We understand that it can be difficult to visualize how big some of the hoops are when all you have is a picture and a number of millimeters. Even the images can be misleading at times. In order to help you see just how big the hoops you want to order are before you order them, we put together the nice millimeter to inches comparison below. To give you a bit of a benchmark, the largest pair of hoops we carry is 12 mm in diameter and the smallest pair we carry is just 6 mm in diameter. While this information serves as a great starting point, the best way to get an accurate information of how large your hoops will be is to break out your ruler and use it as a reference.
All of our sizes are listed in mm as it is the universal measurement for jewelry. The below shows conversion into inches to make it easier for those that live in the USA to visualize.
Hoop Sizing - Measuring Your Ears to Know Which Hoop Size is Best For You
Every ear and piercing is different, so not every size of hoop will fit the same for everyone. The best way to know what size is best for you is to take a measurement of your piercing.
Find a ruler - preferably with millimeter markings (inches will work as well, but millimeters are more precise). Hold the ruler up to your ear and measure the distance between the piercing and the edge of ear. Decide where you want the other edge of the hoop to rest. Do you want it to touch your ear or to have a little space in-between? This will be your inside opening measurement.
Our standard sizes for the small hoop earrings are:
8mm or 1/4 inch (inside opening is 6.5-7mm)
10mm or 3/8 inch (inside opening is 8.5-9mm)
12mm or 1/2 inch (inside opening is 10-11mm)
You'll want to add 1-2 millimeters for the hoop itself to your measurement (our measurements are outer diameter - includes the hoop, not just the inside opening).
POST LENGTH / RING DIAMETER
The length of your piercing refers to the wearable length of the earring post that goes through your piercing. For flat back studs, it’s the length of the post. For cartilage rings, this refers to the interior diameter of the ring.
