My daughter received the mini hoops as a Christmas gift from me. After a week of wear, she noticed tenderness and when I looked at the back of her ear today, one of the holes was quite infected. We removed the hoop and are treating it. I also purchased mini hoops for myself in the gold plated. During the first day of wear, one came undone and luckily I spotted it on the floor. They are a bit of a bear to close as I reported in my first review. As the days went on I noticed tenderness in both holes. Perhaps because I’d only worn studs in these holes, however after my daughter’s experience, now I’m not so sure. Thankfully, the tenderness has subsided and they’ve not come undone.
I thought you should know!
