Say hello to the Astrid and Miyu Barbell Collection 👋

If you’re looking to update your piercing jewellery with some cute new A&M jewels, you’re in the right place. We’re here to help with our tips & tricks of styling your barbells within your ear stack, how to wear barbells, and our top picks from our post-piercing jewellery collection.

Our barbell earrings are all sterling silver, so they’re suitable for sensitive ears – we also offer 18k gold & 18k rose gold platings, so you can take your pick of our dainty, classic & statement barbells!

What is a barbell earring?

The A&M barbell earrings are made of a straight bar with a bead at the end, which is twisted on to secure onto the ear. They all have a gauge of 1mm, which is slightly thicker than standard earrings.

This collection is made for healed piercings, so make sure your piercings are healed before changing them out! For lobe piercings, that can take between 6-12 weeks. Ear cartilage including tragus, anti-tragus, upper and lower conch, helix, snug, daith, rook, etc is 3-6 months but in some instances can take longer.

Check out our Piercing Aftercare Guide for more info, here.

How to wear barbell earrings

1. Unscrew the ball from the back of the earring

2. Place the ball behind your piercing

3. Bring the earring to the ear and feed through the piercing

4. Screw ball onto the earring

What are the best barbell earrings for cartilage piercings?

Barbell earrings are the perfect addition to your helix piercing - we think it's an opportunity to add a little bit of sparkle to your ear stack, with not much fuss. A&M recommends adding statement crystal barbells with shining cubic zirconia stones for an eye-catching effect ✨
