Japanese[edit]

Noun[edit]

ピアス (romaji piasu)

  1. pierced earring

Usage notes[edit]

This specifically refers to earrings which loop through the earlobe and require a piercing in the ear, and is the general term for earrings. The more similar-sounding イヤリング (iyaringu) is less commonly used and refers more specifically to earrings which do not require a piercing in the ear, by clipping to the earlobe rather than looping through it.
