Double Flare Glass Retainer by Glasswear Studios

Product Information

The clear double flare retainer is hand blown by Glasswear Studios. The 18g and 14g are made from fused quartz glass, 16g and 12g are made from borosilicate glass. They have a small micro-flare on the end that allows them to be worn without an o-ring. Gauge tolerance is +-0.1 millimeter. Please note these are glass and can break if forced to bend. Not recommended for athletic or violent activities. Choose your size below.

We recommend cutting the heat sealed bag with scissors and not tearing it open. The plastic stretches easily and may put stress on smaller glass items.

Perfect length

I have very thick nostrils, and 6 mm nose bones just aren’t quite long enough, but it’s extremely hard to find anything longer! I’m in health care, so I have to wear retainers to work, and these are PERFECT. Perfect length, it hides my piercing, and the flare on the end is big enough that it doesn’t fall out of my nose easily.

Great for African Americans!

I'd searched & spent lots on retainers that said "clear" but showed up totally white on my skin, making it even more obvious than the tiny micro gem I was needing to hide. This one is glass, actually CLEAR, and blends in well. Also sits flush against my nose, not raised. My only complaint is there wasn't a 20g size so I had to get an 18. I made it work & Would definitely purchase another.
