Gold Septum Ring - Nicknames and Piercing Location

The basic shape of the jewelry is traditionally round and so, names such as: infinity, hoop or seamless are common as well.
The septum is the wall that separates the nostrils, the middle part of the nose. It is a very sensitive area as it accumulates many nerves. The ‘sweet spot’ is a small piece of skin located between the cartilage and the bottom of the nose, and is the one that is being pierced.
The cartilage is not commonly being pierced.
The ‘ring’ base of the piercing is the most common shape of septum rings, but a drop shape, a triangle, stirrup or square could be found as well.
An ornament made of gold, silver and other metals, diamonds, precious and semi precious stones, pearls and so are added to the basic ring shape of the jewelry.
