You all hear me talk about implant-grade body jewellery, and how not all pieces of jewellery are made equally. I also talk a lot about surface finish and mirror polish (and sometimes my portfolio photos have me or my camera reflected in the jewellery!). However, it can be really difficult at first glance to see the difference between a $2 piece of jewellery or a $100 one, and that can be confusing! Here is a fabulous example showing the difference between high polish, implant grade body jewellery and the lower quality pieces of jewellery.
