Body Jewelry Size Chart
If you are looking for body jewelry, please take the time to review our body jewelry size chart to understand the different sizes and types of stones. Size and length refer to two different things completely. Don’t be fooled if they look alike! While size refers to the length of the part of the jewelry that will be embedded in your piercing, the length refers to the total length of the piece. Size is ultimately what you want to decide on as it should fit snugly in your piercing. Now onto gauge, gauge refers to the diameter of the piece that will be in your piercing. A larger gauge will fit into a larger piercing as you can imagine. Gauge will usually range anywhere from 1 millimeter to 1 inch.
The different types of stones we use include:
- Garnet - Red garnets are particularly stronger than most gemstones and have been used as gemstones since Ancient Rome and Ancient Egypt. Garnets signify eternal friendship and trust.
- Amethyst – Amethysts are a quartz that come in purple, a combination of red and violet. Ancient Greeks and Romans believed that amethysts helped to keep the wearer clear headed and quick witted.
- Cubic Zirconia – Cubic Zirconia is a colorless form of zirconia that is similar to diamond in appearance and refractive properties. This gemstone is a symbol of spirituality, strength, and self confidence.
- Blue Topaz - Topaz comes in a variety of colors that stretch the rainbow, although blue happens to be the most popular for people, which is why we use blue topaz. Topaz symbolizes self awareness and energy.
- Citrine – Citrine is a type of quartz with colors that vary from yellow to gold. They are a symbol of self esteem, an open mind, and clarity of thought.
- Emerald – Emeralds are a green gemstone that is a symbol for rebirth, fortune, and youth. They have been mined for as early as 330 BC and is still extensively used to this day. Most emeralds come from Colombia, Brazil, Afghanistan, and Zambia.
