When it comes to buying body jewelry online, there are a myriad of online shops to choose from.
If you’ve ever bought piercing jewelry online or considered it, you’ve most likely heard of Body Candy. Afterall, they are one of the most popular online body jewelry stores.
The question is does Body Candy’s popularity reflect upon the quality of their jewelry and their services? Find out by reading my Body Candy body jewelry review.
If you are thinking about purchasing something from BodyCandy for the first time, it’s best you know what exactly your paying for before you go ahead and splash out!
How’s the Selection of Jewelry?
I would say that Body Candy’s strongest point is their large selection of jewelry.
Whatever it is you are looking for, Body Candy have got it. You will find jewelry in any material you could possibly need. They do jewelry for every single type of piercing, in all different shapes, sizes and colours.
So, whatever your flavour, I can pretty much guarantee you that Body Candy will stock something you like.
They even do customized jewelry, so you can get a belly bar, earrings or tongue bar with your name on it!
Not only do they have a large selection of jewelry, they also have some exquisite designs. I must say I am bedazzled by some of the belly bars.
You’ll have go and look for yourself, I’d be here for the next 4 months if I was to discuss all the different types of jewelry on the site!
Is the jewelry good quality?
The metal jewelry, such as stainless steel and titanium, are of high quality and I have had absolutely no issues with them what so ever.
The titanium belly bars and Captive Bead Rings I ordered from this site have lasted me months now. The only problem I’ve had is I lost the ball on one of them (silly me!).
As I said though, the quality does depend on the material. Not all of the jewelry sold on Body Candy meets as high as quality standard as the titanium and steel.
In fact, I would strongly advise you to not even bother wasting your money on any of the cheap or acrylic jewelry!
If you do end up buying acrylic jewelry from this site, you will find out for your self that it is very low quality and breaks extremely easily.
This seems to particularly effect the curved barbells, such as belly bars and banana barbells.
So, if you do order jewelry from Body Candy, I will advise you to stick to their titanium range. Steel is second best though. Whatever you do, don’t order an acrylic belly bar!
Note: I have yet to try out the other materials such as BioFlex. I will update this article when I do.
Price of the jewelry – value for your money?
When we shop online, one of the most important aspects of our experience with any online store is value for money.
Do you actually get what you pay for?
If you are buying titanium then yes, go ahead and buy as much titanium jewelry as you desire! You won’t be let down as you do get what you pay for.
With the Steel jewelry, you do get what you pay for. The steel is really nothing special though. It’s all good when you first receive it but I find that it is quick to show it’s wear and tear. The metal gets discoloured and scratched easily. This is not good for the piercing itself either.
If it is acrylic jewelry you are buying, well… Just don’t. You’re better off not wasting your money on Body Candy’s acrylic jewelry.
One thing I love about Body Candy is that they offer discounts all the time.
Body Candy’s customer service. That’s one thing that many people have a very strong opinion on.
Some people had positive experiences and have no complaints, whereas others had an awful time attempting to negotiate with them!
Personally, I have had no reason to get involved customer service yet. Although this is a good thing on their part – I have had no problems with shipping, delivery or the items themselves so no need to complain.
Common Complaints About Customer Service
From what I’ve discovered, Body Candy frequently get people’s orders wrong and customer service refuses to change it unless it is still in the little baggy it came in. This seems stupid – how can you tell if you are happy with your jewelry while it is still in it’s packaging?
I’ve even heard of cases where they’ve gotten the order completely wrong and won’t even entertain the idea of a refund or replacement. Even if the item was broken when it arrived!
As I said, these are the words of other people, not myself. I cannot vouch for the truth in what they said.
Some of the Negative Reviews I Found:
Here I have taken some screenshots of some actual reviews from the customers of Body Candy.
These reviews are from SiteJabber.
Don’t worry, Body Candy is not all bad. Not at all. I found plenty of very positive reviews for Body Candy. This website clearly has some very loyal and dedicated customers!
Body Candy is one of the most popular websites for buying body jewelry online.
This would be due to their massive selection of gorgeous and reasonably priced jewelry. The fact that they offer frequent discounts also works to their advantage.
If you decide to purchase something from Body Candy, just take my advice and do not buy anything made from acrylic. Every other material is fine though.
I would recommend titanium but I’ve heard that their BioFlex, gold and silver are good quality too.
A word of warning: Check your order is correct before you take it out of the little plastic baggy it comes in. Once you have removed it from the baggy, you are stuck with it, whether you like it or not!
