We have a shop in Sacramento, Ca with a picky clientele. We were purchasing nickelite from another source until we came upon Real Steel Body Jewelry. The prices were better, the quality was great and the certificate of metal used was an asset. To avoid any obvious complications we only use nickel free piercing steel and Grade 23 titanium barbells.
We placed a rather large order of barbells in 14 gauge in various lengths. Everything was primo! The thread was uniform on the balls and had a deep opening.
The titanium barbells were the grade 23 as advertised. It gets old getting ripped off from people who SAY THEY SELL GRADE 23 TITANIUM and it's nothing more than color plating over steel.
We are very happy with our new provider and took the time to pass the information on.
