Two days ago I had someone bring a piece of jewelry in. He handed it to me, I took a look at it and was blown away.
He hands me an externally threaded labret stud with threads on BOTH ends of the ball. Ok I thought, Maybe it could be used for connecting two pieces of externally threaded jewelry together, I dont know. Well, come to find out the thread on the OPPOSITE end of the ball was once used to hold a PLASTIC “gem”. Incidentally that gem had decentegrated. Basically it melted. Wow, now thats a nice piece of jewelry.
So, we all know that there is good and bad jewely out there. Cheap and more expensive. I guess what I am getting to is that you can’t buy a Honda and expect a Mercedes. What really gets me is that the above mentioned EXTERNALLY THREADED piece of jewelry cost that person $30.00… with a fake, plastic gem.
You can rest assure that if you had one from here that would NOT happen, and if it did for some crazy reason. I’d replace it free of charge. We guarantee our jewelry… Something not many can say.
