Custom Cabochon Belly Button RingIf you’re looking for custom belly button rings, you’ve come to the right place! Painful Pleasures offers the largest selection of custom belly rings around, with more length, gauge and style options than any other online body jewelry company.

Some of our custom belly button rings are what you might call “limited” custom. We stock belly rings in thousands of gauge-length-style combos so you can make a selection that meets your custom specifications, but without having to wait for a custom belly ring to be ordered, made and delivered. We also offer a wide variety of truly custom belly button rings, where you choose from a larger variety of options than we can carry, and we’ll have your custom belly ring made to order for you. With many of our custom belly rings, you can choose your desired length, ball size, material, stone color or type, and thread pattern (i.e. internal threading vs. external threading) to create a really unique belly button ring that will fit you perfectly. Custom belly rings may take anywhere from 2 – 6 weeks to have crafted and delivered to you, but they’re worth the wait!

You’ll find custom navel rings throughout our Belly Rings category. We’ve also created a custom belly ring style guide for you below, so that you can go right to the custom options within a particular subset of belly button rings, like gold belly rings and cabochon belly rings (shown to the right).


Selecting the Right Belly Ring Style for You

Before you start shopping, you may want to read over our Choosing the Right Belly Button Ring blog post, which walks you through how to pick the best combination of material, style and accents based on your taste, wardrobe, activities, skin sensitivities, and other factors. Why do those things matter? Style is really a matter of personal preference, but things like your activities and skin sensitivities can dramatically impact what type of belly ring you can comfortably wear. For instance, if you play field hockey, you may only be able to wear a navel ring if you get one made of flexible BioPlast.

Unless you already know what type of material and style belly ring you want, Choosing the Right Belly Button Ring is the best place to start your search. It will guide you through the decision process by first outlining what you want and need, and narrowing down your options from there.
