Conch Size Guide

Posted by Langen Mila on

Conch might sound like a French dessert name, but it is sure to ring your fashion-conscious ear alarm bells. What is the meaning of "conch"? The conch shell is actually the part of the ear that it comes from. 

What Is a Conch Piercing Jewelry

The conch can be divided into two parts: the inner, which is suitable for most studs, and the outside conch that allows for both hoops and studs. It is possible to be nervous about having your conch pierced as both the inner and outer parts are made of solid cartilage.

What Size do I Need

Conch rings typically measure between 10 and 12mm in diameter, but can sometimes reach 14mm. For a snug fit, those with smaller ears or conchs pierced nearer the edge of their ears may require a 10mm. Others will need a larger size.

You can wear a piercing labret, or screw back studs if you prefer.6mm and 8mm bar will be suitable for most people.

How to Measure Your Ear for Perfect Fit

 

Although there are recommended conch sizes, you need to measure your own ear since everyone’s ear is different. Follow the instruction and find the size perfect for you.

Hoops:

1.Use a ruler to measure distance from the hole to the edge of your ear.

2.Add 1mm for snug fitting and 2mm for loose fitting.

Bars:

1.Insert a standard earring post into your piercing.

2.Mark off on the post on where you want the earring post to fit.

3.Upon removing, measure that length with a ruler.

4.Go a little longer in length so you don’t put undue pressure on your piercing.
