3 - Why does Tribalectic offer so many brands of jewelry in many of the same styles?

Here at Tribalectic we've taken the time to sort through all of the body jewelry on the market to bring you the best jewelry at the best prices. We recognize that not everyone's budget is the same, and so we've decided to offer body jewelry from both high end and lower end manufacturers. The differences in price result from various factors. Some body jewelry is mass-produced and externally threaded, some is made in smaller batches which may be externally threaded up to 10ga and internally threaded at 8ga and larger. Still other manufacturer's jewelry is all internally threaded, hand-made, and hand-polished to a superb finish. To learn more about the various manufacturers we work with check out each manufacturer's bio page.
