Unlocking the Beauty of Internally Threaded Jewellery: A Guide to Style and Safety

A Guide to Internally Threaded Jewellery

When it comes to adorning our bodies with jewellery, we often focus on aesthetics and design. However, the construction and design of the jewellery itself can be just as important, especially when it comes to body piercings. One style that's gaining popularity in the world of body jewellery is internally threaded jewellery. In this blog, we'll explore the fascinating world of internally threaded jewellery, discussing its construction, benefits, and why it's a top choice for body piercing enthusiasts.

Internally threaded piercings should always be done by a professional who uses hygienic instruments.

What Is Internally Threaded Jewellery?

Internally threaded jewellery is a type of body jewellery where the threads (the grooves that screw the pieces together) are located on the post (the part that goes through the piercing) rather than the ball or attachment. This design has several advantages:

Smooth and Safe: Since the threads are on the inside, there are no exposed ridges or edges that could irritate the piercing or surrounding tissue. This makes for a smoother and safer wearing experience, particularly during the healing process.

Reduced Risk of Damage: With externally threaded jewellery, the threads can scratch or irritate the piercing channel during insertion or removal. Internally threaded pieces are gentler on the piercing, reducing the risk of damage.

Higher Quality: Internally threaded jewellery is often associated with higher quality materials like implant-grade titanium, surgical steel, or solid gold. These materials are less likely to cause allergic reactions or irritations.

Secure Fit: Internally threaded jewellery tends to have a more secure fit because the threading is less likely to loosen over time. This minimizes the risk of losing jewellery pieces.

Types of Internally Threaded Jewellery

Internally threaded jewellery comes in various styles to suit different piercings and personal preferences:

Barbells: Used for tongue, nipple, and industrial piercings, internally threaded barbells offer a sleek and streamlined appearance.

Labrets: Ideal for lip and ear piercings, labrets consist of a flat disc or gemstone on one end and a removable threaded ball on the other.

Circular Barbells: Circular barbells are versatile and can be used in various piercings, such as septum, eyebrow, and cartilage piercings.

Captives Bead Rings (CBRs): CBRs are circular hoops with a removable ball or bead that can be customised with different designs or gemstones.

Internally threaded barbells like these are great for tongue, nipple and industrial piercings.

Choosing the Right Jewellery

When selecting internally threaded jewellery, consider the following factors:

Material: Opt for high-quality, hypoallergenic materials like implant-grade titanium, surgical steel, niobium, or solid gold.

Size and Gauge: Ensure the jewellery is an appropriate size and gauge for your specific piercing. Consult with a professional piercer if you're unsure.

Style: Choose a style that suits your piercing type and personal taste.

Maintenance: Follow proper aftercare and cleaning guidelines to keep your jewellery and piercings healthy.
