The RTL TV team shows how the two 9-year-old girls Nora and Hannah, together with their moms, visit the jewelry store of Studex partner Kerstin Folter in Halle, Germany, to select their first earrings and have their ears pierced. Nora picks pink butterflies, and Hannah chooses blue daisies as piercing studs. The jeweler caters to the needs of her young customers lovingly and professionally. With the Studex System 75 instrument, the ears are pierced quickly and gently.
Kerstin Folter emphasizes the importance of hygiene, for example that newly pierced ears should only be touched with clean hands. The importance of proper aftercare twice a day with an antiseptic is also mentioned. According to Corinna Selzle, this is one of the reasons why parents choose the summer break to have their child’s ears pierced, since then they usually have a little more time to explain the aftercare routine to their children. Another reason is the fact that first earrings are a popular gift for the first day of school.
My favorite scene is toward the end of the report, when the two girls check each other and their earrings out, and Nora’s big smile at the very end! 😀
