Nose Screw with Cubic Zirconia Gem Stone

Nose piercing is becoming a very popular body piercing for people of all ages.  Nose jewelry comes in two sizes; 18 gauge and 20 gauge.  The most common styles available are nose screws (shown in photo), nose bones (straight with a small notch at the end to hold the piece in place), nose rings, and bend-to-fit (which are usually made of pliable sterling silver and are bent inside the nose for comfort).

It will take experimentation to determine which style is right for you.  Remember, if you change your mind about your nose piercing you can remove the nose jewelry at any time.  Most nose piercings will close completely on their own.  If yours does not close, it will leave a small opening about the size of an acne scar.
