A lot of piercings have the flexibility to switch from stud to ring. This gives you the opportunity to switch up your style much more often, as you can pair studs and rings with various different outfits.
If you have a nose piercing, you may opt to wear a simple nose stud for day to day wear. For the evening, change to a pretty coloured ring when you go out. For those too squeamish to face the needle, there is also a wide range of fake body jewellery that clips on.
