Since the ear has different hills and valleys, jewelry needs to handle a variety of shapes and angles.
Today I am addressing the Tragus, which is at the entrance of the ear. You can see the exact location of the Tragus here: wikipedia tragus link
In America the standard piercing jewelry, when the tragus is first pierced, is a 16 gauge captive bead ring. The ring allows the customer to properly clean the piercing, as it heals.
Once the piercing has healed, there is a variety of jewelry styles that can be worn in this location.
Of course the customer can stay with the captive bead ring, and they can find a rainbow of color options beyond the surgical steel.
Other options, for the Tragus are:
A Segment Ring with No Ball (shown in black with the segment removed):
Labret Body Jewelry, known for lip and Monroe piercings:
Helix Body Jewelry:
Tragus Body Jewelry (made only for the tragus):
Or a straight barbell, with or without a dangle:
