Zircon Steel & Zircon Titanium (Gold Coloured PVD)

Zircon Steel Jewelled Nose Stud (Gold colour PVD)Zircon Steel and Zircon Titanium body jewellery are steel or titanium products coated in a Zircon compound using a Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) process to give a gold colour.

The high tech PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) process is a where a coating is deposited onto the jewellery by vaporising Zirconium Nitride (ZrN) by passing a high voltage current through the Zirconium compound emitter in a hot and high pressure kiln.

The durable low friction PVD coating is used in many applications from tooling, watches and F1 car engines to the medical arena.   Zircon Steel Fake Plug (Gold colour PVD)Gold coloured Zircon Steel and Zircon Titanium body jewellery is a great alternative to the more expensive, and less durable, gold plated jewellery.
