Tools used for stretching ear lobes usually. Not an accessory, but many people do wear them as jewelry. It is not safe though because it can imbalance your ears, since the sides are different sizes. The gauge size is at the bigger end of the taper.

The cowardly way a guy goes about phasing out a girl by gradually responding to calls and texts less and less or by responding only with short answers. (can be done by girls too)
This guy was totally into me and was texting me all the time but now he's giving me the taper! He responded to my last text with just a one-word answer and I haven't heard from him in over a week.
