Measurements & Size Conversion

Measuring

Body Jewellery is measured in a specific way using Gauge (thickness), Internal Diameter or Bar Length & Ball size.

For BCR's, Circular Barbells & circular type items you will need to know the Gauge (thickness) in MM. The diameter is measured internally as in the BCR example below. The ball size is measured by diameter.

For Barbells & Curved Barbells you will need to know the Gauge (thickness) in MM, the Bar Length (from thread to thread) & the Ball size (diameter). For Curved Barbells (Bananas) the length is measured as a straight line between the base of the ball / thread on each end (see below)

Our Body Jewellery size is described in the format:-

Gauge x Length  X Ball size (Barbells & Bananas)

Gauge x Internal Diameter x Ball size (Circular Barbells & BCR's)

e.g. 5mm x 19mm x 8mm (5mm bar thickness, length 19mm, ball size 8mm)

If you are not familiar with metric measurements please see the size conversion tables below.
