What is the width of a 150 gauge bracelet?

For anyone who knows jewelry, how would you describe a gauge? A width of a chain? I am getting into buying sterling silver but am trying to figure out the width in millimeters. Thanks.

    1.5 millimeters.  Very, very tiny.  Chains come in numerous sizes, numerous widths and they have links, not generally solid pieces.  For a cuff bracelet, you would use a sheet of silver, cut it, pattern, shape it, etc.  You wouldn't even notice a 150 gauge bracelet, made of silver wire.
