WHY I’M CONTEMPLATING PIERCING MY EARS AT 30

 

 

Somehow I’ve managed to get to 30 without a single piercing or tattoo.  I think this makes me an oddity (most women at least have their ears pierced) and I’ve started to think I’m majorly missing out!

Finally, at this ripe old age I’m considering piercing my ears…

 

 

Until recently my eyes hadn’t been fully opened to the delightful and glittering world of earrings. Obviously, I’d admired from a far and noticed them sparkling in other people’s ears but I never truly got excited by them.

This all changed when London Road Jewellery kindly offered me the opportunity to select a few pieces from their beautiful and extensive collection for a photoshoot. Having free reign to choose whatever my heart desired was much like being a kid in a candy store but I found myself repeatedly lusting after the same thing; earrings.

 

 

After being greeted by gorgeous earring after gorgeous earring I knew if I was ever going to pierce my ears, these were the ones I wanted to wear.

Here are few of my London Road Jewellery highlights:

 

Bloomsbury Smoky Quartz Cocktail Earrings £495

 

I’m starting with my absolute favourite, the Bloomsbury Smoky Quartz Cocktail Earrings. I adore the vintage feel these have. They remind of me of something from the 1920s.

They’re a perfect statement without being over the top and would be my ideal day-to-day earring.

 

3D Starry Night Drop Earrings £249.99

 

For those days I fancied something a little more statement.  I would wear the 3D Starry Night Drop Earrings.  We all know I have an obsession with stars so it’s hardly surprising I’m drawn to these.

Dangly earrings seem to be all the rage at the moment and I like that these are a perfect blend of statement and elegance.

 

Classic White Gold Grey Pearl Bead Drop Earrings £159.99

 

Thirdly, I think every girl needs a pair of pearl earrings in her jewellery box.  I’m captivated by some of the more unusual coloured pearls, such as this peacock version which dances between blue to black to green depending on the light.  I also love London Road’s bonze pearl which is spectacular, check it out HERE.

London Road Jewellery’s pearl earrings start from £69.99 which I think is really good value considering you’re getting genuine pearls in either 9ct gold or solid silver.

 

 

Also, from what I’ve heard when it comes to earrings you’re so much better off investing in real gold and silver.  I would honestly rather spend once on something which will become an heirloom than five pieces of costume jewellery that will potentially turn my ears green!

If truth be told, the only thing holding me back is I’m a baby and the needle part is toying with my emotions.  For all those that do have their ears pierced please leave lots of comments below letting me know how painless it is!

 

 

A big thank you to London Road for sponsoring this post and giving me the opportunity to try a few of your earrings before I make my final decision.

    You’d look great with earrings on. 🙂 I actually got my ears pierced when I was a baby so I don’t remember it at all.

      Lucky you! I kinda wish I got it out the way when I was a baby too xx

    There are so many gorgeous earrings out there that require pierced ears! I’m surprised that it took so long for you to get your ears pierced!

      I often wear clip ons but I find them quite heavy on the ears. I’m still contemplating piercing them but watch this space! xx

    Oh wow I guess that’s really an oddity as almost every girl/ women has earrings 🙂
    So I wouldn’t survive actually without some cute little earrings – I definitely recommend it to you 🙂
    Also those earrings you picked are so adorable ♥

    That is so funny you say that, but I am thinking of doing the same thing! I had my ears pierced when I was in my teens but at the time I was only in to silver and I can not wear silver I am allergic when it comes to piercings. I can only wear gold which I did not like at the time. But I like it now so I just may do it!

    I can see why you’re contemplating getting your ears pierced because all of those earrings are gorgeous! I love the starry nights ones. I have two piercings on each ear and as someone who has the lowest pain tolerance it doesn’t really hurt at all! The scariest part for me was the noise the device made haha x

    Wow, congratulations for this collaboration, somehow I envy you because I simply love jewelry and one of my favourites are the earrings. I will say to you that if you decide to pierce your ears, you won’t regret it at all, you will wonder why you haven’t done it before. I had my ears pierced when I was a toddler and after that I stoped usong earrings and the holes got closed that why when I grew up and went to university I had my ears pierced again and I am very, very happy!!!
    Regards,
    Flo

    • thatnewd August 19, 2018 / 11:45 pm

      I think I need to do it, so I can wear all the pretty earrings!! xx

    • thatnewd August 19, 2018 / 11:45 pm

      I sometimes wear clip ons but I find them quite heavy! I’m still in town minds but I’m definitely leaning towards piercing them xx

    • thatnewd August 19, 2018 / 11:55 pm

      Haha, I’m very tempted!! xx

    • thatnewd August 19, 2018 / 11:55 pm

      Thank you so much lovely xx

    Those earrings look so chic! I have a total of 6 piercings, 3 on each ear. If you’re really serious on piercing your ears for the first time I highly suggest going to a professional that will use a cute hypoallergenic earring to insert in your new piercing because you’re not allowed to remove it for 2 weeks 🙂

      Great advice, I will definitely look into those types of piercings. Thank you so much hun xx

  13. LaToya Cole August 17, 2018 / 3:42 pm

    All of this time that I have read your blog I never realized that your ears were not pierced. I had mine pierced when I was a baby and got a second set of ear piercings when I was eighteen. I also have a phobia with regards to needles and I was a big baby when I went the second time. I think I scared the little kids waiting to get their ears pierced after they saw a grown woman trying not to cry lol.

    • thatnewd August 19, 2018 / 11:57 pm

      I totally relate to this hun, hehe! Did it hurt in the end? xx

    • thatnewd August 19, 2018 / 11:57 pm

      For sure, I only want to buy earrings which will last and are great quality xx

    • thatnewd August 19, 2018 / 11:58 pm

      Thank you xx

    • thatnewd August 19, 2018 / 11:58 pm

      Oooh thank you so much xx

    • thatnewd August 19, 2018 / 11:58 pm

      I’m so tempted!! xx
