Daith Piercing Shopping Guide

The daith piercing is an elegant and subtle little ear piercing with increasing popularity. In this shopping guide we inform you about the various piercing types you could wear on it, and the sizes you might need.

Continue reading to find out more about the materials used, and much more.

Standard Daith Piercing Sizes

We have a large collection of cartilage jewellery, but not every piece is a perfect fit for your daith piercing. As the daith piercing is relatively small compared to other ear piercings, a smaller design can be a better fit.

The standard bar thickness for a daith piercing is 1.2 mm, with a standard bar length of 6 mm. The most common sizes for balls and stones are 3 mm to 4 mm.


Daith Hoops and Rings

Hoops and rings are an excellent match for daith piercings. We recommend choosing smaller sizes for this delicate piercing.

When searching for daith rings, the best fit can be a 1.2 mm thickness and a diameter of 6 mm. If you want a larger ring, you could consider one with a diameter of 8 mm.


Other Daith Jewellery

Despite how small a daith piercing usually is, there are plenty of possibilities for creativity.

We recommend the two most common piercing types for a daith piercing. You can also consider wearing traditional earrings in your daith. Please note that earring bars are thinner than piercing bars.


One of the most obvious choices for your daith piercing is a curved barbell. You can order a curved barbell in the standard sizes mentioned earlier. Straight barbells are also suitable but mostly recommended for a plain look.


Labret studs are another piercing type well worth considering. People praise this design as it allows for the ball to be screwed on from the front. Labrets are also referred to as 'flat backed earrings'. The flat back is known to be quite comfortable while you sleep.
