Ear Piercing Options
We offer an ear-piercing service in our Grosvenor Centre showroom where we have trained, caring members of staff who will make the experience as easy and enjoyable as possible.
We have quiet areas in all our showrooms that are away from the windows allowing a calm and relaxed atmosphere for the procedure, away from onlookers.
In order to ensure the best possible outcome on the day and through the healing process, we only pierce ear lobes and only in those aged 7yrs and above.
Under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
We request customers book an appointment to make use to the ear-piercing service, this way we can make it a smooth process and avoid any queues which can increase nervousness! If you do come to see us without an appointment we cannot guarantee that you will be able to be seen. Please avoid lunch hours (12-2PM) as stores can be busy at this time.
We only pierce first and second piercings in earlobes. We do not offer cartilage piercing or any other body part!
We pierce with a gun using pre-loaded sterile earrings so there is no need to touch the earrings, reducing the risk of complications.
We do not pierce both ears at the same time. This is done in many other stores as it is a faster process, however any movement of the head or slight delay in timing between two piercers can cause the earrings to become misaligned. We always do one ear at a time to ensure the best possible results.
We have a variety of earring designs to choose from.
In our Grosvenor Centre Showroom, Northampton, we have the following earring options:
Titanium Ball Studs: £35.00
14ct Yellow, White or Rose Gold Ball Studs: £65.00
14ct White Gold Studs 3mm Claw Set with Cubic Zirconia: £65.00
18ct Yellow Gold Ball Studs: £85.00
All prices include a bottle of aftercare solution and we do not charge for the ear piercing service itself.
