Collection: Labret Plug

The name Labret is derived from the Latin labrum, which means lip. With the exception of the Eskimo piercing, the piercing on the lower lip is called a labret piercing, and on the upper lip one finds the designations Madonna piercing and Medusa piercing.

Labret piercings are usually placed very prominently on the face and are therefore very noticeable. With our handmade Labret Plug you have the right jewellery.
Use of the Labret Plug

The labret Plug is mainly used for lip piercings, but also very popular for ear piercings as well as for the nose. Labret studs are also very popular as ear studs, because the plate does not press uncomfortably, unlike an ear stud.

Construction of the labret stud

A Labret Plug consists of a plate with a piercing bar on one side and a locking ball or stud with an internal thread on the other. Due to this shape the Labret Plug provides the necessary support in the area of the lip piercing and is comfortable to wear.


The piercing rod usually has a thickness of 1.2 or 1.6 mm, but can also be made by us in other thicknesses. In our goldsmith's workshop we often make labret studs with a thickness of 1.0 mm for the ear area or stronger labret rods with a thickness of 2.0 mm or 2.4 mm for stretched labret piercings.

Materials used for our Labret Plug

The handmade Labret Plug are made in our goldsmith's workshop in yellow gold 750/000, red gold 750/000 and white gold 750/000. Some studs are set with diamonds and precious stones such as emeralds and rubies.
