Choosing the right body jewelry earrings to suit you can be difficult. It is easy to be tempted to just purchase the first ones that you see. However, after you have gone to the trouble of having a piercing wouldn’t it be a good idea to select the best earrings to show off the piercing?

There are a few things that you need to keep in mind when you are shopping for earrings and here you will find out everything that you need to know.

Choosing Good Body Jewelry Earrings

There are so many different earring designs available to choose from these days. Long gone are the days when studs were the only body jewelry that was worn. Now you have cartilage earrings, thread earrings, designer earrings and even clip on earrings. It all depends upon which type of piercing you have as to which earrings you should purchase.

The main thing to remember is that if you are just having your ears pierced for the first time then you need to avoid certain materials. Whilst they may look great, gold earrings can cause a reaction in some people and so they are best avoided until your piercing has healed. Instead it would be a better option to choose titanium or bioplast earrings. Once the piercing has healed then you can choose any material you wish, but generally it is better to start off with the materials mentioned to avoid any potential problems.

If you have a cartilage piercing then you may want to opt for a simple blue gem bioplast stud. You can purchase them in a number of shapes from a simple circular stud to a star shaped or even a dragon shaped earring. Or you could opt for body jewelry earrings that will help you to really stand out. Industrial barbells are a popular choice for cartilage piercings and they really do look unique.

The earrings that you end up with will also obviously depend upon your age. Younger people would likely prefer designer earrings. There is a wide selection available to young girls and so you should not have trouble finding something to suit them. If you are on the lookout for something a little more sophisticated then simple designs are generally better.

Overall there are so many different types of body jewelry earrings to choose from. Cubic zirconia earrings will be cheaper to purchase but if you do choose them make sure that you choose bioplast or surgical steel for best results!

Plug Body Jewelry

Plug Body Jewelry

Plugs are often associated with earrings because they are worn in earlobe piercings when the piercing is stretched. In fact, all stretched piercings, no matter where they are, are adorned with plugs. Plugs are ideal when they fit the piercing comfortably. While there are standard lengths and gauges, they are often custom made as per specifications.

You can get solid or hollow plugs and these come in almost all the material that is used for body jewelry. You can expect to find acrylic, steel, titanium, organic materials, glass, silicone, or niobium. Size also ranges widely starting at 10 gauge, although you can get smaller sizes as well. The plug has flared or threaded ends or even rubber or silicone o-rings to hold it in place.

In the single domed plug, one side is flared while the other has an o-ring whereas in the double domed, both ends are flared. The double domed plug is not used in stretching the piercing.

Another type of plug is the tube, which is hollow and uses an o-ring to keep it in place. The eyelet plug is also hollow but has flares at the ends. You will come across single flared eyelet and double flared eyelet. There threaded tunnel plugs that are hollow as well as flared on one end while the other end is threaded so that a piece can be threaded in to keep the plug in place in the piercing.

The plugs, earlets and tunnels are commonly used in ear lobe. But you an also wear them in stretched septum piercings and labret piercing.
