How should I take care of my jewelry?
While Eliza Page jewelry is designed to last, it will last longer with proper care. Taking basic measures to protect and care for your jewelry will help to preserve the materials and the finish. These basic jewelry care techniques can help you protect your Eliza Page jewelry: Remove your jewelry when using cleaning solvents or applying beauty products. Do not wear your jewelry while swimming or bathing or when exposed to extreme temperatures. Do not expose items to water or moisture, as it can tarnish your jewelry. Store jewelry carefully in a dry, dust-free place such as in its jewelry pouch or box, and keep it separated from other materials so it doesn’t scratch.

Ear Piercings at Eliza Page
What type of piercings do you offer?
Right now we only offer lobe and helix piercings using high quality 14k gold & diamond piercing studs. We plan to expand and offer other piercing options in the future. See our piercing guide here.
Do you pierce with needles or guns?
We pierce using sterile, surgically sharp hollow needles. This allows for optimal placement and superior healing compared to a piercing gun. Piercing with a gun has the potential to shatter cartilage or tissue and can never be sterilized because they are made of plastic.
What jewelry do you use?
We have a wide variety of 14k yellow or white gold piercing studs with standard butterfly backs and 18 gauge posts. The slightly wider post helps with the healing process by ensuring that your new piercing doesn't heal too tight for standard earrings and allows proper drainage.
Do you offer flat back piercing studs?
Flat back studs are used for small spaces where a butterfly back might cause irritation - i.e. the tragus or a forward helix piercing. We currently do not offer these piercings at this time.
How many piercings can I get at once?
For lobe piercings, we recommend no more than 4 piercings at a time - i.e. 2 pairs of lobe piercings.
For cartilage/helix piercings, we recommend you choose one side to pierce at a time as these piercings can be sore for a few months.
How much will it cost?
The cost of piercing is included with the purchase of your piercing studs.
Prices start at $80.00 for a single simple gold ball stud and go up to $250.00 for a diamond stud.
How old do I have to be to get pierced?
We are happy to pierce clients as 5 years old and up! Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and must bring a birth certificate or papers of guardianship.
If you are 18 years or older please bring a valid drivers licence or state issued ID.
Who is your piercer and what training do they have?
Our exclusive in-house piercing stylist, Sirandyn, is thoroughly trained in the art of needle piercing to ensure the health and safety of our customers. As a local business, we are committed to a private and safe experience.
What is your best advice for healing any ear piercing?
Consistent cleaning and no touching. The less you touch your new piercing the less likely you are to introduce germs to your healing tissue.
What should I do before a piercing?
Make sure you have eaten a good meal, are hydrated, and that you are in overall good health. Avoiding alcohol and ibuprofen is also a good idea as these can both thin the blood and make you bleed more.
How do I book my piercing appointment? Do you take walk-ins?
You can book your appointment online through our appointment calendar or you can call the store. We ask that you please purchase your preferred piercing studs online so we can assure they are fully sterilized and ready for your appointment. You can view all of our piercing studs here.
We can try to accommodate walk-ins but your jewelry choices will be limited to what options we have pre-sterilized on any given day.
How do I clean my piercing?
- WASH your hands thoroughly prior to cleaning or touching on or near your piercing with liquid antibacterial, anti-microbial or germicidal soap.
- SOAP two to three times a day. Lather up a pearl size drop of the soap to clean the jewelry and the piercing. Leave the cleanser on the piercing no more than thirty seconds, then rinse thoroughly to remove all traces of the soap from the piercing. Q-Tips work well for applying the soap.
- SALINE soak for five to ten minutes once a day. Dissolve 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon sea salt into one cup (8 oz) of warm distilled or bottled water and apply.
- DRY with disposable paper products or air dry, because cloth towels can harbor bacteria.
How long will my piercing take to heal?
Healing times will vary between people.
Lobe piercings take about 2 months to heal.
Cartilage/Helix piercings take about 6+ months to heal.
How do I know my piercing is infected?
After piercing, it's normal to experience slight bleeding, swelling, tenderness, itching, bruising, or soreness.
If you experience any symptoms such as: fever, ear is warm to the touch, throbbing pain, burning or any other symptom that seems to be getting worse, we recommend seeing a doctor as soon as possible.
When can I change out my piercing?
We recommend keeping your piercing jewelry in for the full healing time (lobes healing time 2 months & cartilage/helix healing time 6+ months). You should sleep with them and do all your normal daily activities with your piercing studs.
What to avoid?
- Avoid friction from clothing, excessive motion of the area, playing with the jewelry and vigorous cleaning.
- Avoid the use of alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, Betadine, Hibiclens, or ointment on your piercing.
- Avoid over cleaning. This can delay your healing and irritate your piercing.
- Avoid submerging the piercing in bodies of water such as lakes, pools, jacuzzis, etc.
- Avoid all beauty and personal care products on or around the piercing including cosmetics, lotions, sprays, etc.
