| These barbells are very versatile and can be worn in many different piercings, they are made out of Grade 23 Titanium and internally threaded (which means that the ball and flower have a thread which is screwed into the hole in the barbell). Internally threaded jewellery is very popular because it is easy to insert into piercings and less likely to cause any irritation when fitted because the whole bar is smooth.
The bars are available in a choice of Titanium colours - Highly Polished, Bronze, Brown, Ice Blue, Blue, Yellow, Peach, Pink, Purple, 2 Tone Purple Blue, Teal, Green or Rainbow
The bar is 1.6mm (14 gauge) and available in 6mm through to 40mm lengths so can be worn in industrial or scaffold piercings.
The synthetic Opal flower looks stunning in the Titanium setting and it measures 6.7mm across.
Please note that these colours are shown to give an indication of the colour of the jewellery but slight colour variations do occur occasionally. Not all designs are available in all colours.
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.
| 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"
