These piercing rings consist of a ring that closes with a captive ball. … The ball has a tiny dimple on either side, which the ends of the ring fit into. The pressure of the ring keeps the ball in place, making ball closure rings (BCRs) one of the most secure types of jewellery.

Captive bead rings are a common style of body jewelry that can be really irritating to insert and remove if you have never done it before.
