Two very established truths: piercings are often super painful, and they also happen to be very of-the-moment. Case in point, in recent years models for Givenchy, Rodarte, and Dries van Noten have sported fake versions, which has us thinking a temporary option might be best for those of you who have been dying to experiment with the trend, but can't commit due to the inevitable ouch-factor—plus is piercer's remorse a thing?
LA-based jewelry line Established, which counts celebs like Kate Hudson and Lily Aldridge as fans, has a few painless styles (no holes needed!) including this double-pronged piece, which comes in yellow, white, or rose gold (as well as this pave diamond one, which will set you back $1,610). Clip one on and become a complete badass—if only for just one night. No one has to know that when you get home you're going to snuggle up sans lip ring with cats and Hulu.
