Threaded vs. Threadless Jewelry: What's the Difference?

  • Threadless jewelryhas tops and posts that are sealed by pressure and can also be called pushback jewelry.
  • Threaded jewelry has tops and posts that are sealed together by screwing in the piece.
  • Externally threaded jewelry has threading at the end of the post, resulting in the ball screwing onto the top of the post.
  • Internally threaded jewelry has screws attached directly to it, which screws into the end of the post.
  • Threadless jewelry is generally easier to insert and remove, but may be more prone to falling out. Threaded jewelry is generally more secure, but can be more difficult to insert and remove.
  • No matter your preference, it's important to do your research and choose the type of jewelry that works best for your piercing and lifestyle.
