Large gauge barbells are much thicker and greater in size than the standard piercing jewellery barbells, specifically designed for larger gauge piercings that have been stretched up in size (gauge/thickness). Large gauge barbells are available in a choice of materials, colours and sizes to suit your requirements when stretching your piercing, or changing your large gauge jewellery for different occasions.
Surgical Steel Large Gauge Barbells
Surgical steel large guage barbells will be the heaviest jewellery material to choose from. Surgical steel barbells are incredibly popular due to the greatÂ value for money at such large sizes, being safe and practical to wear whilst also being very easy to get hold of in a great range of sizes. The weight of Surgical Steel large guage barbells can also be an advantage whilst stretching a piercing up, as the weight of the jewellery can naturally stretch the piercing with gravitational pull over longer periods of wear.
Titanium Large Gauge Barbells
Titanium large gauge barbells are lighter than surgical steel barbells, however, also a lot dearer to purchase. The range of sizes on titanium large gauge barbells is much more limited. Titanium is a popular metal to choose if you find the barbell to fit your piercing, as it contains no nickelÂ (this means it will be more biocompatible), is more durable and lighterÂ to wear.
Blackline Large Gauge Barbells
Blackline large gauge barbells are the same weight as Titanium large gauge barbells; also lighter than Surgical Steel barbells. Blackline is a very dear, high quality material that is also limited in the size availability. The greatest advantage of Blackline is the biocompatibility and weight of the jewellery, as well as the highly attractive PVD coated Blackline finish that really stands out.
