Surgical Steel Segment Ring


Quick Overview

A solid looking ring, that looks classy rather than the regular Captive Bead Ring that everyone else uses. This ring has a matching segment instead of a ball that usually either pinches or falls out.
The segment fits perfectly in the ring giving it a seamless look.

The Surgical Steel Segment Ring is a fantastic alternative to the standard Captive Bead Rings, that you can wear in many different piercings.

This ring has an ingenious design made for comfort. Instead of the usual bead that you lose or pinches, these rings have a removable curved segment that fits perfectly..

Each segment is hand-crafted to fit a particular ring. The segments have rounded edges made to ensure comfort.

Made of high-quality 316L Surgical Steel so you can weare them in any piercing.

No pliers needed for smaller gauges but we do recommend getting the Ring Opening Pliers for larger gauges (such as 8 gauge and larger), it really just depends on your hand strength but it will make your life so much easier with all of your captive rings.

Please note: All pieces are priced individually. For a pair order 2.

Product Questions

Sort by ASC
Do you have these in 5/8"??
The photos her seem to show two slightly different designs, at least as far as the insertable pieces go.
The top ring (complete) shows cuts that are perpendicular to each other while the second, with the pice out, shows the angles as emanating from the center of the circle, sort of pie-shaped cuts.

Which one is correct?
What's the inside diameter dimension?

Excellent Review by Talloerson

I ordered 4 ga segment rings to upsize My nipple piercings. Though I have not put them in yet, I am looking forward to doing so. They look excellent and very well polished with a proper fit to the removable sections.. as always a great product.

Fine quality Review by Steve/Mike

Order arrived fast and couldn’t be happier. Fit and finish is high quality and gauge is true to size.Originally ordered the titanium version but gauging was way off. I have already ordered another set in the smaller size to have on hand. Inserting these is easy and with the correct pliers they close tight. Excellent!

Awesome Review by Tim

I love this ring in my PA. No longer have to worry about the bead in the captive bead ring slipping back and forth through the piercing hole. I should have purchased this from the beginning. The shine is really nice, too.

Great product/price Review by Éatban

Had my PA since 1998. Lost/misplaced lots of jewelry and parts therof over the years. This design can stay in and hopefully I won’t lose either part! Love the look and the quality is great.

5 stars Review by John

This is the best piece of jewelry I have for my PA.
I have tried curved barbells (which I like the way they look), but the balls would always slide into my urethra.
I have tried circular barbells, love the look and feel, but depending on the type of underwear---it would pinch.

This solid ring has been the best! The weight is nice (I have a 2 gauge), there's no pinching and it looks great. It also attaches very nicely to my chastity device! The quality is 5 stars to me!

Segment ring Review by Kevin

Nice piece Review by Gunz

I recieved the segment ring in a matter of days. The quality is as advertised. The weight is nice. I am wearing a 4 gauge, 3/4 inch ring as a PA. The wife enthusiastically approves of the new jewelry. I am trying different styles as I continue to streatch from 8 to 0. The segment matches fairly seamlessly, but there is a slight gap on each end. I will feel it snag from time-to-time, but not enough to really bother me. If I could get that to close perfectly, I'd give it five stars.

Best segment rings on the market Review by Barry

The segment fits perfectly, quality workmanship, great price. Right now I have one 8 gauge ring in each nipple. I have purchased two 6 gauge rings for when the time comes.

Great PA!! Review by jockstrapbud

LOVE the way this looks and feels! takes a little work in getting it open but once i did and put it in my cock it's been great! Several guys at the gym in the locker room have wanted to take a closer look and me being the exhibitionist that I am, I'm always happy to show it off to them and tell them to check out The Chain Gang! Very comfortable to wear and is made of high quality! Fast delivery time as always! Thank you!

Good quality Review by Craig

Ordered 8 g's for my ears. Much prefer these over barbells, no ball to worry about. Very pleased. Also have 2 ga PA which is great. Much more comfortable, no pinching.

super comfortable and great quality Review by aldo

i ordered a 10g 3/4' for my p.a. super comfortable! my girlfriend prefers it when I wear curved barbells but for everyday use it is awesome. it is really easy to change out as long as you have pliers. I will definitely be ordering one of these in a bigger size when I start stretching.

Exactly what I was expecting. Review by Customer

The quality of your products are very high quality and I am very satisfied with this one as it is easy to put into place and feels very comfortable. The only comment is that the delivery time seems a bit long.

Excellent product Review by Bucky

Excellent product. They arrived with the segment a little loose, I imagine intentionally, so that they can be tightened up just once after the segment is removed for the first time. That would prevent excess bending of the ring. Anyway, after I removed the segment and snugged the ring a little, the segment went back in perfectly.

The finish on the ring is excellent, Fit of the segment is excellent as well. I'm very pleased.

Excellent Review by jim

I have the 8 gauge. I like the segment rings much better than the others, which were always losing the bead and coming out when I didn't want them to. Really must have the opening pliers for heavy gauge rings.

Just right , as always Review by Tallperson

ordered a segment ring for My Ear . Thought it would be a better fit than My circular barbell for work. It was just as advertised . The segment joints are very smooth and can hardly be felt , allowing the ring to turn in My lobe without any irritation.. excellent product as always..

Perfect for a Prince Albert Review by ChuckTaylorDude

I got tired of losing the balls to my PA, and this ring is perfect! Not only is it comfortable, but it is easy to snap off with the correct players, it doesn't pinch, and looks great. Definitely a good buy.

Great quality ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Review by Me

Ordered the 2g, 3/4 ring, beautiful ring. after installing it the seams never quite met, but that happened because my inexperience and bad techniques. Not a one person installation, you will need help. Great company service too.

And thanks again for following up, you have a happy custumer here.

love it Review by Chris

I got the 4-gauge 5/8" segment ring for my PA, and the g/friend loves and so do I. I had the same size in captive bead and in curved barbell, but I had a 6-guage before this and always preferred the segment, it's just so cool to be able to turn it. You do need the reverse pliers, but that's OK, easy to use once you get the hang of it.

Great product Review by Xnipec

I ordered this product In a 4 gauge 5/8" diameter for my PA. It really does require a tool to open, but that also ensures you aren't going to lose the segment. The seam is so smooth it is unnoticeable, and was an instant favourite for me and my partner. I highly recommend this product.

Some adjustments on manufacturing needed Review by Piercedmetal

Ordered 2ga 7/8 segment nipple rings. The attached balls for closure could be shorter/flatter. I had to adjust them with a drill in my lab to get them in the ring. I have used wire cutters to remove the segments, it is easy and placed at the joint, squeeze gently, and out it pops. Good products. Have the same style, 00 ga PA.

Beautiful piece of jewelry, but... Review by Dellbert

I bought this piece because I have always wanted one. But alas, I have won the "stupid a$$ customer" award for not reading or thoroughly comprehending what is written about the ring before you buy it, e.g., buying the pliers. I haven't been able to wear the piece because I don't have the confidence to use pliers close to my penis,...I'm just not that ballsy, especially with a 1 gauge 3/4". So as for now, it will just be a paper weight. LOL!!!

Good Quality Review by Jim

Depending on the gauge Putting this earring on or off may require the Ring Opening Pliers.

Have bought other stuff - good quality.

Would probably do business with them again now that I have the hang of it.

Recommended Review by Bill

Ordered 3/4" 8g for my PA, fits good and has been very comfortable so far. I like the segmented ring better than the captive bead ring I had in before. The worst part was getting the segment out, inserting the ring and getting the segment back in, but I'm sure w/some practice that will get better. I will most probably be buying another when I'm ready for a size increase.

2 Gauge Requires Pliers Review by Mark

Attention: Neophytes, Beginners, Newbies and Such:
Read everything at the bottom of the page from which you order, so you don’t get the Chain Gang Stupid Customer of the Month Award.
I have the dubious distinction of being a recipient of said award because I didn’t see, or didn’t remember reading, that you need a special pair pair of pliers when ordering Captive Bead Rings.
I drove Sara and Russ crazy with my emails questioning why, all of a sudden, after I received my order, I had to send more money to wear my jewelry.
So, here’s the deal...If you don’t wish to receive that award...Read, comprehend, and remember what you read. Either that, or don’t drink when you order.
Sara and Russ...My humble apologies...Mark; From some place in Southern California...

Untitled Review by McG

I ordered the 2 gauge 5/8 captive segment ring when I was ready to stretch out my pa. The ring came quickly and looks great! Also look great in my piercing. I love the look and the weight of it hanging there. As an added plus, no captive ball to go places it shouldn't.
