Nose Ring Jewelry Tips

Updated on February 17, 2018

Are Nose Rings Right For My Lifestyle?

Men and women coming from all walks of life are beginning to jump onto the nose ring bandwagon.

This means nose piercings are finally beginning to gain a wider acceptance among more "mainstream" crowds.

A lot more businesses are beginning to accept nose rings that display some degree of discretion instead of requiring employees to go with clear or flesh colored nose rings while "on the clock."

Clear nose studs serve this purpose, but a lot of people want a little variety in their workday wardrobe when it comes to their body jewelry. This article will explore some of the options available to those interested in sporting a nose ring.

Finding Nose Rings That Fit Your Personality

Changing Jewelry For Changing Moods.

There are a lot of popular nose rings readily available on the market these days, and you should take the time to explore all of them to find a few that truly fit your style.

The great thing about nose rings is that you can change them (after the initial healing process has taken place) to match your mood or any particular occasion.

Which means you can choose Indian nose jewelry or check out exotic nose rings if that is what suits your mood for the evening. If you would like something more menacing, a bone nose ring may fit the occasion.

For something a bit more formal when nose stud jewelry or piercings might stand out, there is always the choice of clear nose rings to get you through the night.

Choose Nose Rings That Match Your Lifestyle

How do you select the right nose ring that fits in with your work lifestyle and your play lifestyle? Remember that a number of jobs and recreational activities pose a threat to some types of nose piercings and rings.

Nose rings like corkscrews that stick out too far can be problematic in some jobs and aren't really appropriate in certain social settings. If you're concerned with fitting in and still want to wear nose jewelry, then you may want to try something a little less "visible" in these situations.

As far as physical activities are concerned, some nose rings pose the risk of ripping, tearing, or stretching the skin around your nose as well as an increase in the risk for infection. If you engage in sporting activities you may want to keep this in mind when choosing your nose ring.

In the event that a certain amount of discretion is called for, then you would do well to find a nice variety of white gold or platinum nose studs, gold nose rings, diamond nose studs, or an inconspicuous hoop nose ring.

These types of small studs are very discrete and work with different styles of wardrobes with a relatively wide range of versatility.

      I like the tiny diamond ones on the side, those are pretty. I don't care for the ones that go inside the nose like a nose ring. It reminds me of a stuffed pig for a dinner and a large ring in the nose, maybe I watch to much tv lol

      I use tea tree oil to keep any possible infection at bay... but I have never had one :) I always wear my nose piece, and, although I have tried all different kinds, the one I wear now is a simple bendable silver one... it goes into an L shape... so easy and it almost never comes out :) Blessed!

      I think nose ring jewelry is really beautiful. Don't know if I would go for it personally, but I like it on others.

      My daughter has a pieced nose. At first I was not a fan, but I really do like it now.
