316L Implant Grade Surgical Steel is often used in piercings because of its low nickel release. Nickel release rates measure the amount of nickel released into the body over time. Metal Mafia’s 316L surgical steel meets the European nickel directive requirements which are the most stringent in the world. Our steel is lead free, cadmium free and CPSIA compliant.
Styles available include barbells, curved bars, horseshoes, upper ear, cartilage, industrial, labret, rook, daith, captive bead, segment rings and ear piercing studs in a variety of lengths and diameters, ranging from ¼” to 2”.
Our 316L steel is available in both externally threaded and internally threaded styles. Externally threaded jewelry has threading on the outside of the shaft, whereas internally threaded jewelry has the threads inside the shaft.
We make the metal certificates for our steel available at all times via the metal certificates area on our website (https://metalmafia.com/metal-certificates). Just click on the link for 316L steel, and you can download all the certificates corresponding to our current stock. We also archive our historical certificates. When purchasing steel jewelry from any manufacturer, it is important to check the metal certificates and confirm that you are purchasing 316L steel and not 304 steel, as 304 is not intended for use in the body.
If you pierce navels, you can shop for 316L steel bananas in two different gem sizes, the standard 5mm and 8mm gems or the petite 4mm and 6mm versions for a daintier look. Our curved navel rings are available in 13 different gem colors, and are either bezel set or prong set, depending on your preference.
Our octagon prong-set clear ear piercing studs are also perfect for ear piercings. They come in 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, and 8mm sizes so even first-time ear piercings can be done with high quality cubic zirconia set in full 316L settings.
Don’t miss our steel septum jewelry that threads from the inside out, making insertion easy, and creating the most comfortable wearing experience possible.
In many of our steel silhouettes, you have the option to choose colors a la carte or purchase assortments which give you some of every color.
