16g Blackline Captive Bead Ring
Exactly what I was looking for - great earring. Thanks!
Be prepared to use brute strength here, maybe even pluers—these are very sturdy! I had to use a LOT of force to open to put in my conch piercing & then close it enough to hold the bead securely. (16g 1/2inch btw.)
But once it’s in it won’t budge! I sleep on it every night & the ball hasn’t popped out once, which was a big problem with my old rings.
And it looks great, of course! I’m very pleased!
Way too small if you get the 20gauge. I tried for a good 45 minutes but the ball and divots are so small it’s impossible. I gave up and just put back in my old nose ring
Smaller gauge captives are tricky. If you like the look of the ring with a bead, I'd recommend the fixed bead rings. They open and close with a simple twist and no worries about losing the bead.
Good quality but under so much tension I had to spread the loop out a bit with pliers to be able to get the ball in once the loops were in my ears and not very fast shipping
So when I ordered this ring I didn't realize the bead came off so I lost it within seconds and had to use the gold bead from the other ring I ordered and it was almost impossible to put on I eventually gave up and probably will never use the two I ordered pretty sad about it considering I spent about $15 here and none of the piercing I ordered worked out for me
Sorry for your troubles, but that's the difference between a 'captive' vs. 'fixed' bead ring. Captive means the bead is held in place by the tension of the ring and they're tricky if you haven't used them before.
