Most people know that stacking earrings can cause discomfort or damage if they wear too many earrings at once. This problem is especially true for those who like to stack their piercings with dangly pieces of jewelry.
A. Dangly earrings can be dangerous. The reason why dangly pieces of jewelry can be dangerous is that they can easily get caught on things. This can cause the earrings to become dislodged from the ear or, worse, pull on the earring post and damage the ear.
If you are going to wear dangly pieces of jewelry, it is essential to take a few precautions:
- Only wear as many pieces as your ear can comfortably support.
- Space out dangly earrings so that they don't bunch up together.
- When moving your head or hair around, always use caution, especially if the dangly earrings are close to your face.
B. Stick to lightweight earring styles. Buy dainty earrings and won't stretch out your ear lobe piercings the way that heavy earrings might. Sticking to small earrings, tiny hoops, or even delicate threader earrings can help keep your ear lobe piercings small and supported.
C. Limit yourself. If you must wear heavy earrings, try wearing them for only a short time. Try to limit the weight you place on your ear lobes by reserving heavy earrings for special occasions. If you plan to wear heavy earrings, make sure to take them off as soon as your event is over.
D. Another good idea is to buy hollowed-out earrings to reduce the weight on your lobes. Hollow-out earrings are an excellent option if you want the look of heavy earrings but don't want the weight to cause discomfort.
E. Use earring backs. If you are determined to wear heavy earrings, using earring backs can help distribute the weight more evenly. Sturdy earring backs will help prevent your earrings from tugging on your piercings and causing discomfort.
F. Don't overdo it! The bottom line is that you should always listen to your body. If you feel discomfort or pain, it is probably a sign that you are wearing too many earrings. Try taking a break from ear stacking and give your ears time to heal.
