|Titanium belly button ring.|
I sent my assistant Nick out to the local mall to find some titanium body jewelry to test for an article I was working on for my Popular Science column. Many products these days use "titanium" in a promotional way on their packaging: Not all of them contain actual titanium. We found several fake titanium products, but the piercing jewelry was all real, because fake titanium inserts would likely cause bad reactions with the skin, or would corrode. You might be able to get away with selling a fake titanium golf club, but a fake titanium tongue stud would get you in trouble.
