A few months ago, my friend Leah and I went for a walk and ended up stopping by Rowan, a piercing and jewelry brand run by women. We were planning to just peek at their pretty things, but after watching a few kids and grown-ups admiring new piercings in the mirrors, we got caught up in the excitement! The next thing I knew, I was sitting in the piercing chair…
At first, I was nervous and felt 13 again. But Leah held my hand and the licensed nurse who took care of me was gentle and kind. The whole process took only a couple minutes. And I LOVE my second piercing. Many of my friends have been getting multiple piercings with all different earring styles. Here are a couple favorites…
How pretty are these endless hoops? They go all the way around – 360 degrees! – and they’re simple and effortless, like the earrings version of a white T-shirt and jeans. I also got these sparkly ones for when I’m feeling fancy.
Nine-year-old Anton has been begging to get his ears pierced. At Rowan, he zeroed in on the lion stud, lightning bolt and birthstones. “It’s so cool because it’s YOUR stone,” he says. “I was born in July so mine is ruby.” He also liked the serpent style: “When I have my ears pierced, I will get this one.”
And have you heard of Rowan’s earring club? It’s a fun monthly subscription, where you get limited-edition studs in reusable gift boxes. What a dream for anyone who loves earrings (or has a new piercing). (The first earring delivery also comes with a surprise welcome gift.)
All Rowan earrings are hypoallergenic and made with 100% premium metals, which are great for sensitive ears. And their in-store piercings are done by professional nurses. So, if you (or your little ones) wear their earrings, you can feel safe and in good hands.
Great news: Rowan is offering 20% off all full-price jewelry, as well as their Earring Club, which would make such a great holiday gift! Use code CUPOFJO20, good until November 30th. See all Rowan jewelry here. (Discount excludes piercing services and piercing jewelry.)
Which earrings are your favorites? Would you get a new piercing? We’d love to hear…
