Captive bead rings (CBRs) are a popular style of body piercing jewelry. They consist of a small metal hoop with a removable bead or ball that “captive” between the two ends of the hoop. CBRs are versatile and can be used in a variety of piercings, including earlobes, cartilage, nostrils, eyebrows, lips, and nipples.
CBRs are especially appealing to those who like to switch up their jewelry frequently, as the beads can be easily removed and replaced with different colors, materials, or designs. They’re also a great choice for those who may have metal allergies or sensitivities, as many CBRs are made with hypoallergenic materials such as titanium or niobium.
Beyond their aesthetics, CBRs also serve a functional purpose in certain piercing placements. In cartilage piercings, for example, the hoop can be adjusted to allow for swelling or piercing migration during the healing process. In nipple piercings, CBRs can provide additional support and stability to the piercing, preventing the jewelry from getting caught or snagged on clothing.
