After the 6-week period, what kind of earrings should I wear?
For the first year after your piercing we recommend 14k/18k/22k gold, platinum or medical-grade earrings. We carry a full line of earrings that have been specifically chosen for the new earring wearer in diamonds and cubic zirconia.
During the first year after your piercing avoid gold plate, gold vermeil, gold filled, sterling silver, 10k gold, stainless steel, brass and all costume jewelry as they may contain nickel as the "filler" metal. The risk of developing a nickel allergy is at its greatest during the first year after a piercing, therefore it is important to limit exposure to nickel at this time.
