Double Flared White Jade Plugs
White Jade Stone Plug
Jade is a highly traditional stone in many East Asian cultures. Traditionally seen in green hues, a sub-type of Nephrite Jade comes in a beautiful creamy white, sometimes called Mutton Jade. Our White Jade has a creamy under hue, and some pairs can have subtle tones of peach, pink, and yellow. Jade was considered the imperial gem of china, and historically was valued similarly to gold and diamonds in the west. There were six ritual jades used for certain religious rites, and gentleman always wore jade pendants. According to Shu Wen (說文) compiled by Hsu Shen of the Eastern Han (東漢許慎), the five virtues of jade were: benevolence, integrity, intelligence, bravery, trustworthiness (仁、義、禮、智、信) which were exactly those expected of a gentleman. Jade plugs and ear spools have been found from Asian tribes and across South America.
Our Double Flare stone plugs feature a comfortable 9mm wearable, with 1-2.5mm flares. All of our double flare plugs have slightly convex or convex faces depending on the stone, which allow for full feature of the stone itself. The flares are a gentle saddle style for ease of insertion and removal and wear comfortably. All our stones can be cared for by washing gently with warm soapy water, with a mild soap free from dyes, fragrances and other harsh additives. One that that is important to remember is that stone is a natural material, and so our plugs can sometimes vary /- .5mm. Pattern, banding, and inclusion may vary from pair to pair as well.
