All our products come in different sizes; one size we suggest to customers, which is the size that is most common and most often purchased. We also offer several alternatives.
Which size works best for me?
The easiest way is to take a piercing you are already wearing and where you know the size. Simply order the same size. In case you don’t know the metric size of your piercing, you can use the following table:
|6mm ≈ 1/4"||1.2mm = 16g|
|8mm ≈ 5/16" (Standard)||1.6mm = 14g (Standard)|
|10mm ≈ 3/8"|
|12mm ≈ 7/16"|
If you don’t know the size of the piercing you already own, you can measure it yourself, ideally with a vernier caliper. The shaft length equals the distance between the base of the two gems (balls).
If you don’t have a piercing that fits you well, you can estimate the right size on your body measuring the distance between your piercing scar and the upper edge of your navel (see picture below). The result gives you an accurate estimate of how long the shaft of the piercing you want to purchase should be. It is important that you take this measure while standing up straight. Getting help from a friend here makes things easier.
Finally, in our experience customers that want to return their piece want to do so because they chose jewelry that is too large. So, in case you did your measurements but are still unsure between two sizes, we suggest you pick the piece with the shorter shaft.
