Here at Expressions, we are currently converting our jewelry to internally threaded ONLY and aim to provide our customers with the best healing experience possible. With many different options to choose from, we offer a range of products to best fit your piercing experience. We are pleased to announce we now offer piercings with jewelry from Neometal, Anatometal, and LeRoi Body Jewelry. If you ever have any questions about a jewelry company or would like to inquire about a special order, do not hesitate to contact us so we may work together to acquire the best product possible for you.
Neometal – Anatometal – Le Roi Fine Body Jewelry
As we are attempting to convert our shop to accommodate APP-approved standards, these companies were an easy “trifecta” of selection to present as our highest quality jewelry. If you want the best there is, this is the simple selection. With a variety of stones and gems to choose from that decorate the hand polished ASTM F136 compliant Titanium all three companies use, this is simply the best you can buy. Feel free to visit their individual sites: Anatometal, Neometal, LeRoi Body Jewelry. Browse and give us some feedback on your favorite pieces so that we can order some for you!
Rest assured that if we don’t carry the exact piece you are looking for, it will be our pleasure to custom order the piece for you!!!
316L Surgical Steel
This is the basic starter jewelry we offer here, and our options in this material now come exclusively internally threaded to avoid any irritation to your piercing. This material is implant grade and contains a low amount of carbon along with a low nickel content to avoid any reaction you may have. Meeting all the minimum standards for implant grade jewelry, this is the simplest jewelry you can start with if you so choose.
Lightweight and very durable, it has the option of being anodized to different colours of the spectrum. Imagine an oil slick and the colors that may reflect from it, and there you have every color titanium makes available to you. It is common to see this coated around 316L Surgical steel to lower the cost of manufacturing, and this makes it a tad bit more eccentric than the normal 316L.
Gold Plated: 14k, 18k, and 20k gold
It is important to know that not all that glitters is gold! Gold must be a minimum of 14k to qualify as implant grade. The gold content at this karat accounts for 58% of the piece you are purchasing, so anything less than that may cause a tarnishing effect on your piercing. To our customers that wish for the less expensive alternative to a piece of 14k+ Gold, we offer gold-plated jewelry. This is similar to the G23 Titanium you may come across as it is 316L coated in gold. Any genuine gold will cost a pretty penny, yet we believe is worth every cent! Gold is hypoallergenic and is a very valid choice for any piercing need you may have, although it may be a tad tough on your budget!
Similar to Titanium, Niobium is able to be anodized to various colors and is hypoallergenic. All of our LeRoi hearts are made with Niobium to suit your body and its healing process. It is made in the U.S. and hand polished to shine bright for everyone to see. It is a softer metal than titanium, but weighs a tad more. It is extremely rare to be allergic to a pure source of Niobium as it doesn’t react to oxygen or any cleaning products. It can also be treated to a dim black color (matte). This flexibility and diversity makes it a tad more expensive than Titanium.
For anyone with ear stretching needs, wood can be an option to fill your ear. It is extremely light, depending on the type of wood you choose, and keeps your ears warmer than metal would in the colder months. It is always suggested to purchase some aftercare oil as wood dries with time and we discourage our customers from getting their plugs/tunnels wet. The variety of wood and organics makes it a very unique selection based on your taste and preference! As we carry very few organics other than wood, we always urge our customers to do their research and approach us with any questions about organics before purchasing them as we may be able to order them from any number of reputable companies at their request.
