This stainless steel captive bead ring is made from implant grade 316LVM F-138 stainless steel and has a hematite bead. This ring is annealed making it easy to bend for insertion like all Industrial Strength captive bead rings.

Hardest bead to get out, and even harder to get in, Although, I really like the color of the hematite bead, and its got quite a shine. Overall, nice design but you need to work out a way to stick the ball back in.
The bead is really lodged in there- I had to use needle-nose pliers to loosen it enough to open it. However, now that I've loosened the hoop a bit, its great! The bead isn't too hard to get in, but there's no risk of it coming out accidentally. Its a really nice, simple piece at a great price.
