Some of the heavier gauge captive rings (14 gauge and higher) may require a tool to get them opened to remove the ball. Here is a link to our Captive Ring Tools and Pliers.

Implant Grade Titanium Grade: Ti6ALV-ELI (implant grade) ASTM F-136-02 (Grade 23). Titanium is becoming the metal of choice for piercing jewelry because of its superior machinability and light weight (45% lighter than steel). Titanium is almost completely can be ideal for individuals sensitive to other materials, such as surgical stainless steel.

This product is made from solid titanium, not stainless steel coated with titanium. The titanium is colored by a process called Anodization. Anodizing is a process whereby an electrical current is passed through the metal and oxide buildup on the surface of the metal causes the color to change to vivid metallic colors.
