Seriously, it's like leveling up as a bling addict - more places on my body to decorate!

I started out getting two more holes added to my ears for my birthday, back in February. I went to a place called Venus by Maria Tash, because my best friend's mom got her nose pierced there (what can I say? my best friend's mom is cooler than I am), and she recommended it highly. They had a nifty selection of studs, so I wound up getting two tiny stars - 5-pointed and 8-pointed - to wear alongside my diamond studs (H, SI2, .73 points).

4 months later, my ears are finally sufficiently healed that I can swap my earrings around ... though, apparently, I shouldn't get too enthusiastic, as I apparently irritated the cartilage by trying too many variations. So I went back to Venus by Maria Tash, fearing a nickel allergy, only to be told it probably wasn't the case (piercer described a nickel allergy as the flesh trying to pull away from the post - grody!), but that I should just LEAVE IT BE. Being that I'd desperately tried first silver, and then yellow gold, and was wearing an unflatteringly large stud in that hole, I succumbed to my weaker impulses, and got new studs put in on the spot - teeny little 3 mm rubies on nickel-free, palladium white gold posts (hey, better safe than sorry).

I am to leave these alone for a month, but when they heal, I'll be back to show off my pretty new yellow gold and sapphire set - .25 sapphire studs, followed by milgrained sapphire-studded huggies, followed by 2.5 carat natural unheated oval sapphire dangles. Mmm ....

In the meantime, wanna tempt me to further misbehavior by showing me yours? Bring me your studs, your hoops, your dangles, your graduated pairings yearning to be shown off!

Beautiful collection Circe! I've been thinking about getting a second hole and since I'm in the NYC area, the recommendation helps! :))

How cool! Those are beautiful! My youngest son is 3 and likes to grab at my ears--yikes :o ! I think in another year I'll be able to wear earrings again.

Thanks! I recommend them highly - I went to the B'way location and got mine done by Ashly, for what it's worth. I hear all their people are great, but she was really nice, patient with my dithering over exact placement, and v. professional. Also, great aftercare!

Thanks, Baby Nurse, Amy, April!

Aw, nobody else wants to post pics? I warn you, I will bump this thread like it's wandered into the gaming section of the state fair ....

I would post pics if I had nicer earrings, lol. I do have two sets of pearl studs.... aaaand that's about it for 'nice' earrings. everything else is of the cheapie variety. I have an odd placement of piercings though, three on each ear, 3 in the lobe on the right, but on the left I have two in the lobe and one higher up on the cartilage. weird, i know, but my sister and I did it together, kind of our 'thing' I guess you could say, lol :rodent:

Love the look Circe, particularly the little stars. Is it 0.73 each for the big studs or ctw?

Ok Ditto.... Luckily I have a 0.82ctw pair for for my lobes on their way (waiting for their settings) and a 0.25ctw pair for the next ones up and then I will make up some teeny little 0.10ctw for the last piercings. SO EXCITED ABOUT SPARKLY ALL OVER EARS!

Very keen to see other people ear bling photos!

I'm late in this topic but I would like to up it to see if there are other girls with multiple pierced ears.

Circe.... your choice of earrings is gorgeous!

I have 6 in each ear (some in different locations). Since it's dark, late, and my earrings are in desperate need of a cleaning, I will try and clean them and take a pic tomorrow, since I've been meaning to for ages.

Ok, just made FI take some ear pics because THEY'RE HERE! Woop!

From bottom to top 0.82ctw in 14ctw whiteflash martinis, 0.25ctw 14ctw ready set go white gold whiteflash martinis, 0.10ctw 4 claw babies, 0.10ctw 4 claw baby studs (18ct white gold).

Not a great pic really, I swear these looks much more impressive in person. Also I have big lobes and crooked ear piercings, don't judge me!

If you're still having problems, you can try industrial grade stainless steel. Not glamorous, I know, but it's one of the least hyperallergenic (also is Titanium). Also, YES, leave the earrings alone and DON'T turn them. This can cause more irritation...plus don't use hydrogen peroxide bc that kills the good bacteria along side the bad.

I got my upper ear pierced three months ago and it was healing nicely and so had a professional piercer switch it to a ring (all professionally sterilized, etc) and now it's all irritated and swollen because the ring keeps moving around. (not sure if I should switch it back to a barbell or leave it in!) I read that it's good to keep the original studs in as long as possible...I didn't listen and am paying the price.

Sea salt soaks are suppose to help the healing process...might want to try that once a day? That is my last hope before going back to a dull barbell. lol
