This came to me and it was a seriously beautiful captive but I am completely incapable of fitting this to my nostril piercing so for now I just state at it longingly in its cool BAF plastic bag. It's not a flaw of the product, its just my shaky hands!

Ordered 8g CBRs, 3/4" diameter, light blue. What an expensive gamble. Twice I've ordered Industrial Strength titanium and twice I've been disappointed by the colours. The first time I ordered teal plugs and received a colour distinctly blurple. This time, I ordered light blue CBR's and received pieces closer to dark blue (for comparison, it is like what Anatometal calls "dark blue"). Besides plain stainless or polish titanium, the colour does not match a single other piece of jewelry I own nor does it seem to lend itself to anything I could order. In their favour, they are a nice size/weight. I used a ring opener just barely enough to slip the bead out, and was able to nicely pop the bead back in by hand without needing to use a closer. If you would like the darker blue colour, it does look nice with the polish bead. I guess I will switch to Anatometal and try again to get light blue... *frown*

I got this in 16g and 14g. My 16g has a 7/16" diameter and i can remove and replace the ball by hand, but the 14g 5/16" diameter I cant. I ordered light blue and blurple and they are both equally beatiful and shiney. I decided to stretch the piercing i was going to wear it in larger than 14g, so I'm actually going to get the ear pierced again just so I can wear it. That's how much I like these.

i have the 6g plain polish ones, in the largest diameter. while the piercer who put them in had to scrounge for a broken pair of pliers to do the job (the diameter is too wide for standard hardware to open the jewellery easily), these earrings are great.
the captive beads are still tight and i've had these in for months. despite the larger gauge and diameter, the titanium keeps them nice and light, too. and my notoriously cranky ears have had no infections with these rings. definitely worth the money.

Amazing quality on these rings! They are, hands down, the best captives I've ever seen. Gorgeous scratch free polish and the bead is a perfect fit. I am *so* pleased!
