The original hoops may have looked much like these, simple and easy to live in. Many museums have similar items.

I carefully handform these out of 24 gauge (.511mm) solid 14k gold, gold fill, 100% recycled sterling silver, or pure nonreactive niobium and file the ends. They are shown in 24g 10mm inside diameter.

This listing is for one (1) hoop.

If this isn't exactly what you want, please check out the rest of my shop!

The thinnest gauge I work with is 28g (.321mm) and is almost threadlike.
*I also work with 26g (.405mm) and 24g (.511mm) which are very delicate.
22g and 20g are about the size of most earring post or hoops that you would find in a typical jewelry display.
18g is slightly thicker. It may be uncomfortably snug in an ear lobe for someone in North America or Europe for just a bit. It's a common size in the East and in Africa, however. It's also used all over for cartilage piercings and nostril jewelry.
16g is also fairly typical for cart and nose piercings.
14g is the beginning of what I consider gauged jewelry and is often purchased for septums and statement pieces.
I also often have 12g and 10g in stock. Thicker gauges may be available on a special order basis.

--Nose Hoop Diameters--
The most popular inner diameters are 8mm, 9mm and 10mm which are also good for ears!

Preferably using a millimeter ruler measure the distance from the bottom edge of your piercing hole to the bottom edge of your nostril. If you prefer a loose fit add a millimeter. If you want a slim profile fit, please request 'oval' in the notes to seller at checkout.

Loose is better than tight, which can pinch, pull and hurt. I can size your jewelry down if your hoop is too large, but I can't do much about jewelry that is too snug.

For sensitive piercings I recommend niobium and 14k yellow gold.
My niobium is a lustrous grey, pure and unalloyed, nonreactive and biocompatible.
My gold fill is is composed of a solid layer of 14k gold bonded with heat and pressure to a base metal such as brass. They look like 14 karat gold because the karat gold layer is much thicker than heavy gold electroplate.
