If you’re an anal beginner, read my introduction to butt plugs before getting anything. It will give you some tips and help you figure out what size to choose.
An important aspect of jewel butt plugs (a.k.a. gem plugs or princess plugs) it that nearly all of them have round bases. This makes them well-suited for wearing during PIV sex and masturbation, but it can also make them uncomfortable if you walk around while plugged. To learn more about this, read the base shape section in my article on butt plug design. If you would prefer a plug with a (less pretty) t-bar base, check out my general butt plug recommendations.
You can find lots of cheap jewel/gem/princess butt plugs on sites that don’t specialize in selling sex toys, like Amazon, Ebay, and AliExpress. But buying one of these plugs is a bad idea. The vetting process for sex toys on these sites is virtually non-existent, so they sell loads of toys made of unsafe materials—while labelling them as being made of safe materials. For the sake of your health, stick with reputable sex shops that know how to discern safe materials from unsafe materials and label their products correctly. I’ve only listed jewel/gem/princess plugs that I trust are safe.
With metal toys, you have to be more careful and make sure you’re getting pure stainless steel (or aluminum or titanium). Avoid cheap chrome-plated crap. If you think you’re getting a good deal on a cheap metal toy, chances are you’re about to stick an unsafe metal in your body.
With metal, you even have to read between the lines on spec sheets at shops that are otherwise trustworthy. For example, I’ve purposefully excluded LuxGem and Lovehoney’s house brand metal gem plugs from this list. Their spec sheets list the material simply as “metal,” rather than specifying what kind of metal they are. This tips us off that they’re made of a mystery alloy of dubious safety, and it explains why they cost so little. Contrast this with Njoy: The spec sheet says “stainless steel,” not “metal.”
I’ll try to keep this list updated. If I’m missing any safe butt plugs with jewels or gems, please comment on this post or message me at squirrelmunkwrites [at] gmail [dot] com so I can add them.
