This pair of Rose Plugs is hand carved from Bloodwood. The rich wood is a beautiful red color that really accentuates the beauty of the carving detail. These plugs are double flared with the front flare being the back of the rose, and a gentle flare in the back. 8g - 0g have a length of about 5/16" from the back of the rose to the end of the plug, and 00g - 1/2" have a length of about 3/8" from the back of the rose to the end of the plug. The dimensions across the rose are as follows:
8g = 5/16" rose
6g = 3/8" rose
4g = 3/8" rose
2g = 1/2" rose
0g = 9/16" rose
00g = 5/8" rose
7/16" = 5/8" rose
1/2"= 3/4" rose

These are really lovely plugs, even at their small size the rose is about 1cm across they are beautifully detailed. The rosewood is very dark. I wear them with classy outfits. I do recommend putting some skin-friendly oil on the plugs and your lobes before wearing as the wood seems to stick to skin after a while.
