This variation stemmed from a great customer of mine and her request for a pair of Abalone plugs. They turned out so lovely that I had to add them to my line. Abalone is a type of shell, also known as "paua". It is a dark kind of pearlescent and shimmers beautifully. They fit right in with the rest. These classy flared gauges of solid abalone are lined with sterling silver. The range of colors complement each other so well. The abalone shell is flush with the silver on two of the four faces. On the other side, it is silver. Slight flare with the silver and small groove in the middle fit to the gauge size.
Keep in mind, all shell is unique. I will do my very best to use only the most quality pieces of abalone to complement each of the pairs I make. They will always be slightly different because these are made to order.
These gauges have a simple and elegant contrast and look great with anything.
Comes in pairs of two.
(Shown in pictures is size 0g plugs)
The width of the plugs is 1/2"
Sizes range from 4g to 3/4 inch.
Please have a look at my reviews. Many mention the high quality and craftsmanship that go into each piece I make.
*[Why 0g is more expensive than 00g]: I use silver sheet to make 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.
[Why 2g and 4g are more expensive than 00g]: Making such small pieces requires a lot more attention to detail and a lot more work (not to mention patience). In watching the small details, it takes a little longer than my average set of gauges.

Yes! I do make 6g size plugs! They have a slightly 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.
