Nose Ring Sizing: How to Get a Perfect Fit
Step 1: Find Your Gauge
The “gauge" of body jewelry refers to the thickness of the item, which directly correlates to the needle size that is used to pierce you.
Everyone's nose is different; your local piercing professional will choose an appropriate size gauge to accommodate the size and shape of your nose.
Since there are so many differently sized noses, there are also several different gauge sizes made to suit everyone's unique anatomy and aesthetic.
The gauge of the item is extremely important to the fit of the item. Standard sizing for nose rings is normally a 20 gauge;
this means the thickness of the portion that goes through the piercing is approximately 0.8 millimeters.
Step 2: Find Your Proper Diameter
"Diameter" is the distance between the inside edges of the nose hoop at its largest point. For nose hoops, the diameter is measured instead of the length.
Depending on how high up your piercing is and how large or small your nostril is, an incorrect diameter can end up looking a little funky.
A properly measured diameter will look the most aesthetically pleasing, so it's very important to measure correctly!
The two most common diameter sizes for nose hoops are 5/16″ (8mm) and 3/8″ (10mm). Individuals with larger noses or with large-gauge
nose piercings may need rings with a larger diameter size. In this case, if possible, measuring a hoop that already fits can be a good benchmark.
If you need a size that isn’t commonly sold on our site, visit your local professional piercer.
They will measure both your jewelry and your nose and can recommend a size that will work for you.
