Magnetic Nose Rings

Updated on March 14, 2018

Having gone through the pain and hassle (more than once) of poorly done piercings that got infected, I am always looking for a better way.

Choosing Magnetic Nose Rings vs. Real Piercings

There's a fair amount of debate going on about what is better for anyone interested in nose rings. Should you get a permanent hole in your body or maybe go with a more removable option?

There are many impressive looking magnetic nose rings currently available, and because of this, many people question why anyone would choose pierced style nose rings.

Can it be the look? Could it be the feel? Is it the statement? The end result is that there's beauty in either choice and neither side of the debate is right or wrong.

The rest of this article aims to discuss both sides of the issue.

Magnetic Nose Ring Limitations

Real piercings afford real choice.

Magnetic nose studs allow a person to enjoy the beauty or look of a nose piercing even if they are unable to have the "real deal" for whatever reason.

Magnetic nose rings also significantly reduce the risks of infections, which are common among those who have pierced noses.

A magnetic nose ring comes with some drawbacks. Magnets are only so powerful, at least at this point in time, and most of the magnetic studs are usually relatively small. For anyone considering larger nose rings, this may not be your best option.

You can usually find a wider selection of styles and materials available for individuals who have actual piercings.

If you are looking to wear nose rings to fit different moods on different days, then you are more likely to have a better opportunity to do so by taking the plunge, or piercing, as the case may be.

Nose ring jewelry can be beautiful, exotic, or even down-right frightening to some. Whether or not you buy colorful magnetic nose rings or clear nose studs, make certain you are getting nose jewelry that creates the statement you would like to send so you can get the greatest level of enjoyment from your investment - whatever side of the debate you happen to fall on.

Two Sides to the Magnetic Nose Rings Story

Nose ring infections are an issue to address.

The other side of the story is there is some degree of bias among those who've gone through the "pain" (temporary though it may be) of a true piercing versus those who are using magnetic nose rings.

Nose rings and temporary nose studs generally look different and are usually fairly easy to recognize by those in the know.

Some people who have gone through body piercings are quick to recognize fake nose rings and have a certain amount of disdain for those who wear them.

But no one should wear nose rings or even magnetic nose rings to impress others. This is something you should only do because it's what you want to do.

      Well, seems you learn something new every day. Didn't know these existed! Sounds like a much better idea than punching holes through the only body we have.

      I had no idea magnet nose rings even existed, but it's good for people to have the option, I think.

      Why would anybody put a ring in their nose?

      Well, this is new to me. I have no extra holes in my body. Can't really understand the appeal.

      No need to Pierce when we have magnetic nose rings.

      @AstroGremlin: Sounds like you like neither permanent piercings nor tattoos...:)

      I actually prefer permanent piercings and tattoos, especially in prominent locations. They can save SO much time in a job interview to determine an applicant's faulty judgement without a lot of questions.

      Great idea, especially for the very young, who might regret a piercing later.

      Not that I'm into piercing of any kind, but the magnetic kind of rings seems like a nice alternative.

      Thanks Vineliner

      I kept scratching my nose while I was reading this.

      Great information

      This is awesome! You reminded me of a funny incident where John & I ran into a financial advisor one day who suddenly was sporting a nose ring - and I recall feeling a tad bit surprised. He began to laugh and reminded us it was Halloween (we ran into him during an autumn street festival) - and he said it was magnetic! Not that we cared if it was real or not - but it seemed out of character for this particular individual. I loved it! Totally squid blessed! :) Kath

      These are a great idea and a superb product for anyone thinking about getting their nose pierced before they actually do it.

      @raahbin: Hmmm, never thought of using soda to clean out a nose piercing! Thanks for giving me a chuckle as well!

      @vineliner57: Well, now that the stinging has subsided from when the soda I was drinking shot OUT of my nose as I read your post, I would like to thank you, for making me laugh that hard !!!

      @halloweenprops: Me either until a few months ago. I wonder if anyone has got to laughing real hard and inhaled one of them? Probably...

      This is a good idea. Many jobs dealing with the general public prohibit employees from wearing face jewelry. Magnetic nose rings would be an outstanding option for these folks as well as kids who want to experiment with a look with their parents' blessings! Cheers~cb

      I've got 9 piercings and I don't really have trouble with infections. I think magnetic nose studs are excellent especially for teens. I would certainly never mock someone who chose to wear them getting a piercing isn't macho at all to me. I like your balanced approach to this lens.

      My ears are pierced, but I hardly ever wear jewelry.

      I might consider Ear Rings that you can just clip on something like that.

      I used to use magnetic earrings since my dad wouldn't let me get my ears pierced. As an adult, I don't care enough to bother, but it would be fun to fool my kids with a fake nose piercing.

      @TriviaChamp: These are great for those not wanting to deal with the pain and expense of actual piercings. Thanks for stopping by.

      I never even knew that these existed... I think that they are a wonderful alternative to getting the actual piercing.
