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
  • Gauge - This is the thickness of the ring itself.
  • Diameter/Length - Measure directly across the inside center of the ring.

Verified purchase 7/8"  Pluto (pair)
Some of the prettiest plugs I have, I love the blue hues in the background. I get lots of compliments on these when I wear them. The faux metorites in my pair were very diff shapes/sizes which would be my only complaint but i usually just wear them mismatched with other Gorilla Glass I have. Thanks Baf!

Verified purchase 5/8"  Pluto (pair)
WOW!! I was excited the second I saw these posted. I have been lusting after Pluto planet plugs since they were released, but never made the leap to buy. I'm glad I waited, because these are incredible! The 'meteorite' adds that extra element to really bring the Pluto background to life, as it's one of the more subdued planet designs. As usual, these are far more stunning in person. Pictures just don't capture how dynamic these GWS pieces can be. They wonderfully mimic the view you might have if you were drifting by Pluto, watching a meteorite in the horizon. Now, if only they offered these in Venus and nebula... and Andromeda... and just all of them!
