Sterling silver or hypoallergenic surgical steel tribal design on 316L surgical steel 6mm or 8mm bar with 3mm screw-on ball closure secured at the back of the ear.

Style A and C - 15mm long
Style B and D - 13mm long

Which ear?
The earring is designed to follow the curve of the ear so it comes in a left and right ear version. Please select the ear that the earring is for. So if you have your left ear pierced you'd need the left ear stud (the same way as you would think of your left or right hand). The one exception to this is front/forward helix piercings where you will need to select the opposite ear for the earring to follow the curve correctly.

Post length
Cartilage studs are not adjustable so you need to choose the length of the post.
How do I work out the length?

Gauge (post/bar thickness)
1.2mm/16 gauge is the most common size ears are initially pierced with using a needle. 0.8mm or 1mm gauge may be better for piercings which have shrunk or were originally pierced with a gun.

Screw-on accessories
Compatible with 1.2mm/16 gauge externally threaded screw-on accessories.

I bought design C and it's so pretty. The shape is very defined, much prettier in person. It's simple but looks so lovely in my helix piercing. Very comfortable to wear too.

I bought the design A (6mm) for my upper ear. It looks amazing. The design is much better than it looks in the image. It has a very nice image and it looks elegant. I would strongly recommend it.

Love this one the only thing I had a problem with is that the ball falls out once in awhile when I take a shower but I usually feel it so it's fine


Metal Allergies
316L surgical steel is hypoallergenic but does contain a small amount of nickel. The nickel release rate is only around 0.02μg/cm2/week but it may cause a problem if you are very sensitive to nickel.

Which size for...

Unfortunately there's no set size for each piercing type. Please have a look at the sizing tab for information on how to work out which size you need.
