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 1/2"  Rose gold plated (pair)
I've been waiting and saving to buy these since I stretched my ears and it was my dream to own them. I finally did it and I have no regrets so far. Well worth the price. Super shiny and detailed. Seem to be durable even after sleeping in them a couple nights. I'm happy they are closer to being a true 1/2" rather than 12 mm, which having stretchy ears, i was worried about. However, the flare is quite small & the fronts are just a touch little heavy so they lean forward in my ear just slightly. I have thin, stretchy lobes so I just put a clear o-ring on the back to make them a little more snug to keep them upright & ensure they don't fall out and they look perfect. Gorgeous eyelets.

Verified purchase 4g  Silver (pair)
Beautiful plugs but they don't fit. I ordered 2g first but they looked too big so I exchanged them for 4g. The 4's are too small and hang down funny.

Verified purchase 00g/9.5mm  Rose gold plated (pair)
Absolutely beautiful! So glad I took a chance on these ones. I wore them to our wedding and they were perfect. Very good quality and are true rose gold (they match my other rose gold jewelry perfectly). I can't sleep with them in because they poke the side of my face, but that is a very minor inconvenience compared to how amazing they are.
