Some Women Are Choosing a Painful Alternative to the Engagement Ring

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.”

There’s also the danger that the embedded jewelry could snag on something and be pulled out.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
