I purchased the tiny secret ball backs to wear in my recently-pierced third holes so I can maintain the piercings without changing earrings out to shower, swim, workout, sleep, etc. And they are the perfect nap earrings, as promised. I am a complete convert after two weeks of continuous wear. Getting the earrings screwed in was definitely not for the faint of heart…and I accidentally put one in backwards so the ball back was facing front (which you could wear that way since the backing is just as pretty). But I love having just a tiny little earring for my third hole, so I had to redo it. And the front is VERY tiny. Another reviewer mentioned that the front slipped into her new piercing, and the same happened to me. It takes a lot of patience to hold the tiny front secure while screwing in the tiny ball backing, all while not being able to see what you are doing. Make sure you insert them while leaning over a towel so that when you drop a piece (and you will do this) you don’t lose it. It’s worth the effort because once they are in, they appear to be secure. I occasionally check the back to ensure it’s still screwed in, and it seems fine. After the first two nights of sleeping in fear the front would fall into my ear again, my ears are healing fine and the front is staying put.
I was pretty frustrated putting these in, but it must be like giving birth because now I’m shopping for a different pair for my second holes, which are completely healed. Going to try the more affordable titanium flat-backed nap earrings since the piercings are older.
I receive compliments on the tiny secret earrings all the time. I keep them in and just wear whatever I feel like in my first holes, and the tiny secret earrings go with everything in my existing collection. These are definitely an investment piece, but if I go by price per wear, they are worth it. Especially since I don’t think I can get them out, so they will be a daily wear!
