Cochlear implant jewellery is trending! Here are picks that Tasha Ghouri would approve of | Shopping

Love Island 2022 has given us plenty to ponder. Ikenna’s fangs, “relationship tests”, Ekin-de enemies for lovers. Most importantly, he introduced us to the island’s first deaf contestant, Tasha Ghouri.

After deaf actress Rose Ayling-Ellis lifted the Strictly glitterball trophy with our favorite Italian Giovanni Pernice (sorry Davide) in 2021 – it’s exciting to see more representation from the deaf community with Tasha. In addition to creating space for conversations about hearing loss, Tasha is trending. So when we heard that cochlear implant jewelry was a thing, we were over the moon.

Cochlear implants and hearing aid jewelry are things Tasha wouldn’t vibrate with. They’re basically jewelry that clips onto hearing aids, with added charms and bling if you’re in the mood. It really is a way, as Tasha would say, to show off your superpower. Funnily enough, in 2021, before we knew her on Love Island, Tasha went viral for being the first ASOS model to wear a hearing aid on the site. Who knew she would be on our TV screens a year later.

Before we get into our picks of the best cochlear implant and hearing aid jewelry you can buy online, let’s find out a bit about Tasha’s disability and what it means to her in the villa.

Is Tasha Ghouri deaf?

Yes, she was born deaf (called sensory loss), so she and her family learned sign language from the start. However, when she was older, she received a cochlear implant, which replicates the tiny hairs in the cochlea that stimulate fluid. These hairs send messages to the brain and translate sounds into words. Basically, science is enlightened.

What is the difference between a cochlear implant and a hearing aid?

So, a hearing aid serves to amplify sound, say if you are hard of hearing. However, a cochlear implant is necessary if you are completely deaf because if you are born without the ability to hear, the brain does not learn to translate noise into words. The cochlear implant is able to translate, thanks to its intelligent computer system. It’s all built into that little thing in Tasha’s ear. Awesome stuff.

But if you think your hearing aid looks a little bland, who says you can’t glamorize your implant? Anything can be fashionable, darling. 💅 For example, we love seeing Tasha matching her implant to her outfit in this Instagram post, celebrating one of her many dance gigs.

Here are our top picks for the best hearing aid and cochlear implant jewelry Tasha would approve of.
