BodySparkle FAQ and Store Policies

We recommend consulting with a professional piercer to help determine if a particular material or piercing jewelry style will work for your piercing. Information regarding jewelry types for piercings is for informational purposes only and may not apply to all individuals. We recommend sterilizing all piercing jewelry before use. Please consult your piercing professional for sterilization instructions.
We do not accept credit cards that are not issued by U.S. Banks or prepaid gift cards that do not have an address associated with them. The system must be able to verify the billing address on any payment card used with the card issuer in order to complete an order. Credit cards issued outside the United States an and prepaid cards do not use the Address Verification System and therefore cannot be verified. We do accept PayPal and ApplePay as alternatives.
What size or gauge Body Jewelry Size Should I Order?
It is impossible for us to tell what size body jewelry you need for your particular piercing. There is no "standard" size that all Piercing Professionals use. We can tell you the most common sizes and gauges used for a particular piercing, but that will not necessarily be the size that you have. The only way to accurately determine the size you need is to contact the piercer and ask what gauge you were pierced with or measure the jewelry you are wearing and use that as a guide line for new body jewelry purchases. We provide a free measuring chart (Click Here) that you can print and use to measure your jewelry. Click Here for more info about body jewelry sizing.

How long will it take to get my order?
We usually ship all orders within 24-48 hours of receipt of the order. We do not ship on Saturdays, Sundays or Holidays.
