Gauge refers to the thickness of jewelry wire. The measurements are counter-intuitive because the smaller the number, the thicker the wire and vice-versa. The thicker wires are often used to create specific shapes or the bases of jewelry, while the thinner wires are used for wrapping.
In the chart below, the gauge is listed to the left followed by the actual size of diameter in millimeters and inches. You can refer to the following recommended usage and choose according to your own needs.

Difference between Ion Plating(IP) and Vacuum Plating

Electroplating process of our stainless steel jewelry is divided into three kinds, including vacuum ion plating(IP), vacuum plating and water electroplating. For the thickness of layer, it is influenced by the electroplating process and electroplating time, the longer the plating time, the thicker the plating layer is and the longer the color preserve. Below is a brief comparison of ion plating, vacuum plating and water galvanization color durability.
