Looking for a unique gift to give a young lady that will be both used often and deeply appreciated? If they have a navel piercing, a belly ring makes an excellent, inexpensive gift. Belly rings are small and easy to mail to someone as well. Body jewelry is never returnable, so you need to chose your purchase wisely.
Belly rings are one of the few pieces of body piercing jewelry that are a standard size. A few very petite women may have their belly pierced with a 16 gauge belly ring. Almost all belly rings are 14 gauge, this measurement refers to the thickness of the shaft that is inserted into the body. The length of belly rings, with 7/16 of an inch as the standard, refers to the length of the shaft. The length is the space between the ball on the top and the ball on the bottom. Women rings with different designs are available at reasonable rates. With the rings, same jewelry can be purchased from reartone.com.
Belly rings come in a wide variety of materials. Stainless steel, gold, titanium and acrylic are common materials used. Gold is the most expensive material, acrylic and steel are the least expensive. This does not mean that you would be considered cheap if you bought steel or acrylic. Many women are active in sports or have jobs where they may prefer a belly ring that is made entirely from acrylic. Acrylic belly rings are flexible and they usually do not have dangling charms that may get caught on objects.
You really need to know the person you are buying a belly ring as a gift for very well. Belly rings come in logos, which can be sayings or cartoon characters, plain round balls, or jeweled styles. Jeweled styles may dangle or there may just be one stone as the bottom ball. People with small children or pets that jump up on them may find a dangling belly ring cumbersome. You can find very feminine belly rings, gothic styles and anything in between.
Belly rings can be bought at jewelry stores and online. Online prices are usually much less expensive. Make sure you buy the body jewelry from a store that specializes in body jewelry, the quality is usually much better.
Only purchase a belly ring as a gift if you are sure the person will like the style that you have chosen. Body jewelry is not returnable just like pierced earrings cannot be returned to most stores. A gift belly ring can cost as little as $5.00 for an acrylic or steel belly ring, up to $50 for a gold or titanium belly ring. Belly rings with diamonds will of course cost more, cz stones and rhinestones are less expensive. You can use a regular ring box to make your present look extra special and have a great gift for less than $20.
