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:


Piercing measuring guide - how to measure body piercing jewellery

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.

Thickness Conversion
* 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
Length/Diameter Conversion
* 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"

I bought a 14mm one with cones for my bridge piercing and it looks wicked! Nicely made too very smooth and the cones screw on easily, you can tell they are of a high quality. I always use a pair of thin rubber gloves when unscrewing and screwing my balls or cones on, easier to open them and it makes sure that they are screwed on nice and tight to stop them coming undone :) x
