Styling the Cartilage:
Let's explore helix earrings. Much like the tragus, there is nothing worse than an earring that is far too large to sit in this space. The helix is a smaller surface area residing close to the edge of your ear. Because of this, it’s important to play with length rather than width. A chunky, wide earring will look disproportionate and distract from the rest of the ear.
Upon initial piercing, you may start off with something more simple- maybe a small “he loves me” flower or “abundant life” trinity stud. After healing takes place, there is infinite room to explore with new shapes and textures.
Our favorite way to transform the helix piercing is by adding in an 18k gold connecting chain from the helix to a second or third hole lobe. This brings a standard ear into a whole new category, dripping with dainty class.
If you currently have a few lobe piercings and are looking for a direction to go, the helix piercing is for you. At Nina Wynn, we’ve designed timeless, combinable helix earrings made to help you glow. Combine them with all of your favorite pieces and don’t forget to have fun!
Already have a helix piercing and looking to add your next hole? We recommend adding something towards the front of your ear to add dimension and balance to your look. Think about the forward helix piercing, the daith, tragus, or maybe even the rook. We are LOVING the endless possibilities of ear curation and the way it brings our looks to life.
