Ampersand, Gold Nose Stud No.2
The hand-stamped ampersand design of this solid karat gold nose stud was hand-smithed using recycled 18KY yellow gold and then soldered onto a 14KY yellow gold commercial stud. For my first foray into pierced body jewelry beyond the ear, I wanted to go with a size trusted to be ideal for the nose and these lightweight 22 gauge solid gold wire studs were perfect for me to use.
Approximate Circumference of the mostly round disk is between: 3.5-4mm
