Fake Plugs & Expanders, the new men’s earring!
For a long time the men’s jewellery market has been dominated by stud and hoop earrings, with the black stud in particular making real waves in the men’s earring department. Recently, however, as men become more open to experimenting with new styles, our Fake Plugs and Expanders have shone through as a style to watch!
The beauty of a fake plug or expander is how they provide the wearer with a stretched ear effect, without the actual pain and commitment of going through the stretching process legitimately. Stretching your ear isn’t a decision that should be taken lightly and for some it is completely unrealistic, which is what makes these plugs and expanders so perfect. Simply put them in and take them out as you please with nothing but a normal ear piercing necessary. What’s more, if you’re genuinely considering properly stretching your ear, then these will give you a good idea of how you’ll look, before diving head first in.
Comfortably the most popular colour for men’s jewellery, our range of black stretchers and plugs offer you something a little alternative to the usual plain black stud.
If you’re going to give any of these fake expanders or plugs a go, then you should really consider these. They look incredibly realistic and come in a fantastic array of colours. From solid reds to wonderful marbled tones, they’re a great casual earring to freshen up your style. Each fake plug is made from high quality stainless steel with a 12mm diameter, which once screwed through the ear, fits snugly against the lobe to give the stretched effect.
Available in similar colours to their plug counterparts, these fake spike expanders offer a completely different shape, feel and style. Gone are the days when a behind the ear butterfly back was your only option. These earrings utilise a screw fixing which allows the earring to look fantastic from both the front and back.
These fake expanders give the realistic stretched ear appearance, whilst also providing a CZ front. They’re a great piece of jewellery, which include a lot of aspects we look for when stocking new earrings for men. These particular fake expanders come with their very own o-rings to help give an even more authentic stretched ear look.
We’re really excited about these this year and we think you should be too, so make sure you keep an eye on this range because we’ll definitely be expanding it in 2014.
