Olivewood plugs with Turquoise inlays. Turquoise cabochons are set in brass bezels and secured with a hardware setting to the wood. We use no adhesives or glue in our fine stone settings.
Some turquoise cabochons are naturally more blue than others (see detail photo for an example of the variation), and the shade of turquoise used is strictly dependent on what we have in stock at a given time. The front flare on our 8mm (0g) and 9mm (00g) are oversized to allow space for the stone inlays

We use 6mm turquoise inlays for plug sizes 8mm (0g) to 12mm.

10mm turquoise inlays for plug sizes 13mm (1/2”) to 19mm (3/4”),

12mm turquoise inlays for plug sizes 20mm to 26mm (1”)

For the time being we can only offer our Olivewood and Turquoise inlays up to 1” as made to order plugs. However we are more than happy to offer larger sizes as custom orders, so don’t be afraid to send us an email for any sizes not listed.

Materials

We are very specific about the woods we use for our body jewelry, and only use woods that are known to be safe for wear in stretched body piercings. In the rare instance your body has an adverse reaction to organic wood jewelry please discontinue wearing the jewelry. And please, do not use wood jewelry to stretch your piercings.

Shipping & Returns

Each piece of jewelry is made to order. Please allow 2-3 weeks for jewelry to ship. Our jewelry arrives sealed in plastic, and we are unable to accept returns if the jewelry has been removed from that plastic.Please examine your jewelry carefully before removal.

Dimensions

We list our jewelry sizes in milimeters first then in fractions of inches. Because the metric to imperial conversion isn't perfect we will round up or down to the closest milimeter. If you would like to order in half milimeters please add that to our notes section at checkout. Our wearable lengths increase as the diameter of the jewelry increases. Our shop has a standard wearable length of each size that we have found works for most people. If you would like a custom wearable length please include that in our notes section at checkout. Wearable lengths are not the same as the total length of the jewelry.

Care Instructions

All of our jewelry is polished and sealed with a hard carnuba wax. Even so, wood is a porous organic material and can be damaged by water. Please do not allow your jewelry to get wet as it will damamge the finish and possibly raise the grain of the wood.

As wood jewelry is worn it will age, often that can be seen in the darkening or color shifting of jewelry. We recommend periodically wiping down your jewelry with a dry microfiber cloth. As you wear your jewelry it can also lose some of its luster. Buffing your jewelry is a good option to maintain its shine, as is oiling it from time to time with an appropriate skin safe oil (we recommend vitamin E oil)
