Our original metal capped Delrin oval labret plug with a 2mm thick piece of solid 9ct yellow gold.
Creating the illusion of a solid gold labret plug but reducing both the weight and cost along with offering a greater opportunity to carve a more comfortable piece over a fabricated or cast metal plug.
The cap is hardware set and no adhesives are used in its construction, on these pieces the thickness of the metal is not included in the wearable length and is only measured up to the joint as we intended these to be worn with the cap sitting out front of the piercing. Our standard wearable length is 11mm unless requested otherwise, we strongly recommend that you do not order a reduced wearable length in order to conceal the joint within your lip.
We size our oval plugs by circumference, so they will have the same circumference as a round plug, order with confidence that your oval will fit.
To measure your oval to a round size equivalent, wrap a narrow strip of paper around your piece, mark where it overlaps the end, lay the strip out and measure between the marks in millimetres. This is the circumference, then divide that number by 3.14, (Pi) this will tell you the size of your plug.
We strongly recommend you correctly measure your oval labret plug by circumference as explained to avoid miss-ordering an incorrect size, we will not replace pieces if you have failed to measure your current piece correctly.
All our PTFE & Delrin jewellery is handmade and as such, may vary in size by +/- 0.2mm to 0.3mm.
Although 9ct Yellow is the default option, we can offer these in 18ct as well as in rose gold, please contact us for a quote.
