It depends on the metal used. For surgical steel its $40, for titanium it’s $60.
A word about titanium….
I use both grade 5 and 23 titanium with my piercings as an upgrade for people with a nickel sensitivity or a preference towards it. Many will cry that grade 5 is inferior and cannot be used in piercings. This is…. not exactly true. At all. We’ll kill this one with science….
Technically speaking, grade 23 and 5 are variations of the same alloy - TI6AL4V (titanium alloyed with 6% aluminum and 4% vanadium). The difference between grades comes from the different oxygen content in each of them (0.13% in grade 23, 0.20% in grade 5) which modify some of the basic alloy mechanical properties such as strength and toughness. It’s difficult to say which one is better, regarding a jewelry item. Grade 23 is more malleable, while grade 5 has more strength. However, it is highly unlikely that a nose ring used in normal circumstances will be put under such stress factors for these differences to become noticeable. There is no difference between grades as regarding hypoallergenic properties, meaning they are both virtually allergy free.
So there you go. Same metal with a different oxygen content.
