I design all kinds of engagement rings for my customers. I’m happy to do a traditional solitaire, but I’ve also done mixed-metal stacking rings ….

Susan’s redesigned engagement ring. Click for more information.

Heather’s engagement ring. Click for more information.

… and a white-sapphire ring that looks very different from a conventional engagement ring.

Lori’s engagement ring. Click for more information.

Basically, I would do nearly anything so that you have a ring you love. But I won’t do this.

Yeah, if you want to have a finger piercing, I’m afraid you’ll have to find a different jeweler. This isn’t in my area of expertise! Also I don’t have medical-malpractice insurance. Anyway, thanks to Coool-Stuff for alerting me to this style.

  4. ack! needs an alert for the squeamish!

    Your rings, OTOH, are divine.

    Oh man, I didn’t expect to see THAT when I clicked on to this post. Why would someone want that? It’s super ugly…just don’t know why anyone would think that this was a good idea..

  6. Megan Mae says:

    Yipes! Well, at least you can feel comforted knowing that it probably wouldn’t last long. Dermal piercings often get rejected by the body, if not right away, then eventually.

  7. K-Line says:

    Eeeek! I find the symbolism troubling. And the opportunity for infection.

  8. Amanda says:

    Ummm…Ouch!!!!!

  9. Eli says:

    That looks as if it would be constantly painful! no thank you. Maybe they need a YOLO pair of rings to match?

    Looks like photo shop to me. Not to mention that would NEVER heal right.

  12. It’s funny, my anti-spam word for this comment is “bewilder.” I was gonna go with: Oh. My. Word. But “bewilder” works, too :P

  13. stacy says:

    Oh, I saw this today and was going to share it with you! But, you see/read EVERYTHING, so you didn’t need my help to point it out. This is soooo gross! Ouch. I think it’s only appropriate that my anti-spam word is “disturbia.”

  14. sulky kitten says:

    Your designs are stunning – that finger piercing is gross! I feel lightheaded just looking at it. Get me some smelling salts.

  15. liz says:

    Symbolically, this is waaaaaay problematic. Practically, it is worse. “This bad idea oozes badness from every pore.”

  16. Alice Olive says:

    Ouch! I had to rush over that image. Ouch, ouch, ouch.

  17. Kait says:

    That is just nasty.

  18. Jean says:

    Ummmm….yeah. I’ll pass, thanks. Now YOUR designs?? Definitely a go.

  19. No. Just no. It looks gross and unsanitary. I think it made me a little sick to my stomach.

  20. Jill says:

    I just find that repellant!

  21. Lara says:

    It looks kinda photoshopped but NO doubt someone’s done it.

    That’s an infection waiting to happen. I don’t understand what the extra loop/ball near the 2nd knuckle is for. Maybe to stabilize it from ripping out of your skin?
    GROSS.

  22. Hahaha, wow. You know, I wouldn’t be surprised if variations of this have actually been done on people…. I love unconventional ideas, but that is pretty gross!!

  23. Kathy says:

    Awww, cum on!!! Never is the new what? Promise me when I get engaged you’ll arrange to make this happen!

    gotta say, tho I am not a fan of engagement rings generally, I LOVE that one for lori, really dark and mysterious feeling.
    as a fan of piercing, I gotta say I am NOT a fan of the finger piercing– seems really difficult to heal since you bend that part of your body all the time and it is hard to keep clean. I mean, power to whoever can rock it, tho

    Yikes. People will literally pierce anything they can, huh?

    You won’t believe how much I cringed when I saw that photo. For someone who rarely has nightmares, I think I’m going to have one tonight after see that!
