A Complete Guide to Nostril Jewellery
At Minar Jewellers, we love nose jewellery and believe it to be a great way to adorn everyone's face.
When we use the term nose piercing, we’re actually covering a wide variety of styles: from septum and nostril piercings to more complex ones such as rhino and nasallang.
Minar’s nostril jewellery selection
Models, Metals & Sizes
At Minar, we offer a wide selection of nostril jewellery, most specifically:
- Screw back nose studs
- L-shape nose jewellery
- Nose rings/hoops
- Wire back nose jewellery
You can also take a look at our visual Nose Stud Guide which showcases our collection of nose piercing jewellery.
With a limited selection of silver nose rings, the majority of our nose jewellery is all made in solid 18ct gold = 75% gold purity.
The remaining 25% is made up of high quality alloys (including silver, copper, etc) ensuring our jewellery is strong, secure and suitable for sensitive skin.
Many pieces are even adorned with beautiful gemstones like rubies, amethysts, pearls and more.
Remember that if you require any other style or size, you can always contact us - we’ll be happy to customise it for you.
In terms of size, our nose jewellery is in 18 - 20 - 22 - 24 gauges.
A gauge size indicates how big a piercing hole must be to accommodate the jewellery.
Remember that gauge sizes work in reverse, meaning that the higher the number, the thinner the width (for example 24 gauge is thinner than 18 gauge).
To know your size you can either ask your piercing studio or buy a tool called ‘gauge wheel’ which is a flat disk with notches.
All you have to do is slide the stem of the nose stud into the notches until you find the perfect fit.
When it comes to nose rings, you can also measure your piercing from the comfort of your home using a metric ruler.
How? Just stand in front of a mirror and place the ruler on your nose to measure the distance between the piercing hole and the edge of the nostril.
Remember to add a millimeter, so the ring it’s not too tight and can move freely!
If you need extra guidance in finding the best nostril jewellery for you, don’t hesitate to contact us or visit our London showroom in Tooting!
