Helix Jewelry

Helix JewelryThe helix is the upper part of the outer cartilage and sits just beneath where the flap of cartilage folds over. This can also be described as an upper cartilage piercing. It is commonly pierced at a 16g with a labret or captive bead ring, unless it was pierced with a gun, in which case the piercing will be an 18g or 20g earring post. The jewelry may be changed two or three months after being pierced but may not completely heal until six months or more.


We carry a wide selection of helix piercing jewelry made from implant grade stainless steel, titanium and more. The size recommendations we give on this page will be correct for most, but not all people. We always recommend that you visit a reputable local piercing shop and have them measure you if there's any uncertainty. Just click on the style you want to browse below...
