When buying a pair of sleeper earrings you want t know you are buying the size you want!

Sleeper earrings come in a wide variety of sizes and designs

When buying check the measurements, compare them on a ruler and if you are still not sure "Ask" the seller as many questions as you need just to make sure

Most sleepers are made in 1mm wire thickness = 18 guage wire

When we measure our sleeper earrings we measure the Inside Diameter

For example

Inside diameter is the inside hoop measurement from inside the hoop from one side to the other

Outside Diameter is the complete measurement of outside the hoop from one side to the other including the width of the hoop

 8mm Inside Diameter = 10mm Outside Diameter
10mm Inside Diameter = 12mm Outside Diameter
12mm Inside Diameter = 14mm Outside Diameter
14mm Inside Diameter = 16mm Outside Diameter
16mm Inside Diameter = 18mm Outside Diameter
18mm Inside Diameter = 20mm Outside Diameter
20mm Inside Diameter = 22mm Outside Diameter
23mm Inside Diameter = 25mm Outside Diameter

Converting mm to inches for size

  8mm = .31 inch
10mm = .39 inch
12mm = .42 inch
14mm = .55 inch
16mm = .62 inch
18mm = .70 inch
20mm = .78 inch
25mm = .98 inch


Simple and easy to use: Perfect for sensitive and newly pierced ears
