I had them done about 15 years ago, didn't like the idea later of earrings in my ears...so took them out after some time.... and let them close over.
Just wasn't me I guess, plus I don't like even clip on's now.Would only wear them once or twice a year.
I had my ears pierced just after I started work. I had it done in Myer in Melbourne. They used to do it in the jewellery section in those days - I had studs shot into them. I wear earrings to work most days and usually match them to necklaces.
Have had pierced ears - two each side - for over forty years too. Love jewellery and earrings can match mood and outfits, small, long whatever ... just had another piercing done at the end of january on the top part of the lobe. don't mind earrings on men - all in moderation tho...
yes had ears pieced when my daughter wanted hers down , do not wear earrings that much nowadays, I am lucky as the holes do not close over and the holes cannot been seen if not wearing earrings my daughter has the problem of the holes closing over if she does not wear her earrings so she wears them all then time.
I had three piercings in my lobes in the 1970's, when I was 14, 16 and 19. However the middle one was out of alignment with the others, and the top one was a bit close to the middle, so I took the top one out a couple of years ago. I have to wear sleepers or they will close over, so usually I wear sleepers in one and thick sleeper sized hoops in the bottom one, but I rarely wear earrings now. I used to like to match them to necklaces and still have a collection.
I had my ears pierced as well as our daughters ears, on the morning of my younger b/i/l's wedding, many years ago. I hardly ever wear earrings now, & I'm to busy getting on the 10 or so bracelets each day to match the floral cotton dress I'm wearing when we go out! I also wear necklaces & sometimes a brooch, if it matches my patterned dress!
