Internal Thread vs Threadless Jewellery

When it comes to body jewelry, there are two main types: threadless and internally threaded. Each type has its own set of benefits and drawbacks, making them suitable for different piercings and personal preferences. In this blog post, we'll explore the differences and benefits of threadless and internally threaded jewelry.

Threadless Jewelry:

Threadless jewelry, also known as "push-pin" or "pressure fit" jewelry, is designed to be easily inserted and removed from a piercing without the need for threads. This type of jewelry consists of two parts: a post with a straight pin and a decorative top with a snug-fitting opening. The top is inserted into the post, and the pressure from the snug fit holds the top in place.

Benefits of Threadless Jewelry:

Easy to Change: Threadless jewelry is incredibly easy to insert and remove, making it an ideal choice for piercings that require frequent jewelry changes, such as earlobe piercings. The jewelry can be changed quickly and without any tools, reducing the risk of damage or irritation to the piercing.

Comfortable to Wear: Since threadless jewelry does not have any threads, it is smooth and comfortable to wear. This makes it a great option for those with sensitive skin or piercings that are prone to irritation.

Versatile: Threadless jewelry comes in a variety of styles and sizes, making it a versatile choice for many piercings. The tops can be swapped out easily to create different looks, allowing you to customize your jewelry to your personal style.

Internally Threaded Jewelry:

Internally threaded jewelry is designed with a post that has threads on the inside, which screw into the decorative top. The decorative top screws onto the post from the front.

Benefits of Internally Threaded Jewelry:

Secure: Internally threaded jewelry is more secure than threadless jewelry, as the threads on the post keep the jewelry securely in place. This makes it a great choice for piercings that are prone to snagging or catching on clothing.

Smooth: The threads on internally threaded jewelry are located inside the post, making it smooth and comfortable to wear. This reduces the risk of irritation or discomfort.

Professional Look: Internally threaded jewelry is often seen as more professional and high-end than other options such as externally threaded. This is because the threads are hidden, creating a sleek and polished look.

In conclusion, both threadless and internally threaded jewelry have their own unique benefits and drawbacks. When choosing between the two, it's important to consider your personal preferences, the type of piercing you have, and the level of comfort and security you require.
