7-8mm Double Piercing Earring with the Gemstone of Your Choice in Argentium and Fine Silver | One Hoop for Two Holes | Custom Earrings
Made to order: 5-7 business days before shipping.
Single side hoop for two holes with the gemstone of your choice. This listing is designed so you can easily order one hoop for 2 piercings and one hoop for 3 piercings (link below) or a single side.
Handmade hoop earrings for two side by side ear piercings. This unisex style is suitable for double pierced lobe or a larger double helix piercing. Each hoop is made using standard 20 gauge wire in argentium silver. A 4mm fine silver bezel setting is soldered to one end and holds a gemstone of your choice in place. The wire is then wrapped to create two consecutive hoops. Ends are filed smooth and rounded for comfort and safety. To ensure durability, the hoop is heat hardened then tumbled for hours. Tumbling also adds a beautiful shine. Finally, the earring is cleaned and packaged. This process takes several days to complete. The current time frame before shipping is 5-7 business days. They're worth the wait!
Setting/stone size is 4 mm, inside hoop diameter is 7-8mm, and the space between piercings is 1/4" (6-7mm). All sizes are approximate since these are handmade to order. Sizes can be customized. If you need a different spacing or a smaller diameter, leave detailed measurements in the "note to seller" box at checkout. Larger diameter hoops or thicker gauges are available for an additional fee. Please contact us for a custom quote.
This listing is for a single side hoop for two piercings. Gemstones will vary since they're natural but will be equally beautiful!

How in the world do these work? When your hoops arrive, they are on the card for the appropriate side. When looking at the card, the hoop on the left is for the left ear and the hoop on the right is for the right ear. Spiral the hoop off of the card. Imagine these are piercings and the process is similar for your ears. Even though we clean all jewelry before mailing, you may want to use a gentle hand soap to wash your earrings and your hands before proceeding. Place the end of the hoop through the lower piercing and spiral, or roll, the hoop around so the end comes back around to the front. The end will then go through the front of the second piercing. Continue to roll the hoop through each piercing until the gem back is flat against the earlobe at the lower piercing. A mirror makes this process much easier. It may be awkward the first few times but will get easier with practice.

Some things to consider: the double and triple hoops may take a few days for your ears to adjust to. These are fairly rigid and need to be spaced appropriately for your piercings to be comfortable. Some people find wearing them for a few hours, removing them and allowing the ears to rest overnight then repeating this process for a few days allows your piercings to adjust to this style. **Please do not follow this process with new piercings. New piercings can heal over quickly so leaving them empty overnight may cause issues.**
As with any jewelry, remove if discomfort occurs.
