Looking for a simple, snug fitting silver nose ring hoop that is just a bit thicker than my 22 gauge dainty hoop? Here it is! This Nose ring hoop is made from spring hardened 20 gauge solid sterling silver wire. The hoop has a small flat ball of silver at the end of the hoop (which acts as a stopper to keep it from spinning out of your piercing.)

As a nose ring hoop wearer since 1989, and I understand the importance of a good fit. That's why I send a link to my easy DIY nose ring hoop sizing instruction video I made for my customers so you can fit your hoop to your exact size. (using basic nail care tools)

You can easily maintain a round hoop or reform a hoop that is already bent - I send detailed directions with your order. (These Maintenance techniques are also demonstrated on the video)

size and fit
The inner diameter of the hoop I send is about 8-10 mm round. (unless you tell me you need larger) If you need a bigger one please note it on your order- 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 one(1) 20 gauge nose ring hoop

Hand made one at a time, allow for very slight variations in each ring.
Available while supplies last, usually mailed out within 1-5 days of order
Shipped in a padded mailer, USPS first class mail with tracking included.Shipping insurance is not included but can be purchased at checkout if desired.

************************************************************************************************
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

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, 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 to large sized pair of earrings which you are searching for right here!

I personally make these simple silver hoops in my private jewelry studio. I make each piece of jewelry by hand, with care and attention to detail- these hoops are made with solid sterling silver 18 gauge wire, which I spring harden (so they keep their shape) and lightly hammer forge (to set their shape).

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/XL sizes. This is the listing for the "Large" pair- They measure approximately 7/8 to 1 inch across the outside diameter of the hoop- (horizontal diameter)

a bit thicker hoop, same post size
These large sizes of the continuous hoop are made with a slightly thicker gauge of wire 18g for the body of the hoop, and the piercing part- that goes through yout pierced hole- is a comfortable 20 gauge.

As they are handmade to order 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.

Do you need a larger sized hoop?
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 "Large" SIZE (7/8 to 1 inch in diameter) 18 and 20 gauge sterling silver simple continuous hoop earrings

how long does it take to get these in the mail?
I usually have a pair in stock, but if I don't, it can take approximately 5-10 days for me to complete the order, depending on how busy my studio is (holiday time would most likely be on the longer wait side)

Shipping info:
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.

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-

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)

handmade with care in Tucson Arizona

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)
********************************************************
Shipping:
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

Twisted silver wire gives a different spin on a nose ring hoop! Looking for another option for your nose ring? How about a twisted sterling silver wire hoop - two strands of 22 g wire twist together and tapers to a 20 gauge post (part that goes through your piercing)Looking for a snug fit?Or just looking for a nose ring that (finally) fits exactly the way you want?I make these with an approximately 10 mm inner diameter, though you can order a slightly larger size if you need a larger hoop.

the question of fit-
We all have different noses, and different piercing sites, so I give you the power to fit your hoop exactly to your needs by sending my super easy DIY custom sizing instructions with your order (includes a link to my sizing instruction video on youtube, so you can see me explain and demonstrate how to size your new hoop using simple manicure tools everyone has at home-even guys)

The last image in this listing illustrates approximately where you should measure for your correct fit

This twisted silver hoop is finished with a darkened silver "antique" finish to highlight the twisted wire

**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.

Simple and light, this is a lightly textured skinny stacking ring- made with spring hardened 18 gauge sterling silver wire, lightly hammer textured. These are so pretty in a group- though I sell them one at a time, so you can order as many as you like.

These simple rings are excellent to mix with my other stacking rings- I like them as a spacer between twisted rings for instance- the thin line of this silver band gives you a visual break between more ornate stack style rings.

Great for a "Safety ring"
Do you have a ring that you love that is just too loose? afraid you might lose it? These simple sterling silver rings are a good solution to the problem of having a ring that is too large- simply slip the correct size of this slender ring over your too big ring, and voila! The stacking ring acts as a stopper for the too big ring, so you need not worry about losing your big ring any more!

FINISHES-
I offer these in 3 finishes-
*Polished*- no patina, just shiny silver! the delicate texture shimmers in the light!
*Satin*- lightly hand sanded to a pretty, slightly rustic Matte finish.
*Dark*- all patina, no bright areas. this is a cool, urban/industrial look. Really interesting when paired with a shiny or satin ring, or any other bright surface.
*******Please specify your preference of finish during checkout. **If no finish is specified the default finish is Satin.**

SIZES-Available in size 3 to 10 (American sizing) I have many sizes already in stock (and ready to ship)- for those sizes not in stock, I require a few days to make the rings to order. Please allow 10 days for shipping (though I usually ship much faster than that- see my feedback for comments on my speedy service)
Yes, I will do a quarter size if you need it. please tell me if you want a quarter size- I don't mind making them! Slight price increase is due to material increase- bigger sizes require more metal.

Packed in a padded mailer, shipped via USPostal service, first class mail, tracking included. shipping insurance is not included but may be purchased at checkout if desired. I will send you a notification email when I put your order in the mail, so you can be on the lookout for a package from Cosmo's Moon!

thank you!- Maureen BZ

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? How about a first pair of handmade earrings for your young friend with freshly pierced ears? This tiny 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 which I hammer into a flat (but a bit fat) disc. I make them this way to give the earring a bit more substance than if it were made from a flat sheet. 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 machine.

As they are handmade, they 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
thanks for shopping at Cosmo's Moon! - Maureen

Little chunky silver pebble stud earrings, simple and a bit rustic. Created with with organic shaped "pebbles" of solid sterling silver and featuring a hand stamped spiral adorning the surface. These little treasures are 100% handmade, so a "pair" will be similar in shape and size, but not identical. (Like the photos)

These earrings have a rustic feel which shows the hand (not machine) that made them. Do you dislike that plastic-y factory finish in most commercial jewelry? I do too! My work is hand finished, with your choice between polished and matte finishes. (both will have a darkened spiral)

These petite stud earrings measure approx 4-6 millimeters round (about 3/8 inch) and are finished with a sterling silver post soldered on the back, with a comfy pair of little rubber stoppers.(also available with sterling silver ear clutch backs- choose this during checkout. The slight price increase for silver stoppers reflects the additional silver)

packed in a little protective jewelry box nestled in a padded mailer and shipped via USPostal Service, first class mail, tracking included. Shipping insurance is not included, but can be added at checkout if you desire. These handmade earrings are Made to order and are mailed approx 7-10 days after order. (I often have a pair in stock, so the wait is usually almost nothing- see my feedback for comments on my speedy service)

Thank you for your indie spirit, and for shopping for handmade artisan jewelry. We really DO make things "Like they used to"!
