Captive Bead Jewelry Operation

For more information review my blog entry on CBRs here:


The center ball has slight dimples on both sides onto which the open ends of the ring abut without passing through. The ball 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 dimples on either side of the ball 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.
