Our Nickel Free Cobalt Chrome is a metal alloy that combines both Cobalt and Chromium alloys. Cobalt Chrome is one of the best combinations of metals currently being used in the body jewellery industry. Not only is it an amazingly strong metal, thanks to the Chromium, but the Cobalt gives it that shine and lustre we all want in body jewellery. It has an incredibly high resistance to corrosion which makes it perfect for long term wear in new and established piercings and it is hypoallergenic making it the perfect metal type for those with sensitive skin.
The best thing about Cobalt Chrome? It is 100% Nickel Free and bio-compatible, it is a material that is widely used in dental work and medical implants such as knee replacements.
Cobalt Chrome has the strength and durability of Titanium while not comprising the aesthetics of the piece. Although titanium is an extremely popular choice for piercings, it can have a darker silver tone to the metal, whereas Cobalt Chrome is a very bright, shiny metal that is akin to precious metals such as White Gold and Platinum – without the price tag!
Cobalt Chrome is the up-and-coming metal alloy in the Body Jewellery industry and we’re excited to bring it to Essential Beauty.
