What is G23 Titanium Post?
G23 solid titanium post is by far the top choice for body piercings and can be safely used for initial piercings. Implant grade titanium G23 (Ti-6Al-4V-ELI, Certified ASTM F136) is the material used in surgical implants, is biocompatible (friendly with your body), much lighter than surgical steel, resistant to body fluids and 100% nickel-free.
What is Internally Threaded Post?
Internally threaded post has a threaded hole inside the post, and then an external thread protruding from the stud. A smooth post passes through the piercing, and then the stud is inserted and screwed into place.
The Association of Professional Piercers (APP) sets the standards to be followed by professional body piercers, and they make their position very clear in regards to threaded jewelry: Internally threaded jewelry is part of the APP standard for initial piercing jewelry: the part of the jewelry that passes through your skin is smooth, and the threads are on the removable end(s), such as balls, gems, or spikes.
Internally threaded jewelry avoids any possibility of scraping your tissue with sharp threads, which is especially important with fresh piercings.
What is PVD color coating?
PVD, or Physical Vapor Deposition, is a vacuum coating process that produces a brilliant decorative and functional color finish. PVD utilizes a titanium nitride that provides an extremely durable nickel-free color coating. PVD coatings are more resistant to corrosion from sweat and regular wear than gold plating or anodizing.
Advantages of PVD Coating
Much longer lifetime than gold plating or anodizing
PVD coatings are about 10 times thicker than standard gold plating

14K SOLID GOLD
