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

I have ordered this product twice because I have lost my jewelry before. I can honestly say this piece is the best between comfort and subtlety. It flips up quite nicely with out scratching the inside of you nose and doesn't slip out very easily. I highly recommend this retainer for a comfortable every day wear.

It was comfortable but due to its shape it fell out and now has been claimed by the body jewlery gods to never be found again.

I was looking for a retainer made of a quality material. love the color of black niobium- basically a shiny gunmetal type of shade. If your septum is pierced fairy high up like mine, you might just get the little feet sticking out. This is perfect for my purposes of flipping it up and hiding at work or just wearing something comfy. I can hardly tell that it is in. The circular barbell I was pierced with kept falling back down partially after I'd try flipping it up, so something like this is great if you have an issue flipping larger jewelry as well.
