This is a custom sized 22 Gauge Silver Nose ring hoop. A slender wire, subtle and elegant nose ring; custom made to fit your nose- exactly the way you want! I know how hard it is to find the right sized nose ring- that's why I offer these hoops in either DIY or CUSTOM sized options.

THIS IS THE CUSTOM SIZE HOOP OPTION- choose the size which you desire from the list of sized listed in this listing. (Available in sizes 4 to 14 millimeters)

(NOTE: for the hoops with DIY sizing instructions look here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/82982832/dainty-and-snug-22-gauge-solid-sterling?ref=shop_home_active_13 )

DIAMETER means the measurement across the entire mid point of the circle. These hoops are Measured from the inside edges of the wire circle.

NOTE on snugness: Even if you want a SNUG fit, a too snug hoop will pull on your piercing and eventually irritate it...remember to add a millimeter to your measurement when you cut it, otherwise you may end up with a too small hoop.

Re: WIRE Thickness/Flexibility :
22 gauge is the measurement for the wire thickness- about the same as a sewing needle. This gauge is popular because of it's subtlety and flexibility, which can be an asset when you are putting in or taking out your hoop...

Yes, hoops can bend out of shape if they are not opened and closed properly This is why with each order I send important detailed information sheets which illustrate:
1) how I recommend to properly OPEN and CLOSE your hoop (very important)
2) how to easily RESHAPE YOUR HOOP if it become distorted.
3) easy DIY custom SIZING INSTRUCTIONS ( I sent with all nose hoop orders)
4) a VIDEO link with "how to size" info using basic nail care tools.

************************************************************************************************
Important Notes for newbie hoop wearers:
If you are used to a thinner gauge for your nose ring or are not used to wearing hoops you may want to try a 22 gauge dainty hoop first. 22 Gauge is slightly thinner, which may be more comfortable for anyone who is not used to wearing a nose hoop.
You will find the 22 gauge nose hoop listed in my shop here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/82982832/dainty-and-snug-22-gauge-silver-nose

Funky, chunky little silver skulls on post earrings. Handmade and a tad rustic, these earrings feature a cool little grinning skull stamped into a thick disc of sterling silver. This is the listing for a PAIR (two) skull earrings, they are also sold as single earring/nose ring (see link to single listing below)

Gender neutral, Guys, Gals, Dudes, Chicks, Men, Women, Boys, Girls etc...these cool little stud earrings are great for anyone who likes skulls!

How they are made:
Made by hammering out a cast sphere of sterling silver into a small thick disc that's about 6-8mm in diameter (and about 1.5 mm thick) I then carefully hand stamp the design onto the little chunky disc. To finish, I solder on medium weight 20 gauge ear posts which I then spring harden, which straightens and strengthens the silver post.

Backed by comfortable and secure rubber stoppers. (I send extra stoppers, because I know they can get misplaced easily...at least I know that I tend to misplace them lol)

I make these as I make all the other work in this shop; by hand and with attention to quality and detail. Because they are handmade and forged, allow for variations of size and placement of stamped skull. The size of the little discs range from 6-8 mm diameter. The stamping will always be complete, allow for the design to possibly be slightly off center on the irregular circle of the discs.

Please Note:
This is for a Pair (2) of earrings- I also sell these as a single earring, here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/249918474/single-grinning-skull-post-earring?ref=shop_home_active_11

shipping:
Packed in a padded mailer- shipped via US Postal Service, tracking included.

I send a shipping notification email when I ship out my orders, and I'm proud to be known for fast delivery (if you check out my feedback, you will find "fast" as one of the most used comments). If I have a piece in stock it will be shipped ASAP- often within 24 hours of order

Looking for a tiny silver earring for your multiple piercings? Sold as single earring! Buy two for a pair. This simple little earring design also works great as an unusual nose ring: it's small enough to fit noses without looking out of place (like some ear studs might).Approximately 3 millimeters in diameter, they have a dimple stamp on the face and a 20 gauge post back with rubber stopper.

Tiny yet substantial mini silver studs; made from a nugget of sterling silver. This method also makes them have an organic form, not precisely circular, they look more natural than if they were stamped out of a disc cutting

As they are handmade, they will have slight variations. I can choose from my stock based on your needs:
Want an oval shape or are you looking for a circle? tell me on your order and I will choose from your specifications.

As they can also be slightly different sizes , you can specify your sizing needs as well. If you are looking for a really tiny size (particularly for a nose ring)you can note that on your order and I will pick one of my smallest in stock.(Likewise if you are looking for a slightly larger size.)

Some have dimples in the center, some are slightly offset. If you have a preference please note this on your order.

I can also bend the post for you if you want to use it as a nose ring- I make a lot of nose rings, and have been wearing one for 30 years so I know how to make a nose stud fit comfortably in your piercing. (nothing worse than an
uncomfortable piercing!)
**Please Pick the variation for nose ring if you want it to have a post bent for comfort as a nose ring.**

These dimple studs are usually in stock and ready to ship- at the most I may need a week's time for making any custom orders for this design.

Securely packed in a padded mailer. I ship using US Postal service; you can choose your rate from many options including first class or if you are in a rush next day express shipping. Tracking is included, but shipping insurance is not- however, you can add shipping insurance if you desire during checkout.

any questions about this item or anything else in Cosmo's Moon? please ask! I am usually able to answer most questions within the day- sometimes instantly- Please take a moment to check my feedback rating- I'm proud to say that I have many happy and repeat customers

Add a bit color to your stack ring collection with this fun silver and copper twist ring!

Available in size 3 - 10 (US ring sizing), Most sizes are in stock. If not in stock, they are made to order within 2 weeks of order. While I do need to take the time to make my work properly, (with excellent craftsmanship) I tend to make and ship much faster than my estimated quote- (see my feedback for comments on my speedy service)

This twist ring is made with two lengths of 20 gauge sterling and copper wire, twisted together, soldered, formed and work hardened (in order to make ring durable and help it keep its roundness) then antiqued (to bring out the twist detail) and tumble polished.

The copper will darken with age- and can be brought back to bright copper - simply scrub the ring with an abrasive scrubbie to take off the oxidization and return it to a bright copper color!

please remember to check YOUR SIZE on the order form at checkout. (slight Price variations are due to material increase with larger sizes)

Twisted silver wire nose ring hoop comes in either custom sizes or easy DIY trim to fit instructions for your unique size and perfect fit!

This unique nose hoop is made with two strands of skinny silver wire that twist together and tapers to a 20 gauge post (22 gauge post available by special request)

Looking for a nose ring that (finally) fits exactly the way you want? You're in the right place! As a long time nose ring wearer myself, I know the importance of comfort and fit.

That's why I offer two options for my nose ring hoops:

Option 1: ready to wear "custom fit" option , where you choose from a range of sizes, from 7 to 12 millimeters inner diameter. ***choose this option if you have a measurement larger than 9 millimeters

Option 2: the more economical "DIY size it yourself" option, where I send a slightly oversized hoop ( approximately 9- 10 millimeters inner diameter) along with my easy written trim and fit instructions along with the link to my diy sizing video.

Note:Both options come with my DIY sizing and hoop maintenance information paper, which has links to my hoop sizing and care videos.

Don't have a tool box handy? Not to worry! the only tools needed are simple nail care tools that everyone has in their bath supplies). I've sold thousands of these DIY hoops with great success

The last image in this listing illustrates approximately where you should measure for your correct fit. Please watch my easy MEASURING VIDEO where I demonstrate a simple way to measure your nose hoop size https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQgfmRvvFhY&t=186s

HELPFUL REMINDERS yup, I'm a mom, can you tell? :-)

*specify your order preferences when ordering
*check to be sure your address is current

Tracking is included but shipping insurance is not. However, insurance can easily be added at checkout for a great rate! ( thanks Etsy!) I will send an email with your tracking number when I put your order in the mail.

Hoop care:
This twisted silver hoop is finished with a darkened silver "antique" finish to highlight the twisted wire. (I send a little "scotch brite" scrubby pad which you can use to brighten your silver when it tarnishes. )

Note: Don't dip these twist hoops in chemical silver cleaner; doing so will likely strip the antique finish from your hoop
