You found it! That perfect dainty and snug little sterling silver nose ring! This slender nose ring hoop is made from spring hardened 22 gauge sterling silver wire. The hoop is lightweight and flexible yet strong and is designed to fit snug on your nostril.

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- the hoop is slender, so it doesn't stick out like a thicker gauge (making you feel like a pirate- which isn't the look that everyone is going for)

22 gauge wire is slender and can bend easily, which can be an asset when you are putting in or taking out your hoop...

And Yes, they also 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
2) how to easily re-shape your hoops if they become distorted.
3) easy DIY custom sizing instructions ( for THOSE WHO CHOOSE THE DIY SIZING OPTION)
4) a video link that shows you how to custom size the hoop using basic nail care tools.


As a nose ring hoop wearer since 1989, and I understand the importance of a good fit.

I now offer two options-
DIY SIZING- I send detailed instructions on how to trim and resize your hoop to fit
Or
CUSTOM SIZING- you note your needed diameter of hoop on your order and I will send your custom sized hoop with care instructions.

I send care and maintenance directions with your order.

DIY size and fit
IF YOU CHOOSE THE DIY OPTION I SEND A HOOP WITH The inner diameter of between 6-9 mm round. If you tell me you need a diameter larger than 9mm please tell me and I can send one up to 13 mm diameter. Then YOU follow the instructions to trim and reshape your hoop to your exact fit.

For CUSTOM SIZING, send your needed dimensions ( measure from your hole to the edge of your nose where you want the hoop to lay)and I will trim and shape the hoop to your specifications. Please note- measurements should be in millimeters !

Notes:
DIAMETER =the measurement across the entire mid point of the circle. Measured from the inside edge of the wire circle.

How to Measure??The fourth photo in this listing shows me measuring for a nose ring hoop- If you have any questions about how to fit your nose ring please feel free to send me a message via etsy- I am convo friendly!

this listing is for (1) one 22 gauge nose ring hoop- (the most slender wire hoop I sell)
made with 100% solid sterling silver wire (not plated)
These little nose rings are hand made one at a time, with attention to detail and quality please allow for very slight variations in each ring

Looking for a perfectly tiny Sterling silver nose ring? You found it here! This is a perfectly petite 1-2 mm seed of sterling silver on a slender 22gauge L shaped post. A simple little nose ring stud, made for us nose ring wearers who want a discreet and comfortable nose ring stud for everyday!

This is the listing for my smallest size nose ring stud- (it is the smaller of the two shown in the detail image with the millimeter ruler- the larger one is listed in my shop too, it has a 2.5 - 3 mm silver sphere on a 20 gauge L shaped post)

Why I make great nose rings:
Having been a nose ring wearer for more than 30 years I am very familiar with the sorry excuses for nose rings that are commonly available, too big, too shiny, too heavy, and questionable metal..

I know how hard it is to find nose rings that are sized right, finding mostly those big ones make you feel like a pirate, or having the feeling that the nose ring is wearing you!
This is why I started making my line of silver nose ring studs and hoops; to have the option of high quality handmade nose jewelry that fits your face, and does what it's supposed to do: be a beautiful accent to your features, and not overpower them.

This "tiny seed" style nose ring is handmade with a tiny ball of silver fused on a wire post. Neat and discreet, a tiny 1-2 mm dot of Sterling silver just big enough to be noticed ( and not slip through your pierced hole) a pretty little seed of silver on a slender 22 gauge post.

The post is bent approximately 4-5 mm below the silver ball ( please note on your order if you know your nostril thickness- especially if you have thick skin) and the tail end of the wire is curved in an arch for comfort.

These are handmade in Sterling silver- please allow for very slight variations in the fused bead.

Packed in a padded mailer and shipped out daily ( excluding Sundays and Holidays) I ship using USPS first class service, tracking included. Shipping insurance can be added at checkout if desired.

Thank you for shopping at my shop, and for supporting independent artists- I'm on a mission to prove that they really DO make things the way they used to!

Searching for a simple sterling silver hoop earring to go with your nose ring or multiple pierced ears? Perhaps you are searching for a great pair of medium sized starter hoop earrings for a young earring wearer, or need a discreet pair of hoops for work? Or, do you want a set of graduated S/M/L hoops for multi-holed ears (like in the photo) Look no further, I have a medium sized pair of earrings which you are searching for right here!

I personally hand make these simple silver hoops in my professional jewelry studio. I make each piece of jewelry by hand, with care and attention to detail- these hoops are made with solid sterling silver 20 gauge wire, which I spring harden (so they keep their shape) and lightly hammer forge

These are what I call continuous hoops- no separate piece to lose!
They are a single piece of silver wire with no separate clutch back to lose- a simple post and eye-hook catch, which locks the earring in place.This makes them super comfortable and secure too-These hoops are also great for wearing charms- slide them on or off without worrying about losing them! they are perfectly fine to sleep in, and keep in for many days/weeks/months...

Finishes:
available either smooth/polished (default) or lightly hammered/polished (which gives them a little shimmery light play)

I make this model in S/M/L sizes. This is the listing for the MEDIUM pair- they are made to be nice and snug fitting (not tight- just close to the ear) They measure approximately 3/4 to 7/8 inch across the outside diameter of the hoop- (horizontal diameter) As they are handmade and made one at a time please allow for very slight differences in shape and size- I do my best to make sure that they match as closely as possible, however, they will not be identical.

Yes, I can custom make them to your size specifications- simply make note of your size on the order and I will email back to you to confirm your special request, so you can be assured that you will get exactly what you need.

this listing is for 1 pair of MEDIUM SIZE (3/4 to 7/8 inch in diameter) 20 gauge sterling silver simple continuous hoop earrings

shipped in a padded mailer, I ship out my orders asap after I receive them (you can look at my feedback to see many comments about my fast shipping and high quality craftsmanship)
I use USPS first class mail, tracking included. I send a notification email when I ship each order, so my customers can know when to expect their orders. Shipping insurance is not included, but can be added at checkout if desired for a very reasonable rate.

Sweet and Simple 14k gold filled hoop earrings are perfect for when you want to keep your jewelry discreet and sleek. As much as I love wearing big funky earrings, sometimes you just want to keep it simple- when doing sports, on an interview, on the trail, or when you just want to have a simple sleek look; wearing a pair of these simple hoops keeps your piercing open, and gives your ears a kiss of gold, (without the solid gold price).

Gold filled plusses:
Made with 21 gauge gold filled wire (which is a brass alloy covered with a layer of 14 karat gold) these are delicate earrings, but having the gold be reinforced with the brass core actually gives the wire more strength and springiness than if it was solid gold wire. Hey, there's nothing wrong with having solid gold, but sometimes that price can be a bit of an issue too, so the gold filled is great also at keeping the cost of these earrings at a very affordable level.

measures 1/2 inch in diameter- (you can see how that looks on an ear in the detail image)
these are a continuous wire earring, with a very slight flat edge (which helps the wire maintain it's shape) They close with the post end going into a little loop, which secures the earrings on the ear.

I ship via the US postal service, first class mail;
