At what weight does an earring become too heavy to wear?
lol, I guess its just me, but some of the responses are a bit funny.
Mind you, ive built some earrings (ear weights actually) that were in
the 16oz range a piece, yep 2 lbs of stainless steel hanging from the
lobes. Yes that is an extreme example, but goes to show that earring
weight is subjective to the wearer.
On a side note, but somewhat related. For those of you that wear, or
have clients that wear heavy earrings and have that tell tale
cheese slicer cut ear lobe, start using thicker posts, say in the
14 ga - 12 ga. range (If your hole can accomodate that). This does a
couple things, one, provides more surface area in the actual piercing
to support the earring, and two, with the larger surface area, it
distributes the load better. This will reduce or eliminate the
migration of those tiny ear wires thru the skin. Not to mention, it
opens up the door to some hella cool jewelry in the body piercing
