Olivewood + Turquoise Inlay Plugs - 13mm (1/2"), 26mm (1")

Size Guide

Olivewood plugs with stabilized 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.

13mm (1/2") plugs have 6mm inlays, and 26mm (1") plugs have 10mm inlays. 

Important notes about turquoise: Turquoise is a stone that we are fortunate to be able to work. This particular variety has been stabilized, which means the turquoise is soft, so it is infused with a clear epoxy resin to retain color and maintain workability. The majority of ALL rough turquoise is stabilized before sale. This does not, however, mean the stone has been dyed - we do not use dyed stones. A common and cheap substitute for turquoise that has flooded the market in recent years is Howlite, a white stone that has been dyed blue to look like veined turquoise.
