Please note the size associated with the selection you choose to ensure it is appropriate for the decoration on which it will be worn.

Large: 5/16-inch
Small: 3/16-inch (JROTC)
Miniature: 1/8-inch

Gold stars are worn with medals and ribbons issued by the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Public Health Service, and National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration to indicate the second and subsequent awards of a particular medal. Unlike bronze service stars, which can also be used to indicate participation in campaigns or battles, gold stars are used only to indicate subsequent award of Naval personal military decorations only. Gold stars are issued in two sizes: 5/6-inch for wear on the suspension ribbon or ribbon bar and 1/8-inch for wear on the miniature medal. (We offer the 3/16-inch gold star because it is used as an attachment for JRTOC ribbons.)
