I really liked the design, but the metal is a little softer than I am used to in a Captive. While that makes it easy to get on and off, it also makes it easy to over-loosen it, and makes me fearful of it falling out. Hasn't fallen out yet, though.

i love these, although i think theyre a little pricy for how small they are, and im quite disappointed that within a couple days one of the almost microscopic gems had fallen out. guess i shouldve been a little more careful

These are very cool, and nice quality. A little weighty, they feel like a real substantial piece of jewelry. Note that the beads can only be swapped with other dimpled beads; I was hoping to be able to wear a variety of beads in them, but that doesn't work with these because the top "leg" is tapered and sinks into drilled bead holes. Another thing to mention is that the wearable is squared, so be sure to order your correct healed size as those square corners can feel like a bit of a stretch compared to round surfaces. These look especially awesome worn in multiples ascending up the ear side-by-side.

These captives are fantastic! A bit of a fiddle to get in as all captives are, but afterwards they are super comfortable and the balls are super fun to spin. They are a classy and elegant design that are great for formal occasions without having to wear 18g pairs in saggy holes for the night. I Love them.

These are really pretty and I love wearing them through eyelets. The balls are loose though so I am worried I might loose them.

An absolutely gorgeous piece of jewelry.

These are great pieces! I don't like dangle earrings or big hoops so these are perfect for me.

These are absolutely gorgeous. I bought two to put in my nipples and they're truly unique. The little gem is not flashy at all, (quite small, actually) adds a little shine if the light hits it just right. no problems as of yet - i absolutely love them.

The first pair of these that I bought were great and none of the gems fell out for a long time. Once one did though I had to buy new ones. The new ones the gems fell out quickly so am very upset about that and am going to move on to different earrings. I have to say though I really loved these earrings. I just didn't want to constantly buy new ones.

I can't wait to wear these! They're antique-y, but they're still shiny! And the little diamonds are perfect. I love these!

These just came in today and I have already tried them on - they are really smooth and beautiful, and the gem is very sparkly despite it's small size. They look great in my helix.

Gauge purchased: 14G. I bought this to wear in my helix, and while it a gorgeous piece of jewelery, I found it too uncomfortable to wear for long, especially while trying to sleep. I plan on getting another one to wear as a pair through some earskins, because they are just too pretty to let sit in a jewelery box!

I *love* these! They look nicer in person, and both sides are equally pretty.
I do have to say that they are really closer to 12g than 14 - and the wearable area is *square* so not only is it tight in 14, but it rubs. So after wearing these for a day or two in my 14g lobes, I wound up taking them out and put in 12g cbr's (because I *really* want to wear these!) for a couple of days. When I put them back in they feel fine.
I may have to buy another pair, just in case. ^^

I just bought two of these and they are a very pretty and original CBR design. I've gotten a lot of compliments on them! My only complaint is that the steel ball they come with is kind of loose, so I had to replace it with my own. Otherwise, great jewelry!

These are very unique and pretty. I like to wear them through 00 black earskins. That looks really cool.
