Single Flared White Jade Plugs
White Jade Stone Plugs
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 compiled by Hsu Shen of the Eastern Han, the five virtues of jade were: benevolence, integrity, intelligence, bravery, trustworthiness which were exactly those expected of a gentleman. Jade plugs and ear spools have been found from Asian tribes and across South America.
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.
