About threadless jewelry
Threadless jewelry is a push pin technology. The removeable end (dark grey) has a slightly curved pin. This pin straightens out when inserted into the shaft (light grey). The resulting spring tension force holds the two pieces together securely.
STEP 1 - Insert the pin about halfway into the shaft. STEP 2 - Bend the pin SLIGHTLY by hand as shown. For a tighter fit bend the pin more. For an easier fit straighten the pin out a little. STEP 3 - Push in the removable end to close. STEP 4 - To remove, pull apart both ends. If the jewelry is tight, add a slight twisting motion while you pull out the removable end.
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:
14g - 3/4 inch (5mm balls)
6g - 1/2 inch (8mm balls)
Jewelry is measured through a gauge system (see chart below). The
higher the gauge number the smaller the wire is. A standard "earring" is usually 20 gauge. Jewelry gauges/sizes can vary between manufacturers. There is no universal regulation on companies to make a standard size in body jewelry. A big part of this is that some jewelry is made overseas and measured in millimeters. And in the USA jewelry is measured in inches/gauges. So many times jewelry can be anywhere from .5mm to 1mm different. CONVERSION CHART:
9mm to 10mm
