This item is hand carved from organic material and the gauge will vary +/- up to 0.5mm.
Approximately 5/16" wearable area.
The manufacturer says these are bloodwood, but to be honest they look more like chechen or granadillo.

The picture of the gauges don't do any justice for the product.
when you wear them, you can see the heart at all.
but yeah they don't stink

Gauge purchased: 5/8 , I got these, and when I put them in, I realized that you can't see the heart really at all. But they are very weightless and they do not stink.
Overall, a good purchase.

Gauge purchased: 9/16". The heart does not stand out as much as it does in this pictures, but it is there, subtle and cute. The only issue Ive had with these plugs is the amount of oil I need to use to keep them, and my lobes happy. Over time it has gotten better and I dont need to keep adding oil to my lobes during the day.

Don't buy these if you want them to look the way they do in the picture. It's obvious why the 6g ones are lying on their side in the pic, not showing the heart. For one, the flare was monster and second, the heart is like a black blob on one side. It's not even a heart. What a disappointment.
