Q & A: Gold Belly Rings

Image of real gold belly button ring from Belly BlingAt BellyBling we take pride in our wide variety of quality and affordable jewelry.  That said, when your date wants to buy you a nice birthday present, or you just want to spoil yourself a little bit, surgical steel is not necessarily the type of jewelry that comes to mind.  When you want to wear the best, you think of gold belly rings.

You may appreciate the value (sentimental or financial) of gold, but what do you really know about this precious metal?

Question #1: What is the difference between 14 karat gold and 18 karat gold?

Let’s back up. What’s a karat? A karat is simply a way to measure the purity of gold; it represents the ratio of gold to other metals within the jewelry. Each piece of gold jewelry contains 24 different parts of metal. For example, a 14k gold ring contains 14 parts of gold and 10 parts of other metals.

Now that you understand what 14K gold means, the labels should all start making sense. 18K gold is then 18 parts gold and 6 parts of another metal or metals. 24K gold is 100 percent pure gold.

Question #2: Are certain karats better suited for jewelry?

Yes. Gold is (relatively) soft compared to other metals, and for this reason 14K gold is often ideal for jewelry. Since it’s made up of more assorted metals than 18K gold, it is more durable. This is especially good to know if you live an active lifestyle, in case your jewelry needs to withstand a few blows every now and then.

Added bonus, 14K gold is also much cheaper!

Question #3: How many types of gold are there?image of white gold belly button ring from Belly Bling

First off, all gold starts out yellow. White gold is created when you add alloy nickel or palladium (white metals) with yellow gold. Our selection of white gold belly rings is one of our most popular categories.

Rose gold is created by combining pure yellow gold and copper. Adding the copper gives gold a rose colored tint and makes a great update to even the most classic belly rings styles.

Case in point: our rose gold ball belly ring.

Question #4: How do you clean gold? 

Just like when you get your ears pierced and the store hands you a cleaning solution, there are solutions you can buy for your gold. You can also clean your gold using an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner.

Note: While we don’t recommend polishing all of your gold jewelry this way, you can clean our line of 14K belly button rings with detergent-free soap and water.

Question #5: Anything else you should know?

While avoiding detergent-based soapy water, you should also avoid chlorine (your eyes aren’t the only thing this chemical takes its toll on). Chlorine can permanently change the color of your gold belly bling. Why take the risk? Leave it at home while you’re at that pool party.

Last but not least, stay away from sand. As we mentioned, real gold is a soft metal. It’s so soft that it can get scratched up when rubbed in or on sand, so before you head to the beach be sure and change out your belly ring for something a little more durable, such as titanium body jewelry or even a flexible plastic belly button ring.

Whether you prefer white or yellow gold, there is no denying that it makes a statement. When you buy it for yourself it says you’re sophisticated, and when given as a gift from a loved one, it says you mean the world.
