What size do I need?

Finding your perfect conch hoop size depends on a couple of factors:
  •  Individual Anatomy: Everyones ears are different so the diameter you need will be based on your skin thickness and ear shape. Unfortunately body jewellery isn't universal, so what works for one person may not necessarily work for you.
  • Piercing Placement: A conch piercing can pierced either closer to the edge of the ear for wearing a hoop or further in the centre for a labret, so this can be the biggest factor to take into consideration when choosing the correct size for your conch piercing.

Recommended sizes

Gauge 16g (1.2mm)
Bar length for labret/barbell 6mm - 8mm
Inner diameter for hoops 10mm - 14mm


Generally conch rings range from 10mm upwards, sometimes as large as 14mm. Those with smaller ears or with a conch pierced closer to the edge of the ear may need a 10mm for a tighter fit. Ideally, you want the hoop to be comfortable but snug, with little movement or drooping.
If you prefer wearing a flat-back labret in your conch piercing, the bar length you need will depend on your cartilage thickness, however 6mm or 8mm generally works for most people.
