Choosing the right threading for your jewelry

When buying body jewelry, especially online, you may come across the terms “Internally” threaded. Most standard body jewelry are “Externally” threaded. It’s important that you know the difference.

Externally threaded body jewelry has the thread on the end of the barbell, and it is placed inside a threaded hole in the ball. This means that when the jewelry is being passed through the piercing, the threads also pass through it, and then the ball is screwed into place.
