This listing is for one niobium captive ring intended to be used with the captive beads that I sell. I do not guarantee that it will work with beads that you buy from a different shop.
These captive bead rings have an opening that is approximately 6mm across (approx. 1/4"). They are not compatible with the bezel set 3mm gemstone captive beads in my shop. You can only use this hoop with the captive beads that have a 6mm coil on the back of the design.
Completely nickel-free! The hoop is made out of type-2 commercially pure niobium.
Choose between untreated niobium, which is a grey color, or black niobium. The hoop pictured is untreated niobium. The black niobium option is given a heat treatment to darken the color, it is still pure niobium - it will come with a satin finish.
All of my hoops have completely smooth ends for comfortable and safe insertion.
