Ainsworth Jewellers expand business with new ear piercing service

Fifth generation family-run jewellers in Blackburn, Ainsworth’s, has extended its business operations with the addition of a professional ear-piercing service. 

The Darwen Street company is now able to offer safe and sterile ear piercing with a medically-hygienic system from Inverness safe and gentle ear piercing and has created a dedicated salon within the shop where the trained piercer can work their magic.

The new service launch has been made possible thanks to the hard work and dedication of employee, Caroline Young, who has completed a course in order to qualify as an ear-piercing technician. 

It is the third qualification that Caroline has acquired this year, having recently received Jet 1 & Jet 2 certification from the National Association of Jewellers and completing the De Beers Diamond foundation course.  Caroline is now undertaking further coloured gemstone qualifications with the Gemmological Association which sets her career in the industry on course for even greater success.

Established in 1870, Ainsworth Jewellers is run by fifth generation owner, Phil Ainsworth, and his wife, Helen Dimmick. 

“Caroline has worked extremely hard, alongside working with us full time and we’re so very proud of all her achievements,” enthused Phil.  

“For the first time in our 153-year history we’re excited to now offer an ear-piercing service and can promise a safe, quality and professional service from our new dedicated station with unrivalled customer service and after care.”

Ainsworth Jewellers’ professional piercing package includes service, solution and detailed aftercare instructions, alongside a selection of hypoallergenic metal choices, including coloured gemstones and real natural diamonds. 

Caroline’s first customer couldn’t fault the service with Kirsty Elmer from Blackburn adding: “I recently visited Ainsworth Jewellers for their ear-piercing services. I went for the seconds on my lobes and an upper ear cartilage piercing. All I can say is what a wonderful experience from start to finish! 

“Caroline made me feel so at ease and I instantly knew I was in good hands! Caroline’s attention to detail was second to none, ensuring I was comfortable the whole way through, and making sure the positioning of the piercings were right for me before proceeding… nothing was too much! I can’t recommend a better place to go to make your ears look so glamorous.”

Helen added: “Caroline’s certificates are now proudly displayed in store and we’re delighted to support her as she helps drive further opportunities in our service offering to further serve the people of Blackburn and beyond.”
