How do I know what post length to choose?
There are a few different ways to figure out what length of post (wearable length) you should choose. First it is important to understand what wearable length means. Wearable length is the measurement of the post from just underneath the stone setting, to the bend in the style choice. It only includes the length of post that is actually IN your piercing. It does not include the part of the post that is outside of your piercing. This measurement will be in millimeters. If you have a proper measuring device such as a caliper (A basic measuring tool found in most tool boxes or garages) using it to measure the thickness of your nose is the best and most accurate way. Be sure to set the caliper to millimeters. If you do not have access to a caliper you can use a standard ruler. One side of the ruler should be in centimeters. You will notice small dashes in-between them, these are millimeters as shown below. Place your thumb or pointer finger inside your nostril and pinch lightly. Remove carefully trying to keep your fingers in the same position and measure the distance (space) between your finger and thumb against the millimeters on the ruler. Another way is to measure a nose jewelry piece that you currently have and use it as a reference point. It is best to add a millimeter or two if you are unsure as it is better to choose the length as slightly too long than too short. Our specially designed nose ring backings will allow you to shorten the wearable length to your perfect fit. Please note: If you are ordering a straight stud the measurement will be of the entire post. Straight studs are chosen when you wish to bend the nose stud to the desired wearable length on your own, or by your piercer. Standard wearable length is 6.5mm.
