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.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
