1. How much does Ear Piercing cost and what Earring choice do I have?
Caflon ear studs are made from hypoallergenic material meaning they do not cause allergies or irritations. Our studs start from £25 for either the White or 24ct Gold plated Surgical Steel Studs in a wide range of gemstone colours in either a bezel or claw setting. Titanium Studs are either Plain or clear crystal set and are £35.
We also have a Gift set option, which includes the choice of 2x pairs of Sterling Silver earrings. Which would normally retail at £80 but it is on offer for £50 with any ear piercing.
2. When is Ear piercing available?
We don’t usually take appointments; however, if you are looking to get a child’s ears pierced on a weekday after school, we would recommend you call us before to let us know you are interested in having piercings done. Call us on (01905) 28333.
Stacey, our ear piercing technician also has jobs to do in the workshop so you may be asked to come back in a short while, usually no more than 30 minutes.
3. How old do you have to be?
We advise that anyone who would like their ears pierced by us at ICE is over the age of 5. This is a common age requirement in most jewellers that offer ear piercing. 5 years old is usually the lowest age we will go to, but we have made exceptions for younger children who are aware of the process.
4. How is ear piercing done?
ICE use the Caflon Ear piercing gun method, now it sounds a lot scarier than it really is! This method is almost painless, it’s so quick you won’t even realise it’s happened! It is the quickest, most efficient, and cleanest method of ear piercing. So if you’ve got a young daughter, or little sister that’s frightened of the pain, we can assure you, they probably won’t even realise it’s happened! We do one ear at a time. Please watch the how it’s done video.
5. What we use to Pierce you ears
We use the Caflon Blu system which was introduced so as to allow ear piercing to comply with the European Nickel Directive 2004/96/EC. With the addition of the disposable adaptors to the Instrument the Ear Piercing Technician can feel safe in the knowledge that they are complying with the regulations
6. How long do I have to keep them in for?
The earrings must stay in for 6-8 weeks for lobe piercing and 12 weeks for cartilage piercing, with regular cleaning with the solution provided. We recommend removing the Surgical Steel studs after this period and replacing them with any earrings made of a precious metal (i.e. Silver, Gold etc) however, if you chose the Titanium option these can stay in permanently if you choose to.
