Hypoallergenic surgical steel hinged segment rings in 0.8mm, 1mm and 1.2mm gauge (thickness) with 6mm, 7mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm internal diameters.

Hinged segment rings close the same way as standard segment rings but with one end hinged to the ring they aren't quite as fiddly as you only need to click one end into place. Often the segment does need to be guided into place. Holding the segment between your thumb and index finger and the ring part with your other hand is usually the easiest way to do this. Don't wory if it goes passed the ring instead of clicking in, it will go back into the right place without doing any harm.

Which size?
The sizes listed are for the internal diameter of the hinged segment rings so if you measure out from your piercing you should get a good idea of how each size would sit.

0.8mm, 1mm or 1.2mm gauge?
0.8mm/20 gauge (the same thickness as Blomdahl titanium and Studex Sensitive earrings) or 1mm/18 gauge hinged segment rings are good if your piercings have shrunk or were originally pierced with a smaller size. 1.2mm/16 gauge is the most common size ears are initially pierced with.
Please note: The hinged part is not thinner than the rest of the ring.

Impossible

I found the hinges almost impossible to open, in fact I still haven't managed to open the one and so haven't been able to use it at all

Response:

I'm sorry to hear you've had trouble opening the hinged segment ring.

Some people find wearing close-fitting latex/latex-free gloves helps to give more grip. To open the hinged segment rings you need to hold the segment in one hand and the ring in the other close to the opening. It's very easy to confuse with the hinge but pulling either side of that doesn't open the ring at all (I've made that mistake plenty of times). If you look closely you should be able to see the join between the ring and segment as a thin line about 5mm away from the hinge on the 6mm rings.

Fantastic product. Once you put them in, there is no risk of them coming out unless you want them to. They're great for my allergies and are the exact size I wanted. There have been other sites I've purchased from where they'll give measurements and then send a product that doesn't match those measurements; that was not the case here. These are exactly what I wanted!

Surgical steel hinged earring
Tuesday, 6 August 2019  | 

So glad I found this website, itís so easy to find what you need. I started out with the surgical plastic earring studs which were fab, started the healing process of my very poorly ear lobe, then I moved onto these, very pleased easy to put in and take out to clean. I opted for the larger size as my lobes are quite thick, look excellent and good space between the ring and the bottom of my lobe. Love them and this site is awesome, customer service is excellent and delivery quick, impressed 😊

Like this segment ring which is easy to put in and flat enough to sleep on.

Just what I was looking for

These were perfect for me, and I have them in all the time. I've gotten a lot of compliments on them, and as a nickel allergic I haven't reacted at all.

Fab little ring
Tuesday, 27 March 2018  | 

This is a fab little ring, the 6mm is the perfect size for my rook piercing. It locks in tight, I even stretched mine open a touch as I thought I may struggle getting it out again in such a fiddly part of the ear. Very happy

I have been searching for hoops for my ears for ages and have always gotten rubbish things sent to me from other companies. When I found these I thought they looked okay so Iíd give them a shot. They came home 2 days after ordering which is a record for where I live as i donít live on mainland UK so big props to them for that. When arrived they were sealed perfectly and were so easy to open and close the hinge, I have terrible trouble getting them closed usually. I ordered the 10 mm/1mm G for my second holes and they were perfect. So much so Iíve bought them in 8 mm/1mm G for my third holes too but since I have sensitive ears I thought Iíd go for the titanium (completely didnít notice when I was ordering that there was titanium in the same style hoop but oh well) I am delighted!
