What You Need to Know About Stud Earrings

Learn all you need to know about stud earrings.

What Are Stud Earrings?

A stud earring is a simple earring with a small point attached to a post, which is worn through the earlobe. The post connects to a removable back, which helps to keep the earring in place. 

There are various backings for stud earrings, such as screw, tension, ball, push, and level backings. Each offers a different level of security.

Pain, Healing Time, and Aftercare

The pain from a stud earring depends on the individual’s tolerance level. For people with sensitive ears, stud earrings are a great starting point to avoid excessive pain or discomfort. They can also be worn for longer without needing to remove them.

Healing from a stud piercing typically takes between four and six months. Overall, healing times vary between individuals and depend on factors like sleep, stress level, general health, and aftercare.

For aftercare, a sterile saline solution or soap & water to clean two to three times a day is recommended. Then rinse with water as needed, and pat the area dry. 

What Types of Jewelry Are Used?

Stud earrings come with a host of customization options. Studs can be personalized according to the backing, material used, or front ornament.

The front ornament refers to the centerpiece where your desired diamond, ruby, or other gemstone is placed. However, the front ornament can also be made of anything ranging from nameplates and hearts to flags, or other symbols.

Stud earrings can also be made from various materials. Common choices include gold, silver, platinum, and stainless steel. Stainless steel studs are great for their affordability and lack of skin allergies. 

Different types of ear backings afford different protection levels. Push-back studs are one of the most popular, with a small piece of metal pushed on the earring post. However, this backing is prone to slipping and may need replacing often.

Screw-back studs are similar to push-backs, though with a more secure screw mechanism. Ball-back earrings come closer to push-backs, but also have a design on the ball backs. Clip-on studs are for people with skin too sensitive for earrings or a high risk of infection.
