Every 3 months we go through and add up all customer donations and give it to the appropriate charitities. Thanks for all your support!
In our drop-down menus for adding to cart, we show the gauge of the item you are ordering, then the length/diameter, then the ball size if it has any:

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.
  • To get larger gauge piercings you have to stretch your piercings.

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.
