Sizing

We want to make sure that you get what you’re looking for so it is advisable that you go through product description page and read carefully product dimension before placing the order.
You can measure a piece of paper by a ruler to get an idea of product sizing.
Our products are handmade so there may be slight difference what written under product description but this is not something usual.
Or you can reach out to us about exact size of the product.

The gauge refers how thick your jewelry shaft is. Jewelry shaft gets thicker the smaller the number gets.
For example, an 18 gauge nose stud is thicker than a 22 gauge nose stud;
An 16 gauge nose stud is thicker than an 18 gauge nose stud.
You will see gauge written like this: 20G, 20g, and 20 gauges.
If you don't know which gauge you wear you may be able to measure it at home or you can reach out to nose piercer to get exact size that you looking for.

As long as you are wearing the correct gauge of jewelry in your piercing, just use a caliper to measure how thick (big around) your jewelry is.
You cannot measure gauge accurately with a ruler. If you do not have a caliper asks your piercer for help.

Here is AWG (American Wire Gauge) Measurements:
22 gauge = 0.64mm
20 gauge = 0.81mm
18 gauge = 1.02mm
16 gauge = 1.30mm

The inner diameter of a hoop refers to the measurement that is taken in a straight line from inside edge to inside edge. All of the jewelry that I make is measured using the inner diameter.
I use 8mm that ‘fits most’, 6mm that is ‘small’, 12mm that is ‘large’, in case of any specific measurement, please reach out to us after placing the order or leave us a note with your order.

20gauge is standard size that we recommend you on our buyer’s experience. Most of buyer’s prefers 20g if they are uncertain about the wire gauge size.
It is advisable if you don’t know; you can compare to an nose ring, or ask your piercer.

We offer the following nostril piercing styles:

Left Screw:
If you have left side nose pierced, it is highly recommended to go for left screw.

Right Screw:
If you have right side nose pierced, it is highly recommended to go for right screw.

L Shape:

The L-shape nose stud is ‘bent and shaped like an L’, hence the name. Thanks to its shape, once inserted, it firmly sits against your nostril. L-shape nose studs are usually used for new piercings - as they are easier to put in - but are also the best option for those who often change nose jewelry.

We offer two sub-options for L-Shape.
Upper L Shape :
The end of shaft are turn in upper side of your nose hence the name.
Lower L Shape :
The end of shaft are turn in lower side of your nose hence the name.

Back Screw:
This style has screw in the back side to hold the stud, You can screw your stud easily through it into your nose.

Bone End:
Nose bone studs are straight barbells that normally have a decorative piece on one end, and a small ball on the other end to keep the jewelry in place.

Straight Fishtail: The purpose of a fishtail nose ring is to create a ring that can be custom fit for your nose.
The 19mm bar itself obviously won't fit as is, so you'll take the nose ring into your piercer.
A piercer will use a device to measure your nose, and then bend the metal bar to fit your nostril based on those measurements.

Prodcut & Material Care

Sterling silver tarnishes. There is no avoiding it entirely. Keeping your silver clean is much easier than trying to clean it after it has darkened.
However we do premium quality plating that increase it's life & makes it rust, tarnish free and water friendly.

Here are some tips:
If it's a piece you don't wear all the time, keep it in the pouch it came in and store it in a dark place, This helps prevent scratching and maintain color for vermeil and silver pieces. This minimize the oxidization (tarnish).
It's higly recommended that remove your jewelry when applying scents, lotions, sprays and in the shower.
If you do wear it all the time, you will need to periodically clean it. This can be done by purchasing a little pot of silver jewelry cleaner from your local drug or department jewelry counter, or by purchasing a cleaning cloth.
Grocery stores also carry a product called "Silvo" that works well.
There are also numerous articles on the internet with home cleaning methods that may be worth checking out.

The material our jewelry is made out of varies depending on its style and the body part it accessorizes. Please check the item description to know more about the description of materials, and based on that you can figure out the lifespan of our jewelry.

All of our nose jewelry is 100% tarnish free and waterproof. They all are plated with premium quality micron plating and made with hypoallergenic and durable metals.
Over the period of a few years after constant contact with Harsh liquids such as perfumes or heavily scented soaps, the shine may fade on these items, but they will never rust or leave a green cast.

Keloids and Nose Bumps are common for those who shift/change their jewelry frequently, but don’t clean it enough.
Please consult with your piercer or google ways to clean your piercing.
Everyone’s skin is different and may have to go through different processes.

If you got nose bump or sore inside your nose, you can wear a small stick of azadirachta indica.
The antiseptic properties of azadirachta indica will create a powerful pack that'll help to heal nose bump or sore.
