7 Trendy Ear Piercings for all times

7 Trendy Ear Piercings for all times

Back in the day, piercing ears were believed to activate press points for clarity and insight. In the years that followed, it became the most popular body part to flaunt wealth.

In this special podcast by Smith Jewels, we talk about the variety of ear piercings that are becoming most common along with a few evergreen ones:

1.Lobe – The ear lobe hole, known to have many benefits related to our overall physical being. The most basic type, it helps you hold your larger ear studs and chandeliers styled for special occasions. 

2.Followed by the second lobe- This piercing is placed right above the lobe piercing and  looks coolest when styled with hugging jewels, and small studs.

3.High lobe is the third and last before the cartilage or the bone in the ear starts. Styled with small studs or tiny rings, it became quite a statement in the '80s.

4.A Helix piercing can be placed anywhere on the upper outer cartilage of the ear. It is often the first choice when moving from the lobe. But definitely not for the faint-hearted.

5. Found in a slightly awkward position, Daith piercing is usually styled with a hoop that hugs the cartilage on the inside of your ear. While it requires a skilled piercer, it is rumoured to help alleviate migraines. 

6.Tragus which means "ouch" in Greek, is yet another painful cartilage piercing.

Spotted on the tiny flap partially covering the ear canal on the innermost part. 

This piercing can add detail to any curated ear, especially with a pretty stud or snug hoop.

It became extremely popular amongst youngsters after the American pop star Rihanna got one.

 Last but not the least popular is Conch, at number

7. Located in the middle portion of your ear cartilage, resembles the spiral shell of the same name. It's pretty versatile and can be pierced with a stud for a subtle effect, a double stud (if you're feeling brave), or even a cuff that can hug its way around the edge of your ear. Most commonly seen on women from Kashmir in India, it signifies marriage for Kashmiri women. 


Quick Tip : Although piercings take six to eight weeks to heal, you can change the jewellery only after three months of healing time.


But wait, what if you can shop for alternate clip-on and ear cuffs to look cool. We will help bejewel your ears with some trendy alternatives from the handcrafted silver house of Smith Jewels
