Cheap Jewelry Sucks

Folks, this is why you shouldn’t buy cheap crap jewelry. I’m thinking about posting who made this but I haven’t decided yet whether I want the legal fight. But I will tell you that this jewelry was not removed from a human — it was in storage for a few months in a drawer for a few months in its original packaging… Think what would have happened if it had been in, say, a tongue for a few months!

Good jewelry is expensive because the materials being used are high quality. Do you really want to skimp on this? Maybe this helps illustrate why a good barbell doesn’t cost $2.99.

    I say tell who the maker is or…As you did with the piercing guns, get a few jewelery samples, leave sealed for 12 months then look at them.

    that screams hot topic type jewelry lol

    i have hot topic jewelry and never have had problems with it other than the cheap acrylic balls stripping.

    OMG EW.

  2. I have almost all my jewelry (12 different types barying in size from 14g-0g, acrylic and surgical) from Hot Topic. Some of it has been in for 3 years with absolutley no problems. The only jewelry I’ve ever had issues with was from an actual piercing shop (with a very good reputation). So, although I’m one to dis Hot Topic as much as the next for their clothing/crappy merchendise, I must say that in terms of the jewelry, it has posed no problems for me.

  3. Spencer’s? I used to work there, and this *looks* familiar, but it could really be anywhere. That’s just what my gut tells me
