Though jewelry made of various types of materials are worn in such piercings, the best jewelry for labret piercing should be those that are made from bio-compatible and inert materials. Nickel should be avoided.

  • Medical grade stainless steel, surgical stainless steel which passes ASTM or ISO standards are the most recommended and used because it is most safe, prevents infection and easily adaptable to the human body.
  • Implant grade titanium is also very much in vogue and they are safe, infection resistant, hypo allergic and compatible with the body.
  • Platinum is another material of choice. It should not be the first material immediately after piercing but it can be safely worn later.
  • Solid 14 or 18 carat nickel free yellow or white gold and niobium can be worn too.
