So why is it so difficult to get the correct size ear spacers?
There could be many reasons you are having problems getting the correct size. One of the most common culprits is the failure of body jewelry stores to size their products using a caliper prior to shipping. We have found some stores selling jewelry 1mm to 2mm larger/smaller than the requested size. Avaia Artistic Jewelry sizes all of our organic jewelry prior to shipping using a vernier caliper. Because each organic item is hand made by an artisan, there are natural variations in size. Standards within the business allow for a +/- 0.5mm deviation from the actual size. One pair may be 0.5mm smaller, and another pair 0.5mm larger than your requested size, and this is within the norms.
Other reasons for sizing issues include large flares or double flares which typically are 0.5 - 1.5mm larger than the wearable area. Self stretching, as piercings naturally do, may lead you to think the jewelry is the wrong size, when it actually is what you have requested.
