There are many gorgeous crescents and spirals you may try. These jewelry pieces are not only elegant, but also very functional. They combine tapers with jewelry, making a very attractive piece you will sure want to try.
Why Using Crescents and Spirals?
First of all: they are beautiful. Crescent and Spiral jewelry is made to be elegant and eye-catching. Many spirals and crescents are made of organic materials, which makes them truly unique and special. They are a great choice for stretched piercings. While they are typically used for earlobes, you can wear them in any stretched piercing. For example, many people wear them as septum jewelry.
Another great thing about crescents and spirals is that many of them can be used as tapers. In fact, many of them are made with this particular use in mind. Crescents and spirals can be used to safely and comfortably stretch your piercing to a larger gauge. This is why they are known as “gauging jewelry pieces” or “gauging tools”.
The main advantage to crescent and spiral tapers is that, unlike many traditional (straight) ones, is that they can be worn for a prolonged period of time. Spirals and crescents can be used as jewelry, which means you can keep them in your earlobe so it can stretch on its own.
Spirals and crescents also provide a very comfortable stretching experience, because you don’t just simply jump from one gauge to another. Instead, you slowly move from one to the other by gently adjusting your jewelry.
Using Spirals and Crescents
Spirals and crescents can be used as both jewelry and a stretching taper. They are actually very easy to use: you simply insert them in your stretched earlobe (or another stretched jewelry). You start with the side that’s the same as your current gauge and then you slowly move to a larger gauge over a period of several days.
It means that you don’t simply jump from one gauge to the other. You move the spiral or crescent slowly and gently to the thicker end, bit by bit, every day. Once you get to the large part of the jewelry (typically the middle) your piercing is stretched to the larger gauge, all without any pain and discomfort.
When using spirals and crescents to stretch your jewelry, keep in mind that patience is the key. Don’t try to force the jewelry through the piercing and don’t go too fast. It may seem like a long process, but it’s important to go slowly. It’s the best way to stretch your piercing without any problems or negative effects.
