Copper and silver twisted together form a unique nose ring hoop! Looking for an interesting and beautiful nose ring? This style is made of two strands of 22 g wire: one sterling silver and the other copper. These two metals are twisted together and tapered 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 9-10 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 10 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

This twisted silver and copper hoop is finished with a darkened silver "antique" finish to highlight the twisted pattern in the wires

**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.

22 gauge 14k rose Gold nose ring hoop. This is the same as my popular 22 gauge silver snug nose ring hoop, now in solid 14 karat rose gold with an inner diameter of 9-12 millimeters, this hoop includes a link to my super easy DIY video instructions on how to trim your nose ring to custom fit it for your nose. (using simple manicure tools that everyone has at home). Instructions are also included in written step by step note


The hoop is 22 gauge round wire with a ball of fused gold on one end (to keep the hoop from spinning out of your piercing) the other end is a rounded wire point (this is the side you would trim if you need to make it a more snug fit)

14 karat gold. 22 Gauge wire is quite slender so I stamp the karat it on the beaded end (shown in photo detail)

Two thumbnail images are of Illustrations that show the technique I recommend to open and close your nose ring hoop (which will help maintain it's form) and a super simple forming technique that illustrates how to re-shape any hoop that goes out of round.

If you buy 2 you have a pair of simple gold hoop earrings! These are great as starter hoops for young earring wearers, or for filler hoops for multiple pierced ears. I wear these in my 3rd holes and my "high on the ear" cartilage ear holes. I almost never take them out- they are super comfortable, easy to sleep in earrings (and nose ring)

Also, there is a photo showing the color difference between the yellow and rose 14k

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...

Yes, they also can bend out of shape if they are not opened and closed properly This is why with each order I send 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
4) a video link that shows you how to custom size the hoop using basic nail care tools.

size and fit:
I send a hoop that will be on the large size ( about 7-9 mm inner diameter) and include super easy DIY trimming and fitting instructions with every order. This way, you can trim it to your preferred fit! I also include a link to my instruction video along with my contact info if you have any questions about your new hoop.
If you need a larger inner diameter than 7-9 mm please send me a message on your order, with the measurement you need. I will make an XL size for you, also on the large size, so you can trim it to your exact desired fit.

How to know what size you might need? please look at the fifth image of this listing- it shows where you need to measure to figure out your diameter needs, (any questions on this please feel free to send me a message via etsy!)

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, Satisfaction Guaranteed.

Simple classics in a pair of little silver bead post earrings. These are sweet and simple, with solid silver sphere soldered on a sterling silver 20 gauge post. These little treasures are handmade, a "pair" will be very similar in shape and size, but not identical.

Tumble polished to a lustrous finish, these earrings have a clean earthy feel. They don't have the appearance of factory made jewelry (that awful slick shine that looks and feels so artificial) They have a lustrous tumbled finish and clean, professionally crafted quality.

They measure approximately 2.75 millimeters round (see photo comparison with a quarter to illustrate scale) and are finished with a sterling silver post back, and a comfy pair of little rubber stoppers.

Designed for everyone: men, women, teens...For kids these are classic little silver earrings. Sweet as bridesmaid/ wedding party gifts, great for those who work in a conservative dress world, and have Military, uniformed or school dress requirements. Also great for people (like me) who have multiple ear piercings (they are great for those holes you want to keep open, but don't want dangles)
I ship these in a padded yellow mailing envelope, USPS first class with tracking included. Shipping insurance can be added at checkout if desired.

As with all of the work I have in my shop, these are 100% made by hand in my sweet garden studio in central Tucson Arizona (pictured). Thank you for your support and for shopping for handmade artisan jewelry.
I really appreciate the business

Looking for a perfectly tiny 14k rose gold nose ring? You found it here! This is a perfectly petite 1-2 mm seed of 14k rose gold 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!

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 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 rose gold fused on a wire post. Neat and discreet, a tiny 1-2 mm dot of 14 k rose gold- just big enough to be noticed ( and not slip through your pierced hole) a pretty little seed of gold 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 14k rose gold... 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 shoppirng 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!

Layered silver stacking ring. This substantial yet slender ring is double layered and sports a cool fluted top layer. Double layering the ring makes it more robust than many other stacking rings you find on Etsy. This layered silver ring has the extra lining, elevating it off the finger and putting a new spin on the fluted ring.

I typically finish this ring Oxidized to a deep gray patina and satin finished for an antiqued look.If you prefer shine, I can also finish it with a high polish- your choice!

available immediately in sizes 6 - 8 1/2

Each stacking ring is sized to order
Item ships USPS first class (2-3 day delivery in the US). Ring is shipped in a padded mailer with tracking included.
