Please help me find a gold labret 1mm X 8mm

I've got a ring in my nose piercing which is really irritating it I'm desperate to go back to a bar but the bar I had was one of those horrible cork screw ones. I went back to the piercer which didn't have any stock but said I should order a labret 1mm X 8mm. It seems that the standard size is 1.2mm X 8mm so I haven't found anything yet.

I want something that looks gold and ideally is a moon shape but at this point I'd be just happy with any shape as long as it's gold and has the right measurements.

Thank you!!

Have you tried Etsy?
You might need to go into each listing until you find what you are after but there must be something on there.

I love a google challenge. I believe an 18 gauge is a 1mm and this should be the right size

8mm might be too long for a nostril piercing, mine is 6.4mm (US sizing) so I wouldn't spend a lot on one til you've tried out for a comfortable size.

Etsy is my go to for jewellery, something like this?

or - I've bought from both of these sellers before

@BeingHeldAtHunPoint I don't know why I never think of Etsy.

@Mylittlesandwich that's a beautiful one thank you. Once I'm 100% sure on size I'll go for that.

@Lellochip brilliant thanks! I've ordered the first one, hopefully it will be the right size...I do have a thick nose! 😂 Good advice on not spending a lot just yet, it won't be the end of the world of it doesn't fit. I can splash a bit more when I'm certain.
