Nose piercings are more widely accepted today than in years past. There are very few employers that completely ban them though some do require that employees choose flesh colored nose rings or require them to only wear studs of a certain size or smaller.
Make sure you keep the policies of your work place in mind when selecting your starter nose rings or you could be forced to make a painful decision that could result in the loss of your piercing or the loss of your job.
It’s important to choose a good nose ring that fits your lifestyle and your work requirements when you first get your nose pierced because you will have to wear that particular nose ring for quite some time. You can’t change it for several weeks so choose wisely. This is not the time to go with Hello Kitty nose rings, nose bone jewelry, or exotic nose rings that might draw problems at work and/or school. Stud nose rings make excellent starter nose rings for people of all ages and you’ll be changing nose rings before too long and can transition to something that suits your tastes better when that time arrives.
But there are concerns other than fit and ability to wear nose rings to work that you should be concerned about when selecting the right nose rings for your nose. Some people are interested in the smallest nose rings because they have a low pain tolerance threshold. Those would be the 20 gauge nose rings. The lower the number of the gauge is the bigger the hole that is required for the piercing. This means that a 16 gauge piercing is bigger than a 20g piercing.
Beyond the actual size of the piercing though remain other factors to keep in mind so that you get a suitable ring for your needs and tastes. Real diamond nose rings are all the rage in some circles. They can be elegant. They are tasteful in almost any setting. Most importantly though, they offer little interference or risk of causing damage to your nose if they get caught on something and pulled out or stretched.
Corkscrew nose rings on the other hand can be risky in certain lines of work or if you engage in activities that have you doing a lot of “up close” work where the ring could get caught or pulled somehow. The same holes true with big nose rings that are giant hoops hanging down, nose bone jewelry, and straight nose rings.
