This Single Flared retainer is available in 18g through 12g, and you can choose lengths from 1/4" all the way to 1/2". 18g and 14g are quartz, and 16g and 12g are pyrex. Glass retainers are NOT recommended for athletic use. (While they are very strong, they are glass and can break.)

  • Glass body jewelry is hand made of natural materials, so gauge, length, color and design may vary. Such differences are NOT considered a defect.
  • For colored glass, smaller gauges are often lighter in color and larger gauges are darker.
  • All GWS jewelry is sized to the millimeter. Gauges are approximate. 00g is measured at 9mm, 000g is measured at 10mm.
  • For items that come in pairs, you can expect that you will receive a pair of jewelry (including each individual piece within the pair) that is within .5 mm of stated size for jewelry up to 1/2" gauge (12.5 mm) and within 1mm of stated size for jewelry larger than 1/2" gauge. If you receive a pair that is not an EXACT match, please know that is the best matched pair available.
  • For Jellyfish, Mushroom, and Flame plugs, single flare 8g - 2g will be in "ball" flare style, and 0g and larger will be in the standard dome front style. Every gauge of double flared will be in the standard dome front style.

Very comfortable piece, but not as invisible as I wanted. My lack of experience with retainers could have something to do with that. Probably won't purchase another retainer.

Worked great for my lip. At a glance, most people didn't even notice it. Only suggestion would be to buy extra O-rings. I lost the one that it came with and was using an O-ring that was too big when I ended up biting the retainer in half. Not a fun experience and my piercer laughed at me.
Editor's Note: See our Free Stuff page for extra o-rings!.
