PLEASE NOTE:
This item requires priority mail shipping (USA only) or UPS shipping due to its weight, fragility, or odd shape. Free shipping is excluded from this product.
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

  • Diameter/Length - Measure directly across the inside center of the ring.

The pliers are great but their easier to use when your adjusting the ring before putting it in. I tried to use it to close my 10g septum ring while wearing it and it was surprisingly difficult enough that I had to get pliers from my toolbox.

I love these. For someone like me who changes their jewelry out frequently they're a must have. They make the process so much easier and prevent damage to the piercings. I only wish I had known about these sooner. :-)

Works really well. I found these useful when trying to straighten out older rings that have been twisted out of shape.
