Herein lies a gallery of our offerings of labret shapes in natural materials,
as well as ethnographic labret pieces.

Please visit the specific material pages on the rest of this website
to view full information about availability, prices, and sizing.
Labrets have a straight shaft with an attached backing disc. Our backing discs are either round or oval. Of course these can be worn in more than just a labret piercing, especially if a one-flare design is desired.
Sizes range from 16ga up to 3/4" in horn or bone, and 6ga through 5/8" or larger in stone.
Shown below include some inlay possibilities, including opal inlay horn labrets, and turquoise inlay in obsidian.
Some people have used other shapes such as saddles or cylinders with one or two o-rings in a variety of materials for labret jewelry instead. Examples of these shapes can be found elsewhere in this website.
Materials utilized and shown here include:
water buffalo horn, bone, fossilized mammoth and walrus ivory, Mexican amber, obsidian, jasper, psilomelane, quartz crystal, jade, labradorite, and tribal labrets in aluminum, copper, and clay.
Custom wood (6ga minimum) or one-side solid bamboo pieces (7ga minimum) can also be made to order.
We do not currently offer custom stone nor amber.
Looking for body jewelry for other piercings?
Other body jewelry offerings for non-earlobe piercings include:
ethnic septum rings, upper ear cartilege jewelry (hoops or dangling earrings from India, and gold internally threaded barbells from S. India), and custom conch and tongue shapes from hardwood.
There are a lot of possibilities for other shapes which can be used in a number of areas, depending on the thickness of the piercing and the appropriateness of the shape. For example, we have had customers use claw shapes in upper ear or navel piercings, cylinder shapes for nipple, conch, and a variety of below the belt piercings, and one-flares for all manner of things. Be creative!
Mexican amber labrets!
Many have bubbles, swirl flow patterns, and dark spots of organic debris.
Check out the current sizes we have and more details over on our amber page.
We currently have 8ga to 11/16" or so.
Stone labrets in a wide variety of rocks, such as:
black obsidian (sometimes with a hint of smoky translucency), silver sheen obsidian,
snowflake obsidian, green jade, turquoise, red jasper, psilomelane, quartz crystal, and labradorite.
Note that most big-gauge stone labrets are made with oval backing discs,
some of which are curved to fit the gum line.
We currently have 6ga to 7/8" or so.
:: Ethnic and Tribal Labret Jewelry ::
Most of the jewelry below is quite large, and some would be difficult to wear,
though we've had customers who have sported similar ones!
They are also great as display, museum, or collector's pieces.
These can all be found on our Ethnographic Jewelry pages.
