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 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

This is my everyday philtrum piece, the smaller 2.5 ball is super comfortable, it doesn't clank against my teeth like a 3mm. It's the quality you expect for the price, but I love it. My only problem is that the front threaded end does come loose quite often, I'm playing with it constantly so I can notice and fix it but I can see it getting lost if you're not thinking about it.

I really like the fact that this barbell screws at the front. It's way easier to see what you are doing especially with these tiny items. That being said I still had a bit of a struggle screwing the top back on because the thread is super small but with some latex gloves you'll get more grip and it will make it quite a bit easier.
