Gold Plated Body Piercing Jewelry

Montana Body Art sells only the finest quality gold plated body piercing jewelry available and warranties all of our gold plated jewelry to be 100% free of defects upon arrival. For most people, these items hold up very well and are an excellent value.

Some people are sensitive to the metals contained in the alloys of karat gold used in the plating process. Even 24 karat (pure) gold can sometimes cause problems in body piercing jewelry as the soft surface of the metal contains microscopic imperfections which can harbor bacteria. Because of this, plated jewelry is not recommended for body piercing which are not completely healed—for a navel piercing the healing process can take as long as several years. Additionally, some people’s body chemistry is acidic in nature and will attack the gold plating resulting in a premature degradation of the jewelry.

While neither of these conditions is extremely common, they do exist. Montana Body Art guarantees all of our plated body jewelry to be brand new and in perfect condition upon arrival. Due to the nature of the items and the variances among our customers however, we can not guarantee that it will be compatible for you.

Because of this, Montana Body Art does not recommend gold plated body piercing jewelry in unhealed piercings and will not warranty these items against wear or fading. Because of this, all gold plated body piercing jewelry sales are final and no returns will be accepted for reasons other than manufacturing defects or shipping damage.
