Tag Archives: Large Gauge Body Jewellery

Finding lightweight large gauge jewellery can sometimes be hard, but here at Body Jewellery Shop we have a great selection of large gauge plugs that are also lightweight, which is very important for comfort and maintaining a particular gauge. The problem with some plugs is that they get heavy over a certain gauge, which means that they gradually stretch your ears over time. Metal large gauge flesh plugs can also put undue stress on your stretching, which can lead to thinning at the bottom of your ear. The best lightweight options are silicone, wood and acrylic flesh plugs, which remain comfortable even at large gauges.

Lightweight Large Gauge Hollow Plugs

If you are looking for a lightweight plug over 20mm, a hollow design is usually the best way to go. By simply using less material, flesh tunnels are very lightweight, especially when made of super-light acrylic and silicone. Silicone in particular is excellent at this size: it is very light and flexible, squashes down under pressure and is extremely biocompatible. All three flesh plugs shown here come in a range of different colours and gauges. My top recommendation would be the Kaos eyelet in the middle – it is high quality, very comfortable and comes in over 10 colours, including UV options.

Lightweight Large Gauge Flesh Plugs

A solid flesh plug is by its very nature heavier than a hollow plug, so if you want this type of jewellery it is important to choose a lightweight material. These three plugs are a good place to start and all are very light. I would recommend the blue star flesh plug in particular. It has a hollow-backed design that reduces its weight even further and the back edge unscrews for easy insertion.

Find the perfect large gauge jewellery for your piercings with our range of large gauge circular barbells. We have a great choice of large circular barbells, including lightweight materials and superior quality machined metals. It is so important to find the right jewellery for your large gauge piercings, both in terms of comfort and in terms of maintaining your desired gauge. Our range allows you to choose the best of both and make the best match for your piercings.

PMMA Large Gauge Circular Barbells

PMMA is a lightweight acrylic that is ideal for large gauge circular barbells. It is durable, lightweight and feels very comfortable to wear. Another key feature is the polished smooth surface. This means that the jewellery slides cleanly through newly stretched piercings and is able to move freely through the stretching. PMMA is also available in a great choice of colours, so you can mix and match to create your look.

Metal Large Gauge Circular Barbells

Large gauge metal jewellery can be very heavy, something that can be a positive or a negative depending on your gauge. These metal circular barbells weigh down your stretchings slightly, so they will cause extra stretching in all but very well established stretched piercings. They are beautifully machined in high quality titanium and surgical steel, so you get maximum comfort at all times.

6mm Steel Smooth Segment Ring

6mm Smooth Segment Ring

Smooth segment rings are an essential piece of body jewellery and here at BJS we love the smooth, seamless look that they give. Segment rings have always been hard to find in larger sizes but I’m happy to announce that we now stock a 6mm smooth segment ring. This large smooth segment ring is perfect for stretched ear piercings and it’s a great alternative to large BCRs.

A smooth segment ring works in the same way as a BCR except that instead of a captive ball, it has a segment that “pops” out. This means it looks like a smooth, endless ring and has a flatter, smoother profile. Our 6mm smooth segment ring is very comfortable and easy to keep clean. It is expertly machined from 316L surgical steel, which is perfectly smooth. You can rotate the ring 360 degrees through the piercing and it looks awesome. We also have smooth segment rings in smaller gauges and brightly coloured UV acrylic smooth segment rings that go right up to 8mm/0G .

Large gauge body jewellery is available in a wide variety of different jewellery types, including the most popular large gauge ball closure rings, large gauge barbells, large gauge bananabells or large gauge curved barbells, large gauge circular barbells, large gauge tunnels and plugs and large gauge stretching accessories.
