A gold labret stud can be used in a whole myriad of locations—from a conch piercing, to a labret piercing, to a helix piercing, and others. Gold is a popular choice for jewelry because it stands out against the skin, especially on dark complexions. The appeal of a gold labret ring is that it appears to be floating in whatever piercing you choose. But if 14k solid gold isn’t your style, you can always choose another finish, like rose gold. With a threaded labret, the back twists off for easy cleaning and access.
