Body Jewellery Sizing

All our body jewellery is made with specific hypo-allergenic properties to ensure the highest quality for piercing products. The only metals we use in our body jewellery are surgical steel, sterling silver or Titanium. These are clearly marked in our product descriptions.

Beware of Base Metal or “Fashion” metal pieces. These metals are normally brass, pewter, copper and numerous others which are then plated with another metal such as Rhodium. These “Fashion” metals do not offer long lasting hypo-allergenic properties and can break down easily and cause infection.

Butterfly Silver do not provide a piercing service. We do however, provide a large range of body jewellery once you have been pierced. Always use a professional and reputable piercer for best results.
