Ear gauge plugs are one of the most popular types of jewellery for stretched ears, otherwise known as ‘ear gauges’. The other types of jewellery that you can wear in ear gauges are flesh tunnels, claws and stretching tapers.
There is a huge choice of ear gauge plugs available online, from basic acrylic plugs to elaborate designs and expensive plugs set with precious stones. Here at BJS we have hundreds of different ear gauge plugs, some of which you can see below. Ear gauge plugs come in different sizes, which are called ‘gauges’. It is important to know which gauge you need in order to get the right size. If you have ear gauge plugs but you are not sure what size they are, I recommend using our Jewellery Gauge Sizer page to measure them.
Cheap Ear Gauge Plugs
As I mentioned above, there is a great choice of ear gauge plugs available, including with regard to price.

Here at BJS we have ear gauge plugs starting at Â£1.95 and we work hard to ensure that even our cheapest plugs are still great quality. Below are some of our most popular cheap ear gauge plugs. The Darkside Ear Gauge Plugs are a real must-have but the other two are ideal if you want to make more of a style statement.
Natural Ear Gauge Plugs
Ear gauge plugs can be made from many different materials including natural materials like wood, buffalo horn, coral and stone. Many people find that natural materials are kinder to their skin and I personally prefer them. These natural ear gauge plugs are less likely to cause irritation or make your ears sore. Everyone is different but if your ears are sore after wearing metal or acrylic plugs I recommend trying a pair of wooden or buffalo horn ear gauge plugs. Both materials are very lightweight, cheap and durable.
Wooden plugs are not suitable for fresh stretchings so if you want to wear them I recommend stretching with buffalo horn and then switching to wood when your ears are completely healed.
