3 Reasons a Rook Piercing Should Be Your Next Piece of Ear Jewelry

Have you been wanting something other than an earlobe piercing, but nothing as extreme as a lip piercing? Well, there are plenty of piercing options still located on your ear, such as a rook piercing. There are many reasons why a rook piercing should be your next piece of ear jewelry, such as:

It’s Easy to Hide

The rook piercing goes through the innermost part of the top flap of cartilage in the ear. Due to its placement, it’s easy to hide by wearing your hair down over your ears. Therefore, if you work in a conservative environment, you can still get the piercing but keep it covered while you’re at work.

There Are Multiple Jewelry Options to Choose From

For a piercing located in such a small and tight place, it’s almost surprising that there’s such a variety of jewelry options to choose from. First, you want to make sure to pick jewelry that works best with your anatomy, as every ear is different.

However, you can select from the following types of jewelry:

  • Clickers
  • Seamless hoops
  • Captive bead rings
  • Curved barbells

If you’re looking for a more flashy piece to place in your rook, we have 14k white gold cubic zirconia captive bead rings. You can even use captive bead rings with smaller diameters to make a subtler statement.

If you’re looking for something for springtime, we have adorable bumblebee rook clickers as well as opal flower rook clickers.

For men who are considering rook piercings, you can opt for something plainer and rock a 24k gold PVD titanium curved barbell.

The bottom line is that there is an assortment of rook jewelry to fit anyone’s style.

It May Help to Relieve Stress & Anxiety

While there’s no hard-scientific proof, practitioners of auriculotherapy, or ear acupuncture, believe that a rook piercing can relieve stress and anxiety as well as aid with migraines. Essentially, practitioners of auriculotherapy believe that a rook piercing triggers a reflex or pressure point in the ear that is associated with stress and pain relief.

Regardless of the reason you decide to get a rook piercing, it makes a great ornamental addition to any ear.
