Body Jewelry Store
Body jewelries, what to look for
If you're looking for a jewelry store then you will definitely be in quite a pickle. There are practically thousands of jewelry stores online. You can spend hours and hours looking at the multitude of jewelry selections online.
You can easily find genuine and expensive body jewelry as well as the cheap fake ones. You can find jewelry made from unique materials. The only problem that you would have is choosing the right body jewelry. There are a lot of things to consider including the type, make, cost, and design. It is important that you pick a store that can give options to choose from.
Admittedly, body jewelries are different from each other. The key is looking for the right and quality jewelry which would allow you to maximize its functionality and aesthetic value without as much as spending half of your savings on them.
One of the most important things that you should know is the correct term for each kind of body jewelry. Stores might get confused with what you are saying and end up selling you the wrong type of jewelry. For tongue ornaments, try saying straight barbell and not "tongue ring." Also a curved barbell or bananabell is used instead of "navel ring."
Familiarity with the different types of jewelry will make you more confident on your purchase and will help you compare and choose the best stores. The basic types include captive ball rings, plugs and barbells which are further subdivided into straight, curved, or circular. Also, you should recognize and identify what are labrets, septums, nose screws, twists, nose bones, eyelets, spirals, pinchers, claws, and talons.
Knowing each kind is not enough, however. You also need to know which one's go where. The good thing is that most jewelry can be worn in many types of piercing. But surface piercings are limited to surface bars only. Other things that you need to consider are the correct sizes, the materials used (it's best to use surgical steel, titanium if you have sensitive body chemistry) and flexibility of the jewelry. Avoid wearing body jewelry that will restrict your movements too much. Also, make sure that you inspect closely the jewelry before you buy them. Make sure the finish is smooth.
Now, there are some things that you also remember when buying body jewelry. As much as possible, avoid buying from non-specialty stores, or cheap mall stores (the internet too) especially if you're buying piercing jewelry. Since these types of stores are not experts and don't know the difference between silver and titanium jewelries. You might end up buying a barbell which the store claims to surgical steel but actually is a nickel based alloy. You'll end up having irritations and even infections because of the wrong purchase. Always go to the experts in these sorts of things.
Also, some additional tips: when someone urges you to buy plastic, acrylic, or lucite jewelry, ignore them. Even though these types are really cheap, they are designed not to be worn over extended periods. In addition, when you feel the metal of your jewelry is reacting too much to your body creating bad odors and tarnishing, then one could use organic ones like those body jewelry made from stone, horn, wood, or bone, or glass.
One thing should be remembered, though, when using organic made jewelries they should never be worn on a fresh piercing. These types of body ornaments are only worn on piercings that have healed considerably.
