Best Type Of Jewelry For Stretched Ears

  • If you have stretched piercings, you're probably familiar with what is available on the market.

    Or you might not be!

    Whether you're new to stretching or a seasoned pro, I've got details on some of the best types of jewelry to wear in your stretched ears!

  • Glass - Glass plugs, including dichro, colorfronts, eyelets and spirals make for great body jewelry. Glass is a great option for stretched ears because many people do not have allergic reactions to it, it is versatile and is very durable.

  • Silicone- Kaos Softwear is a company that makes silicone plugs and eyelets. The really cool thing about silicone plugs is the fact they're SQUISHY! These plugs are pliable in your hands and can be folded to insert in your ear. Once in your ear, they pop open and keep your holes open. Silicone is porous, so they should be oiled before they are inserted. You should also oil them every day while wearing them to be sure they don't stick to your ears!

  • Wood - It is a great organic material, but it has to be oiled regularly so it does not dry out. Also, wood can't be worn in the shower because it might expand in your ear... ouch! There are many wood styles out there including concave saddle plugs, eyelets and hanging designs. Another good thing about wood is that it helps with ear cheese. If you don't know what that is, it's what can sometimes cause your gauges to smell bad if there is a build up.

  • Bone & Horn - Plugs made from bone and horn are typically produced from animals killed for their meat, not just killed for their bones to make jewelry. Because it's an animal by-product, it is NOT vegan-friendly. Bone and horn needs to be oiled often because it can dry out. Like wood, it can't be worn in the shower or it may expand. They're a good choice for body jewelry because they can be carved into many different shapes and styles. Also excellent for aiding in the prevention of ear cheese.

  • Titanium - This super-light metal can be polished or colored (known as anodized) and comes in many different styles, from eyelets to plugs to hanging designs and captive bead rings.

  • Stainless steel - This polished metal looks cool in your ears, but beware, many people have reactions to it! It can be made into many different styles like screw-on tunnels, solid plugs with etched designs and captive bead rings.
