Gauges - Thickness of the post

18 Gauge - 1mm

20 Gauge - 0.8mm

22 Gauge - 0.6mm

The nose piercing is one of the fastest and most adaptable piercings, and will adapt to whichever size gauge you put in it. If you have an 18G piercing you can wear 20G nose studs, nose screws or nose rings as well and your piercing will adapt very quickly. If you want to go back to an 18G, it will adapt.  If going from a thinner gauge nose stud, nose screw or nose ring to a thicker gauge, you can stretch your piercing by putting some pure vitamin e oil on your nose jewelry and your nose piercing and slowly guiding the stud through.  If you are going from a thicker gauge to a thinner gauge, place the stud in just before bedtime and place a small round band-aid over top to keep it from falling out.  By morning it should be adapted and wearable. Please note, you should only go up or down by one gauge at a time.
