What is the diameter of a normal earring?
A standard “earring” is usually 20 gauge. Jewelry gauges/sizes can vary between manufacturers. There is no universal regulation on companies to make a standard size in body jewelry. A big part of this is that some jewelry is made overseas and measured in millimeters.
What size gauge can you not go back from?

Can I stretch my ears after 2 weeks?
Stretching your ear too quickly can tear the skin. Only increase your jewelry by one size (2 gauge) at a time. Wait 4 to 6 weeks before increasing sizes. Wait for inflammation and pain to subside before increasing the size of your gauge.
What’s the biggest size gauge you can start with?
Begin stretching your ear with a size 16 or 14 gauge. Ears are typically pierced using an 18 or 20 gauge, so 14 is the largest size you can start on and avoid damaging your ears. Starting at any larger than this size puts your ear at-risk of tearing.
How do I measure my piercing size?
The barbell length is measured in a straight line across the center, between the end balls. The post length is measured in a straight line, between the top ball and the base. The inner diameter is measured in a straight line across the center, inside the ring.
What is smaller 20 gauge or 18 gauge?
This will fit but may be slightly loose, as 20 gauge is thinner than 18 gauge. The higher the number, the smaller the gauge. If your piercing is a 18 gauge then the 20 gauge would be slightly smaller.
