The appropriate jewelry for all genital piercings is essential if you truly want to experience the pleasure that is associated with the various piercings. Before going forward with the appropriate jewelry, it is imperative that you visit with a professional piercer to ensure your clitoral piercings are done correctly for your specific size and shape as every woman is different. Do not use a piercer that is not experienced or you may end up with a decorative piercing that does nothing for your sex life, or even worse.
