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.

  • 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 have been waiting for my lobes to be big enough to to get a pair of these and I'm in love with them! I knew that I wouldn't like the facets unless the plugs were big enough for there to be a solid flat section right in the front, otherwise it wouldn't really have that crystal cut chandelier effect. I'm glad I waited and am now at the size I want to stay and the 1/2" size in these is perfect! I'm they just get even better looking the larger they get from here so if you're on the fence just do it!

I'll just say that I love faceted plugs. These are extra fantastic, though, because they're teardrop shaped too. What's not to love?! I wish they came in cloudy quartz... I'd be all over those.

Slightly small wearable area, but gorgeous overall. The faceted side reflects light and has dimension both indoors and outdoors.

These are beautiful! I love the shape & fit. I have the same style in black & Polaris & if they come out with more colors, I'd buy them too!
