Your Ear, Your Jewellery Canvas
WHAT EXACTLY IS A FINE PIERCING?
A fine piercing is a piercing earring crafted from a minimum of 14K gold that may feature precious stones like diamonds, rubies, emeralds, or sapphires. What makes fine piercings truly unique is the ability to get pierced with the very jewellery piece you intend to wear. This eliminates the need for an initial piercing with a standard stud and later replacing it, streamlining the process into a single, seamless experience. Fine piercings empower you to effortlessly style and transform your ear aesthetics without the hassle of waiting to change your earring.
If you choose a stud piercing, we employ a quick and nearly painless process. We first pierce your ear with a needle, followed by inserting the stud's back through the back of your ear and seamlessly pushing in the front. Our approach is the result of consulting with some of London's leading piercers, leading us to design piercings with a convenient push-back mechanism instead of a screw-on one. This not only expedites the piercing process but also ensures a secure fit, with the added flexibility of adjusting the back bar for a snugger fit after your ear has healed.
When it comes to hoop piercings, our approach prioritises both safety and comfort. We highly recommend using 8mm or 10mm hoops for your piercing to allow ample space for any potential swelling during the healing process. Our commitment to your well-being extends to the design of our hoops, ensuring they are of the right weight to avoid adding unnecessary stress to your ear. Moreover, we assess your ear's unique physical characteristics in person to select the most suitable hoop size for you. Our process involves using needles for the initial piercing, and then carefully threading the hoop through, ensuring a personalised and safe experience tailored to your individual needs.
