Understanding Threadless Body Jewelry
Threadless body jewelry refers to a type of jewelry that does not have threading to keep the jewelry secured in place. Most pierced people are familiar with the struggle of screwing on a septum ring or lip stud. It can be so frustrating!! Threadless jewelry is a great alternative to threaded jewelry because it is super easy to insert and remove.
Unlike jewelry that has a top or ball that needs to be twisted in place, threadless jewelry is designed with a push-fit system. It consists of two parts: a post and a top, or "end." The end is typically thinner and tapered, while the post has a small hole. To assemble, the jewelry top is gently pushed into the hole in the post, creating a secure connection. This design eliminates the need for threading.
Threadless jewelry relies on tension to stay in place. The slight bend in the pin of the top piece creates the tension needed for the two pieces to stay together.
Threadless Vs. Threaded Jewelry
1. Ease of Insertion
Unlike threaded jewelry that requires immense patience in order to screw on and secure in place-- threadless jewelry can easily be secured through simply pushing into place. There is no need to twist jewelry to take on or off.
2. Reduced Risk of Infection
Threaded jewelry can harbor bacteria in the grooves of the threads, increasing the risk of infection in fresh or unhealed piercings. Threadless jewelry's smooth surface and push-fit system significantly reduce this risk. Additionally, the absence of threads makes cleaning and maintaining the jewelry easier.
Threaded jewelry can become damaged or have the threads stripped over time. The threadless design, on the other hand, is less prone to wear and tear.
