Questions About Stud Earrings?
What are stud earrings?
Studs are the most simple and understated style of earrings. They are elegant and really emphasise the gemstone. A decorative or plain 4 or 6 claw setting usually holds the gemstone against the front of the earlobe, and a small post passes through the hole and connects to a backing on the other side of the lobe to hold the earring in place. At Secrets Shhh, we have an extensive collection of stud earrings in sterling silver, or yellow, white or rose gold. Depending on your tastes and your budget, your studs can feature our lab grown diamond simulants or colour gemstone simulants. Secrets Shhh offers a choice of shapes, cuts, colour and carat weight, as well as elegant cultured freshwater pearl studs. These minimalist earrings can elevate any look with a subtle touch of glamour and luxury. Stud earrings are popular for both everyday wear and formal sparkle.
How do you remove stud earrings?
After getting your ears pierced, it is recommended that you leave your stud earrings in for 6 weeks before removing them. This allows the piercing to firm up, without healing over the hole itself, and protects against infection. After this time, you can remove your earrings and change them for others whenever it suits you. Firstly, make sure that your hair is out of the way and that your hands are clean. It may help to look in a mirror while removing your studs so that you can see what your hands are doing. Hold the front part of the stud between your thumb and index finger, and then grasp the back of the earring between the thumb and index finger of your other hand. Gently wiggle or twist the back of the earring to loosen it from the post, and then pull it backwards, away from the lobe. Try not to bend the earring post sideways or put uneven pressure on the earring as you remove it. Continue to hold the front of the stud between the fingers of your other hand so that it doesn’t fall away and get lost, but be careful not to pull both parts of the earring away at once. When you have removed the backing of the earring, you can then gently pull the front of the stud and the post out of your earlobe from the front.
How do you store stud earrings?
As stud earrings are generally quite small, it’s important to think carefully about how you store them. It’s all too easy for pairs to become separated, or for the backings to become separated from the front of the studs. Keep pairs together and secure them into something like felt or canvas so that they can’t roll around. You can buy jewellery boxes or earring trays with designated sections for stud earrings, or create your own using a layer of felt in the bottom of a box or drawer.
How do you clean stud earrings?
To keep your earrings looking their best, and to protect your piercings from infection, it’s important to clean your stud earrings regularly. This is also a good opportunity to check the general condition of your earrings and notice any loosening of gemstones. If you’re confident that your stud earrings just need a bit of TLC to restore their sparkle, you can soak them in warm, soapy water for about 20 minutes. Avoid using any harsh chemicals and just stick to dishwashing soap to loosen any dirt or grime. You can then gently brush them with a soft toothbrush, rinse and dry with a soft cloth. Remember at Secrets Shhh we have a great range of cleaning products available online or instore.
How tight should stud earrings be?
It's important that your earrings feel tight enough that they won’t fall out, but they shouldn’t be uncomfortable or painful. Even with a gentle pull or nudge, your stud earrings should stay put and feel secure, without pinching your earlobe. You can adjust the tightness of your studs by moving the backing further away from the lobe, or closer. Both the front and back of the stud should sit flush against your earlobe, without any pressure or discomfort. If you are unsure about whether your earrings are too tight, you can visit your nearest Secrets Shhh boutique and one of our friendly experts will be happy to check and advise you. If your earring back is loose, it may sometimes be able to be adjusted or you should replace them. At Secrets Shhh we have earring backs in stock online or in store.
