All body piercing jewelry have an important common factor, which is the diameter of the part of the item of jewelry where it will rest in the piercing site. With body jewelry, there is a wide variety of possible sizes, and wearers generally want jewelry that is the same size as their piercing site.

A gauge number denotes a thickness on a standardized scale which, for most purposes, starts at 20g (0.812 mm thick, often used for the posts for nose studs), and increases in thickness (as the gauge number decreases) to 0g, then 00g.

Even though the gauge system was originally meant for wire, it is now used regardless of whether an item of body jewelry is an actual wire, or is instead a wooden plug, a plastic ring, or any other material. The alternative to using the gauge-and-inches system is to specify the thickness in millimeters.
