I'm disappointed. These rings are not quite of the quality I used to expect from Anatometal, I think due to a couple of factors, though I'm not quite sure what's responsible. Either the steel of the rings is not resilient enough to maintain the tightness of the gap after allowing the bead into place, or the detents in the beads are too wide/deep, or both whatever the causes, it's impossible to get the beads to seat tightly in the rings, and one of them is way too loose for me to feel comfortable using it for my application, both for sanitary reasons and due to concerns that the bead might become dislodged while the ring was...in a place where you definitely don't want a steel bead becoming dislodged. And you can't return these products once the package has been opened, and you can't discover a problem like this without opening the package, so I guess I'm just out of luck and some money. I love the people at Steel Navel, but I'm not always thrilled with the products they sell, alas.

This CBR is an impressive piece. It's simple and sleek, and very nice to the touch. You can tell that it's high quality just by looking at it, let alone feeling it. It's very easy to get the ball in place, once you get used to it. I would recommend practicing it several times out of your piercing, if you haven't used CBRs or similar products before. The size was exactly what I was shooting for, and sat very nicely in my helix piercing.

They were exactly what I needed. My boyfriend got his ears priced and didn't like the post style earring they used because they were hard to clean. I suggested the small captive bead and he loved them.

Anatometal makes my favorite captives, hands down. The bead was so easy to remove and replace and the shine is fantastic. I have bought captives from Anatometal before and I will always go back to them.
