A nose ring is a great way to add a pop of colour or a unique design to your piercing. However, it’s important to note that a nose ring is one of the most delicate pieces of jewellery you’ll own. Consequently, it’s crucial to choose a quality nose ring that won’t damage your piercing or cause irritation.
The most popular type of nose ring is the hoop style, which can be made of a variety of materials including wire and pins. To make a hoop ring, you’ll want to shape a wire or pin into a round shape that’s large enough to fit over your nostril.
Step 1: Place the wire or pin on a flat surface, ideally near a mirror. You can use a pen or pencil to help you bend it around, forming a circle.
Next, insert the end of the wire into your piercing. Once this is complete, twist it open and closed, making sure the hoop ends are twisted together without any gaps between them.
If you’re not sure how to do this properly, watch the video below for some simple tips on how to insert a hoop stud correctly.
There are two basic styles of hoop nose rings: those that close the gap with a bead and ones that have a ball at the end. Both are very easy to insert into your nose piercing and don’t require the use of special tools.
Another type of hoop ring is the seamless ring, which has no clasp to close it. This is a very comfortable and stylish option to wear in your nose piercing.
