Browse our range of captive bead belly rings. Captive bead belly rings are amongst one of the more popular styles of body jewellery and at bellylicious we have several different styles for you to choose from. Captive bead navel rings are so popular because of their closed rounded shape meaning that they won't snag on your clothes and they are great for everyday wear.
OPENING A CAPTIVE BEAD RING.
The reason they are called Captive Bead Belly Rings is because of the tension of the ring that holds the bead in place. The bead or ball is not attracted to the ring physically or threaded on to the ring, instead the edges of the ring sit inside the dimples or hole in the bead or ball. Once the rings tension or hold on the bead or ball is broken, the bead or ball will separate from the ring and allow you to remove the jewellery.
Smaller gauge jewellery can usually be removed easily by following a few steps:
- Grab the jewellery by the ring with the index and thumb of one hand
- Grab the bead or ball with the index and thumb of the other hand
- Pull and apply force in opposite directions causing the tension that the ring has on the ball or bead to break.
- Once the ball or bead is free, rotate the jewelry out. With smaller rings there maybe a clearance issue and the ring may need to be bent to allow it to be removed. We suggest that you twist the ring opposed to pulling it apart, in a cork screw action. This will make it much easier to keep the trueness of the ring.
