What Colors Do Horseshoes and Captives Come In?

Horseshoe rings and captive rings come in a wide variety of colors, including silver, gold, black, and even rose gold, which is a huge trend this year. It’s also quite common for the ring itself to remain a standard silver or black, but the balls will be a contrasting color, like purple, blue, or even glow in the dark!

What Gauge Sizes Do Horseshoes and Captive Rings Come In?

Since this type of body jewelry is so versatile, the gauge size is pretty standard. Horseshoes and captives typically come in either 16 or 18 gauge, which can fit in most ear, nipple, nose, eyebrow, and belly button piercings. They’re perfect for septum, cartilage, and belly button piercings. However, if you are unsure about your actual gauge size, it’s always best to consult your piercer.

What Are the Differences Between a Horseshoe and a Captive?

The main difference between a horseshoe and a captive is its shape. While a captive bead ring closes as a full circle, a horseshoe embodies a true horseshoe shape which is a little more closed than a “U” shape. Also, captive typically had one bead while a horseshoe has two on both end points.
