Now this I am stoked about. They look gorgeous!
Beautiful slightly flared gauges of shined Natural Coober Pedy Opal stone lined with Sterling Silver. The opal is flush with the silver on the faces.
THIS IS NATURAL OPAL! -- not synthetic or lab made opal
**Because the opal is 100% natural, these gauges are more expensive than my other gauges. Also, to save everyone the cost, I am only having one of each plugs' face show the opal. The other side will be closed off with silver. (opal on one side, flat silver on the other)**
Slight double flare with the silver and small groove in the center fit to the gauge size.
Comes in pairs of two.
The width of the plugs is 1/2" - I can adjust slightly upon request.
Sizes range from 6g to 9/16 inch.
Now offering 24k gold plating for an additional $30 per pair. No professional pictures of the gold plating yet on the listing, but please feel free to reach out for pictures that I do have for gold plated options.
*[Why 0g is more expensive than 00g]: I use silver sheet to make all these gauges. It is very hard to make an 8mm tube using 18g sheet. It normally requires about twice the work, in the end, as 00g and larger with the intricacies.
Feel free to ask any questions.

Yes! I definitely could make 8g size plugs! The hole in the silver face will be pretty small, so it won't always look perfect with certain options. The best options would be the ebony options, the crushed stone options and synthetic opal. They will have a different look to them, so feel free to request some photo examples and/or a custom order.
Most of the time, YES! But please ask ahead and don't assume that I can get it to you quicker. I make every item to order and by hand. Sometimes I have all the materials needed to crank out a piece with high priority. So feel free to ask, but know that I usually charge a tiny bit extra to rush the making process. And feel free to request expedited shipping. It will be an extra charge for whatever shipping option you choose, but I would be happy to make it happen.

Once again, Cole has provided an outstanding and stunning piece of jewelry along with excellent customer service. These opal plugs are so, so pretty and I've gotten quite a few compliments on them already. The shipping and communication was prompt and thorough. Those and the superb jewelry are some of the many reasons that I appreciate shopping at this shop. My many thanks to this shop!

WOW! What a couple pieces of beautiful art! These gauges are absolutely stunning especially in the sun. I love the way they fit and feel. Now that I’m getting older with gauged ears I was looking for more sophisticated, high end jewelry. C. Sebald, your entire selection is breathtaking, simple and refined. Incredible. I will be back for more pieces in the future!!
