Steel Pinchers with Divet
These stainless steel pinchers are casted with a top divet for secure wearing. The outside of divet measures slightly larger than the gauge size and acts as a flare when inserting.
The below measurements are approximate:
- The 7mm pinchers have a wearable area that measures 7mm wide
- 5/16" pinchers have a wearable area that measures 8mm wide
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.CONVERSION CHART:
