people, you gravitate towards the cheaper belly button rings simply because it doesn't always make sense to spend a lot of money on something so small. However, I challenge you to consider these pieces to be more like regular jewelry, and as such, look into some high-end pieces.

If you haven't actually gotten your piercing yet, you might consider purchasing a surgical steel piece as the ring you wear while your piercing heals. Implant grade steel is preferred, but most experts agree that 316-L surgical grade stainless steel is appropriate for a new piercing. Stainless steel is appreciated because it is hypoallergenic and therefore won't react with the tissues of the body to cause an allergic reaction. Choose the piece carefully as you will wear it for many months while your navel heals.

After the appropriate amount of healing time, you will be able to change out the stainless piece for something more decorative. This is the time when you might consider some of the high-end belly button rings on the market. Some metals to consider include titanium and gold. While these belly button rings are certainly more expensive than the ones you can buy at a jewelry store in the mall, you will find that they will last for years and years. There is also very little risk of allergic reaction from these metals.

If you can't afford titanium or gold, it's worth it to try and save up some money until you can afford a nicer piece. In the meantime, you might choose to leave your stainless steel piece in place since it will reduce the incidence of infection. When you can afford to buy the belly button rings that you have been saving for, you will find that your wait was worth it.
