It’s been a growing trend for several months.

Diamonds might be forever, but for some brides-to-be, that’s enough.

Some women want to wear their engagement diamonds not on a ring, but embedded in their skin, the New York Post reports.

It’s a bit different from a regular piercing. The piercer removes a circle of skin and inserts a dermal anchor, then puts the gemstone on the anchor. The Post reports that the trend has been picking up steam over the past few months.

CBS New York reports that it’s a brief procedure that costs about $100 — not including diamond, of course.

The procedure is not without risks. 

CBS New York quoted Dr. Monica Halem saying, “There are a lot of important structures that sit right under the skin there that can easily be damaged, like tendons.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
