At Halton Hills Fine Jewellery, we are happy to offer our customers ear piercing service. We only pierce with 14 K gold earrings, and the price ranges from about $45 to $60 for most earring styles. Our impeccable health guidelines and high quiality piercing earrings, mean you will have the absolute minimal risk of infection after your ear piercing, and your earrings can still be worn for years to come!

Our experienced staff pierce both ears simultaneously for the shortest time in discomfort. If you are worried about the pinch - it only lasts a minute - we suggest purchasing some Emla cream from the drug store. This topical anesthetic will numb any pain sensations.

Recommendations for Newly Pierced Ears

  • Clean ears with a fresh Q-tip soaked in rubbing alcohol twice a day. Remember, using rubbing alcohol too often will dry out the ears and increase the chance of infection.
  • Apply Polysporin with a fresh Q-tip many times a day. With infants, the recommendation is after every diaper change. For nursing or bottle fed babies and infants, watch for milk leaking onto the ears during feeding.
  • Clean hands thoroughly before touching ears or earrings, especially if you have pets that you have been touching.
  • If the ears show slight redness, pain or swelling for more than 24 hours, contact your family physician. Do not remove earrings before seeing your doctor.
  • Normal bathing and showering are permitted but otherwise keep the pierced area dry. Swimming is permitted.
  • Turn jewellery while ears are still wet and right after applying Polysporin.
  • Do not remove earrings under any circumstances until a minimum of 8 weeks has passed. Do not try to tighten the "butterfly" on the back of the earrings. They are specially designed to allow air to reach the pierced area, speeding the healing process.
  • It is highly recommended that only 10 karat or 14 karat gold earrings are worn for the first year.
  • When wearing either sterling silver, base metal or costume type earrings for the first time, look for redness at the site or a tingling feeling. If this occurs, remove earrings immediately and treat with a topical antibiotic.
