*Titanium jewelry is lightweight (around 60% the weight of stainless steel given the same volume), it is highly corrosion resistant and less likely to react with body fluids, is not magnetic, it can be anodized to create a layer of colored oxide on the surface.


Center Bead
One soft white swarovski crystallized pearl (4mm)


*316LVM processed surgical steel

316 refers to the combination of metal alloys use in a high grade of steel.
The L refers to low carbon which means there is low nickel content in this jewelry.
VM indicates that 316L metal grade stainless steel was alloyed in "vacuum melting" process. The vacuum melting process removes tiny imperfections in the continuity of steel.Vacuum processing of 316L steel also removes sulfur, phosphorous, and other unwanted gases.


Dangle:
Sterling Silver heart charm measures approximately 1/4" x 5/8".



NOTE: photos of silver colored ring and pliers shown in ring opening and closing photos are NOT included in this purchase. These two photos are to illustrate how the pliers operate the captive bead ring style navel ring. The ring sold in this listing is ELECTRIC BLUE colored TITANIUM .


For assistance, I have provided a tutorial entry on Captive Bead Jewelry Operation on my blog here:

http://beltanemoon.blogspot.com/2012/01/body-jewelry-captive-bead-ring-how-to.html


The center bead closure has a dimple on either side onto which the open ends of the ring abut without passing through. The bead is held in place by pressure and tension.

Tension of the ring on the center ball is released through the use of ring opening pliers. This tool releases the center bead by increasing the diameter of the ring from the inside.

Ring tension should be increased (thus DECREASING ring diameter) prior to jewelry assembly before inserted into piercing.

Once the ring is inserted into the navel, the ring openers are then gently inserted into the ring and the ring diameter is slightly increased while the dimples on either side of the bead are aligned against the each ring end. The ring should then hold the bead captive and in place. Takes some practice!

I recommend having a professional piercer demonstrate how to install and remove this captive ring jewelry and the buyer should consider purchasing a set of ring closers and ring openers for future use.
