Labret studs are beautiful body jewelry pieces mostly designed for lip piercings. Labret studs are made in such a way to be both discreet and attractive. These jewelry pieces are specially designed for lip piercings. They are made to sit comfortably on the face and allow for eating, talking and all of the other lip movements. Labret studs typically have a straight post and a ball on one end while the other end is typically flat. The flat end is designed to sit comfortably inside of the mouth. It is very important that this flat end is perfectly smooth so it is safe for teeth and gums. The ball on the labret can come in many different designs: it can be simple or ornamented. Typical decorations include gems but there are other possibilities, too. It is important to note that labret studs may have a plain design but it doesn’t take away from their beauty or effectiveness. This is why they are so popular with many piercings. Labret studs are typically used for lip piercing but there are some other piercing types that use them, too, such as nose piercings, eyebrow piercings, ear piercings, and more.
It is important not to confuse labret studs (a jewelry style) with labret piercings. Labret piercing is the most popular lip piercing. It is done on the middle of the lower lip, centrally. It uses labret studs as jewelry so this is how this jewelry type got its name. However, it is important not to confuse the piercing and jewelry style since they are two very different things.
