Gemstone Cartilage Earrings | O-ring

Colorful, Semi-Precious Gemstone Earrings

Featuring some of my favorite semi-precious gemstones, the single flare plugs in this collection are the perfect size to use as tragus earrings - they also look awesome in helix, conch, and multiple lobe piercings! The 3mm earring size is big enough to get noticed, but isn't so large that it gets in the way of other piercings or hangs awkwardly off your tragus. I'm always interested in adding more unusual or hard to find stones to this collection, so if you have any suggestions please get in touch!

I carefully set all of my stones by hand individually using traditional stone setting tools so that they are completely secure in their silver bezel settings - I never use glue in my work. Because there's not any glue, you don't have to worry about the stone falling out if you accidentally get your earring wet. These gemstone cartilage earrings are sold singly (so if you need a pair order two!).

How do I know what length to buy?

You will need to know how much wearable length you need to buy a single flare plug. If you have a labret stud for your tragus or helix piercing that fits really well, you can simply use the length of that post as your wearable length. Don't have any labret jewelry? No problem - you just need to do a little bit of measuring to find out how thick that area of your ear is. You can find my handy guide for measuring this here: Measuring Your Cartilage Piercing for Wearable Length
