PLEASE NOTE: This item is crafted from organic material and the gauge can vary +/- up to 0.5mm
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.

I bought the 4g size, and also added a 2g to the order and I am glad I did. I love this jewelry so much, I am glad to have an extra on hand for my next size up.

I've worn this off and on for events but never for more than a few hours at a time. I've since stretched to 10g and it still fits in there nicely. The surface is very smooth and comfortable but the pointed edges can hurt if your not careful about putting it in.

This tusk is really beautiful. The mother of pearl refracts light and glows beautifully depending on viewing angle. I got lucky and one side of mine is bright white and the other side is abalone so it has 2 really awesome display surfaces. Really stoked about that because you almost never find abalone tusks, only pinchers. BAF is on point as always, can't go wrong with this one.
