Common Questions About Seamless Nose Hoops and L Bend Studs


What is a Seamless Nose Hoop?

It’s a seamless ring with no clasp. The ends are twisted, not pulled, away from each other and then the ring is closed shut. Each end is rounded so that they perfectly align up. If worn properly your hoop should not hurt you. IF you struggle with keloids often then please reach out before your purchase a seamless nose hoop because if they aren’t inserted and closed correctly they can cause irritation. I do wear a seamless nose hoop almost everyday so if inserted correctly you should be able to wear it for daily wear comfortably.

How Do I Insert a Seamless Nose Hoop?

Inserting a seamless nose hoop can have a small learning curve if you are new to seamless nose hoops but after a while it is super easy.

Make sure that your hands are clean first and make sure you TAKE YOUR TIME. You can even ask someone to help or I suggest grabbing a pair of tweezers to help assist.

Locate the split in the ring and grab the metal on either side with both hands. Move your right hand clockwise and your left hand so that the ends twist away from each other in a subtle spiral. Only twist the hoop open enough to create a gap around the pierced portion of your nose and DO NOT pull the ends away from each, only twist. If opened wrong it can distort the shape of the hoop making it almost impossible to return to its circular shape, which will result in a very uncomfortable hoop to wear and I am not responsible for distorted hoops because they were opened the wrong way. I have also been making hoops for so long that I will know if you opened your hoop wrong so please reach out if you think you are going to ruin your hoop and someone from the Dasanni Speaks team will try their best to help out.

Now slide the ring through your nose swinging the hoop all the way around until the nose hoop seam is close to the opening of your nose.  

Use your fingers OR use tweezers to assist to gently twist both ends of the ring back toward each other, until they are brought together. Make sure the ends are brought as close as possible. This will keep the hoop secure, and the edges of the ends from scraping your nose.

If you have trouble or need more help please reach out to customercare@dasannispeaks.com and someone from the Dasanni Speaks Team will assist you.

How Do I Insert and L Bend Nose Stud?

An L Bend Nose Stud is one of the easiest styles of nose rings to insert. 

Putting in a L Bend nose stud is a 2-step easy process. First, insert the end of the stud into your piercing hole. Next, raise the ring 90º upwards and push the remaining portion of the stud, and you’re done!

What Are The Difference In Gauges?
Gauges can be kind of confusing but the higher the gauge the thinner the hoop and the lower the gauge the thicker. The typical gauge you get when you get your nose pierced is an 18g but people typically downsize to a 20g due to the limited options offered in 18g. I don’t recommend wearing any jewelry thinner than a 20g. You risk injury because the wire is so thin if pressure is applied correctly it can cut you. But gauge sizes are definitely a personal preference.

What Size Diameter Hoop Should I Get?
Paying attention to hoop diameter is important because you don’t want your nose hoop fitting too tight or too loose. The most common hoop diameters are 5/16 (8mm) or 3/8 (10mm). The size of your nose is not an accurate way to chose a nose hoop. How far your nose piercing was placed away from the tip of your nostril is what determines what diameter hoop you need. You can either measure a hoop your currently have with a ruler and count how many mm are inside of the hoop or measure how far your nose hole is from the tip of your nose. It definitely isn’t easy to measure but since I don’t offer refunds or exchanges on wrong size hoops it is definitely worth taking the time to measure. I also handcraft all the nose hoops down to the hoops the beads are wrapped around so I am able to offer 8mm, 9mm, 10mm and 12mm hoop sizes.

Why Is There a Gap In My Nose Hoop?

A gap indicates that you pulled the nose hoop apart at some point instead of twisting the ends away. So if you think you may have problems please reach out or have someone help you.

What Should I Do If I Accidentally Distort My Hoop?

First of it is not the end of the world (if you are like me, LOL) and you may be able to fix it but you have to patient and take your time. If you find that you distorted your hoop try twisting the ends until the ends start to align up again. If you aren’t sure what I mean please reach out and I will do my best to help you. But I do not offer refunds or exchanged for distorted hoops. I have made HUNDREDS of these hoops and I am very meticulous with aligning the ends before I send them out so I know if you pulled instead of twisted so let me help you before you give up or don’t wear your hoop.

Is It Normal For My Nose Hoop To Hurt After Inserting It?

You should only change your nose ring if your piercing is HEALED and there should be minimum pain when changing your jewelry. A healed piercing takes around 4 months to heal but I would wait AT LEAST until 6 months for any 14KT Gold Filled/Sterling Silver Filled.  I’ve had my nose pierced for almost 20 years now and wear my jewelry daily and it still hurts sometimes when I change it but never for a prolonged time.  If your nose hoops hurts for an extended amount of time it could mean that you have the wrong size hoop. If your nose hoop is too small it will hurt and it will be uncomfortable. Once again please reach out BEFORE you order if you need help or have any questions at customercare@dasannispeaks.com. You are responsible for choosing the correct size.
