This listing is for any NeoMetal threadless post of your choice. NeoMetal’s patented “snap-fit” or “press-fit” threadless system is an effective alternative to internally-threaded jewelry. Made of ASTM F-136 implant-grade titanium.
All NeoMetal Threadless Posts have three things to consider:
Gauge (or thickness) of the post needed.
Length (or how long) of the post needed.
Size of the opening of your post.The differences between these will determine which post(s) you need for your piercing(s).
NOTE: Though we have included a millimeter (mm) chart in this listing, due to screen size, mobile devices, etc it is NOT as accurate as an in-person millimeter ruler. Please take this into consideration when choosing your jewelry.
16 Gauge in lengths: 6mm (1/4″), 8mm (5/16″) and 10mm (3/8″) with a 18g (Universal) pin opening.
For Lips: Generally 16g with 6mm or 8mm length for healed piercings.
For Outer Cartilage: Generally 16g with 6mm or 8mm length for healed piercings.
If your threadless top has a little ‘nub’ at the end of it, then chances are it will fit into a post with a 16g pin.
If your threadless top has no little nub and looks uniformly shaped, then chances are it will fit into a post with a 18g (Universal) pin.
If you suspect you have a 16 pin top and would like a 16 gauge pin post, please contact the shop with the length you will need and we can double check that we have the post you will need in stock.
PLEASE CONSIDER: Unless measured and inserted by a professional piercer, we cannot guarantee the fit of your post.
If you were not pierced with us or we do not have a record of the jewelry we have sold you in the past, determining the exact gauge and/or length post you will need will not be 100% guaranteed. Even with a record to go by, the only way to completely be 100% sure your new jewelry will fit is to have a professional piercer measure and insert your jewelry. Therefore, if you want an exact fit and can make it into the shop, please call us to set up an insertion appointment and we can go over the details with you over the phone.
