Submitter Comment: I changed my nose ring from a regular silver hoop to this blue hoop. After about a day I noticed my nose becoming very sore and tender. When I tried to move the hoop, it got stuck and hurt really badly. I found out after I got it out that it was just as cheap as I thought it was, the paint on it had peeled off and got stuck in my hole.
What’s awful: Cheap, low-quality jewelry. painted, not anodized. I don’t even know what kind of metal it’s made of, and I couldn’t find the answer online. I assume it’s not the best quality though.
How it can be fixed: Do not buy cheap jewelry from Hot Topic or Spencers Gifts.
I work at Hot Topic. I can confirm this.
