Pick the right size Earring/body jewelry for your piercings

Some people's ears naturally stretch over time due to the wearing of large or heavy jewelry. Whether your ears are stretched naturally, professionally,  or by yourself,  you can use the size chart above to determine what size will work for you.

How to Gauge Your Ears

1. Purchase a pair of ear rings whose post is a size bigger than your ear piercing size. If your present gauge is 0.8 mm, then buy an earring pair with 1.0 mm gauge.
2. Soak the ear piercing in warm water with an antibacterial soap.This will relax and clean your lobes, making gauging a little easier.
3. Choose the ear lobe you'll start with. Take one earring and insert it gently into the ear piercing.
4. Follow these same steps for your other ear.
