We aim to communicate jewelry sizing in the clearest, most accessible way possible. Ask & Embla uses gauge, inch, and millimeter sizing to cater to all customers. Here is a guide to sizing for our various jewelry categories.
Lighter weight — 10 grams and below
Lighter-weighted designs are suitable for wearers who prefer a weightless feeling on their jewelry.
Mid weight — 11 grams to 15 grams
Mid-weighted designs are suitable for wearers who prefer and are accustomed to their jewelry having some substance and weight.
Heaver weight — 16 grams and above
Heavier designs are suitable for wearers who are accustomed to and are comfortable with heavier jewelry.

Saddle hangers can vary from design to design, and some styles may have larger outer widths and outer heights than usual. Each saddle hanger's listed size already accounts for any wide flares, and also your comfort and fit at your gauge size.
However, please pay attention to the notes in each product description on whether the style runs large or small. When it comes to saddle hangers, some might prefer a fitted look whilst others may prefer a looser fit, especially at bigger lobe sizes. Therefore we recommend using any measurement charts provided to compare against your existing jewelry and approximate your best fit.
Lighter weight — 15 grams and below
Suitable for wearers who prefer a weightless feeling on their jewelry. Comfortable for long-term wear and will not cause lobes to stretch.
Mid weight — 16 grams to 26 grams
Suitable for wearers who prefer and are accustomed to their jewelry having some substance and weight. Comfortable for long-term wear and is not likely to cause stretching on your lobes.
Heaver weight — 26 grams and above
Recommended for wearers who are accustomed to and are comfortable with heavier jewelry. Long-term wear may cause some slight stretching on your lobes — simply give your lobes intermittent breaks if you experience this happening.
