How to Style Multiple Ear Piercings

Knowing how to style multiple ear piercings can be a daunting task. The good news is that there are no rules when it comes to showcasing your piercings. Multiple piercings can create a wealth of styling possibilities, no matter your personal taste. Simply curate a unique look with your earrings and you are sure to be the centre of attention.

There are many ways to style multiple piercings depending on the piercing you have. Here are some of the different multiple piercings you can have:

  • Lower lobe piercings - Also known as a standard piercing, lower lobe piercings are situated on the lobe which is the fleshy part at the bottom of your ear.
  • High lobe piercings - Higher lobe piercings are positioned slightly further up the ear lobe, just before where the fleshy lobe turns to cartilage.
  • Cartilage piercings - Cartilage piercings are done in the cartilage - the tough, flexible tissue of the ear.
  • Tragus piercings - Tragus piercings are a type of cartilage piercing which sit on the part that covers the opening of the ear canal. Tragus earrings can make a contemporary addition to your stack.
  • Upper lobe piercings - Upper lobe piercings are situated higher up the ear lobe, but this time towards where your ear joins your face.

If you have more than one lobe piercing, or a mixture of lobe and cartilage piercings, you can create gorgeous style combinations. Design your own stacking earrings look with our earrings designed to create a combination of accessorising options.

Mixing metals is a classic way to style multiple ear piercings. Combining the warm glow of gold jewellery with the cooler tones of sterling silver jewellery creates a stunning effect. This results in a layered effect which can bring balance and a touch of glamour to all of your outfits.

3 Different Types of Piercings

There are multiple types of piercings you can have in the ear. Each brings with it a different effect and styling opportunity. There is no right way to have more than one piercing, but here are the most popular options.

  • The Lobe: The lobe is the most popular piercing, and is often the first one people have. This is because it is the fleshiest part of the ear, and usually takes the least amount of time to heal - usually 8 to 12 weeks.
  • The Helix/ Forward Helix: The helix and forward helix are an increasingly popular type of ear piercing. Situated on the upper section of the ear in a section of cartilage. There isn't a lot of soft tissue to pierce through, so they take longer to heal - usually 6 to 12 months.
  • The Tragus: The positioning of the piercing is located in the tragus of the ear, along the inner edge of the ear, often a section of thick cartilage. The piercing itself is versatile and takes a similar amount of time to heal as the helix - usually 6 to 12 months.

No matter where you choose to have your multiple piercings, you can bring a personalised style to them. You can mix and match your earrings to fit with the piercing location, and have fun styling your jewellery looks.

Multiple Ear Piercing Ideas

Combining multiple ear piercings is effortless with the many types of earrings available. Having multiple lobe piercings means your earrings will sit lower on the ear, while having multiple cartilage piercings pulls the glamour higher up the ear. Whatever way you combine your multiple pierced ears, it's essential you reflect your own personal style.

From higher lobe earrings to upper lobe earrings you can choose to style whichever way you like. Combining multiple earrings on the lobe can result in an effortlessly chic effect.

Once you have an idea of the multiple piercings you would like, you can choose which helix earrings or lower lobe earrings you may want. It's important to remember that piercings are an individual choice, and therefore you can personalise them however you wish. Opting for a unique look can give you the extra boost of confidence no matter the occasion.

Whatever way you choose to wear more than one earring, ensure you take proper care by cleaning your jewellery. In addition, storing your precious treasures in a jewellery box can help to keep them free from dust and scratches when you're not wearing them.

10 On-Trend Earrings for Multiple Piercings

Piercings can offer the option to wear multiple earrings at once. With a wealth of designs to choose from, you never have to settle for a single look.

  • Hoops - Hoop earrings can be a bold way to style your multiple ear piercings. Choose different sizes to create a layered stack.
  • Studs - Display your stud earrings in your piercings to mix how much of a statement your jewellery makes.
  • Huggies - Huggie earrings, which are smaller hoops which hug closely to the ear, make an excellent option for multiple piercing locations.
  • Cocktails - Cocktail earrings are designed to wow, bringing a magical sparkle to your look, depending on the occasion.
  • Drops - Drop earrings make for an elegant evening - you can swap out your more everyday pieces to make a bigger impact.
  • Single earrings - A more subtle single earring in one or more of your multiple piercings showcases your personal style.
  • Climbers - Climber earrings can help to give the effect of multiple piercings on the lobe. Clinging to the outside edge of the lobe, when combined with cartilage earrings they can give an eclectic allure.
  • Labrets - Labret earrings are studs with a flat back and are very popular, especially when having multiple piercings. Our labrets are crafted from 14kt solid gold and 14kt solid white gold, boasting dainty design.
  • Engraved - Engraved jewellery allows you to create sentimental combinations with your multiple ear piercings.
  • Cuffs - Ear cuffs provide the opportunity to experiment with multiple piercing ideas, without the need for a piercing. Cuffs slide onto the cartilage of the ear, so you can perfect the style before you book your appointment. That way, you can see if you would like a helix piercing or other piercing.

No matter how you style, meaningful earrings enable you to create on-trend looks for every occasion. With our range of earrings, you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to adorning your multiple ear piercings.
