Endless-style nose rings and hoops are easy to open and close! If you’ve never worn an endless ring before, I recommend practicing the motion a few times before actually trying to insert your hoop.
Quick Tip: After you close the hoop, the ends should join neatly together and there should not be any sharp edges. If the join doesn’t feel smooth when you run your finger over it, or it pinches after you have inserted the hoop, then you do not have the ends lined up well.
The twisting motion is very important. If you try to pull the ends of the hoop away from each other in a horizontal motion, then you will distort the shape of the hoop. Once this happens, the ends will never line up correctly again. Opening pliers for captive bead rings are not the right tool to use on this style of jewelry – you will ruin it! I’ve included a slightly exaggerated example of what happens when you open an endless hoop incorrectly at the end of the following video.
