Glass spiral gauge earrings are popular for their decorative appearance and ornate, tapered designs. Glass spiral gauges will usually stay in place without o-rings because of their elaborate shapes. Glass pinchers have a curved shape and are the easiest hanging style to handle. These pieces are tapered and some require that you secure them in place with o-rings on either side. Pinchers are commonly used for septum or earlobe piercings. Glass hangers are usually heavier than other hanging styles and therefore ideal for anyone with stretched earlobes. Many of these styles are available between sizes 14G and 16mm (3/4”) and offer a unique look to any piercing.
