Your eyebrows frame your face and give it some definition, so why not embellish them and make them stand out? Well-chosen eyebrow jewelry will give a cute, unique style to your look.

It’s typically located just past the arch of the eyebrow. It can be a vertical or horizontal surface piercing for which the needle goes through the bottom and top of the eyebrow. Unfortunately, this will permanently scar your face, so you should put some thought into it before going under the needle.

Opt for elegant jewelry designs for a classy look. From curved barbells to captive rings and gem crystals, there’s an eyebrow jewelry that will surely fit your taste. If you’ve got a very flat brow, you may opt for a straight barbell. If you want a more elaborate style of jewelry, a twister spiral ring with opal, crystal, or pearl balls on each end will make a big difference to your overall look.

2. Multiple Earlobe Piercing

A single earlobe piercing is the most popular type of body piercing but add a few more piercings to create your own unique curated look. Multiple earlobe piercings might have some radical origins, but bejeweled crystals, gold hoops, and classic pearls will make everything sophisticated. The more lobe piercings you have, the more you can play with different jewelry styles.

3. Conch Piercing

The conch piercing refers to the cartilage of the outer part of your ear, resembling a conch shell. In this piercing, you may choose between the inner conch and outer conch. Most of the time, the ideal spot will depend on your cartilage anatomy. Some can even go for double or triple conch piercings, which is great for stacking earrings.

A stud earring with a ball or flat disc backing is the best jewelry for the inner conch piercing. On the other hand, a large hoop around the edge of the ear looks best for outer conch piercing. It’s  better to start with a stud for the first six months or so to help the piercing heal.

If you’re tired of seeing the same minimalist jewelry, this piercing is perfect for you, as you can easily dress it up or down with rhinestones or curved clusters.

4. Helix Piercing

One of the most famous cartilage piercings, helix is the spot along the top curve of the ear. It’s a nice addition to your pierced lobes, and perfect for hoop and stud earrings. However, the beauty of the piercing will depend on the decorative jewelry and the spacing of the jewelry —double or triple helix piercings must be spaced apart.

Depending on your taste, you can choose from captive bead rings, hoops, barbells, labret studs, or even cuff-like earrings.

5. Forward Helix

While the typical helix piercing is located along the outer curve of the ear, the forward helix is located along the front of the ear where the curve ends. It’s a stylish and cuter version of the cartilage piercing, bringing the jewelry closer to your face.

If you love the appeal of ornate rings, double hoops, and clusters of studs, this might be perfect for you. When it comes to this piercing, a seamless hoop or small helix stud with flat disc backing is often the best jewelry choice.

6. Auricle Piercing

Studs are flattering, along with dainty hoops and bejeweled earrings. There are also fake auricle cuffs if you’re not quite ready to commit to the piercing.

7. Rook Piercing

Professionals usually use a labret stud for this piercing. The stud’s flat back rests inside the mouth, and its decorative end, like a bead or gem, shows on the outside. Because of its close location to the mouth, keeping up with oral hygiene and following aftercare advice is vital to heal well and avoid problems.

14. Labret Piercing
