Choosing the Best Nose Jewelry Piece for Yourself

Nose Jewelry PieceNose piercings, particularly nostril piercings (and, to a lesser extent, septum piercing) are very common piercing types. It means there are many people who choose this type of piercing for themselves. It can be as simple as a fashion statement and wanting to make yourself more stylish. Or it can be more extreme, especially in cases of stretched piercings.

Whatever your reasons may be, it’s important to keep in mind that jewelry is one of the most important things about your piercing. While it’s vital to keep your piercing clean and problem-free, the crucial thing about any piercing is jewelry.

In order to attract the most attention and use your nose piercing to the fullest, you need to know how to choose the right jewelry and how to take care of your nose jewelry pieces.

Nose Jewelry

There are many different nose jewelry pieces you can use. In part, this will depend on the type of nose piercing you have. Some jewelry types are specially made for certain piercings. For example, nostril piercing has special styles to go with them, such as NoseBones, nostril screws, fishtails or L-bars.

However, nose piercings can also use many generalized jewelry styles. Captive Bead Rings, circular barbells or even curved barbells and straight barbells can be worn in certain piercings. It all depends on your style and what you want to achieve. When it comes to septum piercing, it can use tusks and other similar jewelry types.

As you can see, nose jewelry is very varied and you don’t have to limit yourself to specialized pieces made for nose piercings only.

How to Choose the Best Jewelry

Once you get your nose piercing and once it’s healed, you can start thinking about many different jewelry styles to go with it. Some people don’t like to change jewelry often and prefer to find that one perfect jewelry piece and wear it all the time. This is a good way to go if you don’t like to change your jewelry, but you don’t have to limit yourself to one jewelry piece or one style.

Your chosen jewelry should be something comfortable, beautiful and something you like to wear. It’s important that your jewelry doesn’t hurt you or harm you in any way. This is why it’s important to find a perfect fit. Never insert any jewelry that is larger or smaller in gauge than the gauge you are pierced with. This is a recipe for a disaster.

Other than that, it’s important to choose jewelry that will suit your style. Think about your outfits and general fashion sense. What kind of nose jewelry would go with it? You may prefer elegant and discreet jewelry pieces. Or you might opt for something large and bold. Whatever you choose, it’s important to be comfortable with it and to like to wear it.

Remember, you are not limited to only one jewelry piece or just one style. It’s best to have several jewelry pieces you can wear in many different situations. You can have an “everyday” jewelry piece you can wear over and over again, and then some more decorative and more stylish jewelry pieces ideal for special occasions.

The choice is yours. It’s important to choose something that truly expresses who you are. Your nose jewelry should be comfortable and to suit your style, whatever it may be.

Nostril jewelry comes in many different styles, sizes and designs, so it’s possible to choose exactly what you want and like. One might think nose piercing doesn’t allow many different designs or complex jewelry pieces, but despite certain limitations there are numerous styles to choose from. You are sure not limited to one or two plain designs – there are many different styles to choose from.

As usual, it’s important to know your gauge. Since 20g and 18g are the most common gauges for nostril piercings, these are also the most common jewelry sizes. However, it’s possible to find jewelry in other sizes. While stretching is not so popular for nostril piercing (septum stretching is more common), there are people who have nostril piercings of other sizes.

What is important to remember is that you can always find suitable nostril jewelry for yourself. Your chosen jewelry pieces will largely depend on your personal styles and preferences. Other factors you should keep in mind are comfort and easiness of putting jewelry in and taking it off.

Generally speaking, nostril jewelry comes in several common styles:

Nose Bones

Nose bones are among the most common nostril jewelry styles. They are made of a straight bar with a ball on one end and a decoration on the other. The decoration is most commonly a gem (available in many different colors and gem types), but it can be a different kind of a decoration. Other common choices include: charms and simple balls or discs. The ball on the other end of the bar keeps the jewelry from falling out. Nose bones are a great and lightweight jewelry pieces, but it might be uncomfortable for piercings in healing.

Nose Screws

This is another popular nose jewelry choice. Nose screws have a curved body and often come in left and right varieties. The curve is there to keep the jewelry in place but it requires some practice to insert. It’s also not a great choice for piercings in healing. Other than that, however, nose screws are very beautiful and popular among people. Nose screws have different decorations on the end: gems, charms, ball and others. They are gorgeous and come in many different designs.

Other Jewelry Choices

Other types of nostril jewelry are a bit less common, but it’s possible to find many different designs made in these jewelry types:

  • L-Shapes. These jewelry pieces have an L-shaped bend that keeps the jewelry in place. They resemble Nose Screws but at easier to insert and take out. They give you a security without being too complicated to use.
  • Nose Studs. They resemble nose bones, but they don’t have the ball on the other end to keep the jewelry in place. It makes them more prone to falling out, so they are recommended for short-term wear. On the other hand, they are the easiest jewelry pieces to insert.
  • Fishtails. These jewelry pieces are specially designed for customization. They have a decoration (gem, charm, etc.) at one end and a very long bar. They are made so you can personally bend the bar in any way you want. This will ensure a perfect fit. Once they are fitted and bent, you should clip off the remaining length of the bar. It’s possible to bend a fishtail in many different ways: like an L-shape, C-shape, nose screw shape, etc. This is a great way to have a very comfortable jewelry piece because it’s made for your nose and perfectly customized for you. These are good jewelry pieces for healing piercings because you can make them longer at first (for swelling), and when the piercing is healed you can make them shorter by clipping the unwanted part of the jewelry.

Also, don’t forget that you can use other jewelry types for your nostril piercing even if they are not specially made for this type of piercing. For example, small gauge captive bead rings, segment rings and other types of body jewelry rings look very effective when used in nostril piercings.
