Piercing Bylaws

Here at mon éclat we take piercings VERY seriously and as such we have not only a whole collection dedicated to them, we have also decided to collaborate and partner up with Monique (our very trusted piercer extraordinaire) to bring you not only some best of the best tips and tricks but also a few Bylaws. 

1. Piercings add Style & Beauty

We believe that piercings when done right add both style and beauty to the wearer's appearance. 

2. No Piercing Guns

We believe that piercings guns should be abolished. Seriously, did you know that piercing upper parts of the ear with a gun could easily lead to serious damage and insane amounts of pain for many, many months? A gun can be used to pierce the 'earlobe fatty' part but the rest of the ear has bone. This bone can shatter really easily with the impact of a gun. Don't, just don't.

3. Find the Best Piercer

We believe that Monique is the best piercer in Malta and Gozo, like yes, really we do. Besides many testimonials from our clients and friends, Caroline has self-reviewed her 18 times - of course Caroline's behind the piercing movement too!

4. We Love all Ear Curations

We believe that there's no such thing as a bad ear curation but some ear curation ideas can melt your heart.

5. Know your Piercing

We believe that piercings get irritated (post-healing time) mainly because the wrong piece of jewellery is worn in that hole. Not all earring styles are designed to be worn anywhere and whilst your friend might be able to get away with it and live pain free, others, especially if the jewellery is not removed at bedtime, might experience pain. 

6. Know your Metals

Not all Metals behave the same - 925 Sterling Silver whilst soft beautiful and allows some intricate detailing can oxidise over time and this will case the bar to darken. You can read up all about how to choose your piercing metal and how to clean them over here.

So there you have it guys & gals the mon éclat x monique 6 piercing Bylaws.

The Jewels Themselves

Because we want you live a happy pain-free life Monique's given her top recommendations on which of the mon éclat earrings can be worn where.

Standard Lobe and Upper Lobe

Anything and everything from the earrings section but Monique does have a tip - don't push butterfly clips all the way in as this causes strain on the piercing and can widen the hole. 

All other piercings have cartilage aka bone so when wearing studs Monique recommends wearing mainly barbell studs with a thicker rod, this will stop the piercing hole from narrowing (which can happen when you wear regular studs) and the barbell ensures the piercing is secure. Our barbell back is a screw model, offering the right security and comfort to your ear. 


Monique recommends both hoops or studs, we chose:
