Large Gauge Earrings

Large gauge earrings are like regular earrings on steroids, with thick hooks in a wide variety of gauges so that you can find the perfect pair to fit your stretched ears. Choose from large gauge earrings made of metal, bone, horn, glass, a variety of different types of wood, and other materials.

Unlike our plugs and tunnels, which are mostly sold individually, our large gauge earrings are usually sold in pairs. Many of these beautiful earrings for stretched ears are hand-crafted, which means that no two pieces are exactly alike. As with all of our handmade jewelry, we do our best to match up the two large gauge earrings that look most alike when you purchase a pair; however, they may vary slightly in shape and size.

Here are a few of our favorite large gauge earrings. View our entire collection by visiting our Large Gauge Earrings section.

Emu Oil - Massage your earlobes with emu oil daily to increase your skin's natural elasticity so that your earlobes will be more accepting of jewelry in a larger size when you insert it.

Tapers for Stretching Earlobes & Other PiercingsJojoba Oil - Preserve your wood plugs, tunnels or large gauge earrings by keeping it coated in jojoba oil. It's also a great moisturizer to use when your earlobes are dry.

Tapers - Check out our selection of tapers in a wide range of sizes; they're a big help when you're trying to swap in larger-gauged jewelry.

Recovery Aftercare Products - After stretching your lobes, it's important to keep them clean. Our Recovery Piercing Aftercare Spray is a handy tool that you can easily carry with you, so that you can mist your ears a few times a day to keep them clean and hydrated after stretching. We also carry tea tree oil, which is a natural antiseptic and moisturizer that will keep your earlobes healthy in between stretches. Just saturate a cotton ball with Recovery Piercing Aftercare Spray, and then add a drop of tea tree oil to it before applying it to the front of your earlobe. Repeat with a fresh cotton ball on the back of your earlobe.
