Once you have a fully healed piercing, you will probably want to get some new jewelry for it. You'll have many choices at this point; along with the stainless steel that you were probably pierced with, you can also choose other metals. The richest of these is gold, in 10 kt or 14 kt.
You'll want to make sure that you're buying gold and not gold-plated jewelry for your piercing, as the plated jewelry can cause reactions in sensitive people. Gold body jewelry will cost more than stainless steel, but it will give you a more elegant look.
