Antique Trim Hoop Design
The available antique finishes are created using color plated brass.
The below measurements are approximate:
- 16g and 14g measures 1-1/8" tall by 1-3/8" wide with an inner hood diameter of 5/8"
- 12g through 8g measures 1-1/4" tall by 1-1/2" wide with an inner hoop diameter of 3/4"
- 6g and 4g measures 1-1/2" tall by 1-3/4" wide with an inner hoop diameter of 3/4"
Jewelry is measured through a gauge system (see chart below). The higher the gauge number the smaller the wire is. A standard "earring" is usually 20 gauge. Jewelry gauges/sizes can vary between manufacturers. There is no universal regulation on companies to make a standard size in body jewelry. A big part of this is that some jewelry is made overseas and measured in millimeters. And in the USA jewelry is measured in inches/gauges. So many times jewelry can be anywhere from .5mm to 1mm different.
