earrings are ideal to wear while your lobe or cartilage
piercing is healing. You shouldn't change your earrings before your
piercing is fully healed. Once you're properly healed, you can
start to swap out the earring you choose to adorn it with.
Statement earrings are designed to pack a powerful punch, and
step your outfit up to the next level. From drop
earrings destined to dazzle alongside an evening ensemble, to
earrings perfect for causing a stir on date night.
Everyday earrings can add a little boost of confidence to your
daily life. You can pair timeless diamond
jewellery with your most subtle outfits to add some sparkle.
You can always opt to add some colour to your day with
gemstones, with the alluring pull of earring
charms. For those who want to experience the fun of stacking
earrings, but prefer just a lobe piercing, try experimenting with
cuffs. These on-trend cuffs slide onto the outer edge of your
ear. You can even wear more than one at a time for a truly unique
effect. However you choose to style your lobe or cartilage
piercings, you'll find limitless combinations with our ranges.
How Long Does A Piercing Take to Heal?
Cartilage piercings take longer to heal than soft-tissue
piercings, and this can range from 6 to 12 months. You may think
your cartilage piercing is healed before it is. This is because
they heal from the skin, inwards. Don't worry if your cartilage
piercing starts secreting fluid - this is normal. All piercings are
technically wounds. They need to be properly cared for to heal
Caring For Your New Piercing
Caring for a cartilage piercing is essential to helping it heal
as properly as possible. At your appointment, we will provide
piercing aftercare information to help you. For an ear piercing
the only cleanser you need is Antibacterial Cleansing Saline
Solution. This salty solution can help to flush out your cartilage
piercing, remove any discharge, and help to keep it clean. You
should use this twice a day, morning and night, every day for the
duration of your healing. Keep your jewellery in for the duration
of your healing time.
Once your cartilage piercing has healed, you can help to keep it
free from infection and in the best condition possible.
Cleaning your earrings is an important step to this process.
Ensure you handle them with clean hands when placing them on your
ear, and storing them in a clean jewellery
box to keep them safe.
Types of Piercings
Cartilage piercings aren't the only way to add a touch of
glamour to your ears. There are many types of piercings to slip
jewellery through - for dressing up an everyday outfit, or to
complement a full-glam evening look.
The first and most common type of piercing is the earlobe. The
reason people start at the ear lobe is because it is the fleshiest
part of the ear. The classic lobe position is often called the
lower lobe piercing thanks to the many other options you
can choose from. You can adorn this look with lower lobe
earrings designed to fit flawlessly with this style.
Upper lobe piercings are a twist on the classic lobe piercing.
It sits slightly higher than the classic lobe look, and nearer the
face, to let your upper lobe
earrings dazzle in view. Still positioned in the fleshy part of
the ear lobe, it is an easy type of ear piercing to perform as it
does not require piercing through cartilage.
Higher lobe piercings, which sit further up the ear
lobe, towards the outer edge of the ear, are another way to update
your piercing look. Selecting the ideal higher
lobe earrings for this stunning look is essential to show off
your new additions. Adding one or two piercings further up your
lobe can easily transform your look to a trendy one bound to draw
