Large Gauge Horseshoe Earring is for a well stretched piercing. They can be used where ever you have gradually stretched your piercing. The ball screws into the ends of both circular bars. This makes it easier to put on yourself. This Large Gauge Horseshoe Earring is much easier to use than a standard ball closure ring.
This piece of jewellery is sometimes used for a Prince Albert or other things but I won’t go into the details. I think it is sometimes used as it is, without going into a piercing? It is also used as Large Gauge Earrings.
Both the ring and ball are made from surgical steel 316L. This means they are implant-grade surgical stainless steel. This is probably the most common and most widely used metal for body piercings. Surgical Stainless Steels (316L) are used for bone fixation screws, body pins, bone plates, staples, amongst many other applications. We do not play or gamble with your health.
If you’re wearing SS 316L jewellery and are having problems with irritation or a new piercing that just won’t heal, it is possible that you have a intolerance of surgical steel and might want to try titanium. Please note that this is generally quite rare to be allergic to this metal.
Advice for safe ear stretching:
It is important to wash your hands with antibacterial soap and hot water before you begin ear stretching. To ensure your ear stretcher is clean before you begin, soak the ear stretcher in studex or alcohol for 5 minutes before inserting. It can be helpful to soak the lobe in hot water prior to stretching to increase circulation and soften and relax the tissue. We recommend that you use a lubricant like a KY Jelly, Savlon or medical gel. It is important to take it slowly and do it yourself, as someone else pushing the ear stretcher can not monitor your level of pain and may push too fast and hard and tear the ear.
Once you have reached the desired expansion size, the jewellery should be left for 6 weeks or until completely healed before attempting to further size up. This allows the new skin time to thicken and toughen up before continuing with the enlarging process again
