Gauge

The Gauge is a measurement used to measure the thickness of a piece of jewellery, corresponding to the thickness of your piercing.

Gauges can be converted into millimeters or inches, to help people of different nationalities to recognise different types of measurement.

Here is a conversion chart that will help with gauge sizes. Our gauge conversion chart may be located on the right hand side of the screen, under 'Jewellery Essentials'.
