In the realm of body art, the daith (pronounced “doth”) ear piercing has emerged as a captivating and versatile piercing option. It’s hidden in the inner folds of ear cartilage, providing an opportunity to express yourself with bold jewelry.
More specifically, the daith is pierced through the fold of cartilage that sits just above the ear canal, near the inner conch of the ear. Typically, your piercer will choose a daith ring or hoop as your starter jewelry to accommodate for any swelling and/or movement. Check out our daith piercing aftercare guide for more details on this process.
After your initial healing period, you can truly unlock the potential of the daith by choosing the right body jewelry. In this blog, we’ll explore the allure of daith piercings and help you navigate a plethora of jewelry styles—from minimalist to abstract to gothic—to adorn this piercing with precision and style.
Minimalist Daith Jewelry Styles
Minimalism is just as it sounds: minimal. It’s a style of body jewelry that has gained immense popularity because it’s both understated and elegant. Minimalist designs are versatile, effortlessly complementing a wide range of personal styles—whether you're dressing up or simply hanging out.

For the daith specifically, minimalist daith jewelry can include simple captive bead rings (CBRs), sleek seamless hoops, and delicate hinged rings.
Bohemian and/or Nature-Inspired Daith Jewelry
This style of body jewelry captures the beauty of nature in a wearable form. The bohemian style is all about freedom, wanderlust, and loving the earth, which is why you’ll find such body jewelry crafted with natural materials like wood, gemstones, and/or intricate metalwork.
In any case, bohemian daith jewelry adorns the ear with a touch of enchanting, personal charm through flora, fauna, celestial bodies (like the moon!), and so much more.
Geometric and Abstract Daith Jewelry
These jewelry designs are similar to minimalism, but with an edgy twist. Geometric and/or abstract body jewelry is perfect for those seeking a stylish and original look that evokes a sense of individuality.

This style of daith jewelry features clean lines, innovative shapes, and intricate patterns to add a bold, avant-garde dimension to your daith piercing. From triangles and hexagons to abstract spirals to geometric gems, abstract daith jewelry lends itself to the unconventional.
Vintage and Antique Daith Jewelry
Do you often find yourself daydreaming about the “good ‘ol days”? Vintage-inspired body jewelry is designed to evoke such a feeling. With nostalgic and romantic elements, such jewelry harkens back to an era where craftsmanship was paramount and aesthetics were steeped in tradition.
While our “antique” daith jewelry might not actually be antique, our designs pay homage to the aesthetic, adding a touch of classic elegance through unique filigree designs, art deco and art nouveau styles, and vintage gemstone clusters.
Gothic and Edgy Daith Jewelry
For those who embrace non-conformity and individuality, this jewelry style is tops. Its striking and rebellious aesthetic resonates with anyone drawn to the mysterious, the macabre, or the darker aspects of art and culture.
Gothic and edgy daith jewelry contributes to a bold, alternative style, allowing the wearer to make a statement that’s uniquely their own. In the daith, this style adds an element of mystique through skulls, crosses, and spikes, dark gemstones and all-black materials, and steampunk-inspired pieces.
Mix-and-Match Daith Jewelry Trends
Can’t land on just one? Fortunately, combining elements of all these options is a trend in and of itself. The beauty lies in the boundless creativity it offers when curating a truly unique and personalized aesthetic.
This mix-and-match approach allows you to experiment with your own self expression. Whether it's a fusion of bohemian and minimalist styles, mixing metals, or artfully coordinating your daith jewelry with your other ear piercings, the possibilities are endless.
