Cartilage piercings are difficult to stretch and are most often kept at small sizes, such as 1.2mm or 1.6mm. Check out our fantastic range of fake ear plugs that can be worn in your cartilage piercing to create the illusion of a stretched cartilage piercing!
Whether you have a tragus, helix, conch or pina piercing, ear cartilage studs are a real must-have. These little ear studs are great for keeping cartilage piercings healthy, they are comfy to wear and come in a huge choice of cool designs.
Most ear cartilage studs are actually labret studs, which have a flat back-plate. This makes them very comfortable because the back of the stud will not poke or irritate your skin. Another advantage is that the front of these studs screws on, so they canâ€™t fall out of the piercing. This great if you have an active lifestyle, wear headphones or hats that could brush a regular earring out of your ear. There are many different types of ear cartilage studs but Iâ€™ve collected some of my favourites below.
Plain Ear Cartilage Studs
These plain ear cartilage studs are simple and stylish. They look great and are unlikely to catch on clothing or yet tangled up in long hair. I recommend these studs for work and smart occasions, or if your ear cartilage piercing is easily irritated. The smooth shape of these studs means that they wonâ€™t get caught on things or accidentally knocked â€“ giving your piercing the chance to heal properly.
