Circular Barbells are common body jewelry types you can use in many different ways and in many different piercing types. While they are not as popular nor widespread as some other jewelry types, such as Captive Bead Rings or curved barbells, circular barbells can be used for many different piercing so they are definitely jewelry pieces you want to consider.

The Design

The basic design of a circular barbell is a U-shape (or a horseshoe shape). This is how you’ll recognize them. Most of the circular barbells are not round nor do they make a full circle, so don’t be confused by their name.

Circular barbells have a nice round shaft and two open ends with balls or other ornaments attached to them. The ends (and the balls) are usually parallel to each other.

This type of jewelry tends to be simple yet elegant, discreet yet attractive, so it’s suitable for many different piercing types.

Circular barbells can be made of many different materials, such as surgical steel or titanium, though there are also soft, acrylic circular barbells and circular barbells made of other materials. Most of the time, the choice is yours, just make sure to pick a circular barbell made of a body safe material.

When to Use Circular Barbells?

Circular barbells can be used for many piercing types. As a general rule, you may use them in all the piercings where Captive Bead Rings can be used. Unlike Captive Bead Rings, however, circular barbells offer certain advantages.

First of all, the beads of a circular barbell are attached to the barbell so there is no fear you may lose them. With Captive Bead Rings, losing a bead is always a risk. You simply don’t have to worry about it for circular barbells.

Another advantage to circular barbells is that they are much easier to put on and take off. Since they don’t make a full circle, it’s much easier to open them and to take them out. It makes the whole process of changing the jewelry much easier. Not to mention that circular barbells provide some unique visual styles not available with rings.
