Tiger's Eye Keyhole Weight Hanger

$ 30.50

Tiger's Eye Keyhole Weight Hanger

The Tiger's Eye Weight Hangers are a psuedomorph of compact Quartz. The ear stretching accessory is formed when the Quartz takes over and dissolves the Crocodolite, leaving the Quartz in a fibrous and chatoyant form. This is a completely natural stone, unaltered from its unique structure and original form.

Weight hangers are for occasional wear at events or to change out during the day for a particular look, rather than the kind of jewelry that you sleep in or wear in a freshly stretched ear because this puts you at higher risk for scar tissue.

Ear Stretching

If you’re looking to stretch your ears you’re better off using stretch plugs or tunnels.

For relief on a freshly-stretched ear or continuous maintenance of a stretched ear, consider trying one of our widely-popular healing ointments:

Daily Conditioning Oil

Ear weights only stretch the bottom of your ear lobe. You want to avoid this because stretching the entire diameter of the ear is super important, otherwise this may lead to breakages when the skin begins to thin. You are also at risk of loss of blood flow which may lead to the skin dying off. It is also important to rotate ear weights out during the week in order to help the healing process and retain the structure and existing size of your currently stretched ears.
