Single Flare Glass Retainer by Glasswear Studios

Product Information

The clear single 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. Three clear silicone o-rings are included. 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.

Nice but Hard to Secure

The little rubber band is impossible to get on. I actually had to just put tape on it to secure it for my MRI.


they are a great piece of jewelry. comfortable and hard to see if not looking for them. the excess o rings are nice, as smaller sizes are easy to lose

GREAT Retainer

Bought as a retainer for my daughter's cartilage piercing during cheerleading. Discreet, comfortable and no issues from plastic.

Rebecca Tindol
Super comfortable

I had to take out my regular cartilage earrings because of nursing school (we are only allowed two piercings on our lower earlobe and are only allowed clear earrings in other areas). These were PERFECT. They're extremely comfortable, nonchalant, simple, and I get to keep my piercings.
