Rose Gold Plated Labret Stud & Ball - 1.2mm (16G)
|These Rose Gold Plated Labret Studs are plated and individually hand finished by us in the UK, you will not find these anywhere else with such a large choice of different lengths and ball sizes. They are 1.2mm (16 gauge) in thickness and available in different lengths (6mm, 7mm, 8mm, 9mm, 10mm, 12mm or 14mm) - the length measurement is taken internally in between the base of the labret and the ball (so it is basically the past that goes through your piercing).
We offer these with ball sizes of either 3mm (which is the standard size) or 4mm. They look stunning in Monroe piercings, facial piercings and also ear piercings.
Labret studs are particularly comfortable to wear in ear piercings including tragus and helix because they are inserted from the back of the piercing - the disc is fixed to the bar and only the front ball has to be screwed on so they are easy to fit and also the flat studs at the back are very comfortable to wear.
These labrets are externally threaded, meaning the thread is on the stud and the ball has a hole to accommodate this, they are compatible with the 1.2mm threaded attachments that we sell.
Measuring Your Piercing - Jewellery Measuring Guide
Wearing the correct size of body jewellery is very important. If you wear a size that is too small it could easily irritate or hurt your piercing. If your jewellery is too big it can easily catch your clothes resulting in a damaged piercing.
The measurements to consider with each piece of jewellery are as follows:
Length / Diameter of the jewellery. (A / B in the diagram above)
The above example pictures show you the measurements that you need to take for a Banana Bar, a Ball Closure Ring (BCR), a Barbell and a Labret. Only measure a piece of jewellery that currently fits you correctly.
An alternative method is to directly measure your piercing between both holes using a ruler, although this can sometimes be difficult on your own.
Thickness / Gauge of the jewellery (C in the diagram)
The most common sizes are as follows:
* Navel, Tongue and Nipple jewellery - 1.6mm (or 14 Gauge)
* Eyebrow - 1.2mm (16 Gauge)
* Nose - 1.0mm (18 Gauge)
* Labret piercings are usualy either 1.2mm (16 Gauge) or 1.6mm (14 Gauge)
These are the the standard thicknesses of body jewellery that we sell, so unless you have an unusual piercing, you do not have to worry about this measurement.
We often get asked what are the sizes of jewellery in my country. In Europe thickness is shown in mm but in other parts of the world people use gauge. The following table should help you convert the sizes.
* 1mm = 18 gauge
* 1.2mm = 16 gauge
* 1.6mm = 14 gauge
* 2mm = 12 gauge
* 2.4mm = 10 gauge
* 3.2mm = 8 gauge
* 4mm = 6 gauge
* 5mm = 4 gauge
* 6mm = 2 gauge
* 8mm = 0 gauge
* 6mm = 1/4"
* 8mm = 5/16"
* 10mm = 3/8"
* 11mm = 7/16"
* 12mm = 1/2"
* 14mm = 9/16"
* 16mm = 5/8"
* 18mm = 11/16"
* 19mm = 3/4"
* 21mm 13/16"
