NOTE: These taper at an angle from the bead. So the gauge listed is the thickest *wearable* part of the captive.
In our drop-down menus for adding to cart, we show the gauge of the item you are ordering, then the length/diameter, then the ball size if it has any:

Jewelry is measured through a gauge system (conversion chart below). The higher the gauge number the smaller the wire is. For reference, a standard "earring" is usually 20 gauge. Jewelry gauges can vary between manufacturers. There is no universal regulation on companies to make a standard size in body jewelry. This is because some jewelry is made outside of the USA and measured in millimeters. And in the USA jewelry is measured in inches.

Rings

Rings are an essential item that can be worn in many piercings. They come in various styles:
  • Captive bead rings - These use tension to hold a bead in place.
  • Clickers - These use a hinge to open and close the ring.
  • Segment rings - These have a "segment" that comes completely out of the jewelry similar to removing a bead. But it looks like a completely seamless piece of jewelry.
  • Seamless rings - These rings require bending to open & close.
How to measure rings

Verified purchase 14g 12mm 6mm bead
Overall not bad, but the measurements of the wearable area are not quite accurate. Not because I recieved the wrong size, they're just manufactured that way. I ordered a 14g and it's a tad too thick to fit a 14g hole but it should be fine with a bit of stretching.

The gauging size wasn't quite even, a little bigger than a 14 but love the design.

Verified purchase 14g 12mm 6mm bead
Looks like I have a ninja star in my ear, which is absolutely great in itself! Tried the 6mm ball 14g one in my conch piercing both with the ball in front and in back. In my opinion, the ball in front makes the piece look cluttered so I prefer the ball in the back. The ball is ridiculously secure so no worries about it falling out whatsoever. On that note, I had to lay down to remove it so I didn't take out anyone's eye. Super awesome piece; would definitely recommend it.

A sturdy piece! The balls were a bit difficult to get on, seeing as the ends are pointed, but not impossible! Very cool looking worn facing forward or backward! Nice purchase for the price!

Verified purchase 16g 10mm 6mm bead
I got this in a 16g and I found it to be quite cheap looking. The holes aren't very big and they look sloppy as well. This might just be because I got it in the smallest gauge though, it might look better in bigger gauges.
