GAUGE REFERENCE

The gauge is the thickness of the jewelry (Usually the thickness of the material the jewelry is made from but may also be the diameter of a plug or eyelet).  From 20 gauge to 00 gauge, the smaller the number is, the thicker the jewelry is. After 00 gauge, the diameter of body jewelry is usually measured in fractional inches as shown below; however, some manufacturers make 000 gauge and 0000 gauge jewelry.

Millimeters are rounded to the first decimal.
