The Best Jewellery for Nose Piercings

A Guide To The Different Types

A septum ring piercing is one of the more popular nose piercings in young women.

Nose piercings are a timeless and elegant way to express your personal style and add a touch of sophistication to your appearance. The right choice of jewellery can enhance the beauty of your nose piercing, making it a standout feature. Before diving into the world of nose jewellery, it's important to understand the different areas of nose piercings:

Nostril Piercing: The most common type of nose piercing, typically located on one side of the nostril.

Septum Piercing: Located in the thin wall of cartilage that separates the two nostrils, the septum piercing is versatile and can be adorned with various jewellery styles.

Bridge Piercing: Placed through the bridge of the nose, this unique piercing offers the chance to showcase distinctive jewellery.

Nasallang Piercing: A combination of three piercings - two in the nostrils and one in the septum - that offers a bold and creative look.

Nostril Piercing - Jewellery for Nose Piercings

Nose rings and studs can be combined for a unique style.

For nostril piercings, you have several jewellery options to choose from:

Nose Studs: Nose studs are a classic choice for nostril piercings. They come in various materials such as gold, silver, and titanium. Choose a design that suits your style, whether it's a simple, elegant stud or something with a sparkling gemstone.

The Different Nose Piercing Jewellery Materials

Choosing the right materials for your nose piercing is essential for both its longevity and your comfort. The materials you select will play a significant role in how your piercing feels and looks, and the potential risks associated with it.

Surgical steel is a popular choice known for its hypoallergenic properties and durability. It resists rust and corrosion, making it a long-lasting option. However, some individuals may develop sensitivity to nickel, which is present in certain surgical steel alloys, so be sure to look for "nickel-free" options.

Titanium, another top choice, is non-reactive and lightweight, enhancing comfort. It's also available in various colours and styles, although it may be a bit pricier than other materials.

Gold offers a luxurious and timeless appeal for your nose jewellery. It comes in various types, such as yellow, white, and rose gold. Pure gold (24k) is hypoallergenic, but lower-karat gold may contain allergenic alloys like nickel. Keep in mind that gold jewellery can be relatively soft and prone to scratching.

Sterling silver, a classic choice, exudes elegance. It's a more budget-friendly option compared to gold or titanium but requires regular maintenance to prevent tarnishing. Some individuals might be sensitive to silver, so it's worth considering if you've had skin reactions in the past.

Bioflex is a flexible and biocompatible material known for its comfort and biocompatibility. It's ideal for individuals with metal sensitivities and offers flexibility and easy customisation. While it might lack the visual appeal of metal, it provides a discreet and minimalist look.

Caring For Nose Piercings - Custom Plugs

Caring for your nose piercing and the jewellery you adorn it with is crucial for a safe and successful piercing experience. When it comes to nose piercing aftercare, maintaining cleanliness is paramount.

Always ensure your hands are clean before handling your piercing, and avoid unnecessary contact to prevent bacterial contamination. Twice daily, use a saline solution to gently cleanse the piercing. This solution can either be store-bought or homemade by dissolving non-iodized sea salt in warm, distilled water.

Rinse the area with warm water after cleaning, gently patting it dry with a clean, disposable paper towel. Steer clear of harsh chemicals like alcohol or hydrogen peroxide, and do not twist or turn the jewellery during cleaning.

It's important to leave your initial jewellery in place for the recommended healing period (usually 6-8 weeks) to avoid complications.
