All measurements are approximate:

Cobalt-chrome (CoCr) consists of chrome, cobalt and is, in this case, nickel free. It is a metal alloy that has outstanding strength and corrosion resistance. 

  • It is biocompatible, cobalt-chrome is often used for making dental and orthopedic implants, as well as finger rings.    
  • Slightly lighter than steel, which makes it well suited to wear in piercings where the weight of the jewelry is a concern.  
  • When well-polished it has a color and mirror-like sheen that resembles precious metals like white gold or platinum.   Unlike those precious metals, however, cobalt chrome's high resistance to wear means that it does not require a protective layer of rhodium plating, and it will retain its polish and premium color over time.
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.
