This item is hand carved from organic material and the gauge will vary +/- up to 0.5mm.
These are made with real sea shells, so shells will vary slightly with each pair.

Tons of variation on the horn itself from white to brown to red streaking and pocks (which can be expected with such a material, but make note of this if you are unfamiliar), small chips on the shells themselves (also to be partially expected seeing as shell tips are delicate) but overall I'm very happy with these plugs. Great flares and size; very beautiful design! At 16mm the shell itself is in a stage in between rounded, smooth edges and the lasagna-pasta like ribbon edges that are seen in the larger.
