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.

As a nose ring hoop wearer since 1989, and I understand the importance of a good fit! Therefore, I offer two options for buying your hoops: either DIY or CUSTOM.
THIS IS THE LISTING FOR THE DIY SIZING NOSE HOOP.
( I send easy trim/fit/shape instructions which is supported by video instructions I've posted on YouTube)

Not a do it yourself person? no problem! I also offer a CUSTOM SIZED option, Here:
If you want me to size it for you, choose the CUSTOM sized hoop.

DIY size and fit
This is the DIY OPTION- I send a hoop with an inner diameter of between 8-10 mm round (If you need a larger sized diameter please choose the custom size )Then YOU follow the instructions to trim and reshape your hoop to your exact fit. (NOTE: Please do not make size requests with this DIY sized option. If you need a requested size please choose the custom fit option, thanks)

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 re-shape your hoops if they become distorted.
3) easy DIY custom sizing instructions ( I SEND THESE WITH ALL ORDERS)
4) a video link that shows you how to custom size the hoop using basic nail care tools.
*******************************************************************************************
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) I send care and maintenance directions with every order.

If you have any questions about how to fit your nose ring please feel free to send me a message via etsy- I check my messages daily and usually can help resolve issues in one or two messages.

Shipping:
These hoops with DIY sizing instructions are usually in stock and usually able to be mailed within a day or two. (NOTE: In super busy times when I have to make more stock they will be mailed out within 7 days of order at longest).

A made to order custom sized 22 Gauge Silver Nose ring hoop. Twenty two gauge is a slender wire, making for a subtle and elegant nose ring hoop.

This listing is for a custom made hoop- made to order 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 for these nose hoops

Please note, 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 6-11millimeters.

Why no larger diameter in this 22 gauge hoop?
The thinness of this gauge wire makes it not a good choice for diameters larger than 11 millimeters - when they are larger than 11 mm round the hoops tend to get bent easier than at smaller diameters. For this reason I don't usually sell these at sizes larger than 11 millimeters diameter, unless by special request.

(NOTE: the DIY size hoops are a separate listing. here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/82982832/dainty-and-snug-22-gauge-solid-sterling?ref=shop_home_active_13 )

DIAMETER = the measurement across the entire mid point of the circle. These hoops are Measured from the INNER EDGE 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.

New! a super skinny 24 gauge nose ring hoop- for those who want a sleek, discreet and super comfortable skinny silver hoop for a nose ring. This is my most slender silver wire nose hoop that I offer. Perfect for a discreet nose hoop for work. This slender nose ring hoop is made from spring hardened 24 gauge sterling silver wire. Lightweight and flexible, easy to put in and take out, and easy to maintain a circular form.

I've been a nose ring wearer since the late 1980's and I know a perfect fit is super important- I know that most hoops don't fit the way you want when you first get them-
so, with this hoop I also send easy trim/fit/shape instructions, Plus a link to my video instructions I have posted for my customers on my YouTube channel

Measurement:
24 gauge solid sterling silver round wire
INNER DIAMETER of between 7-9 mm round (please select size when ordering)

want a larger size than 9mm inner diameter? I do not recommend this gauge in larger sizes- it will not keep it's shape well- however, if you really want a 24 g hoop that's larger than 9mm inner diameter, you can message me and I will make a special ordered size for you

just to be clear, DIAMETER means the measurement across the entire mid point of the circle. These hoops are Measured from the INSIDE EDGE of the wire circle, across the widest point of the circle.

a 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: Shape and Flexibility :
Yes, hoops can bend out of shape if they are not opened and closed properly This is why with each order I send an information sheet and link to my sizing video which shows :

1) how I recommend to properly open and close your hoop sideways (very important)
2) how to easily re-shape your hoops if/when they become distorted.
3) easy DIY custom sizing instructions ( I SEND THESE WITH ALL ORDERS)
4) a video link that shows you how to custom size the hoop using basic nail care tools.

Little silver hoop with clasp- simple sterling silver hoop earring with hook closure. Sold as a single hoop, this is a handmade sterling silver simple hoop with hook clasp. This listing has three sizes to choose from- tiny, small and medium. You can also choose from either a SINGLE or a PAIR of hoops.

This is a simple, silver hoop, made from 20 gauge sterling silver wire. I spring harden the wire, and LIGHTLY hammer the form which helps it "lock in" the curve of the circle. note: The post (which goes though the pierced hole) is not hammered.

Micro (approx 6-8 mm across inner hoop diameter)
Small (approx 9-12 mm across the inner diameter of the hoop)
medium (between approx 13-16 mm across the hoop's inner diameter)

I also make larger sizes, by request. a separate listing for the larger sizes is coming soon- (in January, when I have finished my day job and am back to full time Etsy)

I often have these in stock but occasionally need to make them to order- please allow 1 week to 10 days for a custom order hoop to be created.

Choose from the three size options when ordering. Please remember to specify Single or Pair

Need a specific size not listed here? Send me a message and I will set up a custom listing for your specifications

Thank you for your interest in my shop!
Any questions, please send me a message on Etsy and I will get back to you ASAP

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 starter hoop earrings for a young earring wearer, a pair of hoops to hang charms off of, or need a discreet pair of hoops for work? Well, look no further, I have the earrings you are searching for right here! (I will even make special sizes on request)

I personally hand I make each piece by hand, with care and attention to detail- these hoops are made with solid sterling silver 20 gauge wire, which I spring harden and lightly hammer forge (to set their shape).

Handmade with a single piece of solid Sterling silver wire with no separate clutch back to lose- a simple post and eye-hook catch, which locks the earring in place.They are super comfortable and secure hoops- also great for wearing charms- slide them on or off without worrying about losing them! they are comfortable to sleep in, and keep in for as long as you want.

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 SMALL pair- they are made to be nice and snug fitting (not tight- just close to the ear) They measure around 1/2 to 5/8 inches across the outside diameter of the hoop- (horizontal diameter)

As these are handmade 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.

want them even smaller? no problem!
If you are looking for a tighter fit I can custom make them to your size specifications- simply make note of your size ( outside diameter of hoop in millimeters or inch) on the order. I will confirm your measurement for the special request, so you can be assured that you will get exactly what you need.

Sold as a pair, this listing is for 1 pair of SMALL SIZE (3/4 inch or less 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 and make the piece. (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.

If you have any questions about this or any of my other pieces in this shop please feel free to send me a message via etsy "convo" service- I am "convo friendly" and will do my best to return with an answer as soon as possible.

Thanks so much for checking out these earrings- I really appreciate my customers- your orders help me make my son's after school activities possible (where most of my income seems to be going these days) :-)
thanks again-

Copper and Sterling silver twisted nose ring hoop with easy to do DIY sizing instructions for the perfect fit.

Are you searching for that perfect nose ring hoop? This two colored style is made of two pieces of skinny 22 gauge wire: one sterling silver and the other copper which are twisted together and soldered to a 20 gauge post (part that goes through your piercing)

Looking for a snug fit? a nose ring that (finally) fits exactly the way you want? I make these with an approximately 7 - 9 mm inner diameter, and then give customers easy instructions on how to trim the hoop to your exact size and fit.

After all, humans are unique: we all have different noses, and different piercing sites and fit preferences...It's impossible to make a one size fits all hoop, so I give you the power to custom fit your hoop!

With each nose ring hoop order I send my super easy DIY custom sizing instructions with your order. I've even uploaded a short instructional video on youtube, where you can watch me demonstrate how to size your new hoop using common manicure tools everyone has at home.

Are you wondering if 7-9 mm is a big enough diameter to start with? To measure for your piercing fit see the last image in this listing- it shows approximately how you should measure for your correct fit

**I make these hoops one by one, they are completely handmade, please allow for slight variations in twist and size

Mailed in a padded envelope with contact information, video link and written instructions. US postal service first class mail, tracking included. shipping insurance can be added at checkout.

NEW!! Super skinny 24 gauge 14k rose or yellow gold nose ring hoop: subtle dainty simple and comfortable gold nose hoop. 24 gauge is the most slender nose hoop that I now offer.

This skinny gauge wire hoop is what I like to wear- it's a shiny bright zing of gold which doesn't distract or overpower delicate features.

This is the skinniest gauge that I offer my nose rings. Because it is a thin gauge wire, it doesn't have the strength to keep its shape in 9.1mm and larger diameters. Therefore I only recommend this gauge for hoops 6-9mm in diameter.

(If you really want one in a larger diameter, I can make you one, by request- however, you should know that it will probably go out of shape very easily)

Made with solid (not plated or gold filled ) 14 karat rose or yellow gold round wire. (Choose color when ordering)

Features a fused and flattened bead end, which keeps the hoop from spinning

I make these by lightly spring hardening the wire, which will help the hoop maintain its circular shape. The wire is flexible and easy to trim to fit to your specifications.I send DIY TRIM AND FIT instructions with every nose hoop order.

Determining Size:
Hoop sizes are measured from the inner edges of the hoop circle. The diameter is the measurement across the center of the circle. My standard default size I send (if no size is specified) has an inner diameter measurement of 8 millimeters.

PLEASE WATCH MY MEASURING VIDEO on HOW TO MEASURE for YOUR SIZE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQgfmRvvFhY&t=186s

WANT A PERFECT FIT?
To ensure you get the fit you want, I send a link to my video instructions on how to trim your nose ring. (using simple manicure tools that everyone has at home). Written Instructions are also included with every nose ring order.

Please specify your size when ordering!

Looking for this 24 gauge in YELLOW gold? Choose "yellow gold" when ordering

Shipping:
sent in a padded mailing envelope. I ship via the US postal service, first class mail tracking included. If desired, Shipping insurance can be added at checkout. I send a notification email with the tracking number when the order is put in the mail.

Thank you for supporting handmade artisan jewelry- helping to keep Etsy as THE place to find unique handmade items sold by independant artists (like me!)

More about the Sugar Skull theme:
It's the end of summer, and around Tucson the creative community begins to conjure up their creations for the annual All Souls procession . This time of year also is when we desert dwellers are finally able to enjoy cooler weather- essentially, Late October is our "Spring is sprung" time- when everyone rejoices in being able to spend some time outside after a very long scalding hot summer.
