Belly Ring Size Guide

Finding the perfect belly ring size can be a challenge, especially if you aren’t sure how large a typical belly bar or belly ring is. Use the guides on this page to learn more about common belly ring sizes and to find the perfect length for your body type/piercing location. 

TummyToys Belly Ring Sizes

Our belly button clasps are industry standard 14g with a total length of 13.5mm. The actual bar that goes through your piercing is 11mm long (7/16”). Nearly all navel piercings are done to fit 14-16 gauge bars that are 11mm in length.   

Body piercing jewelry is measured in gauges. The higher the gauge number, the thinner the bar and vice versa. Most belly rings and bars are 14g, with a smaller percentage being 16g. If you wanted to have a 12g piercing for some reason, you would need to have your piercing stretched at a piercing studio. We recommend sticking with the industry standard gauge of 14, as the large majority of belly rings for sale on the web and in studios are made in this size.

Custom Belly Ring Sizes

If you require a higher gauge belly ring (16g), our team of expert jewelers can custom size any of our designs from 14g to 16g. Use the contact form (click here) to get in touch with us about making a custom 16g belly ring.

Wondering why would someone need a 16g belly ring? It’s common for a navel piercing to semi-close after not having jewelry in it for a long stretch of time. In these cases, people often use 16g belly rings instead of the thicker 14g.

If you need a smaller bar length (such as 9mm), we can do that as well. But due to the design/locking mechanism of our clasp, we cannot trim more than 3mm off of the bar. We can also add up to 3mm in bar length (but only on gold, platinum, and palladium).
