1. Longer description:
Single Captive Straight Barbell is a classy jewelry piece you can use in many different piercings. It consists of a straight barbell and a Captive Bead Ring, both made of high-quality 316LVM Surgical Steel. This material is durable, elegant and body-safe.
This piece is internally threaded for your comfort.
This barbell, sometimes called "slave barbell" or "doorknocker", is very popular for tongue, industrial and nipple piercings. The best thing about it is that the Captive Bead Ring is removable, so you essentially get two jewelry pieces for the price of one.
When ordering, keep in mind that the straight barbell portion is the main piece - this is the one that goes into your piercing. It means that sizing (gauge and length) you order are for the barbell. We will include an appropriately-sized ring depending on the gauge and length of the barbell you order.
You may also insert the Captive Bead Ring and let the barbell hang. In this case, however, the Captive Bead Ring becomes the main jewelry piece so you need to email us and we can set the correct gauge for you.
