Measuring Body Jewellery

It is much easier to measure the jewellery than the piecing! To find the correct size take a piece of jewellery that fits your customer's piecing and measure as shown below.  Remember all measurements should be taken with a ruler in a straight line, never measure along the curve and never include the balls.  

The above example photos show how to measure both a Banana Bar and a Ball Closure Ring (BCR).  An alternative method is to directly measure your piercing between both holes using a ruler, although this can sometimes be difficult on your own.

Jewellery Sizes

In Europe thickness is shown in mm but in other parts of the world people use gauge. The following table should help you understand the difference.
