Number of Hoops/Sizes
Niobium mini continuous hoop earrings. Personal #1 recommendation for switching out new piercings for the first time, and for body jewelry.

Comes as a single or pair.

•• Nickel free ••

• The model is wearing 9mm and 8mm 20 gauge continuous hoop earrings in the first picture.

• 20 gauge is comfortable for standard piercings.

• • • To insert hoop, twist the ends away from each other, then twist the ends back together to form one continuous loop. Do not pull the hoop apart. There is no "latch" or locking mechanism, you simply twist/bend the hoop into position.


Each hoop is one solid color.

••Steel Blue

Niobium is a "reactive" metal. Its natural color is a dark gray. To change the color of the niobium it is immersed in a water and sudsy solution, with an electric current. How long the metal stays in the water with the electricity, determines what type of color it will take.
Niobium is similar to titanium, but is softer, and has more brilliant coloring.


••6mm: TINY, location on ear: cartilage tragus.
••7mm: VERY SMALL—usually only for cartilage piercings, or high lobe 2nd or 3rd piercings
••8mm: hugs the lobe of the ear
••9mm: hugs thicker lobes, or has a small gap on the first piercing
••10mm: gap underneath earlobe on the first piercing

• • • 6mm/7mm are the most difficult of all our hoops to insert.
• • • 8mm/9mm are moderately difficult to insert.
• • • 10mm, most easy to insert.

• • While they may be tricky to get in the first time, these hoops stay put for days and even years—which is why they are a beloved piece of jewelry. They are meant to be lightweight, durable, and stylish in your daily life.


• • • Why choose these niobium small hoop earrings? Niobium is tarnish free, and is universally accepted for all piercings. These hoops can be put in and left in—sleeping, showering, running, playing, etc. • • •
