Spice up your captive jewelry with these bright and colorful synthetic opal captive beads!

These synthetic opal captive beads are dimpled on both sides for secure placing in captive bead.

These ends are NOT threaded and will not work on any threaded jewelry.

In our drop-down menus for adding to cart, we show the gauge of the item you are ordering, then the length/diameter, then the ball size if it has any:

Jewelry is measured through a gauge system (conversion chart below). The higher the gauge number the smaller the wire is. For reference, a standard "earring" is usually 20 gauge. Jewelry gauges can vary between manufacturers. There is no universal regulation on companies to make a standard size in body jewelry. This is because some jewelry is made outside of the USA and measured in millimeters. And in the USA jewelry is measured in inches.

Rings are an essential item that can be worn in many piercings. They come in various styles:
  • Captive bead rings - These use tension to hold a bead in place.
  • Clickers - These use a hinge to open and close the ring.
  • Segment rings - These have a "segment" that comes completely out of the jewelry similar to removing a bead. But it looks like a completely seamless piece of jewelry.
  • Seamless rings - These rings require bending to open & close.
How to measure rings

Great quality bead and wonderful customer service. Highly recommend, however, the color isn't 'black', its more of a very dark turquoise. Nonetheless, its absolutely gorgeous!

I chipped my light green one of these (still very beautiful and I would recommend) so I bought light blue for a replacement and it is SO flashy.

Love the color and flash, but be warned they are a bit delicate! I accidentally crushed the side of one while trying to insert it into a captive ring. Still a good buy though and very versatile.
