Segment Rings - A segment ring is a great alternative to a captive bead ring, if you want a more seamless look than a CBR provides. Instead of a standard ball filling the gap in these rings, each one has a movable segment. Some segment rings have segments that you can entirely remove to insert the jewelry, while others have hinged segments that unlock on one side. Once your jewelry's in place, simply snap the removable or hinged segment back into place for a continuous-ring look. Segment rings make great hoop nose rings, septum rings, lip rings, earrings, nipple rings, cartilage jewelry, and jewelry for other types of piercings.
