No one ever wants to lose their Earrings and or Backings, but sometimes an unexpected loss can occur.

The best way to prevent an Ear piercing from closing,

which could seem immediate for an individual that recently just had their ears pierced, is to be prepared.

This can be especially helpful with younger children.

A clean small piece of nylon line may also be inserted if additional jewelry pieces are not available.

Loss of Earrings and or Backings can be typically more of an issue for a new piercing.

Specifically, a piercing that is not well healed (any piercing under one year old)

rather than a well-healed piercing,

which in most cases Earrings and or Backings loss would not be much of an issue at all,

unless the piercing is problematic or suffered a trauma.

If your Earring Gets Removed by accident, wash it and inspect for damages,

then Replace or Reinstall the Earring as soon as possible.

Make Sure all of the Components are functioning properly.

If Earring and or Backing that has come out of a piercing can be located,

wash it, inspect for damages and immediately re install or replace the Earring and or Backing.

  Earrings should not be changed during the initial healing period,

unless an issue regarding the progress of the piercing is present or

damages that may have occurred with a truama issue have occured.

For Ear Lobes, you must wear the original jewelry for 6-9+ weeks.

For most other Ear Piercings or Cartilage wait 6-9+ months

before changing your jewelry style for fun or fashion.


Your piercing will not be completely healed for several years.

Even after the piercing is healed,

it is very possible that if you remove the Earring,

especially over night or even for a short period of time,

Changing along with reinsertion (Installing an Earring)

can be very difficult and sometimes even impossible.

Use this simple technique to test the friction post and backing components for security.

If the backing easily disengages during the test, replace the backing.

If the backing has suffered a trauma it can become mis-shaped compromising the backing security function.

If the post is very old and has been taken on and off many times

then the notch inscribed on the post can become shallow which could contribute to an earrings security function,

though the first suspect would be the actual backing component integrity.

Being prepared can include storing additional clean Earrings

and or Backings in a small sealed packet ready for use at any time.

This can be especially helpful for those with small children.

Whatever the case. Don't panic if you experience Earring Loss and it won't go back in.

Your Ear Piercing can be Re-Opened Anytime.
