 <To Purchase a Completed Set>

A completed set of piercings refers to the set of multiple jewelry pieces that have been combined to make a ready-to-wear earring.

The most common earring sets are the straight barbell, the flat back labret, and the captive bead ring.

Let’s explain further using the most popular earring piece, the straight barbell, as an example.

Please note the difference between the straight barbell and the flat back labret. While the straight barbells can be worn with any of the spare parts on both ends, the flat back labret is only available with the disk piece on the back end. The flat back labret is best suited to be worn comfortably in locations that have less room in the back end.

 

▼Purchasing from the Straight Barbell Page▼

 A   First, select the preferred gauge, material, and length of the barbell post piece in the first section. [Tips] If you have only worn “fashion earrings” and are not sure of your size, it is best to select the 18ga. Also, the suitable length is between 1/4″ (6.4mm) to 5/16″ (8mm) considering the average thickness of the earlobe for Japanese people; therefore, it is advisable to try the 5/16″ (8mm) length to start with. (*We will not be held responsible if the above sizes and lengths do not fit you.)

 B  Next, select the first end type (the front end, for example) from the pulldown bar in the second section. Then, select the necessary options (such as material, diameter, gem color for bejeweled ends, etc.) available for each end type to your preference.
*The same end type options are shown for the second and third sections. If your preferred end type is not available in the pulldown bar, please purchase it individually from the spare parts page.
*The spare parts that have a flat back surface without the grooves can be applied interchangeably for the 18ga and 16ga as well as for the 14ga and 12ga.

 


 C  Next, select the other end (the back end for example) in the same method as  B in the third section.

 D  Now you have a complete earring set that is ready to be worn!! Double check that you have all of the right pieces and click on  Add to Cart .
*Unless the products indicate that they are sold as a pair, the price shown on the page is for a single earring.

<To Purchase the Pieces Separately>

If you wish to purchase the spare parts, straight barbell posts, and other pieces separately, or if you wish to purchase the ends that are not available on the straight barbell or flat back labret pages, please place your order in this method.

Please note that all of the Anatometal jewelry pieces can be combined as long as they are the same gauge, so if you already have a completed straight barbell set, you can change the ends by purchasing just the spare parts. *The spare parts that have a flat back surface without the grooves can be applied interchangeably for the 18ga and 16ga as well as for the 14ga and 12ga.

Let’s go through the order process using the Princess Dangle Ends, as shown in Example 1, as an example.

 

  

 A  Click the Spare Parts icon on the Anatometal page.

 


 B  Select the Princess Dangle Ends from the list of end parts.

 


  C   In the first section, select the gauge and titanium color, as well as the size, cut, and color of the threaded gem.

  D   In the second section, select the size, cut, and color of the dangling gem.
*Unless the products indicate that they are sold as a pair, the price shown on the page is for a single piece.
*The spare parts that have a flat back surface without the grooves can be applied interchangeably for the 18ga and 16ga as well as for the 14ga and 12ga.

*For example, the order process for Example 1 would be as follows: the first section will be Gauge: 14ga, Material: Titanium, High Polish, Gem Size: 4mm, Gem: Princess, Synthetic Lavender; the second section will be Gem Size: 3mm, Gem: Princess, Synthetic Lavender.

 


  E    Double check your order details before clicking Add to Cart.
*Unless the products indicate that they are sold as a pair, the price shown on the page is for a single piece.

Please follow the same steps from  as indicated on the <To Purchase a Completed Set> page to complete your order.
