As the owner of Pierced N Proud Body Jewellery, I understand the importance of choosing the right size jewellery for your piercings. Here is a helpful guide to assist you in selecting the perfect size jewellery.
Firstly, it is essential to know the gauge size of your piercing. Gauge refers to the thickness of the jewellery, and the larger the number, the thinner the jewellery. Standard earlobe piercings are usually 20 or 18 gauge, while cartilage piercings are typically 16 or 14 gauge .
Once you know your gauge size, you can then determine the appropriate diameter and length of your jewellery. For hoop earrings, measure the distance between the two points of your piercing and add a few millimetres to allow for movement . For straight barbells, measure the length of the piercing and add a few millimetres to ensure a comfortable fit.
It's essential to consider the style of the jewellery and the location of your piercing when selecting the appropriate size. For example, a tragus piercing typically requires a shorter barbell than a helix piercing due to its location .
In addition to the size, it's crucial to choose high-quality jewellery to ensure proper healing and reduce the risk of infection. At Pierced N Proud Body Jewellery, we pride ourselves on providing high-quality pieces that bring out your beauty and style .
In summary, selecting the right size jewellery for your piercing requires knowing your gauge size, measuring the diameter and length, considering the style and location of your piercing, and choosing high-quality jewellery.
