Finding your perfect conch hoop size depends on a couple of factors:
  •  Your 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.
  • Your piercing placement - generally a conch piercing is made just off centre inside the ear, however some piercers may make it slighter closer to the edge of the ear or further in so this can be the biggest factor to take into consideration when choosing the correct inner diameter for you.
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 nearer to the edge of the ear may require 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 labret in your conch piercing, the bar length you need will also depend on your individual cartilage thickness in this particular area. Bar lengths range from 6mm up to around 10mm, the most commonly used being 6mm or 8mm.

What jewellery is recommended?
Our Seamless Hinged Rings and labrets are perfect for conch piercings. If you're a sparkle lover, our Angel Pavé Eternity Clicker is available in 10mm, 11mm and 12mm with more sizes coming in the future.

It's usually a process of trial and error to find your perfect fit, however we always recommend visiting your local piercing studio who carried out your piercing as they will be able to measure your ear and offer some professional advice.

As you can see in the image below, I wear the 10mm Angel Clicker in my conch piercing very comfortably. It's a snug fit and doesn't droop down the ear unlike the 11mm which has a lot of movement and is too large for my individual anatomy.
