Clit Jewelry

Clit jewelry is body jewelry made for clitoral piercing and other female genital piercings. Keep in mind that clit piercing is very rare so most female genital piercings will not be clitoral. Many of the popular piercings are actually done on the area around the clitoris, on the clitoral hood and the surrounding tissue. The most popular female genital piercings done in this area are Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH), Horizontal Clitoral Hood (HCH) and Triangle piercing. For this reason, “clit jewelry” can refer to jewelry that is actually made for clitoral piercing or for piercings done on the clitoral hood. The exact jewelry type will depend on the type of the piercing. However, keep in mind that there is no special body jewelry made for female genital piercings alone. Instead, clit jewelry styles are the same jewelry styles used for other piercing types. What is important is that they are smooth and made of safe body materials so they don’t hurt the sensitive tissue around the clitoris.

There are many different clit jewelry styles and they depend on the piercing type. Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) piercing typically uses curved barbells but some other types of barbells are sometimes used. Horizontal Clitoral Hood (HCH) generally uses Captive Bead Rings and curved barbells, though some people choose to wear other types of body jewelry rings. Triangle piercing typically uses Captive Bead Rings and circular barbells or, rarer, other types of body piercing rings. Finally, the true clitoral piercing uses Captive Bead Rings or circular barbells.
