Flares are a bit big but besides that I love them
Posted on 4/16/2013
I got these for my friend because she wanted something that looked as close to normal earrings as you can get at 2g, she loves them and wears them all the time.
Posted on 3/5/2013
These are extremely well made and beautiful, plus I don't have to worry about losing the o-rings or them falling out because the back screws on.

Gorgeous jewelry !!! But with that being said , I was discouraged to find out that the flares make it impossible to put in :( I had to upsize 2 sizes to wear these but then I faced problems getting these out after a day of wear ( my ears shrank to fit the saddle )
Posted on 2/22/2013
These were so beautiful but unfortunately I could not wear these until I stretched to a 4G and even then ... The flares are massive !
Posted on 2/14/2013
I didn't anticipate how large the ends of the plugs would be, so I can't wear them just yet. I ordered a 6g taper so that I can get them in eventually. They are very well made and feel substantial.

Flares way too big. Can't possibly wear them unless I size up a whole gauge.
Posted on 1/11/2013
These are beautiful gem plugs. They aren't too flashy and it doesn't even look like I have stretched ears. I'd totally recommend these to anyone.
Posted on 10/12/2012
Beautiful!! These are by far the classiest plugs I own. Solid construction, great sparkle!
Posted on 8/31/2012
flares were bigger than I had expected. It will take time for these to fit, but it'll be absolutely worth it!
Posted on 6/2/2012
I absolutely love these! Definetly one of my favourites. They're nice to have around when you just want a more simple type of look.
Posted on 12/12/2011
Definitely one of my favourites! I wear them to work or when I want my ears to look like I just have some nice studs in.
Posted on 6/5/2011
Very pretty, though the plugs were different in length. The flare is just larger than 2ga, and I haven't been at 2ga for long, so I can't wear them through 2ga earskins yet.
Posted on 6/2/2011
Just got these in the mail and they are lovely!
Unfortunately I am in the process of downsizing and these are still too small for me!
I may just get the 0g because I like them so much.
Posted on 5/16/2011
these look so classy. the flare on these is pretty big but i like it because they dont fall out when i sleep. they are definitely a great buy
Posted on 4/6/2011
These are beautiful plugs; however, the flares are somewhat large. I was able to get them in after a hot shower, but it was still rather difficult and left my lobes tender and sore. On the plus side, these are super sparkly and have a nice weight to them. If your ears are stretchy I definitely recommend these plugs.
Posted on 3/27/2011
These are very nice, but noticed they have a massive flare for an 8g. Flare is about a 4g. Gf had to stretch twice to fit in nicely. Other than the big flare she loves em'
Posted on 3/19/2011
These DO have large flares so beware but they are perfect for me since my ears loosen up on their own very fast and usually flares are nothing for me pretty quickly. So these are great!! They are very sparkly and pretty =0) Besides black and white plugs these are also an essential must have =0)
Posted on 3/19/2011
I bought them for my cartilage piercings that are 6g. I bought them in 8g in hopes the flare would be fine. It was ok (was still a tight squeeze even being at 6g for a long time it is still cartilage so wasn't a surprise) BUT after wearing them all day the cartilage shrunk down to 8g and it was a pain getting them out =0( So I def don't recommend these for cartilage piercings unless yours is very stretchy in that way..?
Posted on 1/27/2011
Super wide flares. Could not get them in until I stretched again. But they look great.
Posted on 1/10/2011
I agree, the flares are GIANT on these, and I haven't yet been able to get them in. I even tried using lotion. I haven't tried after the shower yet. They are very beautiful.
Posted on 12/13/2010
These plugs are gorgeous. I always get compliments on them in the work place. The flares are a bit small for my ears (my lobes are slightly larger than 0g) but are super comfortable and lightweight. They're also super affordable for dressy plug.
Posted on 12/10/2010
These are really cute, but unfortunately I haven't been able to wear them yet. The flare is HUGE. Maybe once I go up to a 6 I can get them in.
Posted on 11/28/2010
These are absolutely stunning!
They are super shiny, but somehow still subtle. I wore them for my wedding, and could not have been happier.
In terms of size - the DF is great: not so small that you'll lose the plugs, but not so big that it is hard to get in.
I'd definitely get these again.
Posted on 11/8/2010
The flare is VERY large on these (4g on an 8g plug). My ears aren't stretchy, so these are pretty much unwearable for me.
Posted on 10/14/2010
The flares were pretty big so it hurt a little taking them in and out at first. They're perfect for sports or swimming. AndI love how beautiful it looks in the sunlight. Plus no one can ever tell your ears are stretched.
Posted on 9/13/2010
I LOVE LOVE LOVE THESE! So cute, not too difficult to get in (I have one stretchy lobe and one not so stretchy lobe). I might have to get another pair just in case anything happens to them. I hope they make different color stones in this style, I would buy all of them! Great stuff!
Posted on 9/2/2010
I love these for downplaying my lobes yet having a a little sparkle. These have a nice weight but a healthy flare. I bought a size down because my ears are not DF friendly, but if your ears are stretchy go ahead and buy your size
Posted on 8/22/2010
These are awesome for this price. They're super-sparkly and great if you need to look more conservative for work or visiting Grandma. A bit heavy, but not a big deal for smaller sizes. The flares are pretty big, but it didn't take too much work to get them in; I've been swimming in them several times and never worried about them falling out.
Posted on 8/4/2010
These plugs are great quality and have some weight to them, which I like, since I've lost lighter plugs without knowing it. Problem is, I'm having a lot of trouble getting them in, since the flares are so big. My ears are healed and fairly stretchy, but these just won't go in.
Posted on 4/17/2010
These are the most amazing gauges. I bought them 4g, went up to a 2g, now I have to have them again!
Posted on 3/16/2010
I wear these plugs almost every day! They are incredibly comfortable and really cute. When they're in, because of how round the flare is, they don't even look like plugs, they just look like little CZ studs. They're great for work or special events where you may not want to be so overt with your stretched lobes.
Posted on 3/16/2010
Love these earrings. They are simple but have enough sparkle to stand out. I wear them to the office because they are simple & lightweight. No problems w/ answering phones like some other heavier earrings.
Posted on 12/4/2009
These were so awesome! I wore them to a wedding and nobody knew I had plugs in! And the price was excellent! The only problem was I had to stretch to a 6 in order to get them in, but they were really great.
Posted on 10/20/2009
These are great, very comfortable, not too heavy, and both sides can be used so its like two in one. One of my favorites!
Posted on 9/14/2009
Really liked the weight of these earrings. They had a nice sparkle but the flare may be just a bit larger than I needed. Very versatile though. I may order another pair since I lost one. Recommend for everyday use.
Posted on 9/4/2009
I loved these plugs so much, I had a little bit of an issue with the 6g being a bit small for my ears, the flares went in no problems, but they were absolutely beautiful. When I got the 4g, I cant get them in now, they are still gorgeous and soon they will fit so I am happy to have purchased these. Once you get these BAF becomes the superior place to get body jewlery
Posted on 8/31/2009
Great to wear to work; people can't even tell they're plugs. They are a little bit long, but you can't beat them for this price. Flares are pretty large, but my ears are stretchy so no problems... just helps them stay in better!
Posted on 6/12/2009
These were way too long. They almost doubled the thickness of my lobes. Go for Anatometal.

Gauge purchased: 2g
I'm actually surprised how much I like these plugs. They're well worth the small amount of cash. They have quite a large flare, though, which wasn't an issue for my stretchy lobes, but may cause a problem for some.
Posted on 4/23/2009
Gauge purchased: 4ga. They arrived quickly and are GORGEOUS! I am so happy with the purchase. Well worth the cost.

Gauge purchased: 4g
I really love these plugs, and are an amazing deal for the price. The gem in these are a lot bigger then the single CZ gem plugs, and look like normal earings from the front. the flare is a little big, but i managed to get it in. Only one of my tunnels make that "rattling" sound that the other reviewers spoke of, and its only if i purposely hit it to try to make that noise. Would definatly buy and reccommend these. I just wish that they came in different colours and in gold.
Posted on 4/14/2009
Gauge purchased: 6g These look great and everything, but since the gauge is so large(especially with smaller sizes) I got them stuck in my ears for a while. Because, when I first put them in, the flare gauged my ears up at little; but once they were in for a while my ears shrunk back down which made it really hard to get them back out. It was like gauging up a size again. =\
Posted on 3/26/2009
Gauge purchased: 8. Very light weight - great for smaller ears. Love the shine of the gem. The flair is a bit larger and I did have to work up to wearing even tho I have worn 8 ga for months. Highly recommend but order 1 ga up to wear right away. Great every day earring.
Posted on 3/6/2009
Gauge purchased: 6
These are beautiful, which is sometimes hard to find with such a small guage. I get many compliments, and they look great with everything. They are a little snug going in, but then very comfortable. Worth every penny :)
Posted on 3/4/2009
Gauge purchased: 2G
These plugs are beautiful, but the only downside is that I haven't been able to wear these yet because the flare is rather big and hard to get through (but I am new to the 2G size for about two months). The jewel is pretty (very shiny, no scratches and clear), but I didn't notice any "rattle" like the other reviews mentioned. It seems the the edges are long and secure enough around the gem that it won't fall out any time soon.
Posted on 2/12/2009
I bought the 4g. Yes the flares are a bit big but it wasnt a big deal at all getting them in. They dont really look like gauges which is a great thing for work and all. They do rattle but you have to shake your head pretty hard. I love these and I'm wearing them at this exact moment.
Posted on 1/23/2009
Gauge purchased: 2g These plugs are beautiful. But the flares are extreemly large, almost a 0g. I had to strech my ears to get them in and its going to be even harder to get them back out. The cz gems are very sparkly but they are loose and rattle. I would not reccomend buying these.
Posted on 1/5/2009
Gauge purchased: 6
I purchased these back in 07 and still have not worn them. I can't get them in because the flares are so large. I have tried several times after a hot shower with oil and still cant get past the large flares. Even have tried using a 6 gauge taper. They are very pretty though I should have bought them a size smaller.
Posted on 12/30/2008
Gauge purchased: 8g
These are absolutely gorgeous but as it's been said before, the flare is quite large, I'll have to stretch again before I can wear them.
Posted on 11/26/2008
Gauge purchased: 6 I bought these to wear when I wanted to go out and have my ears look normal. My ears are at a 4g and the earrings go in fine. I absolutely love these plugs.

Gauge purchased: 6
I like these they are just like the picture, I guess I should've realized how long they are. that would be my only complaint.
Posted on 10/22/2008
Gauge purchased: 4g
I got these plugs for job interveiws, weddings, funerals and other functions where I might not want my lobes to be obvious. Previous reveiwers have mentioned that the flares are very large and, unfortunately, they are. On my 4g plugs, the flares are slightly larger than 2g, though only by .5mm or so. If your lobes aren't very stretchy, I would recommend buying these a size smaller because the flares are pretty huge.
The gems are very sparkly though and these plugs look good worn with the gems facing out or with the plain side facing out. The steel is nice and smooth and the gems are set in very securely. These do look like regular CZ stud earrings from the front, so if you're looking for plugs that will hide your stretched lobes in plain sight, try these.
Posted on 8/28/2008
Gauge purchased: 0. It took me a while to get these in because the flare was a little bigger than i anticipated, but once i got them in they were stunning. They are a little bit heavy, but they sparkle like crazy and they look very feminine compared to the other ones i own. I love these and even though it took me a little bit to get them in, i'm happy i didn't give up on them.
Posted on 8/26/2008
Gauge purchased: 4g I got a 4g for my cartilage. I had worn DF in it before, so I thought it would be no big deal, as everyone said the flare was normal sized. Unfortunately, the flare is massive, and there's no way I'll ever be able to get it in.
Posted on 8/24/2008
Gauge purchased: 8g
I bought these plugs in 8g for my well healed 6g ears. They are beautiful, but I measured the flares and they are over 4g. These plugs are also the longest plugs I have ever had- way too long for my skinny ears. So I can't wear them. It's a shame, they are really pretty and the price isn't bad.
Posted on 8/19/2008

Plugs are pretty, but very heavy and make my earlobes sag.
Posted on 7/30/2008
Gauge purchased: 8
I bought the 8 gauge plugs but I should have purchased the 6 gauge. I am a 6 normally, but all the other reviews said to go a size smaller because of the large flares. The flares are not that big!! Buy you correct size and you should be fine. Even tho mine are a bit big though, they still look nice for the price. Highly recommended.
Posted on 6/30/2008
Gauge purchased: 8
After reading the product reviews I decided to go with one size smaller than what I'm at. I needed to wear them for prom in a few days so I didn't have time to stretch up. They are simple , shiny, and very pretty. Just beware of the flare size and purchase accordingly.
Posted on 6/15/2008
Gauge purchased:6g. I agree with most of the other reviewers that the flares are huge; it's definitely more than a size bigger, because I'm at 4g and can't even fit the tip of the smooth end into my lobes. They are smooth and very pretty though, and I can't wait until I can finally wear them!
Posted on 5/22/2008
Gauge purchased: 2
So based on the reviews below, I purchased a smaller gauge than i actually wear, because of how dramatic everyone made the flare seem. I ended up returning them and getting my actual size like i should have done in the first place because they are JUST NORMAL DOUBLE FLARES. The flare is not unusually big at all. It is a completely normal sized double flare plug. I'm Very happy with the quality.

Gauge purchased: 2g!
I love these! I bought the older version, which has a more blunt edge. They're very long in my lobes, probably twice what I need, but they look fantastic.
Posted on 4/17/2008
Gauge purchased: 8
The flares on these plugs are ridiculously huge, if you keep them in your ears for extended periods of time you won't be able to get them out. I had to take my girlfriend to the emergency room to get them cut off with pliars.
Posted on 1/2/2008
Wow. These are cute but the flair was huge and I'm not joking a 2g flare on a 6g plug!! I had to get out my tools and file it down which I don't advise doing unless you know how because the metal could really irritate the crap out of your ear if you don't get it smooth enough. Anyway now they are in and they are super cute.
Posted on 12/9/2007
These earrings are beautiful and seem to be very high quality. The only problem I had with them was that they were very difficult to get in at 4g. The flares are very wide.
Posted on 11/21/2007
I was worried these plugs wouldn't look so great at 6g but even at such a small size they look lovely. The flare is fairly large, just over 4g, so I haven't been able to get them in yet. I can't wait 'til I can wear them though as they look really pretty.
Posted on 8/7/2007
I absolutely love these size 8-cute plugs! They are so feminine and they fit great! I am getting older and I wanted something to be cute and more conservative and I am sooo happy with the product and the quick delivery! This is my 1st pair, I just love them!!!!!!!!!!!
Posted on 6/18/2007
In 2g, it was tricky to get in the 0g flares. They're extremely roomy, but they're pretty.

I have these in 4G. I really like them. They look close to normal stud earrings and are perfect for everday as well as dress up. They look great paired with ball stud earrings!
