Reverse belly button rings are to be inserted upwards from the bottom of the piercing and the dangle hangs down over the navel.
They can have either dangling charms or a curved bar with lots of gems on it – this is a classic style reverse navel ring.
From afar it looks as if a captive bead ring has been inserted – it creates an illusion of a full ring.In fact, it’s better than a full ring – it doesn’t project too far away from navel, thus reducing the likelihood of catching to something.
In this picture you can an example of a reverse gold belly button ring. You see – it gives the illusion of a full ring but isn’t.
Reverse belly button rings have a totally different concept to common belly rings because the centre of the piece of jewelry sits above the navel instead of its center.
