Nose piercings have become an increasingly popular body piercing, especially in QTBIPOC communities. Switch up your look and stand out with this solid yellow gold nose stud!
Pre-colonial Filipinx people believed that gold had the ability to hold our ancestor’s energy and stimulated the goodness of our souls. They also wore gold as a form of protection. To keep unwanted spirits from entering a person, it was important to wear gold at the end of bodily openings like the nose, ears & eyes; in order to close off entry from malevolent entities.
Nose studs are 20 gauge (0.8mm). Need a different gauge? Do you have sensitive skin or allergies and want to upgrade to 18kt yellow gold or nickle-free 14kt white gold? Contact me to custom order.
