Do you have double pierced ears?

If you do, what are your favorite earring combinations? Do you always wear a stud in one hole?

When I got the second piercing, I had one set of classic gold hoops with a 6mm gold ball stud in the second hole.
Now I wear a classic larger 14k gold hoop with a second, smaller gold hoop in the second hole.
I'd be open to suggestions for more classic but kicked up looks?
Diamond hoops/studs, etc?

I have always had a diamond stud (small) in the upper hole but lost one a while ago....keep looking at the diamonique offerings but cant make up my mind....needs to be less that .5 carat per ear....prettier look if small in my opinion....any suggestions? TIA!

IN2BE, I do have double piercings, and like Snow usually combine a stud with a hoop or dangle. In the early 90's one of my favorite combinations was Laurel Burch bird studs and 3/4" bird hoops.

Kindness first..

The first hole I wear a small hoop and the second hole I wear a ball stud.

I have three holes in each ear and for a long while I left the top hole open and just wore earrings in the bottom two. Recently I started wearing three again and am happy I did.
I have Ross Simons white gold and diamonds (itty bitty) peace sign studs in top hole, small whilte gold and diamond hoops (ShopNBC) in the second hole and wear all different earrings in the third hole although I wear my pearl studs quite a bit.
I am lazy and leave in the first two all the time...sleep in them

Yes, double piercings. I always wear a very small diamonique stud in the upper piercing and switch off with hoops, dangle type earrings or another large stud in the lower piercing. Reva

May I suggest J23370. It's a nice size (1/4 ct. per ear) and in my opinion very sparkly and believable. I wear these in my second hole and alternate between hoops and 3/4 ct. DMQ studs in the first hole.

No, a single piercing is enough for me.

I have double piercings, but I haven't worn an earring in the top hole for years. I just don't like the way it looks now as I've gotten older....tastes change (at least mine have!). I prefer the more classic (IMO) look of a single hole/earring.

I have had double piercings for years. For whatever reason I never wear earrings in my 2nd openings. Don't know if I could even put earrings in after all these years.

I had triple piercings for a few years then got tired of the two on each ear, so I let them close up. Now I'm back to my one piercing.

I have one ear double and one ear triple. To be completely honest, I had those piercings done in the eighties to go along with my high hair. Now in my forties, the first holes are the only ones I use. I guess I associate all the extra piercings with youth.

meezer, I looked at that Diamonique stud, really cute and believable.
Hmmmmm larger diamond stud with smaller, or diamond hoop with diamond stud?
Might be a new evening out look to try! ;-)

Double piercing in both - probably had since the 80's.
Have a third in just one
Wear tiny ruby stud earrings in the second (birthstone)
Tiny diamond stud earrings in third
Always wear different ones in the first piercings

small dmq stud in second piercing, pearl studs or small gold hoops or small dmq tacori leverbacks in main piercing. My earlobes are small, and my piercings are close together. So if I wear two stud earrings they are nearly touching each other. I prefer the look of the second piercing a bit higher up, but I didn't have enough room to do that.

I wear moissanite studs in my 2nd piercings. They are each 1/2 carat. I love the sparkle

I wanted to do something WILD when I turned 40...so I had my left ear pierced again.
Mainly so I would be able to wear the earring stud of it's lost mate...?...Did that sound right? You know what I mean.
Therefore, I have one ear with 2 pierces and one ear with 1 pierce.
I've always liked the look of the pierced nose with a pretty stud...it looks so exotic...B-)

I got mine at fromthesky on sale. They were a lot less expensive than anywhere else. It was quite a bargain at the time.

I have 3 holes in each ear. Got them when I was 17,18, & 19.
I usually wear different style earring in my 1st hole. I rarely wear earrings in my 2nd & 3rd hole anymore.
My earrings of choice are hoops first then some kind of dangle.

Have 2 in my left and 1 in my right. That way I can wear earrings that I've lost the mates for....LOL. I usually wear either a small hoop or a stud in the top (single) pierce & mainly hoops in the bottom holes but sometimes wear pretty studs, especially on the weekend. I used to wear Eterna Gold studs every weekend....called them my weekend earrings....larger studs in my bottom holes and a smaller stud in the top hole. I'm on a white metals kick (never thought that would happen, but it has) and wish I had those studs in WG. I did find some StSt graduated balls but the posts are THICK and take some work to get them into my ears......

I have three holes in each ear. I usually wear a hoop and a pair of small diamond studs in the other holes.

Ladies, thanks for your suggestions! Several posters have said that they don't put anything in the second piercing since they have gotten older. I must confess that I got my ears pierced when I was sixteen. I have always liked the look of double, but never got around to it.
Well, someone gave me a great pair of earrings for my 60th last month. I thought so many earrings, so little time! So, I had it done. Nothing like waiting 44 years!:^O
