Good care is very important

Taking good care of your earrings and piercing is important. It prevents inflammation and ensures that you can enjoy the most beautiful earrings without any problems. Below are some important points in the field of care.

Clean well and regularly

It is important to regularly check and clean your earrings and the piercing area. Are you introducing silver children's earrings for the first time? Then it is important to use sterile earrings. So clean these with Sterilon and always wash your hands before you get started.

Have you had earpiercing's recently? Then it is recommended to clean the piercing area twice a day. You can simply do this with a saline solution. While you are doing this, you can gently twist the earrings so that the liquid soaks into the ear piercing.

The closure of the earring

It is important not to press the earring clasp too tightly against the ear. It is important that there is sufficient air available. In addition, it prevents annoying things such as ingrown closures and inflamed holes.

What to do in case of inflammation?

Inflammation can have various causes. For example, you may have used earrings made of a certain metal that you can't stand. It is also possible that dirt has entered the hole, or that you have pressed the closure of the earring too tightly against your earlobe.

Is there an inflammation? Then it can help to dab the hole with alcohol. This can have a cleansing effect, which could reduce inflammation. Is it a severe inflammation that threatens to spread? Then a visit to the doctor may be necessary.

Inflammation can also lead to a skin allergy. For example, it can happen that you have to deal with a silver allergy, an annoying ailment that you can't get rid of just like that. But don't worry, at Staartjes en Strikjes we know something about that.

Skin-friendly earrings

We sell various skin-friendly earrings from the brand Blomdahl. These earrings are made of high quality titanium or medical plastic. These materials are safe to wear for everyone, including those with sensitive skin.

Why are my silver earrings black?

It sometimes happens that silver jewelry gets a black discoloration. Silver is a precious metal that can oxidize over time. Although it is a natural process and in itself not harmful, it is of course a waste of your silver jewelry.

Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do to prevent your earrings from turning black. Below are some tips.

  • Take off your earrings while exercising. Since you perspire, this can have a bad effect on your earrings.
  • Also take off your earrings while swimming or showering.
  • Avoid contact with hairspray, perfume and similar products.

If you apply the above tips, your silver earrings will stay beautiful for as long as possible!
