This niobium hoop features a silver scarab beetle captive bead design that measures approximately 10.6mm (wide) x 5.7mm (tall). It works well for septum, conch, helix and daith piercings. 
  • The scarab beetle bead design will take up approximately 3mm of the inner diameter when worn as septum jewelry or as a daith earring.
  • Each bead is carefully antiqued and then given a hand-brushed finish to highlight the blackened details.
  • Completely nickel-free! The hoop is made out of type-2 commercially pure niobium, and the bead is made out of Argentium silver.
  • All of my hoops have completely smooth ends for comfortable and safe insertion. 
  • 16 gauge (AWG) = approximately 1.2mm thick

Sold individually for healed piercings only.

Returns + Exchanges:

Body jewelry sales are final. Read my full shop policies here: Returns & Shipping

Please ask all size related questions prior to ordering, I'm always happy to help! Send me a message here: Email Me. I respond to emails within 24 hours Mon-Fri, weekends excluded.

Fabrication Time + Shipping:

I make everything one at a time by myself. Your jewelry will take me approximately 4 weeks to make before it is shipped. Business days are Monday-Friday, weekends and holidays excluded (business days are not consecutive calendar days).

Shipping within the US costs a flat $3.50 for orders under $36 (orders over $36 ship for free). Shipping costs for locations outside of the US vary from $9-$17. All orders are shipped via USPS First Class with a tracking number.

Cancellations + Size Changes:

Cancellations and requests to change the size must be sent within 48 hours of the sale. Otherwise, I will have already started working on the order. I am a single maker, there is no team behind Metal Lotus.

I may still be able to change the size after 48 hours depending on how far I've gotten on the order. However, I reserve the right to refuse order cancellations, or charge a 15% restocking fee, when I have already spent money purchasing supplies for an order and spent time working on it.

Please don't request a cancellation the week that your order will be shipping as the jewelry has already been made custom to the size you picked out by this time.
