Is Sterling Silver OK For New Piercings?

by @ 1:08 am on May 26, 2020. Filed under Sterling Silver


Do not wear sterling silver jewelry in unhealed body piercings…. Since sterling silver is still soft enough to scratch, nicks in the jewelry are a breeding ground for bacteria. Sterling oxidizes when it comes in contact with body tissues and fluids. Tarnish, the end result, is not something you want in an open wound.
