If you look around a little, you’ll see plenty of other stores with much better prices than Piercing Pagoda.
So, why is their jewelry so expensive? The biggest reason is the overhead cost of their brick-and-mortar stores.
When you buy a pair of earrings, you’re also paying for rent, utilities, insurance, inventory, maintenance, and the employee who gives “free” ear piercings.
Today’s online retailers don’t have those costs.
Reviews and quality
Because Piercing Pagoda is a nationwide franchise, the reviews are going to vary wildly.
There are plenty of people thrilled with their purchase. Piercing Pagoda holds a special place in their heart for giving them a memorable childhood birthday or a weekend with friends they’ll never forget.
On the other hand, several customers got angry because of poor customer service, shady selling practices, or low-quality items.
With hundreds of different stores, everyone will have a different experience, so my recommendation is to check your local store reviews if you’re thinking of shopping there.
Coupons and deals
If you’re thinking about buying from Piercing Pagoda, it’s a good idea to check available deals.
Unlike a lot of other jewelry stores, there’s almost always an active offer you can either take with you or use to place an order online.
Be sure to check the website within a day or so before making your purchase since many coupons are limited or expire within a short time frame.
Our final word on Piercing Pagoda jewelry
If you're thinking about getting your ears pierced, few places have the brand recognition of Piercing Pagoda.
When it comes to their jewelry, though, you might want to do some research before buying something they have in stock just because it catches your eye.
Piercing Pagoda sells a huge variety of jewelry. Just beware that most of their pieces are the minimum possible, legally speaking, to be sold as fine jewelry.
For most pieces—like rings, necklaces, bracelets, and chains—you’ll almost certainly find a better deal elsewhere and a piece made from long-lasting solid metal to boot.
But for earrings and body jewelry, Piercing Pagoda’s selection and range of styles are hard to beat.
