The simple answer is that ear hangers are hanging earrings for stretched ears which do not weigh much more than a pair of standard earrings would weigh.
Flesh plugs and tunnels sit inside the ear lobe and 'ear hangers' are designs which hang down. They can be made of a variety of materials but are usually made from wood or brass, they can be hoops, spirals or hooks with dangling decorations. We sell ear hangers individually and some designs are only sold in pairs.
Ear weights hang from the ear in the same way but they are heavier. Ear weights come in a range of weights and sizes. Unlike plugs and tunnels the sizing for ear weights does not need to be exact. For example a 10mm ear weight just needs an ear stretch of a minimum of 10mm and will happily sit in much larger stretched ears. So our ear weights come with a 'minimum required' lobe size.
For example If you are at 12mm you can wear all weights listed up to including 'For 12mm and above' So you can wear 'For 6mm and Above' 'For 8mm and Above' 'For 10mm as well as 'For 12mm and Above' But items labelled 'For 14mm and Above' will be too big to fit your ears.
If you are at 18mm or more then you can wear all our ear weights as we have none that require a larger hole than 18mm. Though you do need to consider the weight. A very light weight for 6mm and above will fit in a much larger stretch but may be prone to falling out. Make a choice for your lobes based on the design and weight.
The range of weight of ear weights varies from very light to heavy according to the below chart. A light weight will be barely noticeable and can be worn easily all day but a heavy weight will be noticeable. You should not wear heavy weights 24/7 for the reasons given in this blog article.
