So I rarely wear earrings anymore, but decided I wanted either a nice bracelet or some simple diamond earrings to wear daily. I ended up getting 1.25 cttw diamonds in white gold and I think they are beautiful. However, I could barely get them in my ears! Is it typical that diamonds come on a thicker post like this? I had to put some ointment on them to even get them in, but they're like halfway in, if that makes sense, and my ears hurt. Will it hurt the gold if I put peroxide on my ears? I feel like I just got my ears pierced or something.
