I have the same rule for boys or girls (so far just the one girl to worry about) but when they are old enough to bug me hard enough and understand it's going to hurt and they have to look after it they can get their ears pierced. So far DD has not asked at all but we will see how that changes when she goes to school. As for boys having their's pierced, I have no issue with it and I am pretty sure that as DH has an earring, he won't have a problem with it.
