The majority of our returns and exchanges are due to the wrong size being ordered. We urge you to take the time to measure your current jewelry that fits you properly to determine the correct size you need before placing an order. Please refer to below pictures and charts for typical piercing size.

Here's a tip! Just order 2 to 3 different sizes and keep the one you like and return the rest for a full refund. Simple as that.

Standard Piercing Gauge
* Most Popular Size - updated 2018
Please Note: The post(bar) thickness of 20 gauge(0.8mm) is thinner than 18 gauge(1.0mm).
Though it seemingly goes against logic, jewelry gauge sizes actually get thinner the higher the number of the gauge. An 20 gauge earring post is actually thinner than a 18 gauge earring post.
