Forward Helix and Conch

The forward helix piercing sits on the outer cartilage of the ear that is closest to the face. This piercings allows for the earring to be forward facing and is directly above the tragus. For the forward helix piercing we would recommend the Faye Wishbone Single Stud and the Trinity Single Stud. Each of these earrings feature a ball back fastening for comfort and versatility.
The conch piercing is in the centre part of the ear when looking at the ear front on. This piercing sits on a slightly thicker part of the ear and so we recommend the Dawn Single Stud, the Selene Basic Hoops and the Madame Blanche Ear Cuff for conch piercings. Both hoops and studs are suitable for this placement depending on how wide your ear is.

Upper Lobe/ Mid Helix 

 The upper lobe and mid helix piercing serves as middle ground for lower lobe and standard helix piercings. Essentially between where the ear lobe turns in cartilage, the skin here is in between soft flesh and structured cartilage. 

Many of our earrings can sit comfortably in these piercings but some of our favourites include the Faye Wishbone Single Stud, the Bee Curve Single Stud, Siria Single Hoop and the Bella Twist Huggie Hoops.

Helix 

 The helix piercing is technically any piercing on the upper cartilage of the ear but typically sits on the outer upper cartilage. Many people have multiple piercings on their helix which allows them to layer multiple studs or hoops to create a unique curated look. 

  The Piercing Collection offers a variety of earrings that are made especially for helix piercings. The Faye Wishbone Single Stud is designed to curve around the ear cartilage so it is snug on the ear. This earring features a ball back fastening for comfort. The Bee Curve Single Stud is uniquely curved to sit naturally on the ear as not to poke or prod the soft flesh. The Trinity Single Stud is perfect for everyday wear or to layer with other helix earrings. Both these studs have ball back fastenings making them suitable for long term wear. Finally our Siria Single Hoop is petite enough to make a dainty yet sparkly statement on your helix piercing.

Daith and Rook

The daith piercing sits on the ear's most inner cartilage fold. This piercing is most suited for small hoop earrings as it is quite a thick part of the ear cartilage and any earring worn in this piercing is fully exposed when worn. 

The rook piercing is also a cartilage piercing but this one sits on the fold just above the daith in the upper ear. Also above the tragus, these piercing sits between the outer ear and in the inner conch. 

We have designed a specialised latch closure infinite hoop for both the daith and rook piercings to allow for easy removal and eternal comfort. The Siria Single Hoops is a gorgeous front facing gemstone embellished hoop  that features a MIlgrain finish to frame the centre gem. Inspired by vintage engagement rings, this hoop is a timeless addition to your earring collection.
