Gauged Jewelry at Tribal Muse
"Gauge" refers to the size of the earring part that fits through the hole of a pierced ear. Typical earrings usually have an earwire of 20-22 gauge (around .03 inches). The larger the gauge, the smaller the size, for example, gauge 16 is larger than gauge 20. "Gauged Jewelry" has gauge sizes that are often quite large, a style that is becoming more and more popular throughout the world.
Some of our Gauged Jewelry
is not much larger than regular pierced ear wires, especially our Hoops. Others, such as our Plugs, can be quite large. Please let us know if there is a size or style you prefer.
