“Curated ears” have to be my favourite new jewellery trend. Combining metals, textures, stones, studs and hoops to create your own perfectly adorned ear over time, it’s all about being creative and unique. I’ve started my own look with Black Betty’s new Ear Candy range, which uses silver, gold and rose gold with different precious and semi-precious stones and is designed to mix-and-match.
I am a huge fan of Black Betty’s gorgeous, luxurious jewels. I wear two stacking rings from their Pinky Swear range every single day, and I always marvel at just how sparkly those little diamonds are. The quality of their jewels really is superior, and I have seen rings in my same design that just don’t have the same sparkle.
Cape Town’s Best Piercing Studio: Black Betty Showroom in Seapoint
The new piercing Black Betty piercing studio on Regent Road in Sea Point is officially open and ready to get your Ear Candy look started! Their piercer, Shelden Humphriss has been piercing since 2014 and will guide you through the process every step of the way. Whether you’re ready to go from one piercing to three or getting your very first piercing, she’s your girl. I have had many piercings in my life (including my nose and lip when I was young and wild) and I don’t think anyone has ever been more thorough or given me a piercing more painless.
Black Betty only uses the safest & cleanest metals (100% nickel free) for piercings including the highest Implant Grade Titanium & 14 – 18ct Gold. All their needles are single use and disposed of after with a medical waste company. All gauze and cotton tips are pre packaged and sterile to ensure a lesser chance of infection. Tools are also cleaned, packaged and autoclaved at 250 degrees to ensure sterility. It’s one professional setup!
You can order your own ear candy online, or visit the Black Betty studio at 95 Regent Road in Sea Point to see the entire range and have your piercings done with Shelden. They are priced for all different budgets, so they make the perfect gift too!
