What are small hoops called?

Small hoops are called huggie earrings, the reason why they are called huggies is because they are small in size and hug the earlobe. Huggie earrings are usually daintier and are smaller in size from 10mm in diameter to 14mm. Huggies are ideal for most ear piercings and can be worn on different parts of the ear too depending on the thickness of the huggie hoop. Some small hoops can also be classed as sleeper hoops which are extremely thin and small and usually used for new piercings.

Are small hoops classy?

Yes, small hoops are a classic shape and can be ideal for any smart or low key events. Their small size makes them ideal for work, casual or any occasion. The dainty size and style of small hoops ensures they don’t overtake an outfit or look and can seamlessly blend to create a demure or casual look that is ideal for smart and professional settings as well.

What is the most uncommon ear piercing?

The most uncommon ear piercing is the snug piercing, the snig piercing is pierced horizontally through the inner rim of the cartilage just above the anti-tragus. As the piercing goes through the cartilage – making it a very painful hence why it is not very popular and why it is the least popular of all ear piercings. The healing time for the snug piercing is also much longer than other ear piercings around the 4 to 6 month mark.

What is the difference between a huggie and a mini hoop?

Huggie hoops are very small and tend to hug the ear lobe and a mini hoop is a very small hoop earring that still has a gap between the ear lobe and the earring. Huggie hoops are usually around 5mm to 14mm and a mini hoop is usually around 16mm or larger. Huggie hoops are ideal for helix, daith, rook, high lobe and tragus potentially too.

Can I sleep with small hoops in?

You can sleep with very small hoops called sleeper hoops, these are tiny and thin hoops that fit snuggly around your ear/lobe and can also be used as a first earring for a new piercing.

Care tips for copper magnetic bracelets
Care tips for copper magnetic bracelets

juin 04, 2024

At DEMI+CO we have a wide variety of magnetic bracelets from classic copper, stainless steel bracelets, pewter, titanium bracelets and ceramic. Each style of magnetic bracelet requires similar cleaning and storage requirements but also there are slight differences. Copper magnetic bracelets for example are susceptible to oxidisation, whereas titanium and stainless steel can withstand water but not lotions or cleaning chemicals. Pewter is a little more hardwearing but it also requires a regular clean to ensure it stays at optimum quality.
