Nose Jewlery leaves alot to be desired,

Time period?
Location?
Ball and Cone? Triangle? Nose Jewel?
Real pierced septum or not?
Gauge of current piercing?

Lots of silversmiths out there, each with their strengths and weeknesses.

My rear septum piercing is 16g, because that was the smallest gauge that is recommended for that part of the body. But many original nose rings have 18 or 20g wires. Thus I have to work with one person who will make my jewlery with 16g. Some smiths will do that, others wont. Im quite happy to have a slightly larger than original hole so that it wont rip out as easily.

You want to go with smaller ball and cone or a simple triangle. The "Gorget" style while documented to the woodlands, is much harder to execute in a non pierced style. Most of the clip on gorgets just dont have the "Swing" that a real one would give you.

And you really should just go ahead and get your septum pierced. It really does not hurt that much. And you can wear a horseshoe shaped retainer and no one will be none the wiser. Ive briefed General Officers and Cab Sec level folks wearing mine.

I have some ball and cone and triangle variants for who ever may need them in both the clip-in and pierced type and the falsies look just as good as the pierced ones.

Fred will attest to that as he has some of my work.
