What kind of end are your nose ring? L shape? Hoop?
All our nose rings are an adjustable hoop you can tighten by pushing the ends together
Will your brass nose rings tarnish?
Because they are made of brass they can tarnish over time just like any jewelry that is not purely made of silver or gold. Many factors contribute to how long until it may tarnish such as wear, if you wear it in the shower, and even climate from where you are located.
Can I wear my nose ring in the shower?
Though we have had customers wear their nose ring weeks or months in the shower and not taking it off whatsoever we do not recommend this. Simply taking it off before showering can keep your nose ring to last longer.
How can I prevent my brass nose rings from tarnishing?
We recommend using a clear sealant such as clear nail polish. We really recommend the brand jewelry shield which is perfect for those with skin sensitivity. Simply coat your nose ring with a layer of sealant and let it dry for 20 minutes and your good to go! Please read all ingredients before applying.
What size are your nose rings?
All of our nose rings are 20 gauge
About the Bindi
The bindi is a fashionable, beautiful, type sticker that is worn between the eyebrows; originating from South Asian cultures. The bindi has evolved from a red powder to beautiful jewels that is appreciated by cultures around the world. The bindi is said to retain energy and strengthen concentration. It represents the third eye.
We offer the most luxurious packaged and designed bindis. With a variety of gold, silver, gold and silver, red, multi-colored, and all colored pack of bindis in all sizes, with custom slanted tweezers for precise placement, and customized bindi adhesive for reuse; we literally offer the perfect pack of bindis which had us featured in Forbes India and Yahoo News.
All bindis are handmade in India
Is it cultural appropriation to wear bindis?
Though bindis can be more controversial to wear please understand that bindis have an important and significant meaning in the Indian culture. It represents your third eye and is said to retain energy and concentration. This come from being placed on a vein between your eyebrows which is said to unlease special senses. Most Indians love seeing people of other cultures embracing their culture but please do your research and understand and respect the meaning behind it. Please don't just wear a bindi because you think it looks “cool” without knowing the meaning whatsoever. For example a plain red dot bindi (we do not carry) represents someone who is married so by being unmarried wearing a red dot bindi, it may looked down upon.
The bindi is made of a sticker like material. Gently peel off the bindi from the sheet. The best way to do this without damaging the bindi is to use our custom tweezers. After carefully peeling off the bindi simply place in desired area, usually between the eyebrows (the third eye).
You can reuse your bindi many times especially now with our custom bindi adhesive which is also included in your bindi packaging! It is suggested to always put the bindi back onto the sheet and back into the luxury box after usage. When your bindi is losing adhesive and not sticking, use our custom glue and dab a small bit on the bindi and place where desired. Please check ingredients of eyelash glue to prevent skin allergies.
