MEASURING BODY JEWELRY

If you find this guide helpful Please take the time to vote Yes. Thank you!

1) Gauge - G - refers to the thickness of the body jewellery, the lower the gauge, the thicker the body jewellery.
2) Length - L - refers to the inside length between the balls for barbells.
3) Diameter - D - refers to the inside diameter for rings.

Captive Bead Rings (CBRs or BCRs) are measured at the largest inside diameter. You can wear captive rings in almost any piercing.

Circular Barbells are measured just like a CBR, at the largest inside diameter. You can also wear Circular Barbells in almost any piercing.

Plugs, Tunnels, Earlets, Eyelets, etc.. are measured by the outside diameter. This relates to the thickness of your piercing. The length of the tunnel is measured from rim to rim, which we call the wearable area.
 
Straight Barbells are very easy to measure. They are measured along the shaft between both balls.

Labrets are measured along the shaft between the flat disc and ball.

Curved (Bent) Barbells are measured by the inner length between both balls.

Nose Screws are measured on the inside of the screw from the bottom of the charm down to the bend.
Nose Bones are measured from the bottom of the charm to the top of the ball.
Nose Fishtails are measured from the bottom of the charm all the way to the end.
