Single Flared Amethyst Plugs
Amethyst Stone Plugs
Amethyst is a beautiful violet, plum, and lavender tone of quartz commonly used in jewelry. Amethyst is the birthstone for February, and the Greeks believed it prevented drunkenness, to the extent they made jewelry and drinking containers from it to prevent intoxication (these plugs would make a perfect 21st birthday gift!) Our amethyst comes from Brazil and Europe. It ranges from a deep near black purple, through reddish plums, blueish violets, and lavenders. Occasionally inclusions of quartz create grey and white sections, and sometimes even bits of browns and tans.
Our Single Flare stone plugs are made with large front flares for security but also give the added aesthetic of looking larger overall. Each single flare plug has a convex front which contributes to that same desires look. The backs of our plugs have a long wearable, ranging from 13-16mm to accommodate all ears. They also have a gentle, rounded shape ideal for ease of insertion. Our plugs do not have an O-ring groove, as we suggest wearing an O-ring one to two sizes below for security. 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.
