From being considered an expression of rebellion, to being seen as an element of elegance. The different types of piercings have been a real revolution since their appearance. Their boom in recent years has opened a new door of possibilities to decorate our ear, following our tastes, style and needs.
The piercing phenomenon has become democratised. From influencers to celebrities; royals and artists have included them in their ears. It is the most versatile and fun jewellery with which you can let your creativity run wild.
THE NEW TREND IN THE WORLD OF JEWELLERY
The rise of ear piercings has been revived in recent years thanks to the 'curated ears' trend: an ear design with several piercings combined in different colours, shapes and sizes. Even this small piece gives the possibility to combine silver and gold. This new aesthetic has even captivated haute couture firms, which have echoed the most disruptive trend in the world of jewellery. We could say that piercings have become a symbol of the new luxury.
TYPES OF EAR PIERCINGS
Tragus, helix, daith, lobe... There are countless types of ear piercings, depending on the area where they are placed. There are no limits to creativity and design. These small pieces that adorn our ears are more than just a simple piece of jewellery. They are a symbol of identity. That's why we've put together this brief guide to help you recognise the different types of piercings and choose the one that suits you best.
An all-time favourite. Located in the upper cartilage area of the ear. The helix piercing is an excellent choice for those looking for something discreet, yet different.
For those who prefer not to pierce this area of the ear, ear cuffs are the perfect solution. This type of piercing is very easy to put in and take out, and allows you to combine a wide variety of designs. They are also very versatile, as you can decide where to put them, regardless of the area of your ear, thus avoiding pain or the risk of infection.
The tragus piercing is the ideal alternative to the classic helix earring, gaining popularity in the last year.
The tragus area, located in the oval-shaped inner cartilage of your ear, is located right at the entrance of the ear canal. Although it is a more complicated type of piercing to place than others, it will make your earlook stronger.
For this cartilage piercing we recommend flat-locking piercings for comfort without hurting your ear. These small pieces can be combined with different shapes: stars, rays, crosses, hearts... Made of steel or 18K gold plated, with or without zirconia, flat earrings are one of the most versatile formats for your piercings.
The most classic and common piercing: the earlobe piercing. If you have at least one hole in your ear, we're sure this is it. The lobe piercing is the right one to start with this trend, especially because it is the most common hole in the ear, which we usually get when we wear our first earrings.
In this area, we not only find this type of piercing, but also in the upper and upper lobe. An ideal set of piercings to create combinations of different sizes and designs, in a simple but more than effective way.
This area of the ear is perfect for combining different sized hoop piercings. Both in 925 Sterling Silver and 18K Gold plated. You can choose them plain, with zirconia, with charms or even coloured.
Known for its ability to relieve migraines, the daith piercing has been gaining prominence in recent years. Located in the inner cartilage of the ear, in addition to its healing properties, it will add a casual style to your earlook.
For this type of piercing, as it is located in the cartilage area, we recommend earrings with a flat clasp. They provide comfort while avoiding the pain that a larger clasp, such as a butterfly clasp, can cause.
There are a variety of different types of ear piercings. Any of them are a way to add personality to your ear. Piercings are not just small pieces of jewellery. They are a real way to give free rein to your imagination and play with the jewellery you like the most. On our website, you can find a wide variety of piercings to dress up every hole in your ear.
