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.

Exactly what I wanted
Saturday, 21 March 2020  | 

Great quality and true to size. Exactly what I had been looking for. I ordered internationally and it arrived safe and well packaged. Only thing I would say is that the tightness/looseness on the hinge may slightly differ with each ring, some are loose and may cause the ring to open up on it's own over time but I would say you find this with any seller. (I have rings from other places that are the same.)

Response:

You are right that all rings (segment and BCR styles) can loosen over time. Gently squeezing the ring together when the segment is open should make the gap smaller and tighten the ring again. You might need to do it a few times to get the tension right.

Looks great!

The jewelry itself looks really good on my helix. I went for the 8mm which was perfect, 10 would've worked too. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because the clasp was difficult to snap on at first, took about 20 mins to put in. But once on, it does not budge!

Love the look but difficult and a bit temperamental to close...

Stiff hinge
Thursday, 16 January 2020  | 

Not yet tried it in my ear as took me forever to open and had to resort to pliers. Hinge seems very stiff. Potentially need to remove to an operation so donít want to risk putting it in just yet.

They were better quality than I had expected for the price I paid.. easy to put in and have stayed in place since. The service was great, they arrived 3 days after I ordered them, I will be using this seller again.

Impossible
Sunday, 17 November 2019  | 

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.

Exactly as advertised

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!
