Body piercing jewellery is jewellery manufactured specifically for use in body piercing.
Originally, hardly any other jewellery than circular earrings were used in modern Western body piercing. As the body piercing
became more of a fashion, a vast amount of specially crafted jewellery became available. Materials used for production have
grown from traditional gold and silver to widespread use of surgical steel as well as titanium, glass, several kinds of plastics
(PTFE, Tyron, bioplast, nylon), wood, horn, amber, stone, bamboo, silicone, fossilized ivories, tusks and other bones, and even porcelain.
