What Makes Piercing Earrings Unique?

Q: When you hear the term “piercing earrings”, what does it mean?

A: Unlike regular earrings for pierced ears, piercing earrings are specially-designed earrings that have a sharp tip to pierce earlobes and the outer ear cartilage.

Not all piercing earrings are alike. Inverness piercing earrings feature ultra-thin piercing posts with an extra-sharp piercing tip that glides easily through the earlobe for a smooth, gentle piercing. Our piercing earrings are specially-designed to be used with our hand-pressured piercing instrument. Each Inverness piercing earring is packaged in a sterile, tamper-resistant cartridge to guard against exposure to potential contaminants prior to piercing.

Inverness piercing earrings are made with the finest quality hypoallergenic metals available including 14KT gold, 24KT gold plate, medical grade stainless steel, and medical grade titanium.

Since nickel is used to strengthen many metal alloys, ALL Inverness piercing earrings meet the most stringent global standards for nickel release requirements (European Union Nickel Release Directive No. 1907/2006, REACH Annex XVII). Our surgical grade titanium earrings are 100% nickel-free, providing maximum peace of mind for people with known nickel allergies.

Since you’ll be wearing your piercing earrings for the entire 6 or 12 weeks it takes for a new piercing to heal, our piercings earrings come in a range beautiful styles including classic CZs and crystals and fun shapes like flowers and butterflies.
