The shell of the abalone is made of the well known "mother of pearl" and is one of the most iridescent naturally occurring materials. BellyBling now offers a line of abalone pearl ear gauges and abalone shell plugs, constructed from all natural abalone shell. An abalone is a creature who lives under the sea, also referred to as a sea snail or mollusk. The ever changing color makes these abalone shell gauges extremely eye catching, especially when worn outside in the sunshine. Our abalone plugs and abalone gauges are organic, comprised of other natural materials like horn and bone. Our customer favorite is the swirl abalone ear gauge. For a more classic look, try the black organic horn abalone ear gauges. Abalone saddle plugs and abalone gauges are a sophisticated staple in any ear plug collection.
