Gold Plated Internally Threaded Large Gauge Barbell
|Bars with bling! These gold plated large gauge straight barbells will certainly get noticed. They are internally threaded, this means that the balls have the thread on them which is inserted into a hole in the end of the barbell. Internally threaded body jewellery is very popular, particularly in large gauge piercings as the thread will not snag or catch when the jewellery is inserted into the piercing. |
The bars are made out of 316L Surgical Steel which has been Gold Plated in house with 22 Karat gold plate and then polished so they are nice and shiny.
They are available in the following sizes:
2mm ==>8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22mm
2.4mm ==>8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22mm
3.2mm ==>8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22mm
4mm ==>8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22mm
5mm ==>8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22mm
6mm ==>8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22mm
8mm ==>8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22mm
Measuring Your Piercing - Jewellery Measuring Guide
Wearing the correct size of body jewellery is very important. If you wear a size that is too small it could easily irritate or hurt your piercing. If your jewellery is too big it can easily catch your clothes resulting in a damaged piercing.
The measurements to consider with each piece of jewellery are as follows:
Length / Diameter of the jewellery. (A / B in the diagram above)
The above example pictures show you the measurements that you need to take for a Banana Bar, a Ball Closure Ring (BCR), a Barbell and a Labret. Only measure a piece of jewellery that currently fits you correctly.
An alternative method is to directly measure your piercing between both holes using a ruler, although this can sometimes be difficult on your own.
Thickness / Gauge of the jewellery (C in the diagram)
The most common sizes are as follows:
* Navel, Tongue and Nipple jewellery - 1.6mm (or 14 Gauge)
* Eyebrow - 1.2mm (16 Gauge)
* Nose - 1.0mm (18 Gauge)
* Labret piercings are usualy either 1.2mm (16 Gauge) or 1.6mm (14 Gauge)
These are the the standard thicknesses of body jewellery that we sell, so unless you have an unusual piercing, you do not have to worry about this measurement.
We often get asked what are the sizes of jewellery in my country. In Europe thickness is shown in mm but in other parts of the world people use gauge. The following table should help you convert the sizes.
* 1mm = 18 gauge
* 1.2mm = 16 gauge
* 1.6mm = 14 gauge
* 2mm = 12 gauge
* 2.4mm = 10 gauge
* 3.2mm = 8 gauge
* 4mm = 6 gauge
* 5mm = 4 gauge
* 6mm = 2 gauge
* 8mm = 0 gauge
* 6mm = 1/4"
* 8mm = 5/16"
* 10mm = 3/8"
* 11mm = 7/16"
* 12mm = 1/2"
* 14mm = 9/16"
* 16mm = 5/8"
* 18mm = 11/16"
* 19mm = 3/4"
* 21mm 13/16"
