More ear piercings mean more earrings! Layering earrings is a great look and is practical enough to be worn day and night.
There are so many ways to get your ears adorned that it’s worth doing some research first beforehand. Search for pictures of piercings and look at your ear shape to work out what you want and where.
If these don’t mean much then take a look below and get an aural education…
What to expect
The lobe and tragus are fleshy parts of the ear and so you can expect shorter healing time. The cartilage which the ear is made out of has a smaller blood supply so healing is slower.
The piercing will be made and a starter piece of jewellery thread through. This piece is sterile and non-reactive and should be kept in for as long as your piercer advises.
For the slower healing cartilage this healing time may be around 13 weeks - I had my daith pierced this year and it took about 4 months to be normal - I have to be honest it hurt quite a bit! But the pain was short-lived and it means I can wear a whole range of new earrings which I love (the daith piercing is also supposed to help migraine sufferers as its on a pressure point). Definitely go to an expert piercer - they will then give you advice and after-care should you need it - and help youo put new earrings in when the time comes.
What to wear
Just because you have got a piercing for wearing some exciting new pieces of jewellery (think the Lee Renee Smile Diamond Single Slider Earring) doesn’t unfortunately make it any less of a break in the skin. This means you need to think about your ears and how to protect your new piercing so you can enjoy it for as long as you like!
It’s an investment in you that is worth protecting. Once you have followed the advice for the healing period, you can now start enjoying it with our recommended pieces below!
The trend at the moment is to layer earrings across the ear – much like the trend for layering necklaces. The pieces in the new Positive Vibes collection were designed with this in mind and are bang on the geometric trend too.
