Thailand is famous not only for its seaside resorts and magnificent Buddhist temples. It is considered the kingdom of precious and ornamental stones – rubies, sapphires, chrysolites, garnets, spinel, onyx, jade, malachite and others.
The main deposits of stones are located in Thailand along the coast of the Gulf of Thailand, in the eastern part of the country in the province of Sisak, on the border with Laos and near the border with Burma – in Kanchanaburi. The number of people who are involved in the extraction of stones currently reaches 300,000 people.
About 70% of all gems are mined in the Chanthaburi province on the coast of the Gulf of Thailand. There are deposits of blue, purple, pink, yellow and green sapphires.
One of the most popular stones mined in Thailand is the ruby. Red rubies with a slight purple hue from Thailand are close in quality to Burmese, which are considered the world standard for color.
The shades of Thai zircons are very diverse and range from brown and black to yellow, green and red. There are colorless and smoky zircons. According to Buddhist traditions, zircon is considered a symbol of courage, honor and wisdom. Thais believe that this stone will always help in any difficult situation. Among the locals, the most popular are pastel blue zircons, which are the amulet of travelers. Thais say that it changes color when a thunderstorm approaches and protects from the bites of poisonous snakes.
The emerald is also surrounded by many beliefs. It is considered a talisman for mothers, it is advised to wear it for pregnant women. The darker the color of the stone, the stronger its properties.
There are pearl farms in Thailand. Some of them can be visited as part of tourist groups. Experts have more than 250 shades of Thai pearls, its distinctive features are a noticeable shine and a thick layer of mother-of-pearl.
Castable wax resin – an innovative material for 3D printing
Castable Wax Resin is an innovative material that can be used to create 3D printed jewellery. A new generation of buyers prefers an unusual design and pays less and less attention to what metal the jewellery is made of and how many diamonds it is adorned with.
It was created by the American company Formlabs. It is a resin that can be used to 3D print pendants, rings and bracelets. Additive technologies that do not involve casting and sanding products save time in favor of expanding jewelry design options.
It is a wax-based substance. Technologies make it possible to create small details from this material – fancy curls and nets with small holes. Experts believe that such jewelry will be especially popular in India, China and Japan, where they love sophisticated products with a lot of details.
Jewellery-statements: the main mood of recent years
2020 has significantly changed both the understanding of form and material, and the very attitude to the creative process. Most of the designers continue to follow the principle of individual approach, creating jewellery so comfortable that you can fall asleep with it. The purpose of such products is not to showcase wealth, but to blend seamlessly with your image. They become your statement of your own existence, style, position. There are different techniques to implement these ideas.
For many centuries, refined correctness and severity of form have been valued in jewellery. In the modern world, “ideality” is subjected to serious criticism and rethinking, and a light veil of incompleteness and imperfection makes jewellery especially popular. This may explain the trend towards baroque pearls and crumpled metal.
The term “baroque” is borrowed from French and means “unusual”, “quirky”. This is the name for irregularly shaped pearls. It has an interesting wavy surface, which is different for each pearl – it is impossible to find two similar ones.
The name “crumpled metal” speaks for itself. In the course of work, curved metal plates of various sizes and colors are used.
Jewellery with these materials looks rebellious and defiant and is the main trend of recent years. Due to the uneven surface, the number of edges increases and, accordingly, the shine of the products. Their unusual appearance, as it were, excludes the possibility of stamping – one gets the feeling that each has its own story.
Such jewellery is created in accordance with the aesthetics of our time and is absolutely universal: they can be worn with evening dress and with everyday clothes.
This trend has appeared a long time ago: since the 2000s, it has conquered literally all fashion adherents. Layering came to the sphere of jewellery a little later, but it confidently holds its positions.
Most often, this word means a combination of several of the same type of jewellery. I’m sure you’ve already seen a dozen rings on girls’ thin fingers or a combination of an elegant choker with a sautoir.
Variations in styles, materials, length and massiveness of jewellery allow you to regularly bring novelty to the image, and the trend of layering itself becomes an obstacle on the way to meaningless consumerism – skillfully combining the contents of your jewellery box, you can avoid unnecessary spending.
Of course, there is a measure in everything. The “senseless and merciless” jumble of incongruous elements can harm not only your image, but also the eyes of others.
Disputes about whether it is possible to combine gold of two or three colors have been going on approximately since their discovery. Time, as usual, puts everything in its place.
Bicolor collections are in a hurry to help you. Products that combine different metals, paired earrings and bracelets of different colors open up space not only for a design flight of thought, but also for a variety of your looks.
Fine jewellery is viewed as an investment, a significant event. Such jewellery has a conservative design that shows luxury and opulence.
Demi-fine is bought as a gift to yourself. Most often, these are designer items designed to emphasize your uniqueness, to merge with you: inconspicuous necklaces and thin rings are as light as breath. They are suitable for those who want to wear quality jewellery, but think that displaying wealth is bad form.
In this case, the word “personalized” means jewellery that carries a certain message that is meaningful exclusively to you.
Most often, this is a necklace with the first letter of the name of your loved ones, a ring with a significant number for you, earrings with the image of your zodiac sign, and so on. This trend is the embodiment of the idea of an individual approach, jewellery in which the meaning and idea are laid.
Such jewellery is also called “accent” – they are massive, look provocative and unusual. If ordinary jewellery “says something about you,” then these ones scream.
Very long or massive earrings enjoy the greatest attention. If you choose them correctly, they will not only decorate the face, but also correct its shape. A huge number of options (chain earrings, spirals, hanging balls and drops with precious stones) allows you to combine these products with both a strict business image and an evening dress. They became the trend of the era, as they once did in the sixties.
Along with long earrings, chains are returning to fashion, which have firmly taken the place of the main trend of 2020. Different lengths and massiveness, they become part of earrings, the basis of bracelets, massive necklaces, chokers. Weaving anchor, armor, “bismarck”, “love” – there are options for every taste.
Statement jewellery works best with pastel garments and natural make-up, without competing with attention-grabbing elements.
What determines the prices of diamonds and gems?
Initially, the diamond industry was almost exclusively controlled by De Beers. This brand covered 85% of the global supply of diamonds for almost the entire 20th century. However, starting in the 1950s, diamonds began to be mined in Russia, Australia and Canada. Developments in these countries have effectively cut De Beers’ stake in half.
New entrants to the diamond market did not join De Beers’ monopoly policy. However, diamond prices are still maintained and controlled by several of the largest producers, and there is no doubt that their key interest is to avoid excessive fluctuations in the price of these precious gems. To some extent, all of them can control the polished market from the side of their supply – by reducing or increasing the share of diamonds offered for sale. The only thing they have no influence over is the huge quantities of stones sold prior. If end buyers suddenly decide to put their own diamonds up for sale, prices could plummet.
The rough diamond market is formed by the largest international diamond mining corporations: De Beers (Luxembourg), Rio Tinto (Great Britain) and ALROSA (Russia). If production (that is, “supply”) rises, the largest producers can step in and buy out or otherwise prevent oversupply to keep prices from falling.
Prices for the final product – cut diamonds themselves – are published monthly in the Rapaport Corp. price list Rapaport analysts research trends and prices around the world. Diamond traders in all countries follow the Rap List and use it as a standard to set their own prices. For the wholesale trade in diamonds, a report price list is also usually used, from the prices of which an agreed discount is made.
How are prices for precious and semi-precious stones formed?
In contrast to the history of the diamond market, prices for colored (precious and semi-precious) stones are more a function of the classic “supply and demand”. There are not many large mining companies in this market, and most of the manufacturers are much smaller in scale compared to the diamond giants. Typically, these organizations do not have sufficient funds to control production or demand. As a result, gem prices reflect their true value rather. More importantly, many gems are much rarer than diamonds, so a “crisis of overproduction” is impossible.
In general, the value of gems is determined by their rarity (uniqueness), beauty, durability and “portability”. The well-known 4Cs (color, cut, clarity and carat weight) are important for evaluating and comparing stones within the same category. When comparing different types of stones to each other, uniqueness and weight become equally important.
Some stones – for example red beryl (bixbit) or benitoite – don’t even have to be beautiful or particularly clean in order to be appreciated. These stones are no longer mined, and collectors value them precisely for their super high indicators of color and uniqueness. Even stones with a high proportion of inclusions are in high demand, especially if their weight exceeds 1 carat.
In some cases, gems are judged in a very strange way. For example, the asking price for an unusual stone or mineral from the mines of Myanmar can be as high as $ 5,000, as opposed to $ 10 for a similar stone on ebay.
Two-tone stones: two worlds in one piece
They seem too weird to be real. However, stones of more than one color are a reality and a true geological fortune. And also a great success for jewellery designers – after all, the “double personality” of a gem adds drama and additional meaning to the jewellery they create. This means that it helps their customers find unique jewellery that resonates with their own multi-layered inner world.
Nature did everything herself. Amethyst and citrine merged together (hence the name “ametrine”) in their common parent quartz rock, which was formed in the bowels of the earth under the influence of different temperatures. So the stone got two different colors. There was a bright meeting of two colors typical for ametrine – orange and violet. Since these minerals are often found to be quite large in size, usually between 10 and 30 carats, they are an excellent material for the so-called “statement” jewellery in the West – catchy and eye-catching unusual designs.
While truly exceptional gemstones will always feature superior clarity and uniformity of color, eccentric two-tone stones will captivate with their fantastic-ness, recalling the mysterious origins of our jewelry, which originated our planet.
Beautiful and comfortable: the secret of the perfect tiara
The famous phrase “beauty requires sacrifice” is pretty outdated today. Even the most desperate women of fashion are increasingly choosing from the other available exactly the thing in which you can spend the day with relative comfort.
But nevertheless, to the last it seemed to us that all this could not in any way relate to such a complicated decoration as a diadem for hair. After all, all these crowns are most likely heavy and uncomfortable!
How to wear
Thin tiaras with soft lines can be positioned directly above the forehead. If this is a wedding dress, then the veil is not worn in this position.
For hairstyles with bangs, a tiara looks great on the front of the head at the base of the bangs. Most often, the decoration is located in the middle of the crown. In this case, the diadem should be at an angle of 45 degrees to the head. This is the optimal tilt so that it is not too vertical or unnaturally tilted.
For a complex high hairstyle with a tiara, it is possible that the accessory encircles the hair gathered in a bun. Sufficiently flexible and not very bulky, the diadem fits nicely around the hairstyle. You can also decorate just the top center by securing the tiara with a comb.
In some cases, the tiara can even be placed on the back of the head, for example, in combination with a Greek hairstyle. If the diadem is a hoop, then it is worn like a hoop, hiding the ends with hair.
How to fix
Tiaras require special attention when attached to the hairdo. These are not hairpins, but hair ornaments, so they themselves need reliable fixing methods. The tiara studded with stones is also quite tangible in weight. So that the accessory does not move, does not fall, does not constrain movement and does not squeeze the head, it must be properly attached.
The simplest option is a tiara comb. It sticks in your hair like a regular comb. Some tiaras may have teeth at the ends to help fix the accessory. But there are not enough of them. Therefore, the most proven way is to use invisibility. They are crossed with the letter “X” and the tiara is fixed in several places. Invisibles should match in color with the shade of the hair, this will make them as invisible as possible.
The hoop tiara does not require special means to secure it. The main thing is that the size of the jewelry matches the volume of the head.
It is more difficult to attach a tiara to short hair. A hairstyle with smooth hair near the face looks beautiful. Thus, the diadem will occupy the central place, as it should be according to the status.
Which one to choose
Regardless of the circumstances under which a girl will wear a tiara, the main “secret of success” is the adornment’s compliance with the anatomical features of the future mistress. When fulfilling orders, it is important to take into account the size and wishes – how the girl plans to wear the jewelry, at what angle and with what hairstyle. If everything is done correctly, in the responses from the customers there are approximately the following phrases: “the diadem is light, I forget that it is there”, “does not press, does not press behind the ears, but it also does not fall off”, “does not cling to the hair, keeps strands”. All of this is extremely important!
Greek style headband
The “Greek” headband is put on from behind, that is, from the back of the head. The decorative elements on this hoop tiara are located at the temples, and it can be beautiful beads, stones or delicate curls. A girl can fix several strands around the metal strip – in fact, the accessory will shape and support the Greek hairstyle. By the way, this tiara is also suitable for those with short haircuts. The hair at the back of the head can be pulled over the metal band for a beautiful look.
Tiaras on the forehead
Today, one of the most popular are exquisite forehead jewelry. Including these are tiaras, at the base of which there is a rim that repeats the bend of the head. It is not required to attach such a tiara separately. A feature of this model is that it is convenient to put it on already in the finished hairstyle, without breaking anything. The main thing is that the decoration exactly matches the size and shape of the head.

Couples in love, getting married, hope that they do it once and for all. The bride and groom choose their wedding rings for a long time and thoughtfully – after all, they will wear these jewellery every day for several decades. In order for jewellery to retain its beauty for a long time, it must be handled with care. And first of all, shoot before performing any action that is likely to lead to damage: before sports training, cleaning, cooking. However, in everyday life it is impossible to foresee all dangerous situations, while some wedding rings cope with them better than others. What are these rings?
The resistance of jewellery to external influences depends on the metal, the type of stone, the type of its cutting and the method of setting. Let’s take a closer look at each of these factors.
Wedding ring metal
Pure gold is a soft metal, its Brinell hardness is 20 units, silver – 26, copper – 40. Accordingly, the more copper in the alloy, the stronger the finished product. Most of all copper is in 585 pink gold – 325 g per 1 kg of precious metal. In yellow gold of the same sample of copper, no more than 22.75%. The higher the grade, the lower the strength of the jewellery and the more scratches appear on it.
The situation is different with white gold. Copper is completely absent in it. To obtain the desired shade, either palladium (hardness – 52) or platinum (hardness – 50) is added to it. Accordingly, the strength of products made of white alloy is slightly higher than that of yellow or pink.
Rhodium-plated wedding rings should be singled out in a separate category. It not only gives the ring the perfect shine and color, but also prevents scratches. The hardness of rhodium reaches 101 points – this is the highest figure among precious metals.
Gold shows much less flexural strength than platinum, and a rhodium layer won’t help here. The prong setting is much more durable in the platinum version. Platinum teeth will securely hold the insert and will not bend if accidentally caught on clothing.
We will talk in detail about stones, their practical cuts and setting methods further.
Stones in a wedding ring
In addition to classic smooth wedding rings, jewellery stores offer jewellery with a variety of inserts: from inexpensive cubic zirconias to luxurious diamonds. Which stones are the least prone to scratches and chips?
Type of stone
Diamonds are out of competition! They are ideal for a wedding ring and are almost impossible to scratch. But this does not mean that nails can be hammered in with this stone. For all its hardness (10 out of 10 on the Mohs scale), diamond is a brittle mineral, with a sharp and strong impact, it can crack.
Rubies and sapphires are also not afraid of scratches. These stones are varieties of the mineral corundum, whose hardness on the Mohs scale is 9. Only one point lower, and the strength is 4 times less than that of diamond.
Another gemstone increasingly used in engagement rings is the emerald. He needs to be handled as carefully as possible. The hardness of the stone is 7.5-8 points, which is a good result. However, natural emeralds are often riddled with a network of cracks that are potential fault lines.
The hardness of cubic zirconia varies between 7.5-8.5. This is a good indicator, especially considering that in case of destruction of the stone, the installation of a new one will cost you a mere penny.
A durable wedding ring should contain stones without sharp corners. The pointed ends of the Pear, Marquis and Heart cuts are prone to shattering, even when it comes to diamonds. If you like these stones, make sure that the frame reliably protects the corners from breaking.
The choice of a rounded cut significantly reduces the likelihood of damage to the stone. Pay attention to the round and oval inserts. Not only are they safer, but these crystals give a brighter play of light thanks to a mathematically verified processing model.
Blind setting offers more security than any other type of fixation. The frame covers the stone from all sides and protects it from chipping. In this case, the top of the insert is located almost flush with the shank.
The channel setting is considered to be quite strong and is used for setting several small stones. For her, a channel is formed in the metal both along the entire length of the wedding ring, and only on its visible part. Stones are placed one after another in the channel, after which the edges of the recess are sealed.
There is an opinion that diamonds in a blind or channel setting do not play as brightly as in an open setting. In fact, most of the light that causes the stone to shine enters through its crown, reflects off the lower edges of the pavilion, and exits back, blinding your eyes.
Prong setting involves fixing the insert with separate teeth – four or six, less often – eight. If the prongs begin to cling to the clothes or you feel that the stone in the frame is slightly wobbling, take the wedding ring to the workshop, where the jeweler will squeeze the prongs.
In pavé setting, tiny stones are held in place only by the “droplets” of gold. Any impact on the ring can lead to shear of the miniature retainers and, as a result, to the loss of the stone. Always check the condition of the jewellery after accidental blows, even if they fell not on the inserts themselves, but on the “bare” metal. You may choose a wedding ring that takes into account all the protection factors or only some of them. Now you know what to look for when wearing more vulnerable jewellery, and you can extend their “life” for as long as you like.
Ice, autumn, peppery. What will you call a diamond
Trade names of diamonds
Lovers of diamonds, looking into jewellery stores, are likely to come across similar curious names for the stone:
salt and pepper
you can also find rustic
Let’s talk in more detail about cut diamonds with unusual descriptions that arouse genuine interest.
To begin with, it is customary to use several systems to assess the quality of diamonds: for example, the international (Gemological Institute of America GIA). But none of them contain the terms mentioned above. Why? The answer is simple. They are purely commercial and were created to promote sales.
What is behind the names?
First. These are really cut diamonds (in other words, diamonds). And, as a rule, natural unrefined stones are presented on the market.
Second. If such a diamond is submitted for examination to an independent laboratory, then it will be assigned very low color and clarity categories.
In conclusion: the seller really sells diamonds, there is no deception. At the same time, he describes their quality in other, more beautiful and romantic words.
Diamonds familiar to most people are transparent, colorless stones that play well in the light. However, not all diamonds mined are perfect. Most of them, on the contrary, are imperfect, and do not have a high degree of transparency or ideal color.
According to the Russian grading system, diamonds up to clarity group 7a inclusive (for stones over 0.30 carats) and up to 5th clarity group inclusive (for those less than 0.29 carats) are considered interesting for sale. According to the international system, this corresponds to estimates up to and including SI2. With the increase in the number of defects, it becomes more difficult for stones to find an owner: their “inner life” will be visible to the naked eye, even to a non-expert.
If we are talking about icy / salt and pepper / autumn / rustic and other similar cut diamonds, then inclusions clearly visible to the eye (their size, color, location) will affect a particular commercial name.
Parsing trade terms
What are “icy” diamonds? They are also called “milky”, “creamy” … These are stones that are full of internal characteristics, namely, light defects: clouds, cracks and other inclusions that make the stone opaque, whitish. The appearance of such diamonds really resembles water mixed with milk, or, for example, pieces of ice or snow. In this case, it all depends on the imagination of the seller and the buyer.
Salt and pepper diamonds
Salt and pepper is one of the most popular varieties today. These are stones in which there is a large number of light and dark, black characteristics, which create the visual effect of mixed salt and pepper. Such stones are often cut not in our usual round shape with 57 facets, but make a simpler cut “rose”, flat on one side and convex with drawing on the other.
Autumn and rustic diamonds
“Autumn” diamonds are stones that look like fallen leaves. In addition to a set of various cracks and inclusions, they are characterized by a yellow, greenish or brownish color visible from the top.
Rustic is a collective term often referred to as opaque diamonds. They can be of different colors with different pronounced inclusions. The main thing is that all these “guests” seriously affect the transparency and color of the stone.
What interferes with transparency
What are the main types of internal inclusions found in such natural diamonds? These are solid mineral inclusions of various colors: black – sulfides or ilmenite, green – olivine or diopside, red – garnet, colorless – diamond in diamond. Various cracks, structural features, and more are also possible.
Where is the border when a stone from one trade category falls into another? Are these names correct?
We can say for sure: there are no strict laws in the use of terms, since they are created from the point of view of marketing, not science or strict classifications. In other words, any name – “milky”, “icy”, “creamy”, “matte”, “rustic”, “galactic” and so on – can be used to denote the appearance as a subjective opinion of the seller.
Are these stones of bad quality? – I am often asked. If we give a quality assessment in an independent laboratory, then yes, these stones will be assigned extremely low characteristics.
However, to someone just such a special diamond will seem much more interesting. First, the owner will be able to feel different from everyone else. A product with unusual designs will attract attention and raise a lot of questions. Secondly, the buyer will pay much less for his “best friend”.
New popular stones are fresh ideas and opportunities for creativity and design. Especially where an unusual palette is needed, a subdued shine, a mesmerizing inner life of stones, and affordable prices. Therefore, such diamonds have a right to exist.
Take or not to take?
It should be understood that a diamond that the seller describes as a stone with “special charm” will not have high transparency. His stormy “inner life” interferes with the full inner reflection of the rays of light in him. Reflections that create the very play of the diamond for which he became famous. However, in such stones, the surface can often be well polished, and the shine emanating from the edges will increase.
We draw a conclusion. If the issue of play and sparkle is a matter of principle for you, such amusing stones are hardly your story.
And a small detail to finish. Any diamonds require careful treatment, and such stones in particular. The presence of a considerable number of the same cracks can affect the integrity of the “best friend”, ruining your mood.
First earrings: when to pierce ears, how to pierce, which ones are safe
Often mothers’ comments:
– For the first earrings for a little girl – only gold!
– We pierced our ears with a pistol, did not have time to get scared.
– We must do it until one year old – so that later I don’t even remember
Surprisingly, it would seem that a narrow topic at the junction of the medical, cosmetology and jewellery spheres – ear piercing – causes a lot of unceasing controversy, in which people often defend completely opposite points of view. What metal should the first earrings be for children (and not only), pierce with a gun or a needle, how early to do this? We interviewed specialists and share their answers with you.
Baby earrings: a look from the other side
We all regularly meet babies in a stroller, with a pacifier in their mouths, and – with cute earrings in their ears. To many, this seems charming – a small woman is growing.
To begin with, not all professional piercing masters generally agree to pierce children. They believe that for the age of up to 3 years (and sometimes up to 6-8) this is too serious manipulation, a small child is not yet able to control himself or imagine the consequences of this step. What is there – just to understand what these strangers are doing with him now. The masters themselves, to whom the children were brought “for the procedure”, recall with a shudder the babies choking in hysterics and do not seek to repeat this experience.
According to professionals, in our society, early ear piercing is traditionally considered the norm, and many simply cannot imagine a girl without earrings. “Who needs it? The child or the parents? ”, The specialist urges to think. Given the current trend towards treating a child as an individual with his own feelings and needs, and the understanding that the horror experienced in childhood can remind of itself with problems later, such remarks sound at least reasonable.
Where and how to pierce ears for children and adults
There are several good reasons why you should avoid places that offer you the gun puncture method, and here’s why. Piercing guns cannot be sterilized. This means that there is a very high risk of cross-infection with diseases such as HIV, AIDS, hepatitis. In addition, piercing guns tear tissue rather than piercing it. This is not noticeable, because the puncture occurs according to the principle of a jackhammer: with tremendous impact force and speed using a blunt shackle. Such a wound often heals extremely poorly, with the formation of scars. And sometimes it doesn’t heal at all.
According to the master, punctures must be made with a special needle. Piercing needles are always a disposable tool that craftsmen never skimp on. They are sterile – the master opens them in front of the client. These needles have a mirror coating, three-dimensional laser sharpening and a perfect surface – in the hands of a professional they are the safest and most comfortable tool.
At what age should you have your ears pierced?
First, it is very difficult for young children to explain how to handle a fresh wound. Instinctively, children do not allow to touch the place that hurts, so it becomes difficult to care for punctures. Secondly, due to the fact that children often touch the punctures with dirty hands, there is a high risk of infection of the punctures. Parents often do not have the ability to control this moment constantly.
And, finally, the third – a point that, in our experience, few people think about. With age, the ears grow and change their size and shape, which means that punctures made in infancy may turn out to be completely asymmetrical when the child grows up.
On his page in the section with information, the piercing master warns: children who are under 18 years old will definitely need a parent or official guardian to go to the piercing salon, who will have to fill out a consent form with the procedure.
What earrings to insert into the ears after a piercing, and where to find them?
What kind of metal should be used so that healing is as gentle and quick as possible? Isn’t it “noble” – gold, silver, or at least medical steel?
Currently, the safest material for punctures is implantable titanium. It does not contain nickel, copper, cobalt and other toxic impurities such as surgical steel, gold or silver.
But it is not enough just to choose the “right” metal, there are other safety requirements for the first earrings for small and adults. Jewelry that will be installed in a fresh puncture must have an ideal polish and optimal length so that the jewelry does not squeeze the wound. They should be lightweight and free of jags, locks and other parts that can provoke the adornment to cling.
The main recommendation is to choose adequate jewellery, the masters say. Very cheap jewellery and silver can cause allergic reactions and inflammation even in fully formed punctures, jewelry that is too massive and heavy can stretch the puncture, and jewellery with tenacious parts is dangerous because they are easy to catch and severely injure, and sometimes even tear the earlobe.
