Non-piercing cartilage rings offer a risk-free introduction into the world of body piercings. If you want to dip your toes into the body modification waters or convince someone else (your mom, perhaps?) that body piercing is right for you, try non-piercing cartilage rings on for size.
Non-piercing cartilage rings give you an idea of what it will feel like to sport one or more body piercings. Wearing them for a “trial period” will let you know whether you’re comfortable with the idea of body modification. They’ll also “break you in” so that when you start wearing real cartilage rings, you’ll already feel comfortable.
Clip-on non-piercing cartilage earrings are lightweight and comfortable. Try starting out with a small, sterling silver earring with a tiny cubic zirconia stone. Maybe a non-pierced silver cartilage earring with a flirty heart design is more your style. These low-key designs are cute enough to get attention, but not overwhelming for your first time out.
Chic non-piercing cartilage rings aren’t restricted to your ears. Try them out anywhere you like, in public or in the privacy of your own home. If you’ve been playing with the idea of any form of body modification, this may be the best way to test it out.
If you’re considering a lip ring, try a non-piercing cartilage version before taking the plunge. Since lip piercings are a little more dramatic than cartilage earrings, trying a non-piercing version out will help you decide if you’re comfortable with the real thing. You’ll also have a chance to gauge others’ reactions before paying for an actual lip piercing.
Non-piercing cartilage rings aren’t just for body modification trial runs. If you feel like being playful, wear one on a night out with friends. Or if you want to (temporarily!) freak out your parents, sit down at the dinner table with a non-piercing cartilage ring in your lip.
This form of body jewelry is great-looking, practical and affordable. It’s also incredibly easy to take on and off. Whether you use it to see if you’re ready for body modification or just want to wear some attention-getting eye candy, non-piercing cartilage rings are a playful alternative to permanent body jewelry.
