What is Prong vs Bezel Setting?

Many gold curved barbells include gems in various settings. The most popular settings are prong and bezel. Bezel setting surrounds the gem to keep it in place. Prong setting contains three or more tines (small pieces of metal raised above the base) that keep the gem in place.

What are Side Gems on Traditional Barbells?

Traditional gold curved barbells include a curved body and two beads, one on the each side. These beads can be smooth and plain or they can include gems. If a curved barbell is positioned horizontally rather than vertically, these gems come on the right and left side of the barbell. This is why they are known as side gems. There are many different colors you can use for these gems when ordering your barbell.
