How to remove captive bead ring
If you have a lot of piercings and plan to replace your jewelry, I strongly suggest that you invest in a pair of ring opening pliers and ring closing pair of pliers. They are exactly like a special tool designed to remove and closing RBM.
Now, place the tip of the needle-nosed wrapped into the center of the CBR and gently pry open the ring. Be prepared for beads / balls falling out with the other hand holding under the ring to catch it. Once the beads have fallen, there will be space in the captive bead ring. If the space does not look big enough, you can pry it open a little more with your pliers, being careful not to warp the shape of a ring.
Once you have a large enough space, you can release the CBR. Slowly turn the ring – don’t pull. When you rotate the CBR, the space will reach a point where it can be carefully pulled away from the skin. If the space is not big enough, turn it back and open it again and try again. Don’t to force it out.
• Going to a professional is the best policy. Don’t try this unless you are very knowledgeable about piercings or does not have other choice but to do it yourself.
• Don’t attempt to remove or change your jewelry if the piercing isn’t healed, which usually takes at least 6-8 weeks with most piercings. If you do, you can end up having to start the healing process again.
• Don’t remove your jewelry if you believe you are infected piercing. Removing jewelry just cause more problems if the piercing is infected. See piercer or doctor for advice about captive bead ring.
