• Gauge refers to the thickness of jewelry. We use U.S. standard wire gauge. • Common sizes for piercing are 18, 16, and 14 gauge • We carry jewelry from 20 gauge up through 2 inches and sometimes larger. • Lower numbers refer to thicker gauges • When buying jewelry to stretch, we suggest only buying the next available gauge down. For safety and proper sizing, we suggest you only stretch by going to your friendly neighborhood piercing establishment. • Do not stretch piercings with organics or acrylic. • If you buy from Tribal Rites we will insert or stretch piercings for free. Just bring your receipt and jewelry with you to one of our Colorado locations.
Balls and Ends
When measuring balls and ends we refer to diameter of the outside of the jewelry.
Weight refers to the total weight of the jewelry. Weight may be in ounces or grams
