Body piercing has long been a form of self-expression, and in recent years, it has grown into an art form. The rise of body jewelry’s popularity has brought with it various types, from classic hoops to more daring options. One such example is threadless jewelry, also known as push-fit jewelry, which has revolutionized the body piercing industry. Threadless jewelry was invented in 1997 by NeoMetal, and since then, has gained a significant following in the industry. This article aims to dive deeper into the magic of threadless jewelry, its unique features, and why professional body piercers and enthusiasts alike have come to love it.

Tension-based Magic

Threadless jewelry is unique in that it doesn’t have any threaded pieces. Instead, it is held together by tension. This tension is created by bending the pin on the decorative end, which then holds it to the labret post or barbell. This design makes it seemingly effortless to interchange the decorative end with another. It is versatile, easy to maintain and adds an element of fancy to any piercing.

Adjustable Tension

Threadless jewelry’s tension is customizable. As previously mentioned, bending the pin on the decorative end creates the tension that holds the two pieces together. Of course, one can bend the pin more, creating more tension and a more secure fit. Conversely, bending it less creates a looser fit that is easier to remove if need be. The adjustability of the tension makes it easy for body piercers and piercing enthusiasts to personalize their jewelry to their comfort level.

Variety of Styles

The flexibility of threadless jewelry design enables manufacturers to offer different styles that cater to different demographics. There are unique styles that feature gems, cabochons, opals, and pearls, among other decorative elements, which enhances the beauty of the wearer’s piercings. Threadless jewelry forms include curved and circular barbells, labret posts, among others, for different piercing placements.

Quality Material

Threadless jewelry supplied at Trinity is made from top-tier quality materials that don’t compromise the wearer’s health over time. Labret posts, which are one of the unique formats of threadless jewelry, are made from titanium 6AL4V ELI ASTM F-136. The attachments available are titanium, cobalt chromium (plated or not), and 18k solid gold. These materials’ hypoallergenic properties guarantee that there are no adverse reactions to the user.


Threadless jewelry is designed to last long, providing a comfortable and secure fit that can withstand the wear and tear of daily use. The absence of threading and fixed mechanical attachments guarantees less chance of thread damage or breakage, unlike traditional jewelry designs. Investing in threadless jewelry ensures a practical and efficient addition to one’s long-term jewelry collection. Some designs are delicate and should be treated as such.

As the body piercing industry expands, so does the need for body jewelry pieces that are versatile, durable, and customizable. Threadless jewelry has proven time and again to tick all the boxes of a practical and efficient body piercing accessory. With the variety of styles, adjustability of tension, and utilization of quality material, threadless jewelry has transformed traditional piercing culture into a sophisticated and luxurious art form. So, the next time you want to personalise your piercing collection, be sure to include threadless jewelry - the magic behind it will elevate your piercing experience beyond your expectations.
