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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
