It’s important for the jewellery you’re wearing to comfortably fit into your piercing – poorly fitting jewellery can cause irritation and elongate the healing process. When choosing the right jewellery for your piercing, consider the style, gauge and length of the piece and how you want it to fit. If you’re after a close fit, you’ll want something with a thicker gauge – or choose something with a thinner gauge for a looser fit.
