IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT NEOMETAL THREADLESS JEWELRY

  • See below for "How it Works."
  • If the item pictured is only a post, it does NOT include the end(s). If the item pictured is only an end, it does NOT include the post.
  • NeoMetal posts require threadless ends and vice versa.

GETTING THE RIGHT ITEMS:

  • In January 2016, NeoMetal discontinued their old-style 16g and 14g threadless labrets and barbells.
  • They now produce universal threadless labret posts and universal threadless barbells (all in 18g, 16g, 14g, and some 12g)
  • All gauges of universal posts take ONLY 18g ends.
  • All 18g ends will fit all gauges of universal posts.
  • 18g ends have a straight 25g pin on the back. 16g and 14g ends have a pin with a small bulb. If your end has a small bulb, it will not work with universal posts.

Size Help

SIZE HELP FOR LABRETS

Labrets are measured from the disk to the ball along the length of the bar. The gauge is the thickness of the material.

Steel Navel web how do you measure the gauge and length of labrets?

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.
