Is it possible that PVD coated titanium jewelry can be implat grade?

It is possible that the titanium which is underneath the coating/plating created by the PVD process is implant-grade. It’s also possible that it’s not. I believe the PVD process can be used to apply a coating/plating to many different types of materials; both implant-grade and not.

  2. what Derek said is true sure it IS possible.

    But the reality is the current body jewelry that’s predominately sold is not ASTM F136 6Al-4V ELI Titanium its something called G23 Titanium which unfortunately at this moment in time I can’t recall the EXACT difference, there apparently is a significant difference though. And not just the ASTM label that’s slapped to the one mentioned.
