Nose Stud Sizes-Some of our nose rings are available with different length posts. The most common nose post size is 1/4 inch (6mm) long. But some piercers use a slightly longer post (5/16 inch-8mm) for the initial nose piercing to compensate for swelling. This size works for some people, but others may find it uncomfortable after the nose piercing heals.
There is no right type of nose ring. The customer usually chooses what style they want (screw, bone, stud or hoop) based on personal preference, comfort, ease of use etc. We recommend that you consult with a local piercing professional if you are not sure how to use a certain type of nose ring. Some nose rings come in different lengths, diameters, etc. The size you need is based on where your piercing is placed on the nose and how thick your nose is, etc. The only way to properly determine the size you need is to measure a piece of jewelry that fits properly and use it as a guideline or consult your piercing professional!
