The cost of real amber continues to rise, making the purchase of real amber plugs prohibitive for most of us. This double flared plug is made from an acrylic synthetic amber. As with real amber, no two plugs are the same. Each one has inclusions just like real amber. If you like the look of amber, this affordable plug is a nice alternative.
All gauges are about 1/2" long end-to-end, with a wearable area of about 5/16". Larger gauges have a slightly shorter wearable area.
The 6g, 4g, and 2g have pretty big flares and should only be worn in well-healed holes. For example: The 6g flares are almost 2g.
I was so excited for these earrings. I have two sets of gauges in my ears, 5/8 and 2g. I purchased a set of these earrings for each gauge. The 5/8 plugs are beautiful and resemble real amber. I was very disappointed that the 2g plugs are very yellow and do not have the same amber tint as the larger size. The point of buying matching sets was to have them look the same. It is not worth the time and cost to send the 2g earrings back.
I have these and love the way they look. They look like real amber! I had gotten a pair off another website and was disappointed in how fake it looked. These ones actually appear to be real and I'm so glad I got them!
I've had a pair of o-ringed amber plugs for years. I like them, but they never feel secure.
The flares on these synthetics are nice and deep, and also make the surface a little bigger, to catch more light and really show off the internal texture. A great plug that's a little outside the ordinary.
