Understanding Cartilage Piercings
Compatible Cartilage Piercings
Our cartilage earrings are tailor-made for helix piercings that have fully healed. Please note that you cannot use these earrings for piercing cartilage; they're for adorning healed piercings only.
Distinguishing Cartilage from Lobe Piercings
Cartilage piercings are distinct from lobe piercings because they're located in areas where the tissue is denser. Unlike the earlobe, which is pliable and soft, cartilage piercings always require a needle rather than the piercing guns you might see at your local mall. The healing process for cartilage piercings can extend up to a year, so maintaining cleanliness and avoiding changing your earring until it's completely healed is essential.
Addressing the Pain Factor
Cartilage piercings may be more painful than lobe piercings, but it's not as intense as you might imagine. We suggest bringing a friend for moral support, just in case.
Navigating the Healing Journey
The duration of the healing process varies based on the type of cartilage piercing, your aftercare routine, and your chosen piercer. Typically, cartilage piercings can take anywhere from six months to a year to heal. For specific healing questions, always refer to the care instructions provided during your piercing session.
Shemisli and Cartilage Piercings
Shemisli does not offer cartilage piercings; our earrings are designed exclusively for those with fully healed cartilage piercings.
Selecting the Right Earrings
For initial cartilage piercings, it's advisable to opt for a gold or titanium stud, often with a flat back. These materials are less likely to cause reactions, facilitate easier healing, and accommodate any post-piercing swelling. Once your piercing is healed (no redness, pain, or swelling, and as per your piercer's recommendations), you can switch to more stylish earrings.
Earring Gauge and Care
Our cartilage earrings feature a 5mm, 6mm, 7mm, 8mm, 9mm diameter or length. They are as easy to care for as any of our 14k gold plated or rhodium plated over solid 925 sterling silver pieces, surgical steel, and titanium. A little warm, soapy water and a gentle scrub when needed will restore their shine.
Styling Your Cartilage Earrings
Our cartilage earrings are designed to complement your daily jewelry stack and elevate any look. Add texture with our Cartilage Beaded Mini Hoop and combine them with our new Gemstone Bar Studs for a fresh seasonal twist. Or, go all out with a full stack all the way up, extra touch of elegance.
